Samsung to reportedly unveil the Galaxy Note 10 line on August 7th

Samsung to reportedly unveil the Galaxy Note 10 line on August 7th
According to CNET, a source familiar with Samsung's plans says that the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro will take place on August 7th. It will occur during Samsung's next Unpacked event to be held at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, home to the NBA's Brooklyn Nets. It also is the location where Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 9 last year. This year, we expect to see four models introduced including the 4G LTE Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro, and the 5G versions of the same units.

The "standard" Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (SM-N970) is expected to carry a 6.3-inch curved AMOLED display. The version sold in the states will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform with the Exynos 9825 chipset under the hood almost everywhere else. A triple-camera setup is likely to be found on the rear of the device consisting of a 12MP wide-angle camera, 12MP telephoto camera, and a 16MP Ultra-wide camera. A 3400mAh battery will supply the power and there will be an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner. The standard 4G LTE Galaxy Note 10 is expected to be priced in the range of $1,100-$1,200. The 5G version of this phone will be model number SM-N971.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro (SM-N975) will carry a curved 6.7-inch AMOLED display, and have a Time of Flight (ToS) sensor in back beside the three cameras found on the standard model. This sensor measures how long an infrared light takes to bounce off a subject and return to the phone, allowing the device to compute more accurate depth information for the bokeh effect and for face mapping. An ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner will be on board, and the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will be equipped with a 4500mAh battery along with a 25W fast charger. The 5G version of this phone (SM-N976) has appeared on the Geekbench benchmark site twice with one of the units apparently heading to Verizon (SM-N976V). This model was equipped with the Snapdragon 855 SoC and included 12GB of RAM. The international version (SM-N976B) had the Exynos 9825 under the hood and 8GB of RAM.

Canceled Galaxy Fold pre-orders could turn into Galaxy Note 10 purchases


All four models will come with the S Pen. Last year, following a number of rumors, Samsung added Bluetooth LE support to the stylus allowing it to be used as a remote shutter for the Galaxy Note 9's camera and as a tool to remotely control streaming media. This year, things have been quiet on the S Pen front so we don't expect to see drastic changes here. Additionally, none of the four units will have a 3.5mm earphone jack nor will they have a Bixby button. And in an interesting design, the rear cameras will be mounted vertically along the left side of the rear. Last year's model used a camera housing that was placed horizontally on the phone's back panel. The Galaxy Note 10 line uses Sammy's Infinity-O display; this means that punch-holes are used for the phones' selfie snappers. 


From the looks of things, it appears that the Galaxy Note 10 will be introduced before the release of the Galaxy Fold. Considering that the latter was due to be released on April 26th, this was not expected. AT&T and Best Buy have canceled pre-orders for the foldable device, and Samsung has too unless it was expressly told not to by its customers; some of these consumers, willing to shell out $1,980 for the Galaxy Fold, might decide to save some money and purchase a Galaxy Note 10 model instead.

So for now, if you've been looking forward to the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 10, you should circle August 7th on your calendar. Last year, two weeks separated the August 9th unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9 and its launch on August 23rd. With that in mind, the Galaxy Note 10 could launch this year on August 21st.

It's crazy to me how the standard Note will cost $1,100 and will come with a screen that is actually smaller than the S10+ (if rumored specs are to be true).

Agreed. If these rumors are all in the ballpark, I don't think Note sales are going to be that great this year.

Looks like a skip year for Note lovers. Couldn't be much happier with my Note 9 so I've got no problem missing a model that takes backward steps.

3500 mAh battery for the standard one? My 150 dollar Redmi 7 has a 4000 mAh battery. I'm not going to shell out more for better battery life on the Pro. Samsung have lost their mind reducing the battery capacity.
