You'd never guess Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 unveiling date


Ladies and gents, the big, elegant, bezel-busting Galaxy Note 10 is just around the corner! Korean media is reporting today that Samsung has chosen the week of August 10 as the Note 10 announcement event date (duh), which explains why rumors and renders of the handset are getting closer and closer to the target. 

Another indirect confirmation for an unveiling around the August 10 mark is that last year, the Note 9 was announced on August 9, and its release date was on August 24, so the Note 10's launch date could very well be pegged for August 25th this time around.

Samsung is gearing up to announce multiple models, as is trendy this year, since the 5G modems aren't yet incorporated in chipsets like the Snapdragon 855 but have to be slapped on as additional components. This is a stopgap measure until 5G rolls out in more places and the modems get integrated into system chips, which will likely happen next spring at the earliest.

That is why this year we may be about to see a smaller, 6.3" Note with one less camera, likely for the European market, and a larger, Note 10 Pro with a 6.8" display that will carry the 5G torch forward in the US. The camera situation may mimic what we saw with the S10 family - a triple set on the S10+, and a quadruple one on the S10 5G - just mounted vertically, not horizontally.

In addition, the front-facing shooter will be positioned in a hole at the middle of the display way up at the top, so both of the Note 10 models should have a pretty impressive screen-to-body ratio given the drastically shrunk bezels, as well as the curved edge displays.

Why would Samsung launch Note 10 without 5g in Europe when 3 countries at the old continent already have 5g commercial services running?? It doesn't make sense.

Its Samsung, they never make sense. Why did they roll out the 10 yr anniversary S line with the same camera, memory tech they used for years? At least Apple rolled out Face ID and other stuff to make it a true pivot model year.

Note 10 Pro will put all other phones to shame in 2019 and probably the first half of 2020... It's a must cop for me...

Am currently using the 7 Pro now and it is a hell of a phone but nothing still doesn't compare to the Note line. And the hole punch doesn't bother me at all as my S10+ pill shaped hole was fine..... To Me...

Is the punch hole display your only argument?....

It's not about hole-punch camera. Note put everything to shame long ago when they made Samsung MST, S-Pen and Gear VR. You just missed it while watching yourself twerking on Instagram on your back-then-already-outdated iPhone 5. Grow up (c) Samsung.

Why do you guys argue about what phones people want? Mind your own damn business. It's getting so old. Nobody cares at all in the real world.

Why would you care? You just answered your own question: "mind your own damn business".

Well you never know what will happen, sammy is just trying harder: 2 variants really? I think the 6.8 is going into tablet territory.

No more headphone jack? It's time to switch to iPhone. It's the headphone jack that kept me with Samsung anyway.

Enjoy!

Is that really your excuse. If you really want a Jack, well the Note 8 and 9 have one. And Samsung as far as I know, has not confirmed no Jack. Until they do, then anything else is a guess. And you can buy USB tyoe C to 3.5MM that are if better quality than that piece if crap adapter Apple made. But go to Apple. If the Jack was really that much of a deal breaker, then you wasn't buying anyways.

I won't be a happy camper if it does not include a headphone jack and will definitely look to keep my Note 9 as long as possible. I wonder if any Note 4 are still available for purchase.

I'm curious why people are complaining about no headphone jack? Do people dont like to use wireless headsets ?

Id prefer it was still there. I have the galaxy buds from the s10 i got but sometimes i forget them and have wired headphones at work i could use just in case

Because alot of people have very expensive wired headphones, and wired sounds alot better than wireless.

Yes they sound good but not amazing. I have the SE846s and because there's no dedicated DAC in the Note 9 they dont sound amazing. So I stick them in my Astell and Kern. A proper DAC.
