Samsung is preparing to launch the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 later this year. In renders from OnLeaks, the device can be viewed in full without its 3.5mm audio port.
Last week Android Police told us that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will not get any buttons in the housing, but it also has to do without a 3.5mm audio port. That would start an era in which the 3.5 mm audio port will really disappear from all smartphones – after all, Samsung is one of the last manufacturers to use the port. As of today, OnLeaks has provided these rumors with images, based on leaked CAD designs from the Samsungs production lines. If the design turns out to be right, then Samsung prefers a radically different design with the Note 10 – the device becomes more square – compared to the current Note and S-series.
6.3-inch AMOLED panel
OnLeaks always works with external websites for placing the renders, this time they can be admired via 91Mobiles . If OnLeaks had the correct information, the device would measure 151 x 72 x 7.9 mm, a considerable difference with the dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which measures 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8 mm. Despite the smaller dimensions, Samsung would still be able to handle a fairly large screen with a 6.3-inch diagonal. There are no specifications for the screen yet, but there is a good chance that it will be an AMOLED screen. A single selfiecamera would also be found in the screen, this time in the middle – with the S10 it is still on the right.
In the renders of OnLeaks there is also the painful confirmation that the device will not contain a 3.5 mm port; this is normally on the bottom, while with the Note 10 only the speaker and USB-C port on the bottom will be found. In the case, we also miss the Bixby button for the first time since the Galaxy S8. On the left you can find both the volume and on / off button. It may be ‘fake buttons’, as we reported last week based on the message from Android Police . It is possible that Samsung makes the buttons work based on pressure sensitivity. Hopefully, Samsung tackles it better than HTC’s first attempt …
Then the back remains. Samsung also shows on the back that it will revamp its design for 2019. With the current S and Note series, the cameras are positioned horizontally at the rear. In OnLeaks’ renders of the Note 10 you can see that they are arranged vertically on the left, thus following a trend that it has already started with its Galaxy A series. Later this year, Samsung will officially announce the Note 10, probably just before the start of IFA 2019. Like every year, IFA will take place again at the end of August and the beginning of September. Quite little can be said about the prices, although the prices are probably higher than with Note 9.
