Samsung is being tipped to bring some radical changes to the Galaxy Note 10 line-up. The upcoming flagships are expected to get improved rear and front cameras.
After the difficulties that Samsung has faced with the Galaxy Fold, all eyes have now been firmly trained on the Galaxy Note 10 which is expected to be launched by the Southe Korean tech major in the coming days. Much like Galaxy S10e, the company is tipped to bring some radical changes to the Galaxy Note 10 line-up which will possibly include Galaxy Note 10, Note 10e, Note 10 Pro and possibly an even bigger Note 10 model.
With the Galaxy 10 Note getting close to becoming reality, tipster Ice Universe has revealed some interesting information about this highly anticipated device. According to the tipster, the Galaxy Note 10 will be “the optimization and perfection” of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 9.
New front and rear cameras
As opposed to the current generation Galaxy Note 9 that brings with it some bezels, the Galaxy Note 10, as per Ice Universe’s leaks, could be more in line with the Galaxy S10 as it is now being tipped to bring a 19:9 panel instead of the 18:5:9 one found on the Galaxy Note 9.
This new aspect ratio would allow the phone to come with a higher screen-to-body ratio than ever before, thus helping it look much more in sync with other flagship phones in 2019.
The move to a bezel-less front will also possibly mean a punch-hole display like the one on the S10 series. However, unlike the Galaxy S10 series which features the camera on the upper left of the display, Ice Universe claims Samsung’s upcoming device will feature the front camera in a new position.
Although he did not provide any information on the exact position of the camera, the hint possibly is that the lens could be in a more “symmetrical” position as opposed to the rather odd positioning on the S10 series. Talking about the camera cut-out, Ice Universe also claims that the Galaxy Note 10’s camera cutouts will be smaller than those on the Galaxy S10 series.
Apart from this, the new Galaxy Note device will also feature updated cameras in a new position at the back, hinting at the possibility of a vertical layout for the cameras. This setup could be positioned in the top-left corner of the phone, helping it successfully differentiate from the flagship Galaxy S10 range without raising battery constraints concerns.
Ice Universe has also revealed information on the cameras in the setup. While earlier there were reports that claimed the device could come with the new 64-Megapixel camera that Samsung unveiled a few days back, Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy Note 10 will borrow the Galaxy S10’s camera hardware entirely.
If this turns out to be true, the Galaxy Note 10 series will bring with them 12-megapixel variable aperture camera on the rear paired with optical image stabilisation and phase detection autofocus. There will also be a secondary 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization and a 2x optical zoom lens.
Paired alongside this will be a 16-megapixel camera coupled with a super-wide-angle lens. A dedicated Time-of-Flight sensor could also be included, however, this may be only seen on the larger Galaxy Note 10 Pro.
Apart from this, the phone is expected to feature Snapdragon 855 SoC in the US and Samsung’s comparable Exynos one in the rest of the world. There could also be UFS 3.0 storage on the phone and come with more than 25W fast charging support.
