Samsung is reportedly just a few weeks away from unveiling its next high-end flagship, the Galaxy Note 10. According to people familiar with the plans, speaking to CNet, Samsung will host a special Unpacked event at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York on 7th August. This is the same venue Samsung used for last year's Note 9 launch. At the time of writing Samsung hasn't even obliquely teased this Unpacked event so it is possible the plans could still change ahead of the date put forward.
The Samsung Galaxy Note line aren't as big sellers as the Galaxy S series but they do have a devoted following and pioneered the large 'phablet' designs that are mainstream today. Still, most large screen competitors don't put as much effort into the 'Note' taking capabilities of their devices as this S Pen packing smartphone. Samsung likely hopes its Note 10 can make a big enough impact to cover up some of the damage to its brand and bottom line caused by the $2000 Galaxy Fold debacle.
If wondering what to expect with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, one can cast your eyes towards Twitter leaksters like Ice Universe (who has shared quite a lot of Note 10 material recently), OnLeaks, and the Samsung focussed sites like SamMobile. Pondering over these sources you will find strong rumours that there will be two Note 10 devices launched in August; the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Pro. These devices sport 6.3-inch and 6.75-inch displays respectively. Other recent leaks point to the use of a rolled-side-edges Infinity-O display with a single centralised selfie-cam cut-out in both cases.
Right now there are quite a few rumours swirling around about whether the Note 10 will be the first in the line to do away with the 3.5mm headphone jack. However, an important improvement after killing off the removable battery functionality (Note 5) is that the newest device may come with a substantial 4,300mAh cell. Other notable rumours are that the S Pen could be equipped with its own camera, the Note 10 could sport four rear cameras, and it might be a buttonless device…
