Samsung is set to launch the latest in the Galaxy Note series later today, and some major changes are happening. Thanks to leaks from various sources (even including Samsung itself), we know pretty much all there is to know about the devices.
The Galaxy S10 was a significant departure from the previous generations, featuring a hole punch in the display set to the side and adding a third device to the lineup of flagships. Despite the last few Notes going mostly unchanged, the Note 10 will see a redesign similar to its smaller brother.
First of all, there will now be two different models: The 6.3-inch Note 10 and the 6.8-inch Note 10 Plus. Both feature a single hole punch set dead center in the status bar, which is an odd choice. No dual front cameras like the Galaxy S10+. We’ll see a Snapdragon 855+ processor powering the devices in many regions too, while other regions may get a 7nm Exynos processor.
On the rear will be a triple camera setup, with a potential quad camera on the plus model. We’ll likely see a regular, telephoto, and wide angle camera at the very least with a potential addition of a ToF camera.
There will also be a 5G version of the device, initially exclusive to Verizon. This exclusivity likely won’t last but will give Verizon an edge in offering 5G devices.
Unfortunately, with these upgrades comes a major loss. Samsung has long been a supporter of the headphone jack but that seems to end with the Galaxy Note 10. Yes, you’ll be getting a dongle in the box.
