The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 needs to pack a punch to obtain the series in the limelight. There aren’t many Galaxy Note 10 leaks or rumors as of this time, but we’ve build a list of what we want from Samsung as well as next flagship phablet to help propel the handset to the top level in the pile.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes packed with features and tech, yet in many ways it still feels as though a small upgrade on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Update: A Samsung Galaxy Note 10 leak points to four cameras about the back. Plus, we can easily look to the Galaxy S10 range for some hints of what can be expected.
So just as much as we love to it, we’re seeking more from your Samsung Galaxy Note 10. We want big, fundamental changes and upgrades that go further towards justifying its inevitably enormous cost.
We’ve listed some in our specific hopes below, to start with that you’ll find early rumors and educated guesses in the release date, specs and features from the Galaxy Note 10.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 release date and price
It’s likely how the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 launch date is going to be some point in August 2019, like modern times Samsung has announced new Galaxy Note handsets in August.
However, the actual part of the month does vary. The Galaxy Note 9 for example was announced on August 9 2018, though the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was announced on August 23 of 2017.
And even as soon as the Galaxy Note 10 is announced it’ll be at the very least two weeks before you buy it, so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t hit stores until late August or September 2019.
As for your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 price, the Note 9 starts at $1,000 (£899, AU$1,499) also it gets even more expensive if you’d like more storage plus much more RAM.
Given that smartphone prices generally are most often rising we’d expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will definitely cost at least that much.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 news and rumors
So far one in the few real things we’ve learned about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is that it’ll apparently use a 6.66-inch screen. And we’ve heard that doesn’t once, but twice already!
That’s up from 6.4 inches about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and even though we’d take this using a pinch of salt it’s believable, considering the fact that phone screens keep getting bigger, and given how the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is 6.4 inches and we’d expect another Note to be larger than anything in the S range.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could also possess a quad-lens camera as outlined by one report. The specs of the lenses aren’t known, but it is feasible that they will function as the just like those about the Galaxy S10 5G, a phone which has a 12MP telephoto lens, a 12MP variable aperture one, a 16MP ultra-wide lens, and a 3D depth-sensor.
The same report says that this Note 10 contains the model number SM-N975F. However Note handsets usually possess a ‘0’ because last number, so there’s speculation that this could denote a 5G variant.
In more vague news, the Galaxy Note 10 is apparently codenamed ‘Da Vinci’.
Given that Leonardo da Vinci was a famous painter that may hint at upgrades on the S Pen, though exactly what those upgrades would be is unclear. Leonardo da Vinci seemed to be very talented in several different ways though, which means this could equally be a suggestion the Note 10 will likely be a very versatile phone.
Beyond that we are able to take some educated guesses about what the Note 10 might offer. For one thing, based on past form it will probably use the same chipset because the Samsung Galaxy S10.
That means sometimes a Snapdragon 855 or even an Exynos 9820, determined by where you stand within the world. They’re both top-end though.
The Galaxy S10 even offers an in-screen fingerprint scanner and a camera cut-out inside screen, as opposed to a notch or big bezels, so those tend features with the Note 10.
The Note 10 is also almost definitely going to have a very curved Super AMOLED screen. You can probably expect water proof too, given that all recent Samsung flagships have that.
And naturally, the S Pen will make a return, though quite possibly by incorporating latest features and refinements.
What we want to see
While there’s no Samsung Galaxy Note 10 news just yet, we use a good idea of what we should want from it. Youll find our seven main suggestions below.
1. A customizable Bixby button
As much as Samsung might prefer us to work with Bixby for Google Assistant the truth is that for that most part its hardly as good, and Google has a lot of a head start that people doubt it ever will likely be.
That wouldn’t be an issue except that Samsung insists on locating a physical Bixby button on its Note phones, so for your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 we either want this being removed or to be customizable, to help you set it to file for something besides Bixby.
The nice thing about it is this should happen, as it would be a characteristic that since writing this wish Samsung has begun bringing to its phones – maybe the South Korean company really is paying attention to us.
2. HDR video recording
Many high-end handsets can now record HDR video, though the Galaxy Note 9 can’t. It’s unfortunate, because it’s a noticeably weak part of a camera that’s otherwise great.
So we desire to see HDR recording available from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. And not just any HDR, but 4K HDR (which can be provided by some rivals), therefore it can shoot videos that seem to be as good as its photos surely will.
3. An in-screen fingerprint scanner
The Note 9 features a fingerprint scanner about the back, that enables for slim bezels about the front (though still more of a bottom bezel than we’d have hoped to view) but arguably can make it slightly trickier to reach than the usual front-facing scanner.
We also noted in our review that it’s too small and too close towards the camera, so that it is an easy task to accidentally hit that instead and smudge the lens.
So for your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 we would like the scanner about the front, but rather than being within the screen we’d like it included in the screen, much like the Galaxy S10 and a few other phones are actually doing.
4. A completely new look
The Note 9 is really a attractive phone, but it’s also similar in design on the last few and also the bezels are starting to feel somewhat much compared to the likes in the iPhone X and Huawei P20 Pro.
So we’d like to see a design overhaul for your Samsung Galaxy Note 10. It can maintain your water proof and also the curvy screen, but hopefully the rest of the design will change to something fresher plus much more modern.
5. A lower price
There’s no getting around the fact that this Note 9 is often a very, very costly phone and we’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be a minimum of as pricey.
But we’re hoping it won’t be. If Samsung can shave several hundred dollars/pounds off the price it might have far wider appeal.
6. Improved facial recognition
The Galaxy Note 9 has both an iris scanner and facial recognition, but – once we note inside our review – even combined these sensors are not any match for Apple’s Face ID, so we’d like to view real improvements here to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
That will most likely mean packing in additional and better cameras and sensors about the front so that it can build up an exact 3D picture in our face.
That could possibly be expensive making taking out the bezel trickier, but whether it leads to a fast, secure scanner that work well in virtually all lighting that may be worth every penny.
7. An even longer-lasting battery
For the Galaxy Note 9 Samsung upped the range’s battery size to 4,000mAh, delivering over a day of life within the process.
That’s good work, but we need to see further improvements for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, especially considering the fact that batteries break with time, so if you plan to hold on to the phone for two years or even more you might notice significantly reduced life by the end.
On that note, if Samsung will make battery degrade slower that will be appreciated too.
