Now that the S10 has been released and has become old news, rumors about the release and design of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 have started making rounds on the interwebs.
A report from ET news, a South Korean Publication, suggests that the phone will feature a buttonless design and will have a huge 6.75-inch screen. Note phones usually have a large display, but this goes above that and is close to the tablet category.
Samsung has been reportedly considering a partnership with NDT, a Chinese company that specializes in force touch solutions. Apart from having 4K resolution, 5G/4G variants, it will also have a quad-camera which is a first for Samsung.
According to the report, the phablet is supposed to feature a completely buttonless system which means, no power button, no volume button, and no Bixby assistant button. Instead, it will feature a gesture-based navigation system combined with capacitive buttons.
The report also hinted that the Infinity-O hole display will soon be history and will be replaced by a below screen camera in the near future. The button-less design is also expected to be incorporated in the mid-range phones specifically Samsung’s A-series that has seen multiple releases this year.
This is Samsung’s attempt to improve its smartphone design, however it might backfire. We have seen phones like Meizu Zero and Vivo Apex 2019 to try out the buttonless design and they did not receive an enthusiastic response that was expected.
Samsung does have a much bigger reach and audience, so it could receive a positive response, but only time will tell.
Apart from this, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is rumored to feature 12 GB RAM with 1 TB built-in memory, a Snapdragon 855 chipset, and 5G/4G variants. Some markets may receive the Note 10 with the Exynos 5100 5G modem.
