Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series will be launched on August 7 at the Unpacked 2019 event. The tech titan has sent out invites for the New York-based event. We could expect multiple variants this time around.

It’s not even a month away and the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ designs are confirmed. Besides that, we have a hint of almost every other details about the upcoming Note series, thanks to a barrage of leaks and rumors. So, we thought, why not compare it with the predecessor – Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

A recent few leaks of Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ shows its Infinity-O display as well as the triple camera panel at the back. This time around, the punch-hole migrates to the center and could be very well the eye-catching element of the phone. The renders showcase a few new sublime wallpapers.

The latest FCC listing corroborates these design leaks. It tells us that the Galaxy Note 10+ will come with a 6.7-inch display and 162.5×77.6mm dimensions. It further reveals the absence of 3.5mm headphone jack as well as the Bixby button. As per Roland Quandt, a reputed leakster,  the new Galaxy Notes will have Type-C earphones instead.

Sources tell us the presence of a Time of Flight sensor in the camera territory. So besides the Primary sensor, we could expect a Telephoto sensor, an Ultra-wide angle sensor and finally a Time of flight (TOF) sensor too. This one is tipped to cost around 1149 euros.

Note 10, on the other hand, is expected to come with a 6.28-inch display. A recent leak (below) exhibits the phone’s vertical quad camera arrangement at the back. We also get a glimpse of the S-pen, tucked at the bottom. Its base variant with 256GB is alleged to cost around 999 euros.

Revisiting the Galaxy Note series

Looking at the above image, you would realize, how far the Note series has journeyed over the years. Long gone are the thick bezels engulfing the display and the different hardware keys on the chassis.

Samsung has shaved off the bezels across the border, by the dint of this front camera placement. Thus the phone not only looks visually splendid but also gets slightly smaller in size. Looking at the comparative image below, even the Galaxy Note 10 seems more ergonomic than the Galaxy Note 9 (review) as well as Galaxy Note 8 (review).

The phone has a noticeable chin and arched corners resembling the bottom bezels of the Galaxy S10 Plus. The new design choices by Samsung gives it a svelte and chiseled physique.

If you’d recall, Note 9’s display was 6.4-inches diagonally with a resolution of 1440×2960 pixels. It had HDR10 support. Samsung is the undisputed king of smartphone displays and this year shouldn’t be any different.
