If you’re unfamiliar, Samsung’s Galaxy Note line differs from the company’s most important phone series – the Galaxy S line – in a couple of important ways. Note devices typically have a larger display, a larger battery, an integrated S Pen pen, and an improved camera configuration compared to their S brand counterparts of the same year.
With the Galaxy S10 family putting the kibosh in the frames and instigating hole cameras, both strokes should also appear on the Galaxy Note 10. Samsung’s take-out is marked as ‘Infinity O Display’ and while the front cameras of the S10 devices are in the upper right corner of the screen of each phone, so it is expected that the positioning will be different in the new Note.
According to the frequent source of leakage IceUniverse and corroborated by other well-known tipster, OnLeaks (both via Twitter), the Galaxy Note 10 will have a front hole camera, but unlike the S10 series, it will be positioned centrally at the top edge of your display.
To compose this information, the PhoneArena began releasing conceptual renderings of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, complete with centralized front-facer.
Probability: Both IceUniverse and OnLeaks are renowned the world of smartphone rumors, on more than one occasion, the specifications or images they release turns out to be totally accurate. As such, we would give some credence to the westward move of the front camera to the next Note.
While there is no inherent problem with the hole’s offset position in the Galaxy S10 series along with Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro, this positioning shifts the notification icons and user interface elements somewhat awkwardly, while positioning is less likely to interfere with most conventional application designs and interfaces – which is a smart decision.
The Galaxy S10 series features an impressively versatile camera configuration from the Korean company; consisting of a 12 megapixel optically stabilized (OIS) main sensor with a variable f / 1.5 to f / 2.4 aperture, an ultra wide 16 megapixel sensor and a third OIS sensor with a 12 megapixel telephoto lens. Expectations point to a similar setup for Note 10, albeit with a fundamental difference.
In place of the standard 12 megapixel telephoto sensor, which currently grants the S10, S10 Plus and S10 5G zooms up to 2x, Samsung has created its own periscopic camera module to ensure that any phone that implements it has significantly higher optical zoom.
This would give Note 10 far more competitive zoom capabilities compared to the current leaders in this area: Huawei P30 Pro it’s the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, both also using a transverse periscope lens design itself.
The source: It was the mobile site GSMArena, which published a report on the existence of Samsung’s new 5x lossless zoom sensor, which based on its report uses atypical custom-cut lenses to allow for higher levels of magnification without loss of image quality or increased distortion.
Probability: The component in question exists and the results it can produce are totally tangible; its inclusion in the Galaxy Note 10 camera configuration is lower. It would be a suitable upgrade to the S10 camera system and would help Samsung’s camera capabilities remain competitive against increased competition from its biggest Chinese rivals even if Huawei has to give up the race the moment Note 10 is released.
Faster Wireless Charge
Samsung has not done much to improve its 15W Adaptive Fast Charge technology since its introduction, with the needle moving only slightly since the arrival of the S10 line. Three of the S10 family use the same 15W charge, while the future Galaxy S10 5G has a fast charge of 25W, adhering to the standard USB Power Delivery 3.0.
Note 10 (or at least one variant) will potentially offer a fast 50W load, combining with Oppo’s SuperVOOC technology and outperforming OnePlus’s 30W load, as well as Huawei 40W SuperCharge technologies.
The source: This impressive statistic comes from a “trusted source” closely linked to the Samsung supply chain, which passed the information to the Forbes, along with other details on the composition of Note 10, including the inclusion of a larger battery of 4500mAh.
The SuperVOOC 50W, as it appears in the Automobili Lamborghini Edition of Oppo Find X, can fully charge a 3400mAh battery in just 35 minutes. If these new Note 10 numbers sounded true, the same charge rate could fill the Note 10 battery in less than 50 minutes.
Probability: The “trusted source” relied on technology journalist Gordon Kelly, who wrote the play for Forbes. If Kelly is willing to put his reputation at risk before Note 10 is formally revealed, we would be willing to accept that his source really knows what he is talking about.
What’s more, as has already been said, Samsung is delayed in the area of fast loading technology, so speeding things up with Note 10 would be timely.
