Samsung Galaxy Note 10 release date, price, news and leaks

Sharing is caring!

So there’s now no doubt that we will see the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 soon. In fact, the Note 10 launch date has been confirmed as August 7, with an event happening in Brooklyn, New York.

It’s an event we’re cautiously optimistic about, as while the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is full of worthwhile features, in a lot of ways it felt like a small upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 released the previous year.

So while we’re looking forward to the next version of Samsung’s notable phone, we’re hoping for more from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. We want robust, recognizable changes and upgrades that justify its inevitably enormous price tag.

We’ve listed some of our specific hopes below, but before that you’ll find all the rumors and educated guesses at the specs and features of the Galaxy Note 10.

Could the upcoming smartphone top our list of the best Android phones? We’ll have to wait to find out.

Once the Galaxy Note 10 is announced it will likely be at least a couple of weeks before you can buy it, so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t hit stores until late August 2019.

We’ve heard a leak regarding the price of the Note 10, which points the price for a 256GB model as €999 (around $1,125, £900, AU$1,600). That’s quite the step up over the Note 9 price, but it’s not that much expensive than a Samsung Galaxy S10.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 design and display rumors
We’ve finally got a leak of what could be the Note 10 in a trio of photos: a single central punch-hole on the front display housing a selfie camera, no visible speaker (indicating a possible sound-conducting screen), and a vertically-aligned triple rear camera setup.

You can see the images in the video below:

Rather low-quality images of the Note 10 also came from the FCC in the US, which accidentally released images of the phone, along with measurements.

Our previous close look at the possible design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 came via another video (below).

Here you can see a curved screen, a single-lens punch-hole camera on the front, a triple-lens camera on the back, a metal frame, and no Bixby button or headphone jack.

A case leak also suggests there’s no headphone jack – though some other leaks below disagree.

The phone also apparently has up to 12GB of RAM and either a Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 chipset, depending on region.

The source adds that the screen is apparently 6.3 inches, likely with a 1440 x 3040 resolution, and that the dimensions may be 162.6 x 77.4 x 7.9mm – though we’d take all that with a pinch of salt, as it would mean a smaller screen yet a larger body than the Note 9. Plus, one other rumor we’ve heard is that the Note 10 will apparently have a 6.66-inch screen. And we’ve heard that not once, but twice already!

That’s up from 6.4 inches on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and while we’d take this with a pinch of salt it’s believable, given that phone screens keep getting bigger, and given that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is 6.4 inches and we’d expect the next Note to be bigger than anything in the S range.

However it’s possible there will be two different Samsung Galaxy Note 10 models, as we’ve heard rumors that as well as a 6.75-inch phone Samsung will release a smaller Note 10 only in Europe.

The larger of the two (or more) models might be called the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro, as that’s a name that we’ve heard rumored now.

The screen of this Pro is apparently 6.75 inches, 1440 x 3040 and said to support HDR10+, while the rest of the specs apparently include up to 12GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 chipset, depending on region.

It’s worth noting that leaked case renders for both models match the designs above, so they could well be accurate.

But there are other sources that say the Note 10 will have a 6.4-inch screen while the Note 10 Pro will have a 6.8-inch one – which is slightly larger than we’d heard before. Finally, they add that the Note 10 will start in a 128GB size, while the Note 10 Pro will start at 256GB, rising to 1TB.

Another source meanwhile says that while the Note 10 Pro will have a microSD card slot, the standard Note 10 won’t.

The Note 10 is also almost certainly going to have a curved Super AMOLED screen, and it will probably be a very good one, with one source claiming there will be no better screen in the second half of 2019.

You can probably expect water resistance too, given that all recent Samsung flagships have that.

A few different rumors have given us a clearer idea of the color choices Samsung might offer for the Note 10. It seems the company will be offering a red version as well as a gradient finish, which we expect to be the silver version of the phone.

Other color rumors include Black, White, Silver and Pink, which suggests we won’t get a Lavender Purple version like we did on the Galaxy Note 9.

There may be some hope for those who want to see the headphone jack retained on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, as a different case leak appears to have a small indentation for a headphone jack. Another source has also said it has one, but for now we’re not certain whether it does or not.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 camera rumors
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro could have a quad-lens camera according to one report.

That’s a claim we’ve now heard multiple times. In fact, we’ve even seen leaked renders showing four lenses, along with a design that’s otherwise similar to leaks of the standard Note 10.

You can see cases with camera cut-outs for both models below. Note that one has more cut-outs than the other.
