It is no longer new for smartphone manufacturers to “accidentally” leak their upcoming phones, and Samsung appears to be the latest to do this with the upcoming Galaxy Note 10.
Before now, we already saw case leaks of the device, suggesting the form factor. There have also been rumours of what the Galaxy Note 10 battery will be like. In addition, the Galaxy Note 10 lineup is said to be coming with 50W super-fast charging.
The latest leak came up during an official presentation at Samsung’s headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. Samsung revealed an image of the device alongside the name “Galaxy Note 10”.
This image was not spotted alone; it appeared on a slide with dozens of other Samsung Galaxy devices.
Even after the image was spotted, the Samsung representative did not actually confirm that the image was of the final Galaxy Note 10 that will eventually be launched. The company claimed that it was a render of a “reference device”. In fact, photos of the presentation were forbidden.
Asides from the image that was spotted, the CEO of Samsung Electronics, DJ Koh, also made reference to the device by name when he said “and for our Note 10, it will be another phase for Bixby.” This probably means that the name of the final device is confirmed already.
According to rumours, the Galaxy Note 10 is expected to launch at an event in New York on 7th August.
If the rumours are anything to go by, the Note 10 will come in two different sizes, and at least one of them will support 5G. We also expect the rear camera arrangement to likely be different from that of the Galaxy Note 9 in the sense that it may sport three lenses aligned vertically and not horizontally. The front camera will likely be centrally placed rather than on the top right-hand corner of the screen.
It is only a matter of time before all the rumours and leaks are confirmed, and all we can do is wait.
