Samsung has been on a steady roll of unveiling the A-series and M-series flagships, with Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ launched in India only recently and now it’s time for Galaxy Note 10 to take center stage. It is slated to hit the Indian market in August and word goes that there will be a Pro variant this time too. The news is affirmed and through reliable tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer aka OnLeaks, a high-resolution 5K renders and a 360-degree sneak-peak video of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro, and some renders showing the Note 10 and Note 10 Pro side by side are brought up.
Here's a Sneak-peek into Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro renders and specifications. The Samsung Galaxy Note is modeled on the Galaxy S-series flagships, and the most anticipated new Note 10 Pro is designed along similar lines with similar premium glass sandwich design, and some modifications in camera placements.
Coming to the look and design, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro echoes the sleek, stunning design and signature boxy look of the earlier Note flagships, sporting an edge-to-edge display with curved edges and negligible bezels on the top and bottom. The center-positioned punch-hole selfie camera is the modification made from the S10 lineup’s top-right corner placement and the thing to look out for! Furthermore, the flagship has only one selfie shooter as against the dual selfie cameras of the Galaxy S10 model.
As per OnLeaks, the display is touted to be 6.75-inches, with the overall dimensions being 162.3 x 77.4 x 7.9mm, with the thickness extending to 8.5mm over the rear camera bump.
As for the camera bump, the rear panel of the smartphone will hold a quad-camera module just like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G which includes 3 cameras along with a fourth ToF (3D depth) camera. Following up from the S10 5G’s setup, a 12MP telephoto, 12MP wide-angle and 16MP ultra wide-angle lens can be expected in the camera which is every shutterbug’s reason to rejoice. The arrangement of the cameras are like that of the Galaxy A9 (2018) model, aligned vertically (vs horizontally on the S10 series). Without a physical fingerprint scanner, it can be stated concretely that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro will have an in-display, inbuilt fingerprint sensor, imported from the ultrasonic one of the Galaxy S10 series.
Not only has this, as per OnLeaks, but the phone also had a very thin metal frame, which becomes thicker near the buttons. The power and volume buttons are put on the left edge and the bottom of the phone sports features such as the S-Pen slot, microphone, loudspeaker grill and Type-C port. The SIM card tray is visible just over the camera module on the top edge which is quite an unusual arrangement. Moreover, there’s a secondary microphone with IR blaster put alongside it. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro seems to not have the infamous Bixby button and the 3.5mm audio jack, which is sure to spark some curiosity.
Finally, zeroing on the remaining specifications, the 6.75-inch display is expected to be a Dynamic AMOLED panel, with a resolution of 1,440 x 3,040 pixels and HDR 10+ support, a Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 SoC at its core, depending on the region, and a chipset of up to 12GB RAM. As per previous reports, it is to have UFS 3.0 storage, a 4,500mAh battery, and 45W fast charging. Powered with these impressive attributes, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro seems promising enough to be a star flagship for Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro vs Galaxy Note 10 renders
OnLeaks has also shared 2 renders of the Note 10 vs Note 10 Pro. The comparison makes the size difference quite clear, with the Note 10 model featuring a smaller 6.3-inch display. The smaller Note has only 3 cameras at the back and is without the 3D depth camera seen on the Pro variant. The Note 10 also features a slightly thicker bezel at the top than the Note 10 Pro. Barring these, the phones look similar. Stay tuned for more updates.
