Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and S10 To Be Notch-Free [REPORT]

A notch-free screen could be featured in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 according to rumors.

Social marketing done by Samsung on Twitter to promote their upcoming smartphones suggests a notch-free display could be an addition. Samsung took a dig at Google for their notch display in a tweet. This pretty much surmises that Samsung plans on doing away with the notches completely.

The other features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and S10 rumored are:

Samsung Galaxy S10:

Design and display

The leaks all indicate to a slimmer bezel-free design, three different screen sizes and a 19:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 3040 resolution. The new aspect ratio will make it stand taller than the 18:5:9 Galaxy S9 phone.

According to DJ Koh, Samsung’s mobile business chief, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will have some significant design changes and will be sporting an array of amazing colors.

The image leaked online shows a curved screen handset and almost bezel-free on any edge, thus the front-facing camera may be built into the screen itself. In addition, it looks like the Bixby button is making another return with the power and volume buttons

Of the three rumored screens, one apparently codenamed ‘Beyond 0’, is said to have a 5.8-inch screen which might also be flat. Then there’s another one, codenamed as ‘Beyond 1’, which apparently has a 5.8-inch curved screen, and a ‘Beyond 2’, which will have a 6.2-inch curved screen.

Biometric security

We have further evidence to expect an in-screen fingerprint scanner and an improved 3D face scanner. If that turns out to be true, the Galaxy S10 would be following in the steps of the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS and the Vivo Nex.

Some reports claim it will use a third generation Qualcomm ultrasonic scanner, and that Samsung has felt pressured to do so following the success of both Vivo and Huawei having phones with in-screen scanners.

According to speculation by OLED Info, Samsung might be going even further and placing speakers in the screen as well as the earpiece.

Camera

The camera specs being rumored so far include the addition of a triple-lens rear camera on the top-end model, a dual-lens front-facing camera along with 12MP, 13MP, and 16MP lenses. The triple lens would make sense if Samsung wants to give competition to Huawei P20’s rumored triple lens phone.

Power

The new phone will most likely be using Snapdragon 855. A 7nm chipset which is smaller, powerful and more efficient than the Snapdragon 845

The 855 will also be capable of supporting download speeds of up to 2Gbps, an upgrade from 1.2Gbps on the Galaxy S9.

As for the RAM, Samsung has developed an 8GB RAM chip built on a 10nm process.

Release date and price

The new Samsung model will likely be released in early 2019. When it does go on sale it’s sure to be expensive. Based off on the Galaxy S9 prices, we can almost certainly expect it to cost north of $900.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10:

Display

Speculations are suggesting we could be seeing a 6.5in screen on the new handset. A 0.1in bigger upgrade than the Note 9. With bezels getting smaller and being almost shunned out of existence. We might be getting a bezel-free update. Not to mention an in-screen finger print scanner could make a debut.

Power

Internal upgrades are also being expected with the successor to the Exynos 9810 chip definite, alongside a potential 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Samsung has codenamed the upcoming phone Da Vinci, indicating new upgrades to the S-Pen. The triple-rear camera feature, however, is likely to feature on other models before the Note 10, according to CEO DJ Koh.

Price

As smartphone prices have risen quite consistently over the past few years we would surely expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 to cost north of $1000.
