Samsung’s flagships encompass their S-series and Note devices. Since the company has already released its Galaxy S10 devices this year, now it’s time for the Note series to make its way to the smartphone world. And Samsung recently announced the date, time, and venue on which it will launch its Galaxy Note 10 devices.
The South Korean company made it clear that the Note 10 devices will launch on August 7 this year. And this second Unpacked event of the year will be happening in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center. It’s the same venue, which Samsung chose to unveil the last year’s Galaxy Note 9. The launch event is said to take place at 4 PM EDT on New York (1 pm PDT, 9 pm BST, 6 am AEST in Australia).
The announcement for the launch event basically came through an image. The image shows a Stylus (or S-pen) with a circular camera right beneath it. You could say that this bears resemblance to an exclamation mark. So, is Samsung inferring that the device will bring jaw-dropping surprises? We don’t know that yet, but a new Note 10 device should be exciting enough. And since it’s Samsung, who knows?
What to expect on Samsung Galaxy Note 10 unpacked event?
There’s a trend of launching multiple flagship devices in a single unveiling event. OnePlus bringing 7 and 7 Pro and Samsung’s S10, S10 Plus, S10e, and S10 5G in the single event is an example. And since Samsung has already tried this maverick approach, we can be sure that the company will do the same. After all, there are multiple variants of the Note 10 devices too, at least, according to rumors. According to speculations, there will be two Note 10 devices. One the normal size variant, which is said to come with a 6.25-inch display and another with an extra-large 6.75-inch screen. The bigger one is said to bear Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ moniker. Also, these speculations suggest both of these devices will come in normal and 5G variants. And that makes a total of four Note 10 devices.
Breaking down the launch event teaser, we can expect something significant on the Stylus and the front camera. And there are two things we can presume: one, that the front camera is on the stylus, which has been in the talks for some time now. And another would be a punched-hole cutout for the selfie snapper, which, this time, could be aligned in the center. Either of these is possible but Samsung could probably go the second route.
Since there is just a single camera shown in the image, Samsung will probably ditch the secondary shooter on the front, which was present on the Galaxy S10 Plus.
Apart from that, there are also rumors circling that Samsung will ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack on these models. Since Samsung has done that on its midrange devices like the Galaxy A80 and M40, that may not come much of a surprise.
Furthermore, Samsung can also use the stage to announce its indefinitely delayed Galaxy Fold device. Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh said that they had pushed the product to the market before it was ready. So they are probably making the amendments to relaunch the device in full circle in this Unpacked event.
