After months of anticipating Android fans around the world, Samsung has finally launched its Galaxy S10 series smartphones earlier this month. The Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 + offer the bold new design that people have been waiting for, but the S10 series is more than a pretty face. The phones also feature powerful specifications and all kinds of exciting new features, such as the on-screen digital fingerprint sensors on the S10 and S10 + models. The Galaxy S10 range is certainly excellent, but now that it is here, many people are waiting impatiently for the future.
Samsung has already unveiled two other flagship phones that have not been released yet. The first is the Galaxy S10 5G, an optimized version of the S10 + with a larger screen, more cameras and 5G connectivity. Then, Samsung will launch its foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, by the end of April. These two phones will be very expensive, so many Samsung fans are waiting for the other flagship launch that Samsung plans to launch later in the year: the Galaxy Note 10.
Until now, we have not seen a lot of leaks covering the next Galaxy Note 10. We nevertheless have a good idea of what we can expect from the models on which Samsung has been glued very closely over the years. Each year, Galaxy S phones launched by Samsung give us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Galaxy Note phone that will be launched later in the year. The design may be a bit more square, but the Galaxy Note 10 will probably be a Galaxy S10 + with a S Pen stylus and some exciting new features.
With that in mind, we can probably expect a Galaxy Note 10 with a slightly larger Dynamic AMOLED display than the Galaxy S10 +, which measures 6.4 inches diagonally. It will probably have the Galaxy S10 +'s triple-lens camera on the back, or maybe the Galaxy S10 5G's four-lens camera. At the front, we are probably watching a perforated screen with a dual lens selfie camera in the corner.
Selfie pop-up cameras are a growing trend in China at the moment, and the OnePlus 7 should finally bring this trend to the US later this year. With this in mind, a graphic designer by the name of Muhsin M. Belaal Auckburaully has achieved a great opportunity with the Galaxy Note series and stylus S Pen, which slip into a cavity at the bottom of the phone when it is tidy: why not not combine the S Pen with a selfie camera pop-up? By removing the camera from the display like on Samsung Galaxy S10 series phones, you'll get a true 100% screen.
The resulting design is purely conceptual. It certainly will not happen, at least not this year. However, starting in 2018, the Galaxy Note 9's S Pen features a built-in Bluetooth radio and a battery that charges automatically when the S Pen is stowed. No technical reason prevents this brilliant concept from becoming a reality.
You can discover some other renderings of this very cool concept of note 10 below, followed by a video. The rest can be seen on Auckburaully's Behance page.
