Less than 24 hours after Galaxy Note 10+ official press images were posted, live photos of the flagship product that corroborate everything previously seen have now been released by the FCC (via XDA developers).
Noticeably larger screen but hardly any size difference
Looking at Samsung's next-generation flagship product, today's photos do not show anything new. This is partly because the displayed unit has its screen off, which makes some design elements difficult to see, but mostly because the previous leaks basically revealed all there is to know about the design of the Galaxy Note 10.
According to previous reports, Samsung will equip the largest Galaxy Note 10+ with a 6.75-inch Super AMOLED Infinity display. Today's FCC record does not confirm the resolution of this panel, but corroborates the presence of extremely thin glasses. Curiously, the dimensions of the screen do not match.
As shown in one of the photos, the FCC measurements go to a large screen with a diagonal of 170.1 mm. This equates to 6.7 inches and basically means that the Galaxy Note 10+ screen is 0.05 inches smaller than the original forecast. Of course, it is possible that the FCC measurements are shifted by about 1 mm, but given the rigor of the regulator, this seems extremely unlikely. As such, the Galaxy Note 10+ will have the same screen as the Galaxy S10 5G.
Many cameras at the back
If we look at other images of the flagship product, the most noticeable design element may be the redesigned camera configuration at the back. For some generations, Samsung has chosen a horizontal presentation for its flagship product Galaxy Note, but this year, the company replaces it with a new vertical configuration located in the upper left corner.
As previously stated, the main camera module will contain three sensors in total. A 12-megapixel main snapper would be paired with a new 3-stage variable aperture lens, a 16-megapixel super wide-angle camera, and another 12-megapixel sensor coupled with a telephoto zoom lens that supports 2x optical zoom.
A separate column of components is located to the right side of them. Here, Samsung has apparently put up an LED flash and an additional flight time sensor that should enhance portrait photography and also help with RA content.
The headphone jack is definitely not there
Like other flagship Samsung products, the Galaxy Note 10+ has an aluminum frame. The left side of it houses the company's usual volume rocker and a new power key. Previous flagship models featured a Bixby button in this position, but Samsung has now completely abandoned this unpopular item.
Speaking of ditching, another feature removed on the Galaxy Note 10+ is the 3.5mm headphone jack, more popular again. Over the years, Samsung has remained faithful to the port, despite the avoidance of other leaders in the sector, but it now seems that the South Korean giant can no longer justify its presence.
The external configuration of the Galaxy Note 10+ is complemented by a USB-C port on the bottom and a speaker on the side. The Samsung brand, S Pen, is also present, although upgrades planned for this year are not yet clear.
