Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Eyes an August Launch
According to media reports doing the round, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is all set to make its debut this year in August. Reportedly, the Galaxy Unpacked event, which would be the place for the next-generation Galaxy Note model, is scheduled at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.
The South Korean company unveiled its Galaxy Note 9 last year at the same venue, and same month, too. Samsung hasn’t yet revealed any details around the Galaxy Note 10, however, rumour mills suggest that it may come with an Infinity-O Display panel.
This year, the company is also rumoured to bring a ‘Pro’ variant to the Galaxy Note family that could feature a massive display panel. If we look at more rumours, Samsung will also possibly unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro as two of its new phablets. The Pro variant might even have some additional features, including pressure-sensitive edges and a 4,500mAh battery.
According to media portal CNET, which cited people familiar with the development, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 launch is taking place on August 7. While the Note series doesn’t see as much sales as Samsung’s Galaxy S devices, but it does have its own fan following.
The Note was first introduced in 2011 and kicked off a trend of phones sporting bigger displays. The size of the first Note’s screen was 5.3 inches, which would be considered small today, but wasn’t so back then. Today, the latest Note 9 features a 6.4-inch display.
Samsung also recently announced the Galaxy Fold, a phone that expands into a tablet. The device priced at $1,980 created major ripples in the market by becoming the first major smartphone to incorporate a foldable display. However, while the company did plan to launch the phone April 26, but it delayed the Fold when the screens on some reviewers’ test phones broke. The company is yet to announce a new launch date.
