Fresh Galaxy Note 10 case renders give a better view on the cutouts

A couple of fresh images showcasing a clear protective case for the alleged Galaxy Note 10 have emerged. They feature the rendered device at an angle and thus they give a better idea of what the purpose of all the cutouts might be.

According to these images, the bottom edge of the device will accommodate the S Pen slot, a loudspeaker, along with a USB Type-C port and microphone. Two additional cutouts are to be found on the top edge of the device – one of them should be for a microphone, but it’s unclear what the other one is for. At the back, the upper-left corner has a vertically-aligned cutout which is large enough for three cameras, as well as a small circular cutout for the LED flash.

This configuration suggests that the case renders at hand depict the standard Galaxy Note 10 because the Pro variant is rumored to feature two additional ToF sensors next to the LED flash. These types of sensors are capable of depth mapping in 3D space and can unlock more Augmented Reality possibilities.

The cutouts seem to match an earlier CAD render leak, and once again, they indicate that the next-gen phablet will lack a 3.5mm headphone jack. This standard feature won’t become a Pro exclusive, either; instead, it will allegedly be missing from the Note 10 lineup altogether, at least according to other previous leaks.

Samsung is expected to introduce the Galaxy Note 10 in early August at a launch event reportedly set to take place in New York City.

Am I looking at it wrong, or is the S-pen on the left side now?

Uhm, you must have forgotten that that second “cutout” at the top is the SIM ejector hole.

The SIM ejector pin doesn’t get a cutout because there’s no use of having one when it won’t work with the case on, which is why these cases are surprising.

Then where else is the SIM slot placed?

Doesn’t matter in this context. You can’t open the SIM tray when you have a cover on the phone. You have to take the cover off and then insert a pin in the ejector hole.

Okay, okay. I don’t get the thumbs down. I know you’re not supposed to provide a cutout for the SIM slot. What I’m looking directly at is the holes on the handset itself, and that second pinhole could very well be for the SIM slot, and the case supposedly shouldn’t have a cutout for it, which is what you’re saying. I asked where else the SIM slot will be placed since there is no other hole shown in the render, which is not considered in the article. Bottomline, the case could have a wrong design, and that second pinhole (provided… Read more »

Whats the point of having a sim hole cut out, if the tray can’t physically eject due to the case?

I think you’re missing my point. What I’m arguing is the case render (which can be created by anyone since there’s no brand whatsoever) could have a wrong cutout provision for the SIM slot, and that pinhole on the phone ITSELF is actually the SIM ejector pinhole.

The case manufacturer, will do the silicone cases after, it sees the phone model.

Dude’ the slot for the sim, could be on any side of the frame, it depends where the samsung designer want’s to set it, you don’t need a cutout for the sim ejection tray,. in case for the silicone cover.None of the silicone cases have that.
