Galaxy Note 10+, not Pro, will be the larger model, images leaked

We exclusively confirmed three months ago that Samsung will be launching two models of the Galaxy Note 10. It was later rumored that the larger model will be called the Galaxy Note 10 Pro. The very first live images of the larger model have now leaked online. They show that Samsung will stick with its conventional naming scheme and call it Galaxy Note 10+ instead.

The images also confirm some design changes that we had only seen in the leaked renders so far. The display hole is in the center, not the right corner like it is on the Galaxy S10. While the Galaxy S10+ features a dual front camera, it appears that the Galaxy Note 10+ will only get one.

Leaked images show the Galaxy Note 10+ in the flesh

The first Galaxy Note 10+ live images have been leaked through a video from YouTuber TechTalkTV, who apparently received them from a subscriber on Instagram. The device we see here is not that different in terms of design compared to the renders that have surfaced online so far.

Earlier reports have suggested that the larger Galaxy Note 10 model will have a 6.75-inch display. These images show that Samsung has trimmed the bezels as expect. Also, notice the absence of an earpiece which means that recent reports about the Galaxy Note 10 having Sound on Display technology are likely accurate.

We’ve already opined that it’s fine if the larger Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t have a dual front camera. The pill-shaped cutout on the Galaxy S10+ doesn’t look that good and the addition of a second camera up front doesn’t make much of a difference for Live Focus (bokeh) selfies. The rather blurry image of the back shows that the device has an iPhone-like vertical camera system. The LED flash and ToF sensor are placed alongside it.

So it’s all as per expectations. The biggest takeaway here is the boot screen which shows that this device will be called the Galaxy Note 10+. It makes sense for Samsung to keep the branding within the confines of what its customers are already familiar with. Do you like what you see or do you wish that some of these design changes hadn’t been made? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has to stick with only one Note variant as they always did before, there’s nothing like Note 10+ or pro, they should stick with their headphone Jack and ignore the punch hole camera, they should find a way to create a new design of front camera without notch and punch hole, they should also improve their Ram Management, Camera and hdr quality for better picture like the pixels

Leaks should always have the lowest resolution. It wont be called a leak if it is at high res. They want us to believe that 0.5mp cameras still exist today. (same goes to UFO videos) ROFLMAO

Why the fuzzy photo of the back?

Maybe they managed to hide the blur effect camera behind the screen? Doubtful but you never know. How come there are two perfect front photos but the back looks like it was taken with a 0.5mp camera? This always makes me a bit suspicious, like UFO photos, everyone has great cameras but the UFO pics look sh## because they’re fake. Lol. Anyway, for me the S9 plus and Note9 are the perfect design, no screen hole, bezels very small but allowing you to watch a video on an uninterrupted screen without your hands covering it at the edges, a headphone… Read more »

Fakest leak ever. Does not confirm what we really want to know i.e headphone jack, microSD, IR blaster.

people never satisfied..they still crying for old tech & design.. 😂

As far as IR blaster is concerned, I agree, everything in my home works through smart apps. But the headphone jack can only be considered old tech when Bluetooth sound is just as good. It’s not. It has lower audio quality, lower bitrate output, still suffers from lag and disconnection issues and is simply second best to wired headphones. Maybe soon Bluetooth will be as good but now it’s worse. Same thing with Micro SD cards. As a business user carrying very large technical data files, one file can be 4 or 5gb, removable storage is a huge convenience. If… Read more »

And even if BT headphones do some day make the grade, how about connecting to that old PA system in the meeting room or school? There are more use cases than just personal music consumption – that’s when you need proper phone, not just a media consumption toy.

Biransahin

Since when is the MicroSD card old technology? Samsung themselves just made a faster 512gb version and Sandisk is working on an even higher capacity one. Bluetooth quality is still crap compared to wired sound. I can agree with you on the IR blaster, even my QLED TV works with an app on my Note9 along with all other household equipment. TV hasn’t needed an IR blaster for 3 years now. Even my older TV before this one worked by app.

Sure, IR and a jack connector are “old tech”. The launch date of the tech is not the relevant factor. What matters is whether these technologies remain in installed use. Most PA systems, projectors, TVs, air cons etc installed and in use in hotels, meeting rooms, schools, clubs and so on use these technologies. So if you want to interface with them, you need those technologies. I just love it when all these bleeding edge kiddies with their bleeding edge gizmos discover that it takes an old fuddy-duddy with a proper ‘workhorse’ phone to be able to get the projector… Read more »

Note 9 design is perfect. For me I do not like the hole in the center of the screen. As a owner of every Note I wish Samsung would go back to a wider design and more of a flat display. And how will adding a screen protector affect the sound? Sammy cranks out so many devices there is not much difference any…do a few and do them well. But lets face it, we complain but Samsung knows we will buy even at their way over priced devices.

I agree. The Note9 is the closest to perfection Samsung have come. The Note10 might actually be a step backwards.

The perfect phone for it’s time was the note 4 … didn’t miss anything on that beast!! Just got outdated.
Still own the note 2,3,4 and now holding on the note 8 Olympic PyeongChang edition till the note 11 or maybe this time I will go for something else( i see you Xiaomi, Huawei)

Where is the heart rate sensor?

Apparently the case renders you reported on yesterday also don’t have a cutout for a heart rate sensor. So are they removing both the headphone jack and the heart rate sensor?

I don’t know which renders you watched, but I don’t see there jack or heart rate sensor.

People have just found ways to ridicule everything and i honestly believe solution to this all cribbing is GETTING YOUR OWN CUSTOMIZED phones from the company just like assembled PCs.
Order your stuff and get it done.
But till that time I believe its a great design, Maximum screen and that too with best of the best. Can’t wait to own it.

Sorry but it looks horrible. The entire point of not having a notch is to avoid cutting the space for the notifications in the status bar. If you put the hole right in the middle, you might as well just have put a notch there.

I would immediately turn on the virtual bezel on this thing… If I were into buying diner tables that lack basic features.

Note users will be way better off buying the Note 9 instead.

The notifications on Android are at the corners, so a hole in the middle will not interfere with them.

I am totally fine with the display of note 9…no need for the punch hole or notch ( give me a real stereo speakers). Put back the Bixby button and let us remap it as we like( i remaped it to change between silent-vibration). Put back the 3.5 mm Jack for the times when the bluetooth headphones dies. Infrared is good. Finalize the UI so at least when I switch to dark mode or change the theme… all the apps and system apps go dark, not like 20%. What is wrong with you Samsung…are we using alpha software? Then I… Read more »

Samsung’s official apps are going to dark mode, but third party apps are still in normal mode only even when dark mode is enabled

Samsung theme app, Samsung store, shealth, Samsung members, all apps from goodlocks doesn’t follow dark mode.
Don’t let me start with the apps that doesn’t follow the theme….

I hadn’t seen an S10+ in the flesh until recently, and I have to say, it’s screen is so big, that the “black bars” created by viewing a video isn’t a big deal at all!. It’s not a whole lot smaller and even without the pill cut out, the aspect ratio isn’t 16:9 so most videos are cut off anyway.
I’m looking forward to this Note, admittedly, I prefer the single Note10 with 4G/5G variants for those markets without 5G yet. They shouldn’t split the Notes too.. 😒

The mid camera hole is ok, but I still think that it’s silly for Chinese companies innovating more on a lot cheaper phones (regarding notch/holes solutions, including the last prototypes with camera under the screen). If the Chinese has the prototype, samsung should had be ready for mass production. But ofc I guess it’s safer and cheaper to wait a technology be invented and then “steal” it for your phone. tl:dr I am just salty that the camera is not below the screen + agree with the recent article that the note line should not have variants (except storage) –… Read more »

In a way, they admit that the second camera that looks like a pill is useless.
t’s much better to have it centered, more harmonious and will not shift the battery and other icons weirdly

I find the design extremely beautiful so I don’t think Samsung should make any changes but I hope the leaks about absence of microSD slot are not the reality.
