“Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will reportedly ditch the physical volume rocker and power button”
Samsung has been tipped to be working on multiple variants of Galaxy Note 10 flagship smartphone. At this point, we know a fair share of details, including the camera arrangement, battery capacity, 50W fast charging support, and more. Samsung has made sure it retained the headphone jack even on its flagships, despite competing brands ditching it a long time ago. However, things might finally change with the 10th anniversary Note handset. According to a report from Android Police citing insider sources, the Galaxy Note 10 would ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack and even eliminate physical buttons, including volume rocker and power button, corroborating with earlier rumours.
These buttons have been tipped to be replaced by capacitive or pressure-sensitive areas, which could be highlighted by a textured surface or with a bump around the frame. This could mean that Samsung might adopt a thinner design (keeping in mind the space for stylus), which could be a significant shift from Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9 design. Sources also confirm the existence of multiple models of the phone, with two different display sizes, in-line with recent reports. But as we are still months away from the launch, things might take a drastic turn going forward.
Earlier reports suggest the standard Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could pack a 6.28-inch display, while the rumoured Galaxy Note 10 Pro is expected to sport a relatively larger 6.75-inch screen with 1,440 x 3,040 pixels resolution. The triple rear camera module on the base variant could be stacked vertically and another one on the right side which could be a TOF sensor, this completing the quad camera setup. The handset is likely to run Android 9.0 Pie with One UI out of the box, UFS 3.0 storage and 50W fast charging support.
