Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 9 last year as an iterative update to the Galaxy Note 8. The smartphone got updated features for the S Pen, and a larger battery, but overall it sticks with the design and aesthetics of its predecessor. So, it now seems likely that major changes will arrive with the launch of Galaxy Note 10 later this year.
While there aren’t many details on the next version of Samsung Galaxy Note flagship, the leaks so far indicate that the Galaxy Note 10 is expected to come with a quad-lens camera system. The setup could comprise a 12-megapixel f/2.4 aperture telephoto lens with OIS support, a secondary 12-megapixel f/1.5-f/2.4 dual aperture lens with OIS support, and a third 16-megapixel f/2.2 aperture sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens and lastly the fourth lens could be a 3D ToF sensor.
The leaks also reveal SM-N975F model number for the Galaxy Note 10 5G variant and model number SM-N970 for the 4G-only version. The Galaxy Note 9, introduced in August last year, features a 6.4-inch display, however, rumors suggest that the Note 10 could sport a 6.75-inch display – the largest ever in the Galaxy Note series, PhoneArena reports.
