Yesterday a schematic of the Galaxy Note10’s rear camera arrangement leaked, and we showed you a render approximating what that would look like on the back of the upcoming device. What about the front, though?
Since the Galaxy S10+ comes with two sensors in the punch-hole screen cutout, you’d expect the Note10 to have at least that number of cameras tucked in there, but apparently you’d be wrong. Both the Note10 and the Note10 Pro (yes, we’re getting two models this year, four if you count the 5G-enabled offshoots) will only employ one front-facing camera.
This information comes from Ice universe, a leakster that has provided reliable info in the past. And it is the same person who has confirmed that this render of the upcoming Note10 is in fact correct. This, then, is what Samsung’s next flagship smartphone will look like.
The render was created by Ben Geskin and is not a leaked image, but we should probably expect it to be extremely close to the official promo pictures. Once again the new vertical arrangement of the rear cameras is confirmed, with two islands – a bigger one towards the left edge, and a smaller one to its right, housing the LED flash, ToF camera, and possibly a flood illuminator too. Over in the main hump, expect to see a wide, ultra-wide, and tele lens, and don’t be surprised if these are identical to those in the Galaxy S10+.
It’s good to see Samsung ditching its horizontally aligned camera island abominations for the Note10, but apparently the new design is controversial. So what do you think? Does it look better than what we got for the S10+ and S10 5G?
