Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e flagships a few months ago. Following a spate of Galaxy A-series and M-series launches, the spotlight has now turned towards the next big thing from the South Korean brand, the Galaxy Note 10. Samsung is expected to launch the upcoming flagship in August, and the word on the street is that this time around, there will be a Pro variant as well. We can now confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro is indeed launching this year. In collaboration with reliable tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer aka OnLeaks, we bring you high-resolution 5K renders and a 360-degree video of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro, along with a couple of renders showing the Note 10 and Note 10 Pro side by side.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro renders and confirmed specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Note series tends to build upon the design of preceding Galaxy S-series flagships, and Note 10 Pro is no different. As you can see in the renders below, you get a similar premium glass sandwich design, along with a few changes when it comes to the camera placements.
The Note 10 Pro features the signature boxy look of previous Note devices. On the front, we can see the edge-to-edge display with curved edges and negligible bezels on the top and bottom. What catches our eye is the centered punch-hole selfie camera, a deviation from the S10 lineup’s top-right corner placement. Additionally, the Note 10 Pro features only a single selfie shooter, while the Galaxy S10+ had dual selfie cameras. According to OnLeaks, the display will measure 6.75-inches. As for the overall dimensions, the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will measure 162.3 x 77.4 x 7.9mm, with the thickness stretching to 8.5mm over the rear camera bump.
Speaking of the camera bump, the rear panel of the smartphone is seen housing a quad-camera module just like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. This includes three cameras along with a fourth ToF (3D depth) camera. Going by the S10 5G’s setup, we can expect the cameras to include a 12MP primary, 12MP telephoto and 16MP ultra wide-angle lens. The cameras are arranged vertically (vs horizontally on the S10 series), similar to the Galaxy A9 (2018). There’s no physical fingerprint scanner, which pretty much confirms the Note 10 Pro will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, likely the ultrasonic one from the Galaxy S10 series.
According to OnLeaks, the phone features a very thin metal frame, which gets thicker near the buttons. The physical buttons for power and volume can be found on the left edge, while the right side is barebones. The bottom of the phone houses the S-Pen slot, microphone, loudspeaker grill and Type-C port. The SIM card tray can be seen just over the camera module on the top edge, a placement that seems rather odd. A secondary microphone along with what looks like an IR blaster are placed alongside. Notably, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro seems to be missing the infamous Bixby button, while the the 3.5mm audio jack meets its demise as well.
Coming to the rest of the specifications, the 6.75-inch display of Galaxy Note 10 Pro is expected to be a Dynamic AMOLED panel, with a resolution of 1,440 x 3,040 pixels and HDR 10+ support. At its core, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Pro will have a Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 SoC, depending on the region. The chipset will likely be backed by up to 12GB RAM. Previous reports have suggested the Note 10 series will feature UFS 3.0 storage, a 4,500mAh battery and 45W fast charging.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Note 10 Pro renders
Apart from the standalone Note 10 Pro renders, OnLeaks has also shared two renders of the Note 10 vs Note 10 Pro. The size difference is obvious, with the Note 10 featuring a smaller 6.3-inch display. The smaller Note gets only three cameras at the back, and is missing the 3D depth camera seen on the Pro variant.
The Note 10 also seems to sport a slightly thicker bezel at the top compared to the Note 10 Pro. Apart from this, the phones look pretty much the same, at least from the outset.
