The Galaxy Note 10 isn’t expected to hit the market until August, but we’re already getting an early look at the design thanks to OnLeaks. These aren’t official renders, but the images are instead created by OnLeaks based on CAD files. Previously OnLeaks has produced early renders of the Galaxy S9, OnePlus 7 Pro, and a ton of other phones, which have all turned out to be very accurate.
It looks like this year’s version of the Galaxy Note is taking a very rectangular approach to phone design. First there’s the display, which has sharper corners than previous versions, which used rounded display corners. The bottom and top edges of the phone look almost completely flat, while the longer sides curve around the phone making it easier to hold. It kind of looks like an old Nokia Lumia Phone.
The Galaxy S10 debuted Samsung’s hole punch-style display, which, rather than a notch, cut a hole in the display (with lasers!) giving you a spot for the camera. On the Galaxy S10 this hole was in the upper-right corner; on the Galaxy Note 10 it’s apparently dead center. The Galaxy S10+ featured two front-facing cameras, but here there is only one.
