Samsung is all set for the launch of its second flagship of the year. After several from last month, the Korean giant has announced August 7 as the launch date of the next Galaxy Note device. Today, Samsung sent out press invites confirming the date and location. The latest Unpacked event is scheduled for August 7 at 4PM ET (August 8 at 1:30AM IST) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Samsung is expected to announce of the next Galaxy Note: the Note10 and the Note 10 Pro, and 5G variants of both. There are reports which claim that the Galaxy Note 10 Pro could be called the Galaxy Note 10+.
There is not a whole lot of information revealed by the invite poster: just a picture of an S pen and a single camera lens. The latter obviously hints at the punch-hole display like the Galaxy S10, although Samsung will reportedly be putting it at the center of the Note 10 screen. Furthermore, the leaks suggest a fresh design for the rear cameras as well.
Rumours also suggest that Samsung will launch a Note 10+ alongside the regular Note 10. The major difference between the two could be in the size of the display. The regular model will allegedly feature a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, while the elder sibling is supposed to sport a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED panel. These specifications are not confirmed but the images of allegedly belonging to the Note 10 Pro are already making the rounds on the internet.
On the optics front, the Galaxy Note 10 is rumoured to feature a triple aperture camera setup: f/1.5, f/1.8, and f/2.4, on the back. The primary lens will be able to switch between the three apertures to give users control over the depth of field, and the amount of light entering the lens. Apart from the primary triple-aperture wide-angle lens, the Galaxy Note 10 will sport a telephoto lens, and an ultra-wide lens. Additionally, the Note 10+ is expected to add a fourth Time of Flight sensor for added depth information and various AR applications.
However, aside from the extremely clear launches, the question is whether we will get any update on the release date of the long-missing Samsung products, like the Galaxy Fold, and the Galaxy Home speaker (which was announced alongside Note 9) on August 7. Let’s wait and watch what happens to these products.
Looking at Samsung’s history of early product leaks, we should get a lot more information about the Unpacked event in the coming weeks. So stay tuned with Digit for all the action as we get closer to August 7.
