Galaxy Note 10 Unpacked teaser focuses on tiny in-display camera
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ will officially launch on August 7, as has been expected. The Korean tech behemoth has sent invites out to the media inviting them to attend its latest Galaxy Unpacked event focusing on a couple of its unique selling points. As you would expect, the company is focusing on its productivity-oriented S-Pen and the tiny in-display selfie-camera that sits in the top center of the display.
While a number of its key Chinese competitors like OnePlus are switching to pop-up cameras of one sort or another, Samsung is persisting with the latest version of its Infinity-O display. In this instance, the cut out for the camera has been minimized to leave just the smallest hole possible in the display for this type of approach to the 'full-display-but-retain-the-selfie-camera-dilemma." For a smartphone that is focused on productivity first, we can see why Samsung didn't adopt the multi-selfie-camera arrays that you see on the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G.
Of course, Samsung will be bringing at least two Galaxy Note 10 devices to market for the first time. The "smaller" model centers on 6.3-inch display while the larger model features a 6.75-inch display. It is also likely that there will be a second Galaxy Note 10+ model that is fitted with a 5G cellular radio as well, for a total of three new Galaxy Note 10 models. It will also be interesting to see whether Samsung officially updates us on the expected roll out of the Galaxy Fold, which is said to be fixed and in mass testing with 2,000 new units in the wild.
