Some well-crafted concept renders from PhoneArena have offered a good idea of how the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could end up looking. The new designs are based on recent leaks and rumors, which seem to have been mostly based on the front and rear camera setups of the upcoming high-end phablet series.
The main Samsung leaker himself, Ice universe, has shared some photoshopped "Note 10s" using a OnePlus 7 Pro as the foundation.

Update May 30: Ice universe has uploaded photoshopped images of two devices to make them look like models from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series. It appears he used a OnePlus 7 Pro for a foundation, and then placed a pill-shaped dual selfie camera cutout on the left image, presumably to make it look like a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro. For the image on the right side, which has been made to look like a regular Galaxy Note 10, a punch-hole has been positioned in the top center. He has had hundreds of responses after asking his followers which solution they preferred, and it seems the camera set to the side is more popular than the centralized hole. Both images can be seen below.

PhoneArena has published some great new renders of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The design has come a long way since the same outlet posted fantastic concept images of the forthcoming phablet back in March. The overall design looks more sophisticated now, and the range of colors on offer is both eye-catching and refined.

The front-facing camera has had a considerable makeover, thanks to the numerous reports by serial leaker Ice universe. Instead of a pill-shaped dual selfie camera setup located in the top right-hand corner, we now have a subtle punch-hole camera situated in the top center of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Love it or hate it, it’s arguably one of the better solutions for the selfie camera until under-display cameras start being implemented.

The rear-facing camera setup is completely different now. The horizontal bar at the top of the Note 10 has gone, and it has been replaced by a vertical alignment that is also based on more recent leaks. PhoneArena believes Samsung will position the quad-camera setup on the left-hand side of the Galaxy Note 10. This does seem like an obvious solution, but it could fly in the face of the “symmetry” rumor that is supposed to be relevant to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, which would suggest a centrally located camera setup.

But as the image source argues, placing the quad-camera setup in the middle of the Note 10’s rear would take up a lot of space in regard to internal hardware. So unless Samsung has discovered a way of squeezing all the vital components around the lenses, it does seem more practical to situate the cameras to the side. It’s possible Ice universe’s “symmetrical” comment only alluded to the front of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, anyway. Either way, PhoneArena’s latest images are even better than the previous ones.
