Infinity-O no: Divine concept video for Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is too hole-y

A finely crafted concept video of a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 phablet has been posted on YouTube. The creator of the video has specifically stated that it is not based on leaks, which helps explain some differences between the device shown in the clip and what is currently expected from the real thing.

An artistic version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 phablet has appeared in a video uploaded to YouTube by the designer known as Concept Creator. The clip shows the device to have a quad-camera setup, which is widely believed to be something the next generation of Galaxy Note will feature. The concept phablet also has an Infinity-O display that can offer mixed feelings upon viewing.

It seems Samsung could probably come up with a better selfie-camera solution, especially for the next series of Galaxy Note models, than putting a hole in the top and center of the undoubtedly beautiful display. It looks incongruous, like mounting a Google Street View camera on an Aston Martin Vanquish, and hopefully the South Korean manufacturer will treat the Galaxy Note 10 to a more innovative or subtle front-facing camera setup.

Moving on from the big hole in the display, the Note 10 in the clip also features hardware buttons. There is a strong rumor that the upcoming phablets from Samsung could have pressure-sensitive displays and therefore would be doing away with the unnecessary extra weight on the sides. There’s also a lovingly long view of the S Pen, which may or may not include a camera in it.

Concept Creator then moves on to exploding the lenses of the quad-camera setup in a majestic manner before reminding us that a Qualcomm Snapdragon (855 or its possible sequel) will likely be powering this wondrous beast of a phablet. Or maybe Sony will opt for either an Exynos SoC or regional variants, like it did with the Galaxy S10 smartphones. A quick flash of 5G reminds us that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is going to have two 5G-ready variants.

It’s a very impressive video, and the concept version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 does look immensely appealing. But you just have to hope that Samsung thinks twice about sticking a punch-hole right through the top center of the phablet; even a pill-shaped cut-out for a front-facing dual camera setup that sits in one of the corners seems like a less egregious choice.
