Renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G have surfaced online indicating a design similar to the Galaxy Note 10 Pro. The Note 10 5G could have slightly higher battery than the regular Note 10 Pro and might also launch later depending on the availability of 5G networks across the world.

New renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G have surfaced online and seem to confirm the chinless design with a central punch-hole camera that we've seen so far. While Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 10 at its Unpacked event in New York on August 7, it is not yet clear whether the Note 10 5G would also be launched on the same dais as 5G networks aren't quite ubiquitous yet.

We also hear about a possible 6.28-inch Note 10e, which will a cheaper variant of the Note 10 Pro similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10e. The Note 10 5G will offer similar specs as that of the Note 10 Pro including the 6.7-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED screen but with a 7nm Exynos 9825 SoC that supports 5G networks. There is no indication of a hardware Bixby button, but the power button and volume rocker are seen on the left implying that Samsung still considers physical buttons worthy unlike the HTC U12+.

The renders do not show an earpiece indicating that Samsung will be using Sound-on-Display to deliver audio for calls. The Note 10 Pro is expected to sport a 4,500 mAh battery so we could see a slightly larger battery implementation to accommodate the higher power requirements of using 5G networks. 

All Galaxy Note 10 models will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor and a single punch-hole selfie camera in the top center of the display. Just like the Note 10 Pro, the Note 10 5G will also feature a quad-camera setup at the back with one of the lenses being a ToF sensor. The camera is also expected to feature a three-step aperture — f/1.5, f/1.8, and f/2.4 to allow for better portraits and low-light images. 

The Galaxy Note series has retained the headphone jack so far and that looks to continue with the Note 10 lineup. While the non-Pro model stands to lose the microSD card slot, the Note 10 Pro and Note 10 5G will offer expandable storage. The SPen is said to be similar to what we've seen with the Note 9.

It is still early for pricing information to leak but word on the street is that the 'entry level' Samsung Galaxy Note 10e could start from US$800 with the Note 10 5G expected to start from US$1,300.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
