Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and iPhone XR 2019 leaked together in hands-on photos
The official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series is just under a week away and although we know a fair bit about the features and specifications by now, the leaks just don't seem to stop. While we have a good idea as how the Note 10 would look like thanks to renders and dummy cases, famed leakster Ice Universe has now tweeted what appear to be 'real-enough' pictures of the Galaxy Note 10+ that were sent to him by an unknown person. What is more interesting in this leak is that another phone's image is seen in the Note 10+'s reflection, possibly that of the iPhone XR 2019.
The Note 10+ shots seem to confirm what we've been expecting so far — a nearly bezel-less design with a punch-hole camera, the volume rocker and a Bixby button to the left, and a clear forehead indicating the possibility of a Sound on Display (SoD) feature instead of the traditional earpiece.
Information about the iPhone XR 2019 that is reflected in the Note 10 Plus's display is still scarce. We do know that the iPhone XR 2019 (or iPhone 11, if you will) could sport a square and bumpy camera module as seen in recent case renders and we see that here as well. However, this could be a cheap iPhone clone as well so we'd advise some caution here. The area where one would typically expect to find the Apple logo seems to be covered. Also, while the reflection of the cloudy sky in the Note 10+'s screen seems to be pretty clear, the iPhone's reflection looks somewhat doctored.
Another report indicates that the cut-outs in the transparent plastic sheet aren't symmetrical, which does raise a few eyebrows about the authenticity of the photo. We cannot confirm the legitimacy of the leak at this time so do take this with a pinch of salt. That being said, the phone will eventually land up with many carriers and early reviewers so expect to see more such leaks as the launch date nears.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ is expected to be quite a beast of a smartphone with a 6.8-inch QHD+ AMOLED display, an Exynos 9825 or a Snapdragon 855 Plus under the hood, a 12+12+16 MP triple camera setup, a 10 MP selfie camera, 12 GB RAM, 256 GB UFS 3.0 storage, and a 4,300 mAh battery.
