There are rumors that the Galaxy Note 10 will debut in the coming months.
In fact, CNET, quoting sources familiar with the matter, said the device will be unwrapped by Samsung on August 7 at an "Unpacked" event in New York.
Although such a date has not been confirmed by Samsung, it is certainly possible, given the fact that note 9 debuted around the same time of year in 2018.
The Galaxy Note 10 was quoted to arrive in a total of four models; two with a screen of 6.28 inches and another couple with a larger panel of 6.75 inches.
The larger of the two devices was speculated to be called Note 10 Pro.
The claimed renditions of note 10 Pro have recently come courtesy of OnLeaks and Pricebaba; the hardware was presented with a full-screen design and a cut-out inside your monitor for a single front camera.
However, unlike the South Korean technology giant's S10 series, the Note's punch was positioned in the middle of the device at the top, not the side.
The back of the phone was displayed with a quad-camera system consisting of a primary, telephoto, ultra wide-angle and flight-time (TOF) sensor.
In an article discussing alleged claims, Pricebaba has stated that the smallest Note 10 will come without a TOF module.
Since the appearance of the images, the renowned tipster Ice Universe has claimed Note 10 will feature a unique camera feature that can allow it to go beyond the Samsung S10 series.
The spout said Note 10 will have a three-stage variable aperture in one of its cameras, citing "Samsung China's engineers."
It was stated that Note 10 would be able to switch between F / 1.5, F / 1.8 and F / 2.4.
If true, this would represent a major improvement over the Galaxy S10, which is only able to switch between F / 1.5 and F / 2.4.
Different values of F / refer to aperture of a camera – this highlights how much a particular lens is opening.
Different openings can be used in various circumstances; Opening a lens to its wider capacity allows more light to enter and thus can be useful in dark scenarios, for example.
Having a greater amount of opening options for Note 10 would not only allow it to better match the amount of light in a given situation, but would also allow the hardware to further adjust its depth of field.
The latter means that Note 10 owners may have more options to adjust the background blur level when taking a picture in portrait mode, for example.
Although the new camera features that pertain to Note 10 will surely excite Samsung's fans, it's worth noting that the company's next phablet has officially been discussed.
