Samsung finally shows courage with the Galaxy Note10
Samsung will finally make the courageous leap into the world of headphone jack-less smartphones, starting with the Samsung Galaxy Note10+. Losing the headphone jack on the “Plus” variant isn’t particularly novel; HUAWEI has always dropped the headphone jack on their Pro variant while keeping it on the regular version.
This information was accidentally shared by the FCC which apparently made the images public before quickly removing them. The images reveal more than just the headphone jack, or the lack of it, but also confirms the centered selfie camera cutout.
In addition to that, the Galaxy Note10+ will also have a triple camera setup that’s offset to the right. It looks eerily similar to the HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro‘s design, as there is even a row of perforations beside the camera bump.
One is definitely the LED flash, but one of them should be a 3D ToF depth sensor, which Samsung first experimented with in their DxOMark-topping Galaxy S10 5G. The last one might be a RGB sensor, or Samsung’s typical heart rate sensor.
There seems like there won’t be a Bixby button, as Samsung has finally decided to listen to consumers’ feedback. Since it solves a complaint and also helps Samsung save money, this change couldn’t have come sooner. Samsung has also decided to favor lefties too, by placing all the physical buttons on the left side.
The rumored specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ are as follows:
