From the revamped mid-range phones to an all-new flagship Galaxy S Series, up to the Galaxy Fold, Samsung is on a roll this year. Now, that’s all out of the way — all eyes are on the upcoming Galaxy Note 10. While it’s still early to talk about it, the public is already being teased by a reputable source.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Rumors
For the past several weeks, Ice universe(@UniverseIce) has been consistently dropping hints regarding the Galaxy Note 10. One of the most interesting tweets cited a “breakthrough in the appearance of smartphones in the second half of the year”. He further mentioned brands — Huawei, Vivo, and, of course, Samsung. Then, this is his most recent tweet:
In the second half of this year and next year, the shape design of mobile phones is very avant-garde, even beyond the imagination of mobile phone concept maps and videos made by fans.

Obviously, we’ve been seing recent Note releases during 2nd half of the year. With the Galaxy S10 now available in three sizes, there should be a differentiating factor from the Note 10 as having an S-pen isn’t enough in 2019.
Note 10 Could Be the Perfect Fullscreen Phone That We’ve Been Waiting For
This is where the company’s design philosophy comes in. Samsung currently uses its three new Infinity displays – V, U, and O. However, the goal is always to have that perfect fullscreen phone — no pop-up cameras, no motorized parts, no cutouts.
Last month, Samsung’s VP of R&D Group, Yang Byung-Duk, said that “the technology can move forward to the point where the camera hole will be invisible, while not affecting the camera’s function in any way.”
In conjunction with that is this tweet:

The image above could be our first look of the Galaxy Note 10 — featuring symmetrical design with the exception of the (obtrusive) centered camera. There’s a possibility that Samsung is ready to introduce an under-screen selfie camera this coming August to pave way for the perfect fullscreen. Even though Yang Byung-Duk was originally quoted “it wouldn’t be possible to make (a full-screen smartphone) in the next 1-2 years”, Ice universe has been providing accurate (leaked) information for the past several months.
