Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 could be a buttonless phone: Report
Samsung's Galaxy Note 10, the next iteration of the company's flagship phablet, could come as a surprise for many.
Here's everything we know so far.
Samsung working to apply "keyless" tech on Galaxy Note 10
The report claims (based on translation) "Samsung Electronics will apply keyless technology to its next smartphone".
Moreover, China-based NDT, a manufacturer of force-touch modules, will possibly supply force touch modules to Samsung.
The report further adds that the Korean tech giant also plans to apply keyless technology to "mid-end and low-end smartphones such as the Galaxy A series".
Galaxy Note 10 will offer a seamless design
If the report turns out to be true, Samsung will perhaps replace the Note 10's volume keys, power button and the Bixby key with haptic feedback-based capacitive buttons on the side of the frame.
Hence, this design will allow for a smooth, uninterrupted design along with improved water and dust resistance.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 renders reveal punch hole design
Separately, according to early renders, Note 10 will retain the design of S10+ to feature a pill-shaped camera hole, a bezel-less screen, and an all-glass design.
On the back, it will sport a quad camera array - similar to S10+ 5G model.
And while the screen size remains uncertain, the device will come with a Dynamic AMOLED display and an in-screen ultra-sonic fingerprint sensor.
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
Galaxy Note 10 is likely to come with the same camera optics as the S10 5G.
So, the camera array may offer a 12MP (f/1.5-f/2.4) main sensor with dual-pixel OIS, a 12MP (f/2.4) telephoto sensor with OIS and autofocus, a 16MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide angle sensor, and a 3D depth sensor.
Up front, the phone is expected to have a 10MP+8MP setup.
Under the hood
Internally, Note 10 could be very much like the S10+ with a Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 processor, upto 12GB of RAM and upto 1TB of embedded storage.
However, the storage format will most likely be UFS 3.0 which is present on Galaxy Fold but lacking on S10 flagships.
Under the hood, we can expect a 4,500mAh battery with support for two-way wireless charging.
Pricing and availability
Given Note 9 came in August, we can expect Samsung to launch Note 10 around the same time this year as well. As for pricing, the flagship phablet should come at a starting price of $1,000 or roughly Rs. 70,000 in India.
