Samsung is set to hold its next Galaxy Unpacked event on Aug. 7 in New York where it will reveal the Galaxy Note 10. However, you can already preorder the device if you don’t care to wait until it’s officially announced. While Samsung doesn’t technically say it has opened Galaxy Note 10 preorders, it is allowing consumers to “reserve the next generation of Galaxy” now. In other words, you can reserve a spot to buy whatever device is revealed on Aug. 7, although we expect it to be the Galaxy Note 10 and possibly a larger Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
In addition to reserving a place in line for a Galaxy Note 10 preorder and early access to select a color and storage option, you will also receive a $50 credit to buy Samsung accessories to go with your new smartphone. The sign-up page also has a link which will enable you to check the value of your trade-in device to see how much you can save on the price of the Galaxy Note 10.
While it might seem a bit strange that Galaxy Note 10 preorders are essentially up before the phones have even been announced, so many details about them have been leaked that we don’t expect any surprises next week. Traditionally the Note has been the epitome of Samsung features every year, packing all of the company’s high-end features and its hugely popular S-pen stylus.
Rumors have been suggesting for months that there could be two or possibly even three variants of the Galaxy Note 10, including a smaller entry-level model, a bigger Galaxy Note 10 Plus and a 5G variant. Some rumors have also suggested there will be 5G variants of both the smaller and larger models. Either way, adding an extra Note variant will be new this year because Samsung has always released a single Note device since the series’ inception.
Based on leaks, we expect the Note 10 to have a 6.3-inch Infinity-O display with a hole punch. The display will likely be similar to the one on the Galaxy S10, which was released earlier this year. We’ve heard that the Note 10 Plus will have a 6.8-inch display and possibly come with 5G standard.
The Note 10 is expected to have a triple-lens camera with a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide lens and a zoom lens on the rear. The Note 10 Plus could have a DepthVision Camera similar to what the Galaxy S10 Plus has.
