Unfortunately, it seems that we have been tricked by the units before the release of Note 10 and Note 10 Pro supplied with “fake” headphone jacks … for some reason. Even if 100 percent stone has not yet been recorded that Samsung has actually killed the audio connector, it certainly doesn’t look promising … once again. The original story continues, with the rest of the information likely to emerge, at least for the moment.
The speculation of the Galaxy Note 10 has been everywhere in recent months, but after a fairly long period of confusion and sensationalism, things are starting to calm down, with the latest rumors indicating a new design and many exciting improvements but nothing even out of the box. In fact, the two most divisible changes that should occur only a little backward may not decrease, after all, at least until the spring’s Galaxy S11 line up.
We’re talking about those invisible, pressure-sensitive alternatives, the physical side-mount buttons that we never expected to go anywhere, as well as the controversial movement of killing headphones. Although there is no new evidence to support these claims, we are willing to accept Max Weinbach’s word. The XDA writer and Twitter’s rapid rise have more information than the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Pro, courtesy of an anonymous source that supposedly “played” with the two devices in their advanced pre-release form.
It Seems Almost Perfect But There We Still Hope For A Good Old Jack
Although several credible reports and several extremely plausible renderings have largely hinted at Samsung’s intentions to exterminate the traditional 3.5mm audio jack, we now believe that the headphone jack doesn’t go anywhere. This is mainly because, well, we want to believe it, but it’s also interesting to note that the wave of gossip seems to change.
In addition to Weinbach, the Olixar cases photographed by Mobile Fun seem to suggest recently that Note 10 and Note 10 Pro will leave a space at the bottom to allow users to physically connect to their old headphones. It’s subtle and you might not notice it at first, but some of the renderings definitely have a small cut in the right place for a jack.
Otherwise, we hope these bad guys end up looking like Steve Hemmerstoffer who described them a couple of weeks ago. We are talking about incredibly thin bezels, a front-centered camera housed by a “hole punch” inserted in the beautiful “Infinity-O” AMOLED display and conventional power and volume keys located on the left side of both phones.
Sound On Display Technology, Cameras, And A Surprising Omission
Many of the alleged information provided today by the internal source of Weinbach is not particularly impressive, reiterating and thus supporting the credibility of the existing voices floating on the web. This includes three shooters vertically aligned on the back of the smaller version of the Galaxy Note 10 (like the iPhone XS, but not the imitator), plus a fourth image sensor separated from this module on the Pro model and positioned under the flash on the right of the triple lens stack.
Furthermore, it is not surprising that Samsung is preparing to remove the upper speaker grille, which probably means that Note 10 and Note 10 Pro will use their screens to produce sounds through vibration. The SoD (sound on display technology) has already been adopted by LG G8 ThinQ, but we hope that Samsung will manage it better and not reduce in terms of audio quality.
What is certainly unexpected is that the Galaxy Note 10 which is not Pro could come without a microSD card slot, which probably means that the larger variant will support the expansion of external storage. It would be a rather strange move by Samsung from at least a couple of points of view. On the one hand, the company has worked tirelessly at this advertising corner in the past, promoting Note 9 last year, for example, as “ready for terabytes” with the obvious help of expandable memory. At the same time, it does not seem a good idea to deprive the smaller, lower, and cheaper feature model that many users take for granted.
It is interesting to note that this particular item reminds us of something similar to Huawei a couple of years ago. But even then, it was the high-end Mate 10 Pro that abandoned the microSD card slot, not the standard Mate 10.
