Is it big enough to fill the hole left by Huawei?

Google might be content to just tweet out photos of its upcoming phones, but Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 looks to be following a more traditional script.

The latest: Shara Tibken atCNET is reporting that “people familiar” say it will launch on August 7th in New York City. The first week of August certainly is the right timeframe for a Note launch.

The Note is traditionally Samsung’s premier platform for showing off new phone technology (setting aside the Galaxy Fold for a moment, anyway). This year, rumors point to the company creating two different sizes, one of which will be 5G, and neither of which will have a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Most recently, we have the above-pictured, leaked render from @Onleaks and Pricebabawhich shows Samsung getting closer to eliminating the top and bottom bezels altogether. It also moves Samsung’s hole punch selfie camera to the middle, instead of off to the side as it is on the Galaxy S10. Rumors point to the larger Note having a massive 6.75-inch screen while the smaller should be 6.3 inches diagonally. It appears there will be three cameras on the back, aligned vertically instead of horizontally.

CNET says that Samsung will once again use the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to host attendees, and that the Unpacked event will be “flashy.” Neither of those details are a surprise — though here’s the part where we stop setting aside the Galaxy Fold and just ask: what the heck is going on with Samsung’s foldable phone?
