Galaxy Note 9 launched back in August and it is expected its presumably titled successor, the Note 10, will be unwrapped by Samsung at around the same time in 2019.
Ahead of its grand unveiling, the Note 10 has been the subject of myriad rumours.
The most poignant of these has speculated the device could break from Samsung tradition by releasing in more than one model.
Murmurings have suggested four flavours of the Note 10 could release in total; two with a 6.28-inch display and another pair with a 6.75-inch panel.
For each sized variant it has been claimed a 5G version of the product could be made available.
Concept designer Ben Geskin recently took to Twitter and showcased a couple Note 10 renders based on current design rumours, many of which surfaced thanks to tech tipster Ice Universe.
One of the images, that was said to be accurate by Ice Universe, showed the alleged Note 10 with an all-screen design similar to the Galaxy S10.
The device similarly featured a cutout within its display for its front-facing camera but, unlike the S10 series, the hardware was showcased with its hole punch positioned at the top of the device in the middle rather than off to the side.
Additionally, the supposed Note 10 was displayed to come with a triple camera system on its rear positioned vertically rather than horizontally on the S10.
Finally, the camera module itself was placed on the left-hand side of the hardware’s rear rather than being placed in the middle.
While it is anticipated the Note 10 will sport a new design and come with a number of new features, it appears at least two claimed models of the device could be at a major disadvantage when compared to the current Note 9.
That is because a new report from GalaxyClub has declared the smaller, alleged 6.28-inch, versions of the Galaxy Note 10 could arrive with a 3,400mAh battery inside.
The outlet claimed to have found such information from a part number that corresponds with the model numbers for the handsets in question.
If true, such a capacity would fall well below the 4,000mAh cell inside the Galaxy Note 9.
If the claimed battery of the smaller Note 10 is accurate, the huge disparity between its capacity and that offered by the Note 9 means the former could deliver superior life, even if it does have a slightly larger display.
However, it is worth noting Samsung has not discussed the future of its Note series in any capacity, therefore it is encouraged users take the new rumours with a pinch of salt for now.
