We’re weeks away from the Samsung Note 10 launch on August 7. However, the rumor mill is running at full steam. The newest claims the smartphone will get a few radical new features, like gesture controls via the S-Pen audio and video that only records audio from one source.
Different details appear to verify previous rumors, like a two-model launch (the standard Note 10 and a bigger Note 10 Pro). However, the more exciting claims are new. In line with Greek site TechManiacs, which cited a knowledgeable source, the S-Pen will support gesture controls to navigate and produce context-appropriate sounds (if you’re utilizing it to highlight text, it will make sounds like a highlighter marker, for instance).
The rumor additionally mentions the Note 10’s video will include ‘Zoom Audio,’ a feature first launched in the LG G2 way back in 2013. It promised to record one source of a sound and block out the rest. However, the outcomes had been mixed.
Perhaps essentially the most concrete prediction is the removal of the Bixby button. Instead, you’ll allegedly have the ability to summon the voice assistant with the power button, sort of like we might do – briefly – with the delayed Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Even the lower-key predictions appear a bit out of step for the Note line. For example, the source claims the bigger Note 10 will weigh 198g, while the smaller can be 168g – which is far lighter than the 201g of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Additional, the source claims the smaller Note 10 will only come in FHD+ and the bigger in QHD+, which can also be odd given the Note 9 had a QHD+ (1,440 x 2,960) resolution. In different words, the source predicts that the smaller model can be a bit downgraded compared to the flagship specs of its predecessor.
