The iconic Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is so close from its official launch, but new leaks and reports surrounding the next Galaxy Note flagship keep coming in.
After concept designs and alleged case renders gave us a look at what the Galaxy Note 10 might look like, a new report states that the phone might pack Time of Flight sensor for an enhanced imaging output. The news comes from Samsung’s home ground, where a camera lens maker is reportedly upgrading its manufacturing capabilities to fulfil Samsung’s demand of tof lenses on its upcoming smartphones, with the Galaxy Note 10 said to be one of them.
The report further adds that Samsung is looking to add ToF modules to more phones after debuting it on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which had one on the back and another one on the front. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is reportedly among the Samsung phones that will pack a ToF sensor, or maybe even two. Previous leaks have also indicated that the Galaxy Note 10 will pack a ToF sensor.
The timing and venue of Kolen’s manufacturing upgrade indicate that the Galaxy Note 10 might feature a ToF sensor after all. The company is constructing a new plant in Vietnam that will be ready by July and will start operations in June. It must be noted that Kolen is Samsung’s partner for camera lenses and aims to manufacture ToF modules first through its new plant in Vietnam, a place where Samsung also makes a large chunk of its phones.
The larger Galaxy Note 10 Pro variant also shares the same display design with hole-punch as the Galaxy Note 10. Hopefully We will know more when Samsung lifts the cover from the Galaxy Note 10 at its Galaxy event on August 7 in New York
