In a pair of independent tweets, XDA Developer’s reliable insider Max Weinbach and the untouchable Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) have stated that the Galaxy Note 10’s new camera design is a mess.
Referring to his sources, Weinbach stated: “I think the Note 10 Pro is going to look much worse than people think with current concept designs. Like much much worse.” And when challenged on that, responded: “Dude you have no idea”.
Hemmerstoffer was similarly downbeat when asked if the Galaxy Note 10 design was “an improvement or a step back from the S10+?”. He revealed: “It looks bad compared to #GalaxyNote9 rear camera design… IMO at least.”
While the value of a smartphone is obviously more than what’s on the outside, if both Weinbach and Hemmerstoffer are correct (and they usually are), this would be a badly timed error from Samsung. Why? Because Apple’s new iPhones will have an objectively awful camera designand this was Samsung’s chance to capitalise on Apple’s design monstrosity.
Of course, if you look deeper, the Galaxy Note 10 is still a powerhouse internally with next-gen storage, upgraded RAM and the fastest charging Samsung has ever put into a smartphone. There are also some display changes buyers should appreciate.
Looking for some good news? If the Galaxy Note 10 turns out to be a missed opportunity just wait because it appears Samsung will have a significantly more ‘creative’ smartphone launching soon afterwards.
