Samsung has declared its latest Unpacked event for August 7th at 4 PM ET at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY, where the company will be launching the Galaxy Note 10, the latest in its line of super-sized stylus-equipped smartphones.
There’s not a ton to go by from the invite: just a picture of an S Pen and a single camera lens. The latest news does give a bit more to go by, with rumors of a new design for the Note 10 that will highlight a single front-facing camera set in the display (similar to the Galaxy S10 earlier this year), although the Note 10 will supposedly be putting that camera dead center on the screen.
There are also opposing rumors about the 3.5mm headphone jack, with one report claiming that Samsung could be axing the audio port on the Note 10. There are also reports that Samsung will be releasing two sizes of Note 10 this year, as it has for the regular Galaxy S line of phones in previous years, with rumored 6.28-inch and 6.75-inch sizes. The company may also be offering 5G variants of both of those sizes, for a total of four different Galaxy Note 10 models.
The biggest question for the August 7th event is not whether the Note 10 will show up, but whether Samsung will use that event to give announcement date updates on its other long-missing products, like the indefinitely delayed Galaxy Fold, which Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh stated today was pushed to market “before it was ready.” There’s also the missing Galaxy Home speaker, which was announced alongside the Galaxy Note 9 last summer and still has yet to get a release date (the last survey from Samsung was Q3 2019, but the company has missed multiple release windows for the Galaxy Home before).
