Previously, the Note 8 had the codename "Great" and the Note 9 was given the codename "Crown".

However, in many cases, Samsung uses codenames that don't hint at the phone's features.

An amalgamation of facts and circumstance suggest Samsung's Galaxy S10 might be revealed in a number of phones in late 2018 and early 2019. As we discussed thoroughly in our Galaxy Note 9 review though, the problem with the Note 9 isn't power or performance. It's unclear if Samsung will fare better in the holiday quarter, but next year is definitely looking up. The Samsung Galaxy S10 of 2019 looks to be no different according to a report from a Korean news site.


Samsung only unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 last month, but we already have the first leak about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Samsung were rumoured to be trying to get it ready for their phones this year but were not happy with the reliability of the sensor instead opting for the more traditional fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device. Assuming the source is correct, this rules out Samsung making the Note 10 a foldable phone.

That snippet of info comes from Twitter user Ice Universe who has a good track record of leaking accurate info on upcoming Samsung handsets. Specifically, it's said to be codenamed "Da Vinci".

While we wait on further leaks and official details, check out the concept video below by TechConfigurations to see just how revolutionary the Note 10 could be. The stylus is the defining feature of each of Samsung's Note series phones, so it's hardly a surprise that the company would use an artist's name as the next-gen model's codename. That means we can expect the Galaxy Note 10 to feature next-gen 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor embedded in the display, and a new triple-lens camera system on the back. But what that would mean in terms of upgrades we're not sure, as the Note range is already versatile.
