It hasn’t been long because Samsung introduced its S10 flagship trio and currently, we beginning hear rumors of its next flagship, which will probably be called the Galaxy Note 10. A new wild rumor doing the rounds suggest that the Galaxy Note 10 will ditch all the physical buttons in favor of force-sensitive buttons, in order to achieve a true, smooth style. This would be quite uncharacteristic of the company to make such an extreme style change, specifically since it withstood the desire to add a notch to its flagship phones, even when the smartphone industry got on that bandwagon with both feet.
According to South Korean news site ETNews, the Galaxy Note 10 is anticipated to be the first Samsung phone with a completely keyless style. The report additional states that this design would ultimately trickle down to other Samsung phones too, such as the Galaxy A-series, but whether we’ll see such lower-end items in 2019 or early 2020, is still unclear. The Korean translation isn’t the best however from what we can construct out, an industry observer has apparently specified that NDT, a producer of force-touch modules, is in consideration for providing such modules to replace the power and volume buttons on the Galaxy Note 10. There’s also a likelihood that the Bixby button will likewise be swapped out in favor of a touch delicate panel.
Going keyless is not exactly a brand new design instructions. At MWC 2019, Vivo showed off the Apex 2019 concept which didn’t have a single button or even a port for charging the phone. Meizu likewise flaunted a comparable principle called the Zero, which turned out to be more of a marketing stunt instead of a proof of concept. Now, it’s unlikely Samsung will be going to that severe and remove all the ports from its next flagship, however considering how the headphone socket is slowly vanishing and fingerprint sensors are being shifted to under the screen, it’s not a completely wild idea to get rid of the buttons.
Personally, we do not see any requirement to get rid the physical buttons. It’s not something we feel many people grumble about or have a problem with. These are still really early rumors so it’s best to take it with a big pinch of salt. The phone is slated to show up at some point in August with four video cameras at the back, similar to the Galaxy S10 5G variant. Do not be amazed to see a 5G variation of the Galaxy Note 10 too.
