Rumour has it the Galaxy Note line might go away

With the differences between the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S lines diminishing, Samsung might be doing more harm to its flagship smartphone segment. A new rumour from tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) suggests that Samsung might be thinking about this problem and the company might unite the two under the Galaxy One brand. And the one reportedly getting axed is the more innovative Note brand. Instead of releasing two flagships at the start and latter part of the year, the company might focus on the S series. This flagship will launch at the beginning of the year with phones that also carry the S Pen.

As for the gap in the fall, Samsung is said to be considering filling this in with the Galaxy Fold. As MSPowerUser points out, the Note line did start as Samsung's more experimental line. It makes sense that Samsung's most out-there product right now takes its place. But according to this is still reliant on a few factors. He tweets, "Assuming that Fold performs according to expectations—both functionally and in the market—the hope is to deploy its successors as a second-half flagship, in the spot that would be vacated by Note. This was described as still being very fluid and tentative at this stage." For now, these are all rumours, and we still have the Note line. But we're keeping our eyes out for any changes to suggest otherwise.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro will reportedly up the camera game

Huawei's next major flagship, the Mate 30 Pro, is highly anticipated by smartphone fans. And one of the biggest things about the phone will be its camera setup. New leaks about the phone cite the three advanced specs for the camera. According to @Rodent950 on Twitter, the phone will have a 40MP 1/1.5" sensor with f/1.6 - f/1.4 aperture, RYYB pixel layout and Cine lens (for videos), 40MP 1/1.7" 120-degree ultra-wide lens with Cine lens, and an 8MP telephoto 5x zoom lens. Famous leaker Ice Universe corroborates the claim by saying the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 "has no chance of beating [the] Mate30 Pro in terms of camera hardware." The larger sensors being pegged for this phone signals Huawei taking cues from the likes of the old Nokia Lumia 1020 of having large high-resolution sensors to achieve the best picture quality.

Other rumoured specs of the phone include a new edge-to-edge waterfall screen, HiSilicon Kirin 985 processor, integrated 5G modem, 55W fast-charging support, and 10W wireless reverse charging support.

Samsung Galaxy S11 might kick off the new era for the company

Embed from Getty Images

We know the Galaxy Note 10 isn’t here yet, but that isn’t stopping the rumours from coming in about Samsung’s next flagship. Samsung leaker/insider Ice Universe shared some details about the S11 that we’re anticipating. The phone is reportedly being called “Picasso,” who is known to be a revolutionary painter. (In case you wanted to know, the Galaxy Note 10 was codenamed Da Vinci, who was known for his do-it-all brilliance.) The camera will get a “substantial” upgrade. It’ll reportedly have a smaller front-facing camera than the Note 10. The S11 will supposedly launch with the second-generation version of Samsung’s One UI interface on top of Google’s upcoming Android Q. And it will reportedly run on next-generation memory that won’t work with the Note 10.

There’s a possibility that the S11 will take its cue from the Note 10, which will reportedly drop the headphone jack and get rid of the microSD card slot for the entry-level. But it’s being said that the Note 10 is dropping this to make space for the S Pen. Perhaps with the S11, Samsung might change its mind. It’s going to be quite a wait until we see the S11 and whether it ushers in a new era for the company.

There won’t be a Galaxy Note 10 Tesla Edition

A render made its rounds on the internet recently that suggested Samsung was working with Tesla for a special edition version of the upcoming Galaxy Note 10. Unfortunately, that was just a render created by YouTuber Arun Maini on Twitter. It made its rounds on the Chinese blogging platform Weibo that suggested we were getting a “Galaxy Note 10 Tesla Edition.” It seemed plausible because a lot of phone makers have been partnering with luxury brands to release special edition models of their devices. You have Huawei with Porsche Design and OnePlus with McLaren, to name a few.

While this rumour has been squashed, what is happening soon though is the launch of the Galaxy Note 10. It’s reportedly happening on August 7, with two versions of the phablet being introduced.
