Rumours have started making rounds on the internet about the launch of Galaxy Note 10. Samsung is reportedly going to release its upcoming smartphone in the Galaxy Note series, the Galaxy Note 10, on the 7th of August. Along with the highly anticipated smartphone, it is going to introduce a novel technology that even the iPhones can’t boast of. This technology is known as Speaker on Display, aka SoD. Let us look at this in a bit more detail.

Galaxy Note 10: What is SoD and ToF?

It is outstanding to even think that a company provides this required technology at an early time in its development. Other than Samsung, there is one more company which have tried the SoD technology into their smartphone releases – LG. They introduced the tech upgrade in their smartphone LG V8 ThinQ a few months ago.

What technology does is that it reduced the need to have small speakers at the front like most smartphones. On the contrary, it makes use of the tiny bezels on the screen and converts all of them into a speaker. It allows Samsung and any other company who uses it, reduce the size of its top bezels. Work on this technology had been going on for some time now, but it looks ready for usage now.


Ice Universe, a reliable source for leaked Samsung news, posted on twitter about this upcoming new technology in their smartphone. However, it is not the only leak that is being circulated around regarding the smartphone. A Russian blog called hi-tech claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be the having sky-rocketing prices. While the Galaxy Note 9 and S10+ had the same base price of $999, this Galaxy Note 10 Pro is expected to have one in-between $1,1000 and $1,200.

Another new technology that is expected to make a debut with the Galaxy Note 10 is the Time of Flight lens. Both new Note 10 models may be having it upon launch in 2 months, with the technology also set to be used in other Samsung devices as well. What the ToF lens does is that it measures the time required by light to reach the subject and collects a lot of depth data in the process. Not only does this help with 3D recognition and adding Bokeh effects, but this data is also useful in AR and VR applications of the same.

What Else to Look Out for?

The SoD and the ToF lens are not the only attractive things to look out for in the Galaxy Note 10. Reliable leaker OnLeaks posted on twitter about the most probable designs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

It is going to sport an Infinity-O display like that of the Galaxy S10. In addition to this, the hole punch camera would be located centrally on top of the smartphone. A fingerprint sensor is due to be built right inside the screen, doing away with the external sensor. The triple lens on the back is placed to one of the sides.

The only surprising thing is that the headphone jack is apparently missing. Is Samsung going to really go down the road taken by Apple? We’ll have to wait and watch to be sure.
