The Samsung Galaxy Note10 is not scheduled to arrive until August, and while we wait for more info to leak, Ben Geskin has released two new concept designs of the upcoming flagship. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you will see two designs that are almost identical, with one rather noticeable difference.

The first design included a display camera cutout for a single camera, while the other one includes a pill-shaped cutout for two front-facing cameras. Interestingly enough, the designer opted to center those cutouts at the top of the display, they're not moved to the left or right side, like on the Galaxy S10 series.

Some rumors did indicate that Samsung may include those cutouts in the middle this time around, but chances are the company will put them on the right, same as it did with the Galaxy S10 series.

The source claims that these two designs are based on rumors, and as you can see, other than the display cutout, these two designs show a basically bezel-less smartphone, even though a barely noticeable "chin" is included below the display. Speaking of which, the display is curved, which is something we're used to when it comes to Samsung's flagship smartphone lineup.

The designer opted to include the power / lock key on the right-hand side of this concept design, while the volume up, volume down, and Bixby buttons are located on the left. There are three cameras included on the back of this phone, and those three cameras are vertically-aligned. Below those cameras, you will notice a heart rate sensor, an LED flash, and Samsung's branding.

The back side of this phone is curved, as expected, and the device seems to be made out of metal and glass. The designer opted to keep a 3.5mm headphone jack here, as you can see by looking at the very bottom of the device, as a headphone jack is located next to a Type-C USB port.

The Galaxy Note10 series is expected to arrive in August, though Samsung did not confirm anything just yet, of course. The company is rumored to release both the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro, while both of those models will be available in 4G and 5G variants, allegedly.

Much like with the Galaxy S10 series of devices, the Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro are expected to arrive in two SoC variants. European and Indian variants will be fueled by the Exynos 9820, while the US and Chinese models will ship with the Snapdragon 855.

The Galaxy Note10 series is expected to arrive in several RAM variants, starting at 6GB of RAM, while Android 9 Pie will come pre-installed on both devices. On top of Google's operating system, you'll get Samsung's very own One UI skin, which the company pre-installed on the Galaxy S10 series devices. We're expecting to see plenty of Galaxy Note10 leaks moving forward, the closer August is, the more leaks we'll be seeing, as is the case every year when it comes to Samsung's Galaxy Note series of devices.
