The Galaxy Note10 isn't slated to be announced until August, and slated to go on sale later that month. But that hasn't stopped case makers from announcing their cases and even putting them up for pre-order, nearly two months ahead of time.
Mobile Fun, a pretty popular smartphone accessories company in the UK, has already put up a number of cases for the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10 Pro for pre-order. These cases are from Olixar, a company that does typically launch their cases pretty early, often times ahead of the announcement of the phone.
These cases do line up with the leaks that we've seen for the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10 Pro. That includes the hole-punch display, with a camera centered at the top. As well as thinner bezels and a vertical camera lineup this time around, instead of a horizontal one – like we saw with the Galaxy S10 family.
The Galaxy Note10 Pro does also seem to have a slightly more curved display than the standard Galaxy Note10. According to Mobile Fun, it has a larger top bezel, due to the biometrics that Samsung has included in the phone. And those obviously won't be coming to the Galaxy Note10 unfortunately. The Galaxy Note10 Pro does also appear to have a few more sensors on the back near the camera. While the Galaxy Note10 has a flash next to the three cameras, the Galaxy Note10 Pro has what appears to be a Time of Flight Sensor and something else.
With the rumor we saw earlier today on the Galaxy Note10, it wouldn't be surprising to see that three-stage variable aperture on the Galaxy Note10 Pro only. Especially seeing how different these cameras are, in these cases from Olixar.
These cases do also show that the design rumors we've seen in the past few weeks are true, at least according to the information that Samsung provided to Olixar. That includes showcasing that triple camera setup on the back of the Galaxy Note10.
While Olixar does work with Samsung and has gotten some information on the Galaxy Note10's dimensions, these may not be what the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10 Pro end up looking like, when they get announced. So it's important to take this with a grain of salt. Even though it does line up with the recent rumors and leaks that we have seen for both devices. There's always a chance that Samsung could make some changes to the design before the phone is announced.
Right now, Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10 Pro on August 7, at an event in New York City. While Samsung has not yet made it official just yet, the August 7 date does sound about right. It's about the same time as last year, when Samsung announced the Galaxy Note9. It'll likely go up for pre-order that day, and then go on sale worldwide within a couple of weeks – usually before the Labor Day holiday. So we still have a bit of time before the Galaxy Note10 will become official.
