Samsung Galaxy Note 10 FCC Listing Confirms The Absence Of a Headphone Jack

It is no surprise that the South Korean giant Samsung is gearing to announce the next flagship Note series in less than a month. The company recently officially confirmed the next Unpacked event on August 7th in NYC. Considering the official unveiling isn’t far away, the Galaxy Note 10 lineup rumors and leaks are swirling at a very rapid pace. We have new leaks almost on every other day. Today the Galaxy Note 10 FCC listing appeared online which reveals key design details.

Key Design Aspects

The FCC listing confirms what Samsung is cooking inside regarding the Galaxy Note 10 design. The listing images confirm the Note 10 has aluminum chassis with glass on the front and rear side. The rear side has triple cameras setup on the top left corner with LED flashlight right next to it. The front-facing side has punch-hole in the center for the selfie snapper.

The punch-hole selfie camera and triple rear cameras are certainly one of the most rumored aspects of Note 10. The edges are gently curved so that the device can be grabbed easily. The device dimensions are 162.5×77.6mm. It comes with a fairly large 6.7-inches display panel. In terms of connectivity the Note 10 support with WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE. This specific variant lacks 5G support.


The listing images spill bean regarding key design changes of Note 10. So far all Samsung premium flagships have 3.5mm headphone jack, the Note 10 is rumored to deviate from the track. The images also suggest no traditional 3.5mm headphone jack for the Galaxy Note 10. The bottom edge has a USB-C port for the connectivity and charging. The bottom firing speaker grille and S-Pen jack are on the right side of the port like its predecessor.

The physical fingerprint scanner isn’t visible on any of the images. This means the Galaxy Note 10 will also have an under-glass fingerprint scanner. Another prominent difference in the design is the lack of dedicated Bixby AI button. Today’s leak confirms the Note 10 also gets a complete design overhaul like the Galaxy S10 series.

The Galaxy Note 10 Pro and 5G variants details are still in the dark. In the end, we would like to hear our readers thoughts regarding the Galaxy Note 10 FCC listing in the comments section below. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
