Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy Note 10 and following reports that the phone might feature a sound-on-display technology in order to remove the earpiece, it now looks like the Note 10 will also get a camera upgrade.
According to a tweet by IceUniverse, Samsung engineers are saying that the Note 10 will come with a three-stage variable aperture — an improvement over the dual-aperture camera found in the Galaxy S10 that was launched earlier this year.
Samsung China engineers said that the Note10 camera will use a three-stage variable aperture: F1.5/F1.8/F2.4

The tweet goes on to mention the three apertures that will be available to users while clicking pictures with the primary camera on the Note 10. If the tweet is accurate (and IceUniverse usually is), the Note 10’s primary camera will allow users to switch between f/1.5, f/1.8, and f/2.4 apertures on the phone’s primary camera.
The Galaxy Note 10 is expected to launch with a triple camera set-up, with a primary wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and an ultra-wide lens on the back, along with a punch-hole selfie camera to maximise display real estate without introducing a notch on the phone. The South Korean giant is also expected to launch a Note 10 Pro, which will reportedly add a fourth Time of Flight sensor to the phone for added depth information which should help with portrait mode, and even for AR applications.
Apart from that, the Galaxy Note 10 series of smartphones is expected to come with the Exynos 9825 or the Snapdragon 855 SoCs, depending on the region, paired with up to 12GB RAM, and up to 1TB storage, if the rumors are to be believed.
Obviously, all of this information is based off of leaks and rumors, so take this with a pinch of salt, if you will. The Galaxy Note 10 is expected to be launched on August 7, in Brooklyn, so stay tuned for more information about the phone over the coming months.
