    Samsung confirms Galaxy Note10 launch for 7th August

    Pen-centric teaser video doesn't give much away about the phone or the Brooklyn event.

    Not too keen on the centre front camera location. It's right in central focal view when looking at the screen. I prefer the current S10 camera on the side instead.

    Also, don't fancy putting any greasy marks on the lens each time I pull the menu down from the top.

    I don't want a hole in my screen. It's that simple. That being said, if you can manage this through software and isolate this area of the screen (i.e. turn it black during film / photo / presentation playback and during normal use have it black with notifications either side) I'd be happy enough.

    The size with the curved screen might be an issue as holding the thing securely is bad enough with smaller edge devices. I do make regular use of the edge panel, etc but the actual curved screen just isn't much of selling point for me.

    I have to say Samsung has once again gone up in my estimation as a result of their screw ups. The Note 7 debacle resulted in a massive hit financially for the company but they did loads of research into the root cause and then published it for all to use as well as making their own batteries safer. They also took corporate responsibility even though they could have farmed this out to their battery suppliers. This time they've gone "awwwww.... poo" and recalled the devices very publicly, put an embarrassing hold on the product and then, most importantly, instead of blaming the reviewers for removing parts they shouldn't (I'd argue that the screen shouldn't come apart to start with...) the CEO took responsibility for rushing the product and admitted they made a mistake. That gets my respect especially as companies like Apple have so many recurrent issues and fail to even resolve many of them on the quiet, never mind taking public responsibility for them (the latest "feature" in a MacBook pro I've heard about is to put a connector in an area common for liquid ingress which has a 50V power rail next to a data connection which goes straight to the CPU with no protection... that has been known to be an issue for 3 or 4 years now and instead of ingress just shorting it but it failing safe and just needing the connector cleaning out, it fails by frying the processor).

    It's been said that the new S-Pen will feature its own camera. That might be what the teaser video alludes to.
