Just like any anticipated device, rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note are slowly piling like pancakes. Of course, the South Korean's flagship phablet is among the world's best Smartphones, and it is only apparent with the number of users and those that anticipate it.

Sans the minor hiccups and issues, the Galaxy Note is a top-of-the-line handset that's playing well above its pay grade. And with Samsung on the verge of putting the final touches on the next-generation Note, @UniverseIce tweeted a couple of revelations on "Da Vinci."

According to the famed tipster, Samsung might just change the setup of the Galaxy Note 10's front and rear camera. Phone Arena, who also reported about the rumor, said that revamped camera position is a "direct consequence" to yet another switch: the Note 10 will come with a 19:9 display ratio, making its real estate "taller" and allow for a thinner bezels and a "higher screen-to-body ratio."

In addition, both the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro will sport a small camera cutout. The website also presumed that the cutout will go at the center rather than on the corner. @UniverseIce added that the camera cutout will be smaller when compared to that of the Galaxy S10 series' snapper.

This new setup will also be adopted by the Galaxy Note 10's rear camera. One follower asked @UniverseIce if the change would mean making the rear clicker vertical instead of horizontal. The tipster answered with a "check," meaning that Samsung might actually do away with the horizontal layout that they used on the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 9.

Phone Arena also opened a familiar note that there is a "strong possibility" that Samsung might outfit the Galaxy Note 10 with a vertical camera setup on the top-left corner. This will follow the company's previous endeavor to "differentiate" the phablet from other flagships and in the process, make way for a larger battery pack.

Previous buzz pointed to the Galaxy Note 10 having a 4,300mAh battery and a bigger 4,500mAh on the Galaxy Note 10 Pro. There are also talks on the fact that the Galaxy Note 10 will "borrow" the imaging hardware of the Galaxy S10. It's not entirely true, but if it is, we could see both Notes to have a 12megapixel "variable aperture camera" plus OIS and phase detection autofocus.

A second 12megapixel sensor with OIS and 2x optical zoom will also be present, said the website. On the other hand, the Pro version of the Galaxy Note will also include a 16megapixel with super wide angle lens and a dedicated Time-of-Flight sensor. Wrapping up the camera rumors is a 10megapixel front facing camera and a "potential" 8megapixel depth sensor on the Galaxy Note Pro.
