The City of Cape Town’s MyCiTi bus service has announced commuters will soon no longer be able to load cash on their myconnect card….
So a new set of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 renders have leaked, nearly a month before the phone’s set to launch worldwide (as if anyone expected the leaks would be minimised this time around.)
Published by WinFuture’s Roland Quandt, the phone bears a striking resemblance to the Huawei P30 Pro, thanks to that fade-to-pink colour scheme. It looks gorgeous, sure, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before.
Other features we’ve seen before includes that triple- and vertically-mounted camera array at the back, the lack of a physical fingerprint sensor, and no Bixby button on the side.

The Bixby button was likely not going to feature on the Note 10 in any case. When handling the Samsung Galaxy A80 at its launch earlier this year, we noted the lack of the button. Samsung will most likely integrate its smart assistant into its power button, like Huawei.
And yes, to answer the question on everyone’s lips: no, there’s still no sign of a headphone port. Whether it was on leave when these pictures were taken is anyone’s guess, but Quandt also notes in a later tweet that there will be a set of “wired in-ear headphone with active noise cancelling” incoming.
It’s not clear if these will be packed in the box for all customers, or feature as a pre-order exclusive.
Expect the phone to be leaked to death, much like the Galaxy Note 9 before it, well before its 7 August launch worldwide.
