No, Samsung and Tesla are not building a Tesla Edition Galaxy Note 10

You've probably seen a certain story popping up on your news feeds this morning about the "leak" of a "Galaxy Note 10 Tesla Edition." No such product has leaked and there is no reason to believe a Tesla Edition Galaxy Note 10 exists. This wasn't even a rumor until this morning, when a certain publication rather renowned recently for producing brain-dead clickbait posted about it, but allow us to unravel this very, very, very easily debunked (did I mention just how easy it was?) story.

The Galaxy Note 10's camera might come with a three-stage variable aperture

The Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Pro have leaked sufficiently already, and thus, we have a pretty good idea what the phones will look like. We also know that they will most likely lose the headphone jack but keep physical buttons, and that they will probably be "unpacked" on August 7. Another interesting rumor is also making its rounds, courtesy of leaker Ice universe, who claims the Note 10 will come with a three-stage variable aperture lens, consisting of f/1.5, f/1.8, and f/2.4.

[Update: Buttons aren't dead] The Galaxy Note 10 won't have a headphone jack or physical volume and power keys (rumor)

Speaking to a source familiar with the company's plans, Android Police has learned that Samsung will likely begin its wind-down of the headphone jack - and even physical keys for functions like volume and power - with the Galaxy Note 10. The Note 10 will have no 3.5mm connector, and exterior buttons (power, volume, Bixby) will be replaced by capacitive or pressure-sensitive areas, likely highlighted by some kind of raised 'bump' and/or texture along the edge (i.e., a faux button).

Samsung VP says Galaxy Fold is "ready to hit the market"

Samsung's Galaxy Fold should have been on the market for several weeks at this point, but the company delayed the launch after the first batch of review units began failing at a high rate. It pledged to modify the foldable display so it wasn't as prone to failure, but news has been hard to come by since then. In a recent appearance, Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-cheol said that the Galaxy Fold is almost ready to launch.

Galaxy Note 10 tipped for Unpacked event on August 7

Samsung, as with anything or anyone else, has its ups and downs, but the swings and roundabouts this year have been vast: the bread-and-butter Galaxy S10 series has been selling at a decent clip, but the bleeding-edge Galaxy Fold was kept out of market due to engineering concerns. The company may be pinning its hopes on another upswing with the release of the Galaxy Note 10 and we now have a good idea of when that will happen.

[Update: Note9 too] Samsung Galaxy S9 gets Night Mode and other camera improvements in latest update

Samsung isn't known for gracefully aging devices, with previous generations quickly falling out of the company's favor. However, the firm is getting better at providing timely updates, as the Galaxy S9 received the rethought TouchWiz One UI along with Android Pie in December, giving it the same software as its successor. Now, the aging flagship received another update that improves the camera, giving it a dedicated Night Mode and further refinements.

[Update: Now on sale] Samsung reveals fitness-oriented wearables, Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e

As expected, Samsung is full of announcements today, including a new, slimmer successor to 2017's Gear Fit2 Pro that looks to be a direct competitor to the Fitbit Alta HR/Charge 3. The new pair of fitness-focused wearables go by the name Galaxy Fit, with a lower-end black and white display model gaining the "e" suffix. Both of these fitness-oriented wearables do activity and sleep tracking, run similar software, have built-in heart rate monitors, "full touch capabilities," and are water resistant to 5ATM, but the similarities end there.
