07 Aug The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Sound Review
Samsung will be officially unveiling the latest addition to it’s Note range on 7th August. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and this will come in three different varieties. A lot has been made of the different technologies available on each of the new phones, but all of them are likely to feature one great new feature from Samsung and that relates to the sound.
A More Seem less Display
One thing that every phone needs is somewhere for you to be able to hear what a caller is saying, and this has meant that all phones have had an ear piece of some description on them, so you know where to listen. When you look at the images of the new Note 10, you may be wondering what happened to this ear piece as there is nothing obvious on display. The only hole in the infinity display is for the much talked about front facing camera, so how does the sound work. Well the Note 10’s use a new technology called Sound on Display, and what this does is turn the whole of the front display into a speaker, so no matter where you put your ear on it you will be able to hear what is going on.
How Does It Work?
What this technology does is place a small pizeoelectric vibration mechanism below the display, and this caused the display to vibrate with the sounds being made. This vibration is then what causes the sounds to be transmitted to your ears. This technology is intended to be the next big thing in mobile sound systems as it allows the display to be even more ‘complete’.
The innovation is also said to help stop sounds from the speaker being overheard by people surrounding the user, so that it doesn’t interfere with others. This isn’t the first time this technology has appeared in a phone though, as Samsung themselves have already used it in the M40 phone. Other manufacturers have also debuted the technology in the likes of the Huawei P30 Pro and the LG G8 ThinQ which also have Sound on Display mechanisms.
Samsung are also ditching the headphone jack on the new Galaxy Note 10 range, which means that you will have to use Bluetooth to connect to any device that you want to play music through. Though this is increasingly becoming standard across most phones as we move towards having no openings on the phone anywhere. When it comes to listening to music on the phone, most phones employ a dual speaker setup in order to deliver quality stereo sound.
This is normally accomplished by having a secondary speaker towards the bottom of the phone that provides the stereo aspect. How this works with Sound on Display is something that is still being bottomed out, but it seems likely that Samsung will use a secondary speaker along with the bottom to accompany the sound on display speaker that you get with the phone.
