As per a new leak by reputed tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy Note 10 case renders have been spotted which show that the device does not appear to come with a headphone jack, something that has been reported for some time now. Surprisingly, it appears that the case renders have a small cut-out at the top which could indicate that the Note 10 might come with an IR-blaster.

Apart from that the tipster has revealed what appears to be the screen protector of the Galaxy Note 10 which shows the circular cut-out in the top center for housing the punch-hole camera. The back of the phone can be seen housing a triple-camera setup with a 3D  ToF sensor.
