Don't Wait for a Massive Redesign
If you're hoping for a massive redesign, you might need to wait until 2020 or later.
Earlier this year, a report from Korean site ET News claimed that Samsung was planning to make some big design changes on the Note series.
Specifically, it looked like the Note 10 could be Samsung's first phone with "buttonless" design with no physical volume keys or power button. Instead, the controls would become gesture-based.
He states that the Galaxy Note 10 "pursues stability and maturity." He says the first version of the Note 10 did not have physical buttons but that "it did not pass Samsung's rigorous testing" so the final version keeps the physical buttons.
As for the button-less design, he says we'll see it, perhaps on a different phone, in a few months.
According to Ice Universe, "Da Vinci's" (which, again, is the codename for the Note 10) design is symmetrical which is a slight change. You can get a feel for what could be the Note 10's final design in these renders from OnLeaks and PriceBaba.
Ice Universe has also leaked a protective film sample of the Galaxy Note 10 and it shows off the device's thinner bezels. That's one change you can look forward to.
There will be changes, sure, but at this point it doesn't look like we'll see a radical redesign this year.
