Now, let’s dive a little deeper into some more details.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
The Galaxy Note 20 is said to face tough competition from the new Apple iPhone 12, however, based on the leaks and rumors we have seen so far, Samsung will surely introduce the best phone as it has always been. Ultra, with Samsung set to introduce the Note 20 series in a month’s time, it will get the jump.
Corning Gorilla Glass Victus
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may receive the next-generation Gorilla Glass Victus, which does not only protect its 6.87 inches mobile screen against deep scratches but also shattering.
As per the latest spec leaks, the device will come with a 5100 mAH battery, thus more power to you to accomplish tasks.
This new device can be the first Xbox phone, as Samsung has partnered with Microsoft to provide Project xCloud game streaming optimization through its latest devices.
Among some of the camera features, the device is also said to have a telephoto lens with pro video recording capabilities. The front camera is said to be a 40MP lens and the rear lens is said to be 108MP main with a 13MP telephoto lens, a 12MP ultrawide lens, and a LASER focus sensor.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
As per the latest news, the device may come powered with powerful Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 or the Exynos 990 chipset.
Greater storage for greater performance
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is said to be powered with 12GB RAM and 256/512GB of storage space. However, one of the tech news websites has reported that the phone could come with a 128GB of storage capacity. If so, the phone will sit a little low from the Note 10 variant that offered 256GB. Of course, the Note 10 didn’t have a microSD card slot, and the same would return in the Note 20 to balance things out. on the contrary, Samsung’s next-generation eUFS 3.1 storage could also debut in the Note 20 series.
According to the latest news from Samsung, it will host an Unpacked event on August 5 at 10:00hrs EST. While the technology giant hasn’t hinted at what to expect during the event, the show will be an attraction. Samsung may also release some other products including the Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. While the product may initially debut on August 5, the release date has not yet been confirmed yet. This may be due to the production issues related to the advanced LTPO display that Samsung is looking to incorporate into the device.
Based on the historical pricing structure, Note 20 Ultra is surely not going to come cheap. While Note 20 can be priced at $999, the Note 20 Ultra may not come at less than $1499.
One leak claims that the Galaxy Note 20 series may not be that expensive than its predecessors, another says it can be the most expensive Note series ever. However, an encouraging bit of news has arrived from a Korean site, saying the Note 20 Ultra can cost less than its predecessors.
Based on the rumors, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra looks similar to the Galaxy S20 in terms of design. Though an S pen holster for the Samsung stylus can be expected, additional features may include Samsung’s very own Infinity-O display design. Some images of the Galaxy Note 20 were leaked on tech websites and show that it can be slightly bigger than the Galaxy Note 20 without the rounded edges feature as we saw in Note 10.
Also, according to some other news, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may come with a luring glass back design as Samsung has been using for its premium phone segments.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs and processor
Leaked information renders the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra clearly topping the Galaxy S20 Ultra in Geekbench 5 testing. The Geekbench listing also reveals that the chip powering this device can top 3GHz, and suggests that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus variant mobile processor could find its way into the board. Though neither Qualcomm nor Samsung has committed to a new chipset appearing in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Samsung may still go with its flagship processors the Exynos 990 series or may also use the new Exynos 992 chipset.
With expectations on an ever high, the device may likely arrive with a 5G connectivity. The earlier Galaxy S20 line up that was introduced earlier this year supports 5G and Samsung will certainly follow suit with its new releases as well.
S Pen and other features
The S Pen is one of the marquee features of the Galaxy Note lineup, so it’s to no surprise that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may introduce new capabilities to the Stylus. Samsung’s code name for the phone is “Canvas” suggesting a focus on drawing and writing capabilities.
We haven’t heard much about the new S Pen features, but one leak confirms that the phone will offer a new virtual laser pointer mode for the stylus. This means that you can control the cursor without actually touching the screen.
Battery and Charging
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is said to sport a 5100 mAH battery to support the new LTPO screen technology and manage the screen refresh rates that have a positive effect on the power consumption. Also, the addition in this battery capacity is said to boost the daily longevity if it comes to pass.
Though it is still unclear what accessories will be made available with the device, ESR, a well-known mobile phone accessory brand, has introduced Galaxy Note 20 Ultra cases and other hardware accessories already. This tells us about the enthusiasm of users towards the new technology.
The final word
With two new launches from two mobile tech giants, it will be interesting to see which one meets user requirements the most. With rumors of the iPhone 12 launch being delayed, Samsung Note 20 Ultra can make the case that it is the phone to get.
We’ll keep you posted with more details as they arrive.
