Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Will Reportedly Have 60Hz Display, Plastic Back
It was last year that Samsung fissioned its Note flagship to offer two differently-sized variants – the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+. Samsung is expected to continue this trend with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series. But a new report makes it seem like the difference between the Note 20 and the Note 20+ might be wider than some of us expected.
A report from WinFuture gives us not only renders of the phone but also the specifications. One of the first notable changes is that the display on the Note 20 won’t have curves like the Note 20 Ultra or the Note 10. In fact, unlike the Note 20 Ultra and the S20 series, the display won’t even boast of a higher refresh rate which is a bummer given that the Note 20 is still expected to be a flagship phone.
While the device will look quite similar to the Note 20 Ultra, the report claims the back will be made of some sort of plastic. The Note 20 Ultra, on the other hand, will likely be covered by Gorilla Glass 7 and will be the first phone to boast of it.
The cameras on the Note 20 also differ from its elder sibling. It won’t be getting the 108MP camera and will instead feature a 12MP primary sensor, a 12MP ultrawide sensor, and a 64MP telephoto lens.
Internally, the phone is expected to run on the same processor as the Note 20 Ultra. If you’re in the US, the phone will likely be powered by the Snapdragon 865/+ SoC while some other markets such as India and Europe are expected to be powered by the often-criticized Exynos 990 SoC.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will also have support for Microsoft xCloud and the S-Pen. Although the S-Pen most has a latency of 26 milliseconds which does not reach as low as that of the Ultra model’s S-Pen.
The phone will make its debut at the Samsung Unpacked event on August 5 where we’ll likely also see the launch of other products such as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live.
