Samsung’s Note 20 is either an exercise in restraint or a downgrade depending on who you ask.
What you need to know
- Following leaks of the Note 20 Ultra, the regular Note 20 has leaked in full.
- It’s a less spec-heavy version of the S20 Ultra, ditching the 120Hz display for 60Hz, dropping the RAM to 8GB, and featuring a slightly less responsive S-pen.
- That said, It’ll still carry the same Exynos 990 SOC and 5G support.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 has leaked in full, courtesy of German tech publication WinFuture. It’s a lot less impressive than the Note 20 Ultra which was leaked earlier in the day by the same site.
Running through these new specs, the Note 20 will ship with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED 60Hz FHD+ display. It’ll have a triple camera with a 12 MP main shooter, a 12 MP ultra-wide lens, and a 64 MP telephoto with 30x space zoom. Inside, you’ll find 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The S-Pen will be slightly slower than that on the Note 20 Ultra, with a latency of 26ms as opposed to the 9ms latency on the former.
Finally, it’ll come in three colors: Mystic Black, Mystic Bronze, and Mystic Green. The rest of the specs are broadly speaking the same as the Ultra’s, so expect the Exynos 990 processor, Android 10 with One UI onboard, and of course — 5G support.
All in all, while the Note 20 is still powerful, it doesn’t revel in its excess as the Ultra does. The Note 20 family and a couple of other Samsung devices are expected to launch in two weeks at Unpacked, and we expect Samsung to devote a fair bit of time to it especially after pre-announcing the Z Flip 5G.
