The new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones have now been officially launched!
And here is a quick summary of what you need to know!
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 | Note 20 Ultra : Virtual Launch
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones were unveiled on Wednesday, 5 August 2020!
But instead of a grand live show, it will be a virtual launch, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 | Note 20 Ultra : A Summary!
Here is a quick summary of the key features of the latest Samsung Galaxy Note devices!
The two models will come with different displays with different resolutions :
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra : 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X, curved edges
- Galaxy Note20 : 6.7-inch Super AMOLED+ (FHD+), flat
But both displays will support 120 Hz refresh rates, with HDR10+ colour.
They will both be powered by the Samsung Exynos Octa 990 globally, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ in the United States.
To ensure optimal performance in any condition, they are both kept cool by the world’s slimmest vapour chamber.
The Galaxy Note20 will come with 8 GB of memory, while the Note20 Ultra will have 12 GB of memory.
More importantly, these will be the latest LPDDR5 memory, which is not only 50% faster but also uses 20% less power.

- Galaxy Note20 : 12MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide, 64MP telephoto
Improved Video Recording
Both devices will support up to 8K video recording at 24 fps, as well as 720p video recording at up to 120 Hz.
But a key new feature is the Pro Video Mode, which introduces :
- adjustable zoom speed, for smoother and more dramatic zoom action
- adjustable audio source, letting you focus audio recording in a specific direction
– default, front, rear, USB and Bluetooth (with Galaxy Buds Live)
50X Space Zoom | 30X Space Zoom
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra : 5X Hybrid Optic Zoom with 50X Super Resolution Zoom
- Galaxy Note20 : 3X Hybrid Optic Zoom with 30X Super Resolution Zoom
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 devices will come with a free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription in select countries, giving you access to 100+ specially selected games.
On top of that, Samsung is giving it serious gaming chops, with an AI Game Booster feature, a high-resolution display with 120 Hz refresh rate and 240 Hz touch rate.
In addition, they also reduced the Bluetooth audio response time, to reduce audio lag.
Improved S Pen
They will both come with an improved S Pen with much lower latency (9 ms), and a lithium titanate battery that gives it 24 hour standby time.
The new S Pen will also support Anywhere actions – general Air actions that will work with any app :
- Move Backwards
- Recent App
- Smart Select
- Screen Capture
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will come with a slightly larger battery than the “regular” Note 20 :
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra : 4,500 mAh
- Galaxy Note20 : 4,300 mAh
They will both support wireless charging with reverse charging capability, of course.
Samsung will offer three colour options per model :
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra : Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black, Mystic White
- Galaxy Note20 : Mystic Green, Mystic Gray, Mystic Bronze
Rumours have it that Samsung will also introduce Mint and Purple colour options, even a BTS Limited Edition… eventually.
Ultra-Wideband Technology (UWB)
Both devices will support Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology, which enables the newly-announced Google Nearby Share feature – letting you share files by pointing at compatible devices.
UWB technology also allows the Galaxy Note20 devices to function as digital keys. And in the future, Samsung will introduce SmartThings, which lets you locate objects using AR (Augmented Reality).
Naturally, the Galaxy Note20 devices support Samsung DeX, which has been enhanced to support wireless projection. So yes, you no longer need a cable to use Dex!
