It’s a fact, not a rumor: Samsung is making another Note phone. What we don’t officially know… is everything else. The name — we’re going with Galaxy Note 20 in here — price, announcement date, camera configuration and any new stylus tricks are all unannounced. I’ve got some educated guesses about the Note 20’s features and details, and there are always the leaks, rumors and other speculation to fill in the rest.
If Samsung follows its historical patterns and unveils the Galaxy Note 20 family in August, its Unpacked event is sure to be virtual, given various states of lockdown in most countries. A Korea Herald report suggests the same (via Google Translate). Rivals like Apple, Huawei and OnePlus have also hosted their phone launches online.
What’s less certain is how the Galaxy Note 20 will be received. The Note line is well established as Samsung’s brand for power users, but the reality of the situation is that phone sales are in decline, while the chances of a global recession continue to climb. There’s some indication that Samsung could soften prices, or at least vary them, but more on that in the pricing section down below.
Read on for the top Galaxy Note 20 rumors, including all the specs we’ve heard and think we know. You can also brush up on the Galaxy Fold 2 rumors, Samsung’s next foldable phone that we think could arrive alongside the Note 20. This story updates frequently, so check back for the latest scuttlebutt.
Last year, Samsung unleashed the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. It would be unusual not to see two new Notes this year. The Note 20 and Note 20 Plus would certainly follow suit, and numerous rumors tend to agree.
What isn’t certain is if there will be a Note 20 Ultra in the future as well, to mirror the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Some rumors promote it, while others back away. For example, an unknown device thought to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 20 phones could actually indicate the Galaxy Fold 2, according to TechRadar, citing a tweet from display analyst Ross Young that’s now unavailable. If there is a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, it’d be a whopper, with a screen over 7 inches at the diagonal.
Possible Note 20 screen sizes, with details from Pigtou and Phone Arena, citing additional tweets from Young, which are no longer available (SamMobile posted the text here):
If the high-end Galaxy S20 phones got a 120Hz screen, it’s a smart bet that the Note 20 phones will have it, too. Phones with high screen refresh rates are a trend among the premium market. Any screen with an option to refresh each pixel more often than the standard 60Hz (60 times a second) promises liquid-smooth scrolling and gameplay.
Frequent phone leaker Ice Universe suggests a more „fine tuned“ version of the feature. Danish blog Galaxy Club goes a little deeper, suggesting that the update will use 15% to 20% less energy than the Galaxy S20 Ultra, a phone whose review unit guzzled battery in 120Hz mode rather than sipped it.
