As we are about to enter the 2nd half of the year, Samsung is getting ready to launch its new Galaxy Note 20 for 2020. Ahead of the launch, we now get a clear look at what it could look like and the design isn’t drastically different from other smartphones released by other Chinese manufacturers.
The legit-looking Galaxy Note 20+ design renders were revealed by serial leakster @OnLeaks in partnership with @Pigtou_. Similar to the current Galaxy S20, it still features a huge camera bump at the rear and a punch-hole that’s aligned on the top centre of the screen. Instead of having 3 models, the Galaxy Note 20 is said to be released with just two options – Note 20 and Note 20+.
Based on information obtained by @OnLeaks, the Galaxy Note 20+ will be noticeably bigger in size with a 6.9″ screen. As a reference, the current Note10+ has a 6.8″ screen while the Galaxy S20 Ultra gets a larger 6.9″ display.
As shown here, the Note 20 will have an almost flat display with a slight curve along the edges. Unlike the current Galaxy Note 10 series, the power and volume rocker buttons are now placed on the right side. Personally, I think is a more practical placement if you place your phone on its left side to watch videos in landscape mode.
At the bottom edge, you’ll find an S-Pen silo on the left, a speaker grill and a USB-C port. Nope, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack like last year’s model. It has been speculated that the device will come with a 4,500mAh battery and it would feature a fluid 120Hz display.
In terms of cameras, the Galaxy Note 20+ will feature a triple-camera setup which includes a periscope telephoto lens. The camera bump design is similar to what was leaked earlier by serial leakster Ice Universe.
It was recently speculated that Samsung may not include the 100x Space Zoom feature for the Note 20 series. It may still utilise the same 108MP ISOCELL Bright HM1 image sensor and it is speculated that the Note 20 series may be equipped with Samsung’s latest 50MP ISOCELL GN1 sensor that boasts both dual-pixel and tetracell technology.
The Galaxy Note 20 series is expected to be launched in August with pre-orders usually available in Malaysia a few days after the event. Traditionally, Samsung would organise a grand-scale Samsung Unpacked event to reveal its latest flagship smartphones. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it appears that Samsung will be hosting a live stream-only event.
