Don’t expect the new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 to be radically different than what you’ve seen over the past year from the Korean firm. New leaks have seen the light of day, and thanks to renders based on it created by Pigtou we can see what the upcoming flagship will look like.
As has been the case in recent years, the Galaxy Note 20 will take many design cues from the Galaxy S family that preceded it. It will also share hardware with the Galaxy S20 Ultra, hinting that the new Note will only cater to the highest end of the market.
The Note 20 will have a big screen – not regular Note big – with the ‘normal’ Note 20 having a 6.7-inch display and the Galaxy Note 20+ having a 6.9-inch display. Last year’s Galaxy Note 10 had a comparatively modest 6.3-inch display. Otherwise, the front of the device will look almost identical to its predecessor.
The camera module at the back is very reminiscent of the one we have on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. It will definitely include a similar periscope zoom lens, but the details of the other cameras are still unknown. It wouldn’t be surprising if they are almost identical to those of the Ultra, however.
Samsung, like many other manufacturers, is moving away from the extremely curved, over-the-edge displays (obviously not the Motorola Edge). The Galaxy Note 20 will continue this trend, with an almost flat display. Only slight rounded edges remain, making the device comfortable to hold.
There may be some upgrades to the CPU and RAM compared to the S family. Expect this to come in the form of a Snapdragon 865G chipset and at least 12GB of RAM.
