    OnLeaks through Pigtou

    It’s a truth, not a rumor: Samsung is making one other Note telephone. What we do not formally know… is every little thing else. The identify — we’re going with Galaxy Note 20 in right here — worth, announcement date, digicam configuration and any new stylus tips are all unannounced. I’ve obtained some educated guesses in regards to the Note 20’s options and particulars, and there are all the time the leaks, rumors and different hypothesis to fill in the remainder.


    If Samsung follows its historic patterns and unveils the Galaxy Note 20 household in August, its Unpacked occasion is bound to be digital, given numerous states of lockdown in most nations. A Korea Herald report suggests the identical (through Google Translate). Rivals like Apple, Huawei and OnePlus have additionally hosted their telephone launches on-line.


    What’s much less sure is how the Galaxy Note 20 might be acquired. The Note line is effectively established as Samsung’s model for energy customers, however the actuality of the state of affairs is that telephone gross sales are in decline, whereas the possibilities of a worldwide recession proceed to climb. There’s some indication that Samsung may soften costs, or at the very least range them, however extra on that within the pricing part down under.


    Read on for the highest Galaxy Note 20 rumors, together with all of the specs we have heard and assume we all know. You may brush up on the Galaxy Fold 2 rumors, Samsung’s subsequent foldable telephone that we predict may arrive alongside the Note 20. This story updates regularly, so test again for the newest scuttlebutt.


    New telephones: Note 20 and 20 Plus. What a few Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?


    Last 12 months, Samsung unleashed the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. It can be uncommon to not see two new Notes this 12 months. The Note 20 and Note 20 Plus will surely observe swimsuit, and quite a few rumors are inclined to agree. 


    What is not sure is that if there might be a Note 20 Ultra sooner or later as effectively, to reflect the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Some rumors market it, whereas others again away. For instance, an unknown system thought to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 20 telephones may truly point out the Galaxy Fold 2, in response to TechSwitch, citing a tweet from show analyst Ross Young that is now unavailable. If there’s a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, it might be a whopper, with a display over 7 inches on the diagonal. 


    Possible Note 20 display sizes, with particulars from Pigtou and Phone Arena, citing extra tweets from Young, that are not obtainable (SamMobile posted the textual content right here):

    Galaxy Note 20: 6.4 to 6.7 inches (From Young: 6.42-in tall, 2,345×1,084 decision)
    Galaxy Note 20 Plus: 6.9 inches (From Pigtou: 165mm tall, 77.2mm broad and 7.6mm thick)
    Galaxy Note 20 Ultra: Over 7 inches
    The Galaxy Note 20 is anticipated to look rather a lot just like the Galaxy S20 telephones.

    Ultrafast 120Hz display may save extra battery than the S20 Ultra


    If the high-end Galaxy S20 telephones obtained a 120Hz display, it is a sensible guess that the Note 20 telephones could have it, too. Phones with excessive display refresh charges are a pattern among the many premium market. Any display with an choice to refresh every pixel extra usually than the usual 60Hz (60 instances a second) guarantees liquid-smooth scrolling and gameplay.


    Frequent telephone leaker Ice Universe suggests a extra “fine tuned” model of the function. Danish weblog Galaxy Club goes a bit deeper, suggesting that the replace will use 15% to 20% much less power than the Galaxy S20 Ultra, a telephone whose assessment unit guzzled battery in 120Hz mode fairly than sipped it. Here’s extra details about the battery-saving 120Hz show expertise, known as LTPO.

    5G Galaxy Note 20 is virtually a given 


    We scarcely want a rumor to really feel sure that the Galaxy Note 20 line will help 5G speeds. The Galaxy S20 telephones do, with a caveat. There are some variants of the usual S20 which might be 4G LTE solely in sure markets, like Australia. 


    It could also be that some carriers in some areas will even promote a 4G LTE model of the usual Galaxy Note 20, like if the market continues to be constructing out its 5G networks, or if the provider prefers a less expensive 4G model for its portfolio. Globally, we strongly suspect these might be identified and marketed as 5G units.


    Here’s the place US 5G plans stand now, and tips about the way to choose the most effective 5G provider for you.

    Everything there’s to know in regards to the Galaxy Note 20

    5:28


    Last 12 months’s telephone was the Galaxy Note 10. Why is that this Note 20?


    Precedent is pretty much as good a purpose as any to imagine that the Note 20 is what Samsung’s calling this telephone — simply take a look at the Galaxy S20 line. That mentioned, precedent would additionally counsel we would see the Galaxy S11 and Note 11. Samsung shook up its naming conference to align with the 12 months. By that token, we may count on the Galaxy S21 and Note 21 in 2021. I can hardly look forward to the Samsung Galaxy Note 32!


    It may look identical to the Galaxy S20, solely sq. and with a stylus


    The suggestion that the Note 20 may look rather a lot just like the Galaxy S20 — however with squared-off edges and the S Pen stylus — pops up many times, and echoes Samsung’s sample for a number of cycles. Here’s why. The Note collection builds off the Galaxy S. If the S20 Ultra has 4 rear cameras, the fanciest Note 20 will match it or high it. 


    At instances, Samsung has used the Note to introduce a fair higher-shelf {hardware} or software program function, which helps differentiate it from the “more approachable” Galaxy S and in addition assist justify the brand new Note’s larger worth.


    Frequent Twitter leaker Max Weinbach put it bluntly, “Basically everything is the same.”


    Note 20 cameras: 100x ‘house’ zoom or no?


    Now we come to one among my favourite telephone subjects: digicam specs. Will the Galaxy Note 20 collection have 100x zoom or not? The reply to this query has an fascinating edge to it. Samsung proudly introduced the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 100x AI-assisted zoom known as Space Zoom, a novel asset among the many S20 vary and one of many options meant to justify the telephone’s stratospheric worth. 


    If Samsung passes on Space Zoom, as Twitter leakers Ice Universe and Sleepy Kuma appear to counsel (through the Korea Joongang Daily), it could possibly be learn as a uncommon admission of defeat on Samsung’s finish that its marquee function did not hit the correct notes. 


    It ought to be famous that lots of the rumor-fueled picture renders and supposed leaks of case designs present sq. cutouts for giant digicam bumps much like the Galaxy S20 vary.


    So what may we see on the digicam entrance? According to the Korea Joongang Daily:

    Galaxy Note 20: 12-megapixel wide-angle (foremost), 64-megapixel telephoto, 12-megapixel extremely broad angle
    Galaxy Note 20 Plus: 108-megapixel (foremost), 12-megapixel telephoto, 12-megapixel extremely broad angle. Laser focus may assist fine-tune focus in close-up pictures (a problem for the Galaxy S20 telephones).

    Winebach additionally agrees that the Note 20 Plus could have a 108-megapixel sensor.

    Samsung is rumored to be engaged on an under-screen front-facing digicam. Some assume the Galaxy Note 20 could possibly be the primary telephone to make use of it. Then once more, possibly not.

    What in regards to the front-facing digicam?


    A juicy rumor goes round that the Galaxy Note 20 may use Samsung’s first-ever digicam that sits beneath the show (additionally under). If true, it signifies that the sensor would not be seen more often than not. It is likely to be that you could be solely “see” the sensor when utilizing an app that works with the digicam, for instance, to point the place to look if you’re taking a selfie or video chatting.

    Galaxy Note 20’s battery, processor, storage dimension, RAM


    We’ve compiled some doable specs based mostly on numerous rumors, together with these from ZDNet Korea, Phone Arena and Galaxy Club.

    Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, Samsung Exynos 990 or Exynos 992
    Internal storage: 128GB or 256GB
    RAM: 8GB, 12GB, 16GB
    Battery: Note 20: 4,000mAh. Note 20 Plus: 4,500mAh

    Android 10 for now, Android 11 to observe


    We do not even want a rumor to know that the Galaxy Note 20 will include Android 10 to start out with and improve to Android 11. That’s as a result of Android 11 is in beta and is not prepared for prime time. 

    We are excited to inform you extra about Android 11, however now shouldn’t be the time to have a good time. We are suspending the June third occasion and beta launch. We’ll be again with extra on Android 11, quickly.— Android Developers (@AndroidDev) May 30, 2020


    Furthermore, Google postponed its digital occasion for June 3 in response to the protests that started sweeping the US on May 26. The software program big supposed to make Android 11 beta obtainable to all Android customers, not simply builders as it’s now — a vital step earlier than releasing the ultimate software program replace. 


    It’s totally doable that Android 11 might be prepared or largely prepared for carriers, however Samsung, which makes use of a posh software program layer over the Android base, usually wants extra time than different telephone manufacturers to completely take a look at and launch new Android variations.

    Look for an August launch date and sale date


    Will the coronavirus postpone Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy Note 20? That we do not know, although with international telephone shipments anticipated to drop 14% in 2020, it is totally doable that Samsung will wish to salvage what’s left of the 12 months by pushing forward with its plans.


    The annual August unveiling of practically each Note telephone is strategic, timed to predate Apple’s fall iPhone launch and set Samsung up for the vacation rush. Apple is rumored to presumably delay its iPhone 12 occasion as late as October because of the coronavirus.


    Price: How a lot may the Galaxy Note 20 telephones value?


    Galaxy Note telephones usually are not for the price range purchaser. Or at the very least that is how the lineup has been since its early days. I’d count on the Note 20 and Note 20 Plus to largely observe final 12 months’s pricing construction.

    Galaxy Note 10 vs Note 10 Plus costs

    Galaxy Note 10

    $949

    Price (GBP)

    £899

    £999

    Price (AUD)

    AU$1,499

    AU$1,699


    For context, two issues modified within the final 12 months to make the Note collection extra reasonably priced and, Samsung certainly hopes, extra approachable, too. 


    The very first thing that occurred was the usual Note 10 began at a extra approachable $950, down from the $1,000 beginning worth of the Note 9. (Meanwhile, the Note 10 Plus debuted at $1,100.) Samsung did not give the Note 10 fairly as many extras because the Plus, however the sub-$1,000 worth made it a greater worth total. 


    Samsung’s second determination was to announce the Galaxy Note 10 Lite in January. Never supposed for the US market, the telephone nonetheless struck me as vital, of proof that Samsung could also be prepared to vary one or two “rules.”


    I mentioned:, “Samsung’s impulse to create a “Lite” Note completely reverses everything the Note has come to stand for as the brand’s best of the best. In making a cheaper, more basic Note, Samsung is also democratizing the Note’s most distinct and enduring feature: the digital stylus.”


    Does that imply Samsung will shock us with a Galaxy Note 20 Lite? Probably not at this occasion. But it does imply there’s an opportunity the usual Note 20 may value proper round $950 once more. However, with the addition of 5G, which tends to drive prices up, the Note 20’s remaining value continues to be unsure.
