The Galaxy Note smartphones have been always the preferred choice of smartphones for Android power users.
There is undeniably a stronger performance compared to the other flagship phones and not to mention the ever-useful S pen.
Although the Galaxy series phones are powerhouse phones, Samsung fans know better than to wait for a little.
Now, new leaks of the Galaxy Note 20 suggest that the waiting might be all worth it.
Galaxy Note 20 will be packed with 4,000mAh battery
Now and then, new bits of information about new and upcoming devices show up online. It’s the details we hold onto before phone brands officially reveal them.
And with Samsung‘s Galaxy S20 already out, that leaves us with the Galaxy Note 20.
As of right now, we are still in the early days, we have not much information about the upcoming headset. But, these are the details we know so far.
The folks at the Galaxy Club found out that the Galaxy Note 20’s battery will have a 4,000mAh capacity which carries part number EB-BN980ABY.
This suggests that the upcoming Note phone will have the same battery capacity as the Galaxy S20 model.
More precisely, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 battery has a rated capacity of 3,880mAh. This means the typical capacity should be around 4,000mAh.
Comparing it from last year’s Galaxy Note 10 which has a 3,500mAh non-removable unit, this already has the 500mAh increase.
Galaxy Note 20: What do we know so far?
An early leak of the handset’s case gave us an idea about how this device might look like. Roland Quandt, editor fo the Winfuture.de posted the images of the front and back inlay of the case on his Twitter account.
Based on the images, we now have a good idea of what we can expect from the Galaxy Note 20’s camera array.
But if these images are to be trusted, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 20 seems to be pretty similar in terms of the design.
Specs and Features
Let’s go to the device’s specs, shall we?
Both Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Plus are expected to feature the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC and 5G connectivity. Previously, there was a Galaxy S20 kernel source code that associates the Galaxy Note 20 with “kona” – a codename for Qualcomm’s latest chipset.
Additionally, the code also suggests that only the US variant will feature the Snapdragon chipset. So, perhaps, the handset in other markets will feature Samsung’s own Exynos processors – most likely the Exynos 990.
Was this a surprise?
Well, not at all since the Note 10 featured Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset in the US while the Note 10 in other markets came with Samsung’s Exynos 9825 chip.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 factory unlocked available on Amazon:
And as far as the features are concerned, the handset is expected to feature IP68 water-resistance rating. At least 12GB of RAM with no less than 256GB of internal storage.
And that’s not all…
The screen has an in-display fingerprint scanner integration, a multi-sensor camera, and the handset is also compatible with wireless charging.
From the Note line last year, only the Note 10 Plus featured expandable storage. Hopefully, at least the Galaxy Note 20 Plus gets the same feature. And we are lucky, maybe both will.
Unfortunately, Samsung has rid its premium phones with the headphone jack and we don’t think it’s going to make a comeback anytime soon.
Price and Availability
Some of the most expensive smartphones in the market are from Samsung and the Galaxy Note 20 series is no different.
We have not come across in the rumor mill about the pricing just yet. But the company’s pricing on its previous handset prices can give us an idea of what to expect from this handset.
Considering the Snapdragon 865 SoC, both models have a 5G-connectivity, we are seeing a starting price tag at no less than $1,000.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 will likely have a global launch. This means the handset will be available in the US, Europe, South Korea, and more.
Even more so, we are more likely to find out more about the Galaxy Note 20 series on Samsung’s August Unpacked event which is only a few months away.
