The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra have barely been on the market for a month, and they're already being deeply discounted. We can't say that it's due to poor sales in particular this early in the game, but these discounts tend to be the case for most Samsung smartphones shortly after launch since the same happened with the Galaxy S20 family. In this case, Amazon is knocking $200 off the price of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which means that they now start at $799 and $1,099 respectively. Both smartphones are packing flagship-caliber features to justify their high price tags, but we can’t help but feel that this lower price point is more in... Read more...
Last week we posted our review of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, a premium handset that delivers excellent all-around performance and has a gorgeous display. But one thing we did not do is disassemble the phone. We leave that kind of thing to the teardown experts, and the folks at iFixIt have answered the call with a teardown of both the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, with an interesting discovery with regards to cooling. More on that in a moment. As is often the case these days, the Galaxy Note 20 follows the script for using ample adhesive to keep the chassis in place. Or as the teardown gurus put it, the adhesive for this generation "remains annoying tough," though at least the... Read more...
Samsung announced its latest flagship, large-format smartphones -- the brand-new Galaxy Note 20 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G -- at this month's Galaxy Unpacked Event, along with a host of additional wearable and tablet products. As is typically the case when Samsung updates its premiere line of devices, the new Galaxy Note 20 family offers an array of enhancements and improvements over the previous generation. For example, these new Galaxy Notes are built around a more powerful processing platform, they have numerous camera and video updates, offer support for new Ultra Wide Band wireless technology, and they have deeper Microsoft app integration, among several other new features. Both of the... Read more...
With Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event just a few weeks away, it should come as no surprise that the leaks are starting to ramp up. In today’s case, we’re getting a great look at the new Galaxy Note 20. The Galaxy Note 20 is expected to be smaller than its Galaxy Note 20 Ultra sibling. And as we can see from the render, its display is completely flat (which is a break from what we typically have seen from the Note series in recent years) with small bezels all around. We can also clearly see a cutout for the selfie camera in the center-top of the display, along with a less elaborate camera array on the back. There are three cameras housed within a module that...

Samsung has been the recipient of some criticism over its implementation of a 120Hz refresh rate on its Galaxy S20 smartphones, or more specifically, the seemingly artificial limitations it imposes on enabling the faster setting. The company's upcoming Galaxy Note 20 might be a bit more flexible in that regard, with a rumored refresh rate option that would dynamically change the setting depending on the app that is running. Cranking the dial to 120Hz can make certain content look and feel quicker and smoother. It comes at the expense of battery life, though, and that could be why Samsung decided to block the Galaxy S20 from running at 120Hz at the highest (and native) screen resolution setting....

Samsung this week announced that it is holding an "Unpacked" event on August 5th during which it will likely unveil the Galaxy Note 20 Series, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Watch 3, and possible even the Galaxy Z Fold 2. One of those aforementioned devices is in leaking in full today, and that's the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Following the leak of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in a "copper" finish, Jimmy is Promo has posted a video of what appears to be a preproduction version of the device. Right off the bat, we can see that the smartphone carries the Samsung internal designation SM-N986U and navigating through the user interface appears to be blazing fast (as you'd expect with a flagship Android device)....

Samsung has taken to Twitter to confirm the date for its Unpacked event that will undoubtedly bring new smartphones (and more) for fans to enjoy. The teaser event shows a copper-colored stylus with a bit of liquid dripping off the tip and splattering on a white surface. The only text reads "Power - a new form for a new norm. Unpacked on August 5, 2020." The tweet also carries the hashtag #SamsungEvent. As for what device Samsung may be teasing with the copper-color dripping off the stylus, if we had to bet we'd say it's the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra that leaked at the beginning of the month. The device that turned up in that leaked image, which can be seen above, has what appears to be the same exact... Read more...
We are fast approaching the expected official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 20 series, with Samsung likely to launch the handset in August. It will be at that time when all the questions and speculation are put to rest. That includes whether or not the regular Galaxy Note 20 will have a comparatively lackluster display, as is the newest rumor. Everything we know so far about the Galaxy Note 20 is that it will be every bit a flagship phone, at least as it pertains to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Plus. Fast processing, gobs of RAM, high-end camera performance, and a fast display are all likely to manifest. Same goes for the regular Galaxy Note 20, minus the... Read more...
Some interesting information detailing a couple of Samsung's upcoming smartphones have emerged, courtesy of a new China Compulsory Certification (CCC, or 3C) listing. The listing highlights a couple of model numbers—Samsung SM-F7070 and Samsung SM-N9810—that are believed to be in reference to the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G. We don't get any concrete specifications about the underlying hardware of either handset. However, the certifications offering up some details about the charging capabilities of each handset. According the listing, the Galaxy Note 20 will ship with a 25W charger, while the Galaxy Z Flip G will come bundled with a 15W charger. Curiously missing is an indication... Read more...
Who really knows what the immediate future will bring in terms of new hardware releases, as the Coronavirus pandemic continues to throw a wrinkle into plans. That said, it is still somewhat expected that Samsung will unveil its Galaxy Note 20 this summer—perhaps in early August, if sticking to the same time frame as the Galaxy Note 10. What will it bring to the table? Upgraded specifications are a given, though not necessarily across the board. In particular, rumor has it the Galaxy Note 20 could end up with a smaller battery than Samsung's flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra (though it would still be an improvement over the Galaxy Note 10). The rumor has it roots at Galaxy Club, which claims the... Read more...
