Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will reportedly feature a 120Hz QHD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC, and more
Much like the Galaxy S20 series, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 20 line of phones will feature three devices. We now have our first look at the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra thanks to seasoned leaker Ice Universe. Prima facie, it looks like the Galaxy Note 10+ with its centrally-placed hole-punch selfie camera and curved edges. The Tweet also tells us a little about the phone's display and hardware.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will allegedly come with Qualcomm's yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC. Although the chip isn't officially out yet, it has been mentioned a few times in recent leaks, and even showed up on AnTuTu. The aforementioned SoC will likely be restricted to some regions, as Samsung is reportedly working on a 5nm refresh of the Exynos 990 called the Exynos 992. Qualcomm's 2020 flagships convincingly outperform everything Samsung has to offer. It would be ideal if Samsung ditched its in-house silicon for the Snapdragon 865+, but that is unlikely to happen.
Furthermore, the Galaxy Note 20's display will also be able to push 120Hz at QHD+ resolution, something that the Galaxy S20 series couldn't. The phone will also come with a more power-efficient LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display. As is the case with every Samsung flagship, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will also come with some new camera functions. Since this is a Galaxy Note device, we'll get some new S-Pen features as well. Samsung is expected to unveil the phones in August, so we won't have to wait too long to find out more about them.
