Galaxy Note 20 render shows off radiant colourway and boxy design amid claims of improved battery life for Samsung's next phablet
Rumour has it that Samsung will be equipping its entry-level Galaxy Note with a 4,000 mAh battery this year. Not only will the Galaxy Note 20 have a significantly larger battery than its predecessor, but it may in fact be the cell from the Galaxy S20.
Apparently on track for a Q3 2020 release, the so-called Galaxy Note 20 series is expected to feature two models, the Note 20 and Note 20 Plus. While Geekbench may have already provided an insight into the latter, we are yet to hear much about the regular Note 20.
However, Galaxy Club claims to have received information about the device's battery capacity. Citing an unnamed source, the Dutch website states that the Note 20 will have a typical capacity of 4,000 mAh. As Samsung fans may be aware, a 4,000 mAh battery is the same capacity that the Galaxy S20 offers, and 500 mAh more than the Note 10.
Interestingly, Galaxy Club states that the Note 20 and Galaxy S20 will actually share the same battery. Assigned the part number EB-BN980ABY, the battery has rated capacity of 3,880 mAh.
If the battery life of the Galaxy S20 is anything to go by, then the Note 20 will be a significant improvement over its predecessor. Battery life was one of our complaints about the Note 10 too, but it seems that Samsung has upped its game in 2020 in this regard.
