New renders and a video clip of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ have been posted online. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Note 20+ is larger than the regular Galaxy Note 20, and it comes with a curved display. However, it’s hard to ignore just how huge the camera bump on the rear is, which could be a deal-breaker for many.

Just days after renders and a video clip of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 were unveiled we now have renders and a video of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+. Thanks to Pigtou in collaboration with @OnLeaks, the leaked images of the Galaxy Note 20+ offer a proper look at the upcoming smartphone, which is expected to be released in August unless further delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Like the Galaxy Note 20, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ also has the S Pen slot moved from the right-hand side to the left. The apparent measurements for the device are 165 x 77.2 x 7.6 mm, which means it is longer and wider than the regular variant but also slimmer (7.6 mm vs. 8.5 mm). The 6.9-inch display has very narrow bezels, is curved, and it features a punch-hole solution for the selfie camera – so no under-display camera here either.

However, somewhat unfortunately the “standout” design feature for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ is the massive camera bump. According to the source, the housing for the rear-facing camera setup brings the phone’s width to 10.7 mm at that area. It is extremely noticeable, and once it is seen it cannot be unseen. It’s possible such an egregious camera bump may end up being a deal-breaker for some potential Galaxy Note 20+ buyers.
