The Galaxy Note 20 phones are less than three months away from launch at this point, and the rumor mill now grinds faster. By most indications, the phones will be an incremental upgrade on the S20 series, but one touted change is expected to significantly improve the user experience.

The Galaxy Note 20 phones are barely three months away from launch at this point, and more information has begun to surface. It was revealed yesterday that the phones will offer slightly larger displays than their predecessors, and the hypothetical "Note 20 Ultra" would, in fact, be the Galaxy Fold 2. Today, a new leak has now dropped even more information on the phones.

According to the source, Android Authority citing an interview with Ross Young of Digital Chain Consultants, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Plus will come equipped with up to 16 GB of RAM. That's no surprise, as the top-spec S20 Ultra already has that much RAM. Also, the phones will see an increase in capacity relative to the Note 10 series. Young expects the batteries on the two phones to be in the range of 4000 mAh to 5000 mAh. 

The more interesting piece of information, however, touts Samsung to utilize a new fingerprint reader. Samsung is billed to use Qualcomm’s second-gen 3D Sonic Max fingerprint reader on the Note 20 phones. The S10, Note 10, and S20 lineups all used the same fingerprint reader. Those readers are, perhaps, the biggest weaknesses of the phones, as they're said to be consistently less reliable than what the competition offers. 

Supposedly, the second-gen sensor will be 17 times larger than the first-gen units and will offer even better unlocking speeds. That would be a welcome change to expectant fans.

Lastly, the Note 20 phones are expected to keep the selfie camera within a centered hole punch, like on the Note 10 and S20 series.
