The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to be launched in mid-August this year, based on a similar timeline of other Samsung phones launched in August. However, with the ongoing pandemic, we might experience a slight delay due to production and stock issues.
This device will be launched in the market, at a similar time when the iPhone 12 is speculated to hit the market as well. Hence, these two phones will prove to be a stiff competition to each other.
This phone series will have two models:
- The original Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 20+.
How much will it be priced?
This model of Samsung is bound to come in a slightly expensive range owing to all the brilliant features and the current trend of smartphone price hikes in the market.

Hence, we are guessing the company will adopt the same trend and these phones will be priced at nothing less than $1000.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is bound to have an impressive camera. Sources say that Note 12 will most likely have the basic usual structural design. This is inclusive of the phone’s generic ports and the slot for the trademarked slot for the S-Pen of Samsung. This implies that the Note 20 series will incorporate a lot of similar characteristics from the Galaxy S20 series’.
These likely include the triple-lens configuration in the base and the Galaxy s20’s feature of ultra-quad lens setup, finished by a 108 MP lens. It is an obvious fact that these will undergo improvement. It is believed that this series will be devoid of the Space zoom telephoto lens. However, it should ideally employ a 64 MP sensor, similar to the telephoto lens of Galaxy S20 Plus.
It is alleged that for the Galaxy Note 20 Plus we will be seeing a 108MP main sensor, a 13MP telephoto lens, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera. It will also be equipped with a laser focus sensor to sharpen the focus angles of the image.
The telephoto lens of these phones is believed to house an ideal capability of 50x zoom along with a periscope-style design.

The Samsung franchise is expected to spice up this series with in-screen, ultrasonic fingerprint sensors that will add to both the design and security.
Recently, Samsung declared its new venture in the production of 7nm and 6nm smaller sized mobile processors, which will work the best for a 5G connection.

One thing we know for sure is that the Note 20 series will be equipped with 5G connectivity.
The storage is expected to be a 125 GB in-built storage. This is a drawback as the Note 10 had storage of 256 GB, but this model is likely to be employed with a microSD slot as well. It is speculated that Samsung’s next-generation eUFS 3.1 storage will make its entry through the Note 20 models.
