Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra
These days it's quite rare for a new phone to arrive without us already knowing everything there is to know about it via numerous leaks.
That’s true about the new Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra which were revealed in all their glory yesterday, leaving very little unknown about the new phones which Samsung officially took the wraps off today.
If you’re a Samsung convert then this is possibly the device you’ve been waiting for. You do get quite a lot for your money, but it’s also an eye-watering amount of money.
Both the Galaxy Note20 and the Note20 Ultra are 5G capable, run Android 10, and come with the signature 'S Pen' stylus, which this time around has been updated to be more precise and mimic a real pen and paper.
The Note20 has a 6.7in flat FHD+ Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O Display at 2400x1080 (393 ppi). It’s HDR10+ certified.
It's powered by a 64-bit Octa-Core Processor with 8GB of RAM and a choice of 128 or 256GB storage.
The front camera is a 10MP Dual Pixel AF affair, while the rear arrangement offers a 12MP wide-angle lens, 64MP telephone lens, and 12MP ultra wide.
