Samsung’s Note 20 series is finally here, courtesy of Samsung’s 5 August Unpacked stream. After months of rumours and leaks, the Korean tech giant unveiled two new phablets – the Note 20 and the
Note 20 Ultra – amid a myriad of other new Galaxy wares.
Despite initial speculation around three flavours of Note 20, Samsung actually kept things simple(r) and produced just two at Unpacked; the aforementioned Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra.
The Note 20 comes in both 4G and 5G variants, sports a smaller, lower-resolution, flat display, less RAM and a smaller battery compared to the Ultra. The Note 20 Ultra opts for a 6.9in curved display with a higher WQHD+ resolution and an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate.
The Ultra also boasts a beefier camera setup – complete with a 108Mp main sensor and new laser focussing system, as well as superior 9ms latency when using that all-important S Pen.
