If you want to consider the upcoming Galaxy Note 20, you should carefully consider the choice between the cheaper model and the Plus version this time. The differences between the two versions will be bigger this year than ever, because the normal Note 20 in particular will be given a really thick downgrade. You will not only feel this on the display, probably now also on the back.
Galaxy Note 20: plastic back, AMOLED display with 60 Hertz
The Galaxy Note 20 is already jokingly referred to as Note 20 Lite by all the leaks and apparently they are closer to the truth than some supposed fact about the upcoming hardware. So the normal Note 20 should be equipped with a 60 Hertz display. No 90 Hz and very far away from 120 Hz. That certainly doesn’t correspond to the idea of a new luxury class. In addition, the AMOLED display should be flat and not get Samsung’s typical edge curves, although we would not now call this an absolute downgrade
But it will probably be a lot worse on the back, as Winfuture and the German Leaker Roland Quandt report. The Galaxy Note 20 should have a plastic back and even the display glass is no longer Gorilla Glass 7, as with the Note 20+. For the “smaller” version of an absolute upper class this would of course be a significant saving in the components. That should also be clearly reflected in the price, otherwise Samsung might even shoot itself in the knee here. In both versions, the Galaxy Note 10 we tested relies on stable gorilla glass on the front and back.
After all, the suspected triple camera should remain on the back and the Samsung Exynos processor from the Note 20+ will also do its job in the Galaxy Note 20. There are probably savings in storage sizes. It remains to be seen how these will look exactly. Here the rumors range from 64 GB of internal storage to 256 GB. The RAM is 6 to 8 GB RAM. There will probably be different combinations here. So it will be interesting to see what the South Korean manufacturer has in store for us at its upcoming unpacked event.
