We’re exactly two weeks away from Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event and the devices can’t stop leaking. We already know there will be five devices announced, though the exact devices are still up for debate. The Galaxy Note 20 series will most definitely be at the event and today we’re getting a closer look at one of them.
Yesterday, we got a full look at the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and its full specifications. We had already seen a hands-on video and an official render straight from Samsung’s website. While we know a lot about the Ultra, the smaller Galaxy Note 20 has been more mysterious. We got out first look at it last week and today we’re finally filling in a lot of blanks.
The smaller Galaxy Note 20 has a flat 6.7-inch FHD display and it sticks with a 60Hz refresh rate rather than 120Hz. The processor in Europe will be the Exynos 990 and it will be accompanied by 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4,300mAh battery. The 256GB will be the only storage option.
In terms of cameras, we’re looking at a 12MP primary, 12MP wide-angle, and 64MP telephoto. The Galaxy Note 20 has a similar-looking triple-camera stack as the Ultra, but it’s much smaller. The S Pen on the smaller model will have 9ms response time, whereas the Ultra S Pen has 26ms.
One last important tidbit is the build materials. While the smaller Note 20 will still have a metal frame, the back cover may actually be plastic instead of Gorilla Glass 7 like the Ultra. People hear “plastic” and automatically assume the worst, but it could be a nice, high-quality, and durable plastic. We will have to wait and see.
