We’re less than a week out from the announcement of Samsung’s latest mega phone; the Galaxy Note 20, and rumours suggest this years’ offering could put the phone in discussion for the best Android device ever made.
The Galaxy Note 20 is set to launch on August 6th, 2020 at 12am AEST, at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked Event. The event will take place virtually this time round, with Samsung encouraging media and fans around the globe to join the online experience to get a first-hand look at the companies latest hardware .
The event will be streamed live, with the Korean tech giant expected to unveil a range of exciting new tech, including a potential successor to the first generation Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Watch 3, alongside the centerpiece of the event; the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
In anticipation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 launching next week, we’ve rounded up the key features we expect to see from this years' device.
At a glance: Rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 20 features
- Two models (Samsung Galaxy Note 20 & Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra)
- 5G connectivity
- Triple-lens camera setup (Potential 108-megapixel sensor)
- 120Hz refresh rate
- Enhanced S Pen that includes a virtual pointer
Two of a kind
Expect two versions of the Note 20 to be announced at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Event; a ‘smaller’ Note 20 with a screen of 6.5-inches, and the more premium (and of course larger) Note 20 Ultra that could potentially feature a 7-inch screen.
Based on leaked images which surfaced on Samsung’s Russian website in early July, the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will have a similar design to the Galaxy S20, although as expected, with an additional holster for Samsung’s trademark S Pen. Both devices are expected to include Samsung's Infinity-O display.
Release Date & Pricing
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will be unveiled on-stage at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on August 6. In the days following the Event, the Galaxy Note 20 should become available for pre-sale, with orders to be dispatched in late August or early September (the exact date is still unknown).
While pricing is also up in the air, the Note series has never been considered a cheap purchase and it’s safe to assume pricing for the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, will likely be similar to last years’ model which could see the Note 20 come it at around $1499 (AUD) and $1699 (AUD) for the Note 20 Ultra.
