Here’s a closer look at Samsung's radical new Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
The best look we've had at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra yet and it looks pretty great. Samsung is going to launch this smartphone on August 5 at the Galaxy Unpacked event.
Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event is coming soon, August 5 to be precise, and the company is going to unveil a host of new smartphones and devices this time including the new Galaxy Note 20 series, the Galaxy Fold 2 and the Z Flip 5G.
The most exciting smartphone of that lot is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and thanks to YouTuber Jimmy is Promo, we've gotten our best look at the device so far. The video shared by Jimmy is Promo is the first hands-on video with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and it gives some insight into the new design.
A Russian website accidentally posted an image of the Note 20 Ultra last week and the design elements spotted on the YouTube video fall in line with it. These include super-thin bezels on top and the bottom, a smaller punch-hole for the front camera and an enhanced camera array from what we've seen on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra's 108MP-setup. This time there is a dedicated focus sensor.
As per the video, the rear camera array looks massive and the bump sticks out of the chassis even more than what it did on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. This essentially means you can barely keep this smartphone on a flat surface and will in all probabilities be prone to sliding off slick surfaces given the minimal points of contact across the phone and the huge bump.
Besides this, the video shows that Samsung has moved the S Pen and the loudspeaker to the left of the phone.
The Note 20 Ultra is going to ship with Android 10 and though Android 11 launch is just around the corner, Samsung might bring in that update much later. It is also going to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ under the hood, 45W charging support, upgrade biometrics etc.
