The new Note 20 smartphones will be available from August 21.

Rumor has it that Samsung will introduce two new Note models, as it did last year. As with the Galaxy smartphones, the two Note variants will have the shortened year 20 in their name: Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

A Greek blogger recently reported that the prices for the new Note generation with 1249 and 1499 euros (Galaxy Note 10+) are significantly higher than the previous versions. Even if the local prices could be a bit lower due to a lower VAT at 1199 and 1449 euros, the Note 20 Ultra would be about 250 euros more expensive than the Note 10+ 5G.

According to unconfirmed information, the new Note 20 models should be based on the S20 variants in terms of display and camera. The standard model therefore has a 6.7-inch OLED screen, while the Ultra variant is equipped with a 6.9-inch display.

The 108-megapixel sensor developed by Samsung is likely to be used in the Ultra model, while the standard version probably has a 64-megapixel sensor. It remains to be seen whether Samsung can improve the performance of the sensors. In the DxOMark test, at least the 108 megapixel model was not convincing.
