The presentation of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will occur next August 5 in a new Unpacked event that, as usual, we will follow live to tell you all the news of the new top-of-the-range terminals of the South Korean giant.
We still do not have official information on its specifications, but the leaks that have been occurring in recent weeks have allowed us break down its design and its components, to such an extent that today we know, thanks to these unofficial sources, almost all the details of the Galaxy Note 20 and its “Ultra” version.
In terms of design, we do not expect major changes beyond what we told you a few days ago in this article, where we saw the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra versus the Galaxy Note 10+. If we talk about its specifications we have one of lime and another of sand, since according to a new leak Samsung plans to reuse Exynos 990 SoC in the international version of both smartphones, instead of making the jump to the rumored Exynos 992.
Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with Snapdragon 865+ SoC and Exynos 990
This is how the different versions that Samsung will commercialize would be configured, in theory. In case someone is lost, I explain, the South Korean giant uses Snapdragon SoCs in versions marketed in certain countries, like the United States and China, and adopts its SoCs Exynos, the international versions that it distributes in most countries of the world.
When the first leaks emerged that pointed to a SoC Exynos 992 The conclusions we were able to draw were very positive, as everything seemed to indicate that it was an improved version of the Exynos 990 SoC that would be able to offer superior performance, higher energy efficiency and much more adjusted working temperatures.
Unfortunately, no reference to that SoC was found in the OneUI 2.5 customization layer firmware used by Samsung, so, except for last-minute surprise, the South Korean company will almost certainly use the Exynos 990 in its next two top-of-the-range smartphones aimed at the international market, while the version for China, the United States and other specific markets will come with the Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
Performance and temperature tests of the Exynos 990 used in the Galaxy S20 confirmed that was not up to the Snapdragon 865, Bad news for buyers of the international version of the terminal that, if everything goes according to plan, will be repeated with the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
