The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is the ideal mobile
We can’t just stick with one highlight, the whole set of Note 20 features that we find in this new model is remarkable. We will begin to know what strikes us the most as soon as we see it and it is that rear part created with care in glass and metal to transmit premium sensations that corresponds to everything it offers us. In the back we can also see the camera module with three lenses that we will later know in depth, in this same module we see the led flash and one of the integrated microphones.
Its dimensions are 161.6 x 75.2 x 8.3 mm, which means that the thickness of it has increased and also the dimensions due to an increase in screen size. Despite this, it has been possible to keep the weight at bay and the 192 grams is not heavy for a device of this size. The aspect ratio in this model is 20: 9 and we should also talk about the SPen of Note 20 It has a latency of 9ms that improves significantly from the 42ms that the Galaxy Note 10 had, now also its position changes to the left side.
A screen that we do not want another
As the screen expert that Samsung is, he shows us in the Note 20 that its screen with Dynamic AMOLED technology will delight the most demanding. With 6.7 inches and a Full HD + resolution that comes accompanied by 60Hz as the refresh rate. In this model some features are saved for the Note 20 Ultra, but we also enjoy a high speed fingerprint sensor under the screen.
Do everything you want to do
Thanks to the processor Exynos 990 that incorporates this new model we will be able to get everything we want and of course the possibility of buying it in a version with 5G or with LTE is also included. To accompany this processor we have a single option of 8 GB of LPDDR5 type RAM, the fastest and most advanced currently, although without the possibility of expanding the memory with a Micro SD card. We have IP68 protection against water and dust, something that suits us especially well in the summer.
Accompanying all this we have Wi-Fi 6 to have the highest speed also at home, combined with the best range. We can also use two SIM cards at the same time, through the double tray or changing one of them for an eSIM. Of course we have NFC for our mobile payments and added technologies that will surprise us when we talk about One UI.

If in the previous generation with the Galaxy Note 10 the cameras were already an unrivaled option, in this Note 20 they are further improved. Its main lens is 12 Mpx with an f / 1.8 aperture which will be of great help to improve results in dark situations, you also fast with the night mode software. The second lens has as its main objective to capture the largest spaces, the wide angle with 120 degrees of vision goes as far as unattainable in an image with f / 2.2 aperture.
Long distances won’t be a problem, either, thanks to Samsung’s impressive 64-megapixel telephoto lens, a 3x optical zoom lens, and a 30x digital zoom. All lenses with electronic stabilizer, digitally stabilized to work wonders on photos and of course on videos.
On the video side, the jump is also very important, now we have the ability to record up to 8K at 24 fps, which means an unparalleled level of detail and size. Ahead, the camera designed for video calls and selfies is 10 Mpx with f / 2.2 aperture and is located inside the screen in a centered hole that inherits from the Note 10.
Battery and software with surprises
