Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 is set to arrive later this year. Samsung’s next-gen phablet will reportedly ship with a 108-megapixel shooter and an improved ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. The entry-level Phone will not ship with a 120Hz display.

Galaxy Note 20 Features
Now Samsung, in stark contrast to Apple, seemingly doesn’t do much of anything to keep product details from leaking out. As a result, we typically know everything there is to know about a new Samsung product weeks, if not months, ahead of time. With that said, we’ve already seen a number of leaks surface over the past few weeks.
As per speculations, the phone will have 120Hz refresh rate tech that works across the board in different apps and technologies: phones with 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rates right now usually offer different speeds depending on what app you’re in, or if you’re watching video, so the final viewing experience isn’t always very consistent.
Finally, this could just refer to the auto-mode that many phones with different display rates have, and these modes detect what you’re doing on the device and pick a corresponding refresh rate to match. And sometimes the detection can be a bit off, and therefore will give you a non-ideal refresh rate, so possibly the Samsung Phone will have better auto-detection.
As for other details, Phone will boast a Snapdragon 865 chipset, 16GB of RAM, and a next-gen ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. While Samsung’s first ultrasonic fingerprint sensor left much to be desired, we can expect to see some significant performance and reliability improvements thanks to a larger sensor.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the punch-hole camera will remain where it is and the device will likely ship with a 108-megapixel camera on the rear.
Performance-wise, benchmarks for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20+ leaked out early last month. As we noted at the time, the Note 20+ “will trounce most other Android headsets but may still pale in comparison to the benchmark scores for Apple’s still unreleased A14 processor which will be main to power the iPhone 12.”
