Meet Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
All eyes are peeled to Samsung's latest 2020 flagship, which is turning out to be the ultimate flagship. Available in Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black and Mystic White, the Note 20 Ultra makes a strong case for anyone looking to buy a no-compromise flagship. What makes it so special? Let's find out.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with a 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED QHD+ curved display with 120Hz refresh rate. It is the first phone to come with Corning's all-new Gorilla Glass Victus. The cameras on the phone are hard to miss.
The massive camera bump on the back houses a 108-megapixel primary sensor and 50x Space Zoom paired with 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens. The handset supports 8K video recording, which is just one of many features that make the cameras on the phone great. On the front, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra features a 10MP punch-hole camera with dual-pixel autofocus.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra packs a 4,500mAh battery with fast charging, fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, the powerful Snapdragon 865+ chipset and 12GB RAM for that full-day premium user-experience. The handset runs One UI 2.1 based on Android 10.
What truly sets the Galaxy Note-line apart is the S Pen, which in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is refined and upgraded for better usability. For instance, there's something called "Anywhere actions" that turn the S-Pen into sort of a wand to support air gestures to remotely control the phone. Samsung has improved latency on the S-Pen.
Other notable features include IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, Wi-Fi 6 support, AKG-tuned stereo speakers. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is aesthetically pleasing and a powerful beast. The textured back should help conceal those smudges.
How these features fair in the real-world remains to be known until our review of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Stay tuned.
