Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Series Won't Offer 100x Space Zoom

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review AM AH 1 18

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20+ will not offer the 100x ‘Space Zoom’ feature. That feature was included in the Galaxy S20 Ultra, as most of you know, but won’t be included in the Note series.

This information comes from a well-known tipster, Ice Universe. This does not have to mean that a periscope sensor will be scrapped altogether, though, Samsung may keep it.

The Galaxy Note 20 series won’t include 100x Space Zoom from the S20 Ultra

The company obviously isn’t happy with the reception of the 100x Space Zoom feature, or with its performance, which is why it’s opting not to include it in the Galaxy Note 20 series.


Ice Universe also mentioned that the Galaxy Note 20+ will use a 108-megapixel HM1 sensor from the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Samsung is planning to add a new sensor to “assist in focusing and completely solve the focusing problem”.

The Galaxy Note 20 series of devices is expected to arrive in August. Samsung is allegedly planning to announce two phones as part of that series, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20+.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra was also rumored a while back, but the latest information claims that the phone will not launch. Samsung will stick to two Galaxy Note devices this year, it seems.

Those two devices are expected to arrive alongside the Galaxy Fold 2. That will become the company’s third foldable smartphone, and a direct successor to the Galaxy Fold which launched last year.

All three of those devices are expected to include an S Pen stylus. Chances are we’ll get the very same stylus on all three phones, and the same set of software features along with it.

The Galaxy Note 20 series has been leaking for quite some time now. We haven’t really seen a legit leak of the design of the two phones, though. Chances are they will look like a hybrid between the Galaxy Note 10 and S20 series of devices.


Both Galaxy Note 20 devices will include a display camera hole

Both smartphones are expected to sport a display camera hole, and that hole will probably be centered. They will probably include slightly curved displays, similar to the Galaxy S20+.

The Snapdragon 865 will fuel the two devices in the US and China, while the Exynos 990 will probably do it in Europe and India. We’re expecting Samsung to include plenty of RAM in both phones, one rumor even suggested 16GB will be included.

The Galaxy Note 20 is said to sport a fullHD+ 60Hz LTPS display. The Galaxy Note 20+, on the other hand, will include a much more advanced QHD+ 120Hz LTPO display.
