As most of you know, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra offers 100x ‘Space Zoom’ with its periscope camera. Well, that same capability won’t be available on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, as the phone will be able to zoom in 50x, no more.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will offer 50x zoom, and probably lose ‘Space Zoom’ branding

This information comes from Ice Universe, a well-known tipster. It also goes hand-in-hand with the information that surfaced not so long ago, which claimed that ‘Space Zoom’ is going away. That rumor came from the same source, by the way.

100x zoom on the Galaxy S20 Ultra was quite gimmicky either way, so not many people will miss it. The quality of the image at 100x was not good at all, which explains this change.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may be the only Galaxy Note 20-branded phone to offer a periscope camera. The Galaxy S20 and S20+ did not offer it, only the ‘Ultra’ model, so the same may happen with the Note 20 series.

We’re still not sure if the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will offer the same periscope camera as its sibling, but regardless, it will be capped at 50x zoom.

Samsung is planning to launch three Galaxy Note 20-branded phones in August. Samsung did not officially confirm the date of the launch, but August 5 has been mentioned in reports.

In any case, Samsung is actually expected to launch five flagship phones during that Unpacked event. The Galaxy Note 20 series will be accompanied by the Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G.

A 108-megapixel main camera will be included on the back of the device

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will almost certainly feature a 108-megapixel main camera on the back. That camera is expected to be improved compared to the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will probably look like a cross between the Galaxy Note 10+ and S20 Ultra in terms of the design. The phone will feature extremely thin bezels, a centered display camera hole, and sharp edges.

The device will include a curved display, though it will be less curved than the Galaxy Note 10+’s, probably. We cannot know for sure at this point.

The phone is expected to include an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner from Qualcomm. It will also sport multiple camera sensors on the back.

The Snapdragon 865+ is rumored to fuel this phone in the US and China. The Exynos 990 / 992 will fuel it in Europe and India, on the other hand. The phone will pack in plenty of RAM and storage, along with Android 10 and Samsung’s custom UI.
