Apart from the pricing, nearly everything about these new flagship devices has already leaked online. As per the newly surfaced image, users can pre-order the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra from August 6 to 19.
Galaxy Note 20 series pre-order promo includes free Galaxy Buds+/Buds Live
As mentioned in previous leaks, the devices will go on sale starting August 20. For pre-orders, Samsung will offer an e-voucher to purchase the all-new Galaxy Buds Live or the Galaxy Buds+. We're guessing that only the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will get the new Galaxy Buds Live. Whereas the Galaxy Note 20 could settle for the Galaxy Buds+.
After experiencing it over the last couple of years, it's evident that the new earbuds are expected to come for free or at a massive discount with the pre-order of a new flagship Galaxy smartphone. Coming to the pricing of the Galaxy Buds Live, these might retail for IDR 2,599,000 (approx. $179) in Indonesia.
Consumers can also spot the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones in Mystic Green and Mystic Bronze color options. In Europe, the 4G and 5G variants of the Galaxy Note 20 with 256GB of storage will reportedly cost €999 and €1,099 respectively.
Speaking of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, it comes only in the 5G variant and starts from €1,349. Additionally, the company also seems to be making a lot of cutbacks with the standard Galaxy Note 20. Based on the leaks, the Galaxy Note 20 will come with a 1080p display and a polycarbonate body.
Samsung to unveil 5 new devices at Galaxy Unpacked 2020
The Snapdragon 865-powered Galaxy Note 20 will be limited to the US, China, and South Korea. Samsung will launch these new flagships with the Exynos 990 SoC in other regions including Europe and India.
However, the leaks suggest the Exynos 990 SoC inside the Galaxy Note 20 is better optimized to offer peak performance for a longer duration, and it is not the same one offered with the Galaxy S20 lineup. Also, the S Pen will be getting a bunch of new features besides the 9ms response time.
With such low latency, it will offer a "Real Feel" experience similar to using a pen on paper. Moreover, Samsung's recent teaser confirmed a total of five new devices will be unveiled on August 5. Besides the Galaxy Note 20 series, the company will also announce the Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Z Fold 2, and Galaxy Buds Live.
