Samsung is expected to announce the all-new Galaxy Note 20 series at the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. As per the leaks, the company will reveal three smartphones in its Galaxy Note lineup this year. Along with the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus, Samsung will also launch the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
We have already seen several leaks about the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus smartphones. As of now, there isn't much information available about the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. However, it has now been spotted on an Indonesian carrier's certification website confirming its name.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra certification confirms its name
According to the listing, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with the model number SM-985F. Previously, a few leaks mentioned the SM-985F to be launched as the Galaxy Note 20 Plus. Now, we can sort of unofficially confirm that the SM-985F is Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
This will be the first time Samsung will introduce three Galaxy Note smartphones. As seen with the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will be the top-spec variant with all the bells and whistles you can expect from a Samsung's premium flagship. The SM-N985F was recently certified by the FCC, which confirms it is a 4G variant.
An earlier leak hinted the company will launch the SM-N985F with no 5G support in Europe. Just like earlier, Samsung will launch its flagship Galaxy smartphones with an Exynos chipset in Europe and India. Most likely, the company will be using the Exynos 990 SoC.
Samsung might only launch the 4G variant in Europe
Compared to the 5G variant, the 4G variant should be costing a bit less. Still, we have to take this information with a pinch of salt, as there is no official confirmation yet. Samsung is said to be expecting lower demand for the Galaxy Note 20 series amid the ongoing pandemic. A recent South Korean report also suggests these new smartphones could be priced a bit lower than their predecessors.
The leaked Galaxy Note 20 renders in the "Mystic Bronze" color have already given us the first look at their design. For the first time, we will also be seeing a periscope zoom camera on the Galaxy Note lineup. All three variants might sport a triple camera setup on the rear. Obviously, the company will be using different sensors on each device.
Moreover, the S Pen could also get new features like the leaked Pointer feature. It allows the user to navigate through the UI by moving the S Pen in the air. Samsung is also expected to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Fold 2, and Galaxy Tab S7 during the same event.
