Samsung is now set to release one of its best phones, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. Dubbed as the do-everything phone, fans will surely not be disappointed.
But what are the specs? Today, we will take a look at what Samsung has to offer in the $1,300 gadget.

The Note 20 Ultra has a wider screen measuring at 6.9 inches. It is also taller at 164.8 mm, but thinner at 8.1 mm.
The Note 20 weighs 194 grams while the Note 20 Ultra weighs 208 grams.

Both phones offer excellent display. The default setting is called “Adaptive. If the screen is static, it will use the 60Hz standard. But if you scroll, the screen uses a technology that has 120Hz refresh rate.
What this does is that it helps you save battery power. You also have the choice to stick to 60Hz if you want, making your phone consume less battery.
Both phones have 10MP front camera. The back has a triple camera for both phones, and both have 12MP cameras.
Here are the differences:
- Note 20 – 12MP wide-angle second camera, with image sensor size. The third camera is 64MP telephoto.
- Note 20 Ultra –the second camera is 10MP wide-angle; the third camera is also 12MP.
While it seems like the Note 20 Ultra has less camera power, it does compensate for the low megapixel with its Laser AF Sensor.
Both phones have Hybrid Optic Zoom, super-resolution, digital zoom, and high-resolution image sensor and lens.
The phone series use the new Gorilla Glass Victus. The front and back of the camera using this glass. According to Corning, this version of the Gorilla Glass can protect the phone at drops of 2 meters in height.
That means 6.5 feet drop. This is far better than its predecessor, the Gorilla Glass 6, which can only protect the camera and phone for 1.6 meters or 5.25 feet. The new screen is also twice as scratch-resistant.
The Note 20 Ultra offers a battery capacity of 4,500 mAh. It is a little smaller compared to the basic Note 20, which has 5,000 mAh.
These numbers should not fool you, though. The difference between 500 mAh is not relevant. With this battery life, you can use the phone for an hour of talk, and you will see that it has no significant drain on your battery.
Both models use Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. This processor is extremely fast and reliable. Coupled with the Exynos 990 chipset, you can expect the phone to operate optimally even if you play games with high power requirements.
While both use 64-bit Octa Core, the actual speed measured in GHz may vary based on your carrier and country. The maximum clock speed of the processor is between 2.7 GHz and 3.0 GHz.
Both phones are 5G ready with LTE. The RAM is at 8GB and 256 GB of storage.
There is no doubt about it, the phone is one of a kind—it delivers what Samsung has promised. The thing is, the phone is going to the market at a bad time during COVID-19. At a hefty price tag of $1,300, the phone’s price is justified.
