Samsung Galaxy Note 20 vs Galaxy Note 20 Ultra: these are the differences

The specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are now on the street and those of the Galaxy Note 20 are now being added. It seems that Samsung has saved a lot on this variant. We list the possible differences.

Differences Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The  Samsung Galaxy Note 20  and  Note 20 Ultra will be on August 5,  but we will not hear and see much news there. All specifications and images of the Ultra variant were leaked yesterday. Now, through WinFuture, we ‘re also getting to see all of the Note 20’s specs and graphics, and it looks like Samsung is slimming the smaller variant in terms of specs this year.

That is surprising because until now the two Note variants did not differ much from each other. In addition, Samsung released a Lite version of the Galaxy Note 10 last year to also provide that target group with a Note with an S Pen. The upcoming Galaxy Note 20 now seems to be moving more towards that Lite version in terms of specifications.Samsung Galaxy Note 20 vs Galaxy Note 20 Ultra differences

As you can see, the differences between them are quite significant. For example, Note 20 has a refresh rate of 60 Hz and no curved screen edges. The fingerprint scanner is incorporated in the screen. There are also large differences in the field of memory. The Note 20 will initially only come with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

In terms of cameras, we see that the Note 20 has a 12 MP main camera, as opposed to the 108 MP camera on the Ultra. The Galaxy Note 20 also has to do without a periscope zoom lens and laser autofocus. The S Pen of the Galaxy Note 20 reacts a lot slower at 26 milliseconds than the S Pen that comes with the Ultra.

Both phones can stream games via Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft’s xCloud service. That is Microsoft’s subscription service in which you can play a list of selected games via a monthly fee. In addition, both come with support for the wireless version of the DeX software.

The price?

Now that it looks like the Note 20 is a lot less well-endowed in terms of specs, the price might be a lot lower, too. The entry-level model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 received a suggested retail price of 949 euros last year. But this device did have a glass housing and the same screen as that of the Galaxy S10 series.

Unfortunately, details about pricing have not yet been leaked and we have to wait until August 5th. Then both phones and four more new products will be launched. Which Note 20 are you looking forward to the most? Let us know in the comments at the bottom of this article.
