The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Note 20 are two new devices Samsung unveiled just this week. In case you are yet to get the full details about these new Notes, then SpecsPriceBuy got you covered. In this post, we shall be looking at the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra full specification, price, and availability. You can also check out the Galaxy Note 20 details and compare them with this very one.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Features
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is built on the Galaxy S20 Ultra platform. It comes with the same screen, a 6.0-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with 1440p+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. You still need to set the rendering resolution to 1080p+ to get the 120 Hz mode, however.
The S Pen and the supporting Wacom layer on the screen have been updated to achieve 9 ms latency. Samsung says that at this point the experience is very much like writing on paper. Notes you take can be converted to Microsoft Office formats and synced with your other devices via Samsung Notes.
The S Pen can also be used for navigation with five new anywhere actions. By “drawing” shapes in the air (that is without being anywhere close to the screen), you could go Back, open Recent apps, go Home, and more.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is also the first mobile device to have its display protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. It resist scratches better and can survive drops from 2 meters on a hard surface. There is an ultrasonic fingerprint reader embedded in the display along with a 10 MP selfie camera.
The rear camera still features the large 108 MP main sensor. It produces 12 MP photos with binning, records 8K videos at 24 fps with a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio (this ratio is also available for 1080p at 120 fps videos). There is optical stabilization but not Dual Pixel autofocus. However, the Phase Detection autofocus is now augmented with Laser AF (the 3D ToF sensor has been axed).
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra still boasts a periscope lens with 5x optical magnification as opposed to 4x. There is now a 12MP sensor sitting behind it, replacing the 48MP sensor of the S20 Ultra. The bet here is that the longer zoom and brighter f/3.0 aperture will make up for the smaller 1.0 µm pixels (the 48 MP sensor had 1.6 µm pixels in its binned 12MP mode and was behind an f/3.5 aperture). Space Zoom is limited to 50x, but that’s not a huge issue as those magnification ratios are not very practical (especially not 100x).
The 120° ultra-wide-angle camera maintains its 12 MP sensor with 1.0 µm pixels and f/2.2 aperture.
The chipset divide remains, with a partial upgrade. Much of the world will get the Snapdragon 865+ chipset, which is 10% faster than the 865 found inside the S20 phones. However, Europe and India are stuck with the old Exynos 990 rather than an upgraded version of the chip.
As far as Microsoft is concerned, games will run on its xCloud service – the Note 20 duo are the first phones with special optimizations baked into their software. There will be over 100 Xbox titles available in mid-September with the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The screen’s 240 Hz touch sampling rate matches dedicated gaming phones.
The battery has been increased up to 4500mAh, which is 200mAh more than the Note10+ but 500mAh less than the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The phone is bundled with a 25 W charger, which is the fastest supported (you can’t use a 45W charger like with the S20 Ultra). The Note20 Ultra also supports 15W fast wireless charging and 9W reverse wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra price starts at $1,300/€1,266/£1,180 for the model with 256GB of storage. There is a 512GB option as well.
