Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Featured in Mystic Green, New Renders Reveal Some Unexpected Downgrades

Yesterday we saw the first set of complete renders for the Samsung Note 20 Ultra, in a new Mystic green color. A German blog published the image previews of the standard Samsung Galaxy Note 20 today — not to mention a replete specification sheet to go with it. Here’s the scoop.

Unlike the curved, wrap-around screen the ‘Ultra’ edition features, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 has a far more straightforward flat display. It’s a 6.7” SuperAMOLED panel that delivers an FHD+ resolution at a standard 60Hz refresh rate.

Samsung has punched it in the middle, but this iteration of the ‘Infinity-O’ design has a more conspicuous hole-punch. The bezel profile surrounding the AMOLED panel is narrow and modern — as you’d expect from a flagship. Inherited from the S20, Note 20 also has an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint reader.

What’s unexpected is that (in addition to the 60Hz screen) the Note 20 by Samsung doesn’t have a glass sandwich build. Instead, the speculation goes, it has a polycarbonate rear-shell and a metal chassis. The material of choice aside, it’s painted in the same Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black aesthetic as its ‘Ultra’ counterpart. You get a clean chamfered back, Samsung’s logo on the lower half, and a squarish camera housing with three lenses on the top-left at flagship Samsung mobile price.

The triple camera array of Samsung note 20 features a 12MP f/1.8 sensor primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a 64MP telephoto sensor that affords the camera up to 3x optical lossless and as much 30x hybrid ‘Space Zoom.’ The 10MP front-facing camera is shared between the two variants.

The European version is Exynos-990-powered, paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage. The battery has a 4,300 mAh capacity, and the supporting fast charge can power up your device from 0 to 30% in only 30 minutes. Another highlight of this year’s Note series is the speculated ‘cloud gaming,’ which Samsung brings to you in collaboration with Microsoft. The pricing details are unknown yet, but the duo is scheduled for release on August 5 at the ‘Galaxy Unpacked’ event.
