Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Plus Mockups Show a New Camera Design; Also Got Listed on 3C

The online vendor Pigtou, in collaboration with the reputable leaker @Onleaks, has given us a preview of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20+. If our readers recall, the same blog previously published the alleged mockups for the base Note 20. Compared to the standard edition, the CAD renders for the Galaxy Note 20+ reveal a larger form factor and a fresh camera design.

As per the source, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Plus will have the following dimensions: 165mm x 77.2mm x 7.6mm. Unlike the Note 20, the Note 20+ isn’t bigger or taller than its predecessor.

The front and rear-facing panels curve ever-so-slightly around the edges, though the so-called ‘2.5D’ effect, isn’t as pronounced as it is in most 2020 designs. The almost flat screen has grown from 6.8 inches to 6.87 inches with this iteration – more on that in a few.


The bezels that border the display have shrunk a little, but it’s not a significant revision. You probably won’t be able to tell the Note 10+ and Note 20+ apart if presented with a side-by-side comparison. The Note 20+ doesn’t use the much-speculated ‘under-the-display’ technology either. Samsung is seemingly recycling the centered punch-hole design.


The camera setup, however, has been revamped. It’s more symmetrical and aesthetic. Three of the cameras (including the periscope module) are stacked on top of each other and bound within silver rings. The fourth camera lies inconspicuously, flanking the three lenses, under an LED flash. The entire ensemble lives inside rectangle-shaped housing with soft corners. The bump protrudes out a fair bit, increasing the thickness up to 10.7mm.


The rear shell, though much more minimalistic than last year’s ‘Aura’ designs, is still reflective, glossy, and painted in polished silver and deep black. Samsung has stripped the dedicated button for summoning the ‘Bixby’ assistant and positioned the volume rockers and the power button on the left side of the build.

In related news, the Note 20+ has been signed off by the 3C certification authority under the model number SM-N9860 – which speculation suggests is the Chinese variant of the upcoming flagship. The screen size hasn’t been stretched much, but the display now delivers a 3096x1444 resolution at a 120Hz refresh rate. The duo is expected to go official in August carrying flagship Samsung Prices, likely through a virtual launch event.
