What is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20?
Samsung has two flagship lines of smartphone: Galaxy S and Galaxy Note.
The Galaxy S phones are arguably the ones with the most mainstream appeal – and come out in spring each year.
And the Galaxy Note phones are typically more powerful and feature-packed, aimed at buyers with more cash to burn.
These Galaxy Note devices tend to launch around the same time as Apple’s iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 release date
Samsung typically launches its Galaxy Note phones in August or September.
This year, the big reveal event looks set for August 5.
But it’s possible (and likely) that the phone won’t be in stores from day one.
Instead, you may have to wait a few weeks before you can actually get your hands on one.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 news and rumours
We’ve already got a good look at what the new Samsung phone will look like.
A bunch of alleged images have already leaked out, showing off a large device with a triple camera and stylus.
But we’ve even seen “official” shots that were seemingly accidentally published by Samsung on its own website ahead of time.
It looks like a fairly standard Note device, with an enormous squared-off body.
We’re expecting the new phone to feature Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 865 chip – the same one inside the Galaxy S20.
However, we’ll probably see Samsung’s similarly nippy Exynos chips landing in the European version of the device.
The handset is very likely to support super-fast 5G internet – just like the Galaxy S20 earlier this year.
And we’ll probably see a larger “Ultra” model launching alongside the new Note 20.
Sadly, details on exact specs or pricing remain light.
But we’ll hear much more at Samsung’s virtual August 5 event.
