- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is tipped to be powered by Snapdragon 865 SoC/ Exynos 990 SoCs, depending on the region
- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G will only be launched in regions where the network connectivity will already be available
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is collecting all the certificates it needs before breaking covers at August 5th launch event. The handsets, namely Samsung Galaxy Note 20, Note 20 Plus, and Note 20 Ultra, have all been spotted in multiple certification agencies so far. Now, the vanilla Samsung Galaxy Note 20 has surfaced on Indonesia’s IMDA certification site, reaffirming that there will be both 4G and 5G models of the phone. The listing (spotted by 91mobiles) reveals 4G variant of the phone with SM-980F/ DS model number where ‘DS’ stands for dual SIM model number and the 5G variant with SM-N981B/ DS model number. These are the same model numbers that were previously spotted on NBTC and FCC respectively.
Most likely, only the regions with 5G connectivity will get the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G model. For other regions, such as India, where the network is yet to make its debut, they’ll likely have to settle for 4G model of the phone. The IMDA certification only reveals that both Samsung Galaxy Note 20 variants will have NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20, as well as the ‘Plus’ and ‘Ultra’ models, are expected to be powered by Snapdragon 865/ Exynos 990 chipsets – depending on the region. It’ll come with a typical Note design that includes a rectangular form factor and the S Pen. The flagships are also expected to feature Infinity-O display with slimmer bezels than before, as many as quad cameras at the back, and in a new Copper colour finish. That’s all we know so far!
In addition to the Galaxy Note 20 series, Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatch. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is also expected to be announced at the event, although the foldable phone may only ship sometime in October.
