- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is tipped to come with a standard 60Hz refresh rate
- The Galaxy Note 20’s display will be inferior to the Galaxy Note 20+ and Note 20 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is rumoured to launch on August 5th alongside all-new Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G. Details about new Note-series lineup have been doing the rounds of rumour mill for quite some. Adding to that, renowned and often reliable tipster Ice Universe claimed this week that the vanilla Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will have an average display. By average, we mean the phone will feature a flat FHD+ resolution with a standard 60Hz refresh rate instead of a higher QHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The 120Hz QHD+ display is now only being expected on the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra models.

It’s a desperate specification.😑
If that turns out to be true, it’ll a significant step down for Samsung’s premium flagship offerings – given that the whole Galaxy S20 lineup uses 120Hz refresh rate. Additionally, it’s also expected that Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will not come with curved edges. This is to be expected as the Galaxy S20 also comes with a flatter curved display compared to past models. The reason behind downgrading the display on the Galaxy Note 20 to 60Hz could be to push consumers into buying the more premium Galaxy Note 20+ and Note 20 Ultra models.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will reportedly feature 108MP HM1 primary sensor paired with 13MP telephoto lens that will support up to 50x zoom and a 12MP ultra wide-angle lens. The Galaxy Note 20 design is likely to look similar to the Note 10 and sport a 6.7-inch screen. The Galaxy Note 20+, on the other hand, may sport 6.9-inch display. The handsets continue to support the S Pen. They are rumoured to ship with Exynos 992 chipset, One UI 2 atop Android 10, and wireless charging support.
