One day after Samsung announced a Galaxy Unpacked event for 5 August, to presumably announce the Galaxy Note 20 series and other hardware, a brief hands-on video of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra model has appeared online.
This leaked video seems to follow a still, presumably from the footage, that leaked yesterday. It seems to part of a predictable drip, drip, drip pattern of leaks, where we get bits of information followed by several more leaks that give us a better or clearer idea of what to expect. YouTube channel Jimmy Is Promoalso the source of the leaked still – shared the video, which is exactly 83 seconds in length, on 8 July.
The clip doesn’t confirm whether the model will have a 120Hz display. But we can see the S Pen cradle is on the left side of the phone, and the buttons switched sides, too. The camera bump is larger which shouldn’t come as a surprise since phones are increasingly moving to larger, better-quality image sensors. The video also demos new “pointer” capabilities, because a Note always means new gimmicks.
The Galaxy Note 20 series will be a premium range separate from the Galaxy 20 series. It will reportedly feature a triple rear camera array with a periscope-style lens and perhaps a 3D ToF sensor or laser autofocus. It might also include the Snapdragon 865, 5G by default, a 120Hz refresh rate display option, and, obviously, an upgraded S-Pen. At least two models – a smaller Galaxy Note 20, and a larger Note 20 Ultra – could debut in August.
