Samsung is expected to launch its Galaxy Note 20 series as early as August this year. According to leaks and rumours from multiple sources, the Korean tech giant could unveil the Galaxy Note 20 on August 5, 2020, along with the Galaxy Fold 2. Considering the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the launch could happen at an online event.
Every year, Samsung launches its flagship S-series lineup towards the start of the year and follows it up with a stylus-packing flagship Note device. The Galaxy Note 20 will probably refine the Galaxy S20 lineup experience and cost a bit extra. Here is everything we know about the upcoming Note lineup.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20: Pricing
Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 10 was launched at Rs 69,999 in India and the bigger Galaxy Note 10 Plus was launched for a starting price of Rs 79,999. Since the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 lineup will pack better specifications, we expect the Galaxy Note 20 to be priced around Rs 74,999 and the bigger Galaxy Note 20 Plus to start at Rs 84,999.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20: Cameras
This year, it is expected that Samsung will launch a total of two Galaxy Note 20 devices— Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Plus. According to tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy Note 20 Plus will feature the 108MP primary camera, same as the Galaxy S20 Ultra, along with a 12MP ultrawide-angle lens and a 13MP zoom lens with 50x digital and 5x optical zoom.
The Note 20 Plus is also said to have laser focus sensor as well. It is highly unlikely that the Galaxy Note 20 will have the 108MP camera but feature the same camera specifications as the one featured on the Galaxy S20.
