The new Galaxy Note does not have much difference in appearance compared to the previous version. The machine mainly upgraded the camera, added air gestures on the S Pen and more powerful configuration.
The new Galaxy Note does not possess a breakthrough design, but the product has a good finish, the feeling of holding hands better than its predecessor.
On August 5, Samsung introduced a series of products at the Unpacked 2020 event.
The focus of this event is the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. This is considered the main product of Samsung, will compete with high-end models from Apple, Huawei or Google in the second half of 2020.
Not too surprisingly, this year’s Galaxy Note line inherits many technologies from the Galaxy S20. However, the Korean technology giant has equipped many new features to help the Galaxy Note 20 optimize the user experience.
True to the previous leaked information, Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra have screens of 6.7 inches and 6.9 inches, respectively. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra’s curved screen offers a more comfortable touch feel than the flat screen on the Galaxy Note 20.
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra screen has a refresh rate of 120 Hz like on the Galaxy S20. While the Galaxy Note 20 only has a 60 Hz display. This is really a minus point of Note 20 because other smartphones like Realme 6 Pro or Oppo Reno 4 Pro have a 90 Hz screen.
Both are equipped with perforated Infinity-O screens to position the selfie camera. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a smaller punch hole than the Galaxy Note 20.
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is suitable for male users because the corners are square. While, Galaxy Note 20 has a slight curvature at the four corners. Galaxy Note 20 Ultra uses a matte glass material, which gives a feeling of hand-holding and does not get too dirty compared to the glossy glass on the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S20.
As expected, the S Pen on the new Galaxy Note has been moved to the left corner. The appearance of the new S Pen remains the same as the previous version. Samsung said that the new S Pen has a lag of only 9 ms, fast and accurate recognition speed to bring the feeling of being used as real writing.
Samsung has added some new gestures to the air control feature. Users can “wave” the pen according to the left V-shape, or draw zig zag to capture the screen. On the Galaxy Note 20, there is a recording note feature added. The machine will memorize the position that I write. Like here, when I press the word Samsung Galaxy Note 20, the recording file will appear in the middle. From there I can open the recording to listen again if needed.
The Galaxy Note 20 has a 12 MP main camera, 64 MP telephoto lens and a 12 MP wide-angle camera on the back. Meanwhile, the rear camera cluster of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a 108 MP main lens, a 12 MP telephoto camera, 12 MP wide angle and laser sensor.
The notable feature on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the 8K video recording in 16: 9 or 21: 9 frame. This is suitable for Vloggers or users who like to make movies with smartphones requiring high quality. The camera’s photography features are still the same as the Galaxy S20 with full modes such as Portrait, Live photo, Night or Single take.
The new Galaxy Note generation uses Exynos 990 chip, 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM. Galaxy Note 20 has a 4,300 mAh battery (Note 10 is 3,500 mAh), Galaxy Note 20 Ultra goes up to 4,500 mAh (Note 10 + is only 4,300 mAh). Both machines have built-in 25 W fast charging.
In addition to black and white, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra also comes in copper. Galaxy Note20 comes in more youthful colors like green, brown, and copper. The new Galaxy Note will have more 5G version in Vietnam for users to choose from.
