What’s new with Galaxy Note 20?
First of all, Samsung has teamed up with Microsoft to bring an optimized cloud gaming on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20. This makes it the first smartphone in the world to feature special optimizations for Microsoft’s project X cloud game streaming service. Galaxy Note 20 can be used to play more than 90 Xbox gaming titles via the Xbox game pass. Again, the Galaxy Note 20 will also be the first handset to offer the Corning Gorilla Glass 7 protection.
Corning hasn’t put any info about the gorilla glass 7, but it will be stronger than its predecessor. Coming to the camera, Samsung hasn’t just cut the zoom to 50X from 100X, but they’ve also used a new, bigger sensor of 1-micron pixel size and has an aperture of f/3.0. The S-pen now has 26ms latency exactly like the Apple pencil. Making it the fastest on the planet. Samsung Dex now works wireless, without needing any cables.
There were (as at the time of this writing) speculations that Samsung was working on the Android 11 update for Galaxy S20. A member of the XDA Developers community had spotted Android 11 mentioned as the latest OS version for the Galaxy S20 Ultra on Samsung’s official firmware version tracker, suggesting that early development has kicked off. But still, these were just speculations. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 comes running Android 10 with One UI 2.1. It seems like the brief given to Samsung’s software design team for One UI 2.1 was simple: Improve existing functionality and add new features that prove to be useful.
Depending on where you buy the Galaxy Note 20, you will either get the Exynos 990 (7 nm+), otherwise Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 (7 nm+) version. According to Versus, these two chipsets are at par both with big.LITTLE technology and effective use of Heterogeneous Multi-Processing. But with CPU speed Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 boasts an upper hand. Samsung saw the Galaxy Note 20 come with this storage option: 256GB with 8GB RAM.

UFS 3.1 is 3 times faster than UFS 3.0.
This was how Samsung spoke about the camera of the Note 20’s predecessors. “We packed powerful pro-grade technology in your pocket with the Galaxy Note10‘s multi-camera system, giving you the power to go from shoot to edit instantly.” This time, with the Note 20 Series it is even better.
