  • The Bluetooth Special Interest Group has certified an upcoming Samsung smartphone with the name "Galaxy Note 20 Ultra."
  • The certification contradicts a previous rumor that claimed Samsung isn't going to release a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
  • Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 20 series in August.

A rumor had suggested last month that Samsung may not release an "Ultra" version of the Galaxy Note 20. Surprisingly, however, a piece of evidence hinting at the existence of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has now surfaced.

As spotted by MySmartPrice, the "Galaxy Note 20 Ultra" has been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), The certification suggests Samsung will be releasing a total of three Galaxy Note 20 models this year. However, the Note 20 Ultra has been listed with the model number SM-N986U, which was previously associated with the Note 20 Plus.

If the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra does exist, it could be even bigger than the S20 Ultra in terms of physical footprint. According to the latest leaks, the Galaxy Note 20+ is expected to sport an identical 6.9-inch Infinity-O display as the S20 Ultra. In addition to a bigger display, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is likely to offer a few other upgrades as well over the standard Note 20 and Note 20+. Needless to say, that also means the Note 20 Ultra might potentially be pricier than the S20 Ultra, which starts at $1,400 in the U.S.

Samsung is rumored to launch the Galaxy Note 20 series at an online-only event in August. Along with the Galaxy Note 20 series phones, Samsung may also unveil a new foldable phone at the same event.

  • This Is what I Thought and are looking forward to.
    Hopefully it will also come with More RAM & ROM than the Note 20 and Note 20+.
    1TB of Storage is what I'm HOPING for.
  • Curved glass??? No headphone jack??? Need to take out a 2nd mortgage in order to pay for it??? LOL
    So sad! If they offered it with a flat least, forget the other missing things, and at a price that makes "real" sense...I would certainly be interested. But as it is, the way Samsmug is currently going, I will never own a Samsmug phone. Oh well, their loss. I can spend my money elsewhere.
  • 2022 will mark five years since I bought my Note 8. In my opinion, if you buy a flagship, then the minimum time it should last you is five years. Tiny annual mobile phone changes add up to something more significant after five years. Lol, but I know, there are nuts out there who will strain their eyes at annual tiny mobile phone photo differences, a little more RAM this year, a fraction larger display, or, lol, software that turns a phone on... The 1-2yr upgrade folks that seemingly devote their lives to monthly mobile phone payments. So, we'll see what 2022 brings.
  • Triple the phones, triple the flop. The massive flop of the S20 apparently didn't send a clear enough message that this new path of oversized, overprices, underfeatured phones isn't cutting it with their customers. Very well, let them get poor numbers again.
  • Only 2 models with one of them featuring Note 20+ like hardware configuration but with "Ultra" name? Looks like the "Ultra" brand could be a thing to level up the price one again...
