What you need to know

  • Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has surfaced in a hands-on video.
  • The video seemingly confirms the presence of a large camera bump at the back and the repositioned S Pen slot.
  • Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy Note 20 series at its first virtual Unpacked event on August 5.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra surfaced in real-life images earlier this week, courtesy of YouTube Jimmy Is Promo. The YouTuber has now posted a hands-on video that shows off the design of the next Samsung flagship phone and reveals a few new details.

As confirmed by the recently leaked live images of the phone, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will sport an Infinity-O display with curved edges and a tiny hole-punch cutout at the top. On the back of the phone is a rather large camera bump housing three camera sensors. In fact, Jimmy Is Promo says the camera bump on the back is even bigger than the S20 Ultra's. The video also gives us our first look at the phone's massive 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED display in action.

Thanks to its slightly larger display, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will be bigger than the Note 10+ when it comes to the physical footprint. Some of the other key design differences between the two phones include the positioning of the S Pen, as well as the power and volume buttons.

The hands-on video also reveals a new S Pen pointer feature that the Note 20 series phones will offer. The feature will let you use the S Pen as a digital pointer and customize its speed, color, and trail.

  • Doesn't Samsung slap SAMSUNG on the back of all their phones?
  • What a huge camera bump it has. I remember ppl making fun of the camera bump from the iPhone 6 and now every Android manufacturer has added one lol.
  • I own a S20 Ultra and that camera bump annoys me but this one is just ridiculous now!
  • Sorry to the southpaws, but I don't understand why Samsung put the s pen on the left side when most people are right handed.
  • I guess I never understood this but I have ALWAYS used my phones in my lefthand and I am righthanded. It feels very unnatural for me to have my phone in my dominate hand and not be able to do anything else. So this spen location change is actually annoying to me because I always liked holding the phone in my left hand and using my right thumb to pop the spen from the right side. Now will have to reach in closer to get it from th left. Oh well, first world problems. I'm just i'll adjust fine (or just keep my pixel for the superior pictures with movement and buy the new Tab S7 :)
  • Another great end to a year of craziness. Note20Ultra will be joining my Note10Plus and Note9, Oneplus7pro at home base August 21st.
  • I don't need the top of the line specs. I like the S Pen, and the good cameras. I'd like to see a Note 20 light, with the same cameras and S Pen, but basically attached to a flat screen with maybe Note 7 or 8 specs, in the 600 dollar area.
