What you need to know
- A new rumor suggests the Galaxy Note 20 will have a Full HD+ resolution display with a 60Hz refresh rate.
- The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, however, is expected to come with a 120Hz LTPO display with Quad HD+ resolution.
- Samsung is rumored to unveil the Galaxy Note 20 series at an online-only Unpacked event on August 5.
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 20 may not be as big an upgrade over the Galaxy Note 10 as previously expected. According to a new tweet from tipster Ice Universe, the vanilla Galaxy Note 20 will only have a 60Hz display, just like the Note 10.

It's a desperate specification.😑
If the tipster is to be believed, the Galaxy Note 20 is going to feature a Full HD+ resolution panel with no curved edges on the sides. The absence of curved edges on the Galaxy Note 20 is certainly not surprising, as the leaked CAD-based renders of the phone had also suggested the same. The tipster adds the phone will have a "wide frame" as well.
Interestingly, the tipster mentions in his tweet that the Galaxy Note 20 will be far less impressive than the Note 20 Ultra in terms of specs. Whether this means the Galaxy Note 20 will be significantly more affordable than the Galaxy S20, is something that remains to be seen. While Samsung was expected to release just two Note 20 series phones, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group certified the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra earlier this month. Both the Galaxy Note 20+ and Note 20 Ultra are likely to feature Quad HD+ LTPO displays with a 120Hz refresh rate.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 20 series is rumored to break cover at an online-only event on August 5. Along with the Note 20 series, Samsung is tipped to launch the Galaxy Fold 2 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G as well at its first online Unpacked event.
