The tech world never ceases to have high hopes from Samsung, as we’re talking about the world leader in smartphone manufacturing. And since South Korea’s authorities managed to handle the COVID-19 pandemic very well, Samsung has no excuse if it won’t satisfy its fans this year. The Galaxy Note 20 5G model is an upcoming flagship of the Asian tech giant, and nobody would accept a disappointment.
But even so, the leakster Roland Quandt posted press renders for the Galaxy Note 20 4G and Note 20 5G. Unfortunately, the information wasn’t actually what the fans were expecting.
Weaker camera setup than expected
The camera module is visually similar to the one from the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, but it ditches the new laser autofocus system entirely. Samsung even replaced the 108-megapixel camera found on the premium device with a 12-megapixel main snapper. There’s also worth mentioning that a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter is present, and it offers a 1/2,55″ sensor size, an f/2.2 aperture, and a 120-degree field-of-view. Samsung has also mounted a 64-megapixel telephoto zoom implementation that supports an F/2.0 aperture, OIS, and a 1/1.76″ sensor size.
There’s also support for 3x hybrid zoom and 30x digital zoom, which means a downgrade from the 5x optical zoom and 50x Space Zoom that the Note 20 Ultra has to offer. The 10-megapixel selfie camera is also present. As for the video recording part, the rear camera is able to shoot up to 8K format.
Lower resolution and refresh rate
The resolution also plays a major role these days for smartphones, regardless if we admit it or not. Galaxy Note 20 has a bigger 6.7-inch AMOLED display. It supports a 60Hz refresh rate and features a lower 2400 x 1080p resolution.
Of course, we can’t be one hundred percent sure until the official release, and that will happen most likely next month.
