As mentioned in most rumour reports, the Note 20 series will have 6.7 to 6.9-inch screens with Infinity-0 displays, so no surprise there.

The Note 20 Ultra will come with four lenses at the rear (nice!). It will have 108 mega-pixel lens and 50x optical zoom while the regular Note 20 has 20x optical zoom. Both versions have 10 mega-pixel front-facing cameras.

Thanks to both models being powerhouses, the battery lives are more than great. Samsung’s also boasting super-fast charging capabilities so you can get more than 50 per cent charge in just 30 minutes.

Its advanced S Pen function has five new gesture controls to help with ‘touchless navigation of your device’. What’s also kind of cool and efficient is that the Samsung Notes app will allow you to save your notes across multiple devices like your PC, tablet and phone. This is great for people who love taking notes.
