Samsung’s new Galaxy S20 series looks great, the Galaxy S10 is getting cheaper, and so is the Galaxy Note 10. These are great options, but some of you might want to hold onto your current phone and wait for the Galaxy Note 11, also known as the Galaxy Note 20.
If you’re thinking about upgrading your phone, you might have your eyes on Samsung’s Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10 5G, or Galaxy Note 10. They represent some of devices on the market and for many people, they’ll be worth the investment.
If you aren’t married to Android, make sure you check out Apple’s iPhone 11 line. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are some of the best Galaxy S20/Galaxy S10/Galaxy Note 10 alternatives. You’ll also want to consider other Android devices like the OnePlus 7T and Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
There’s also a good chance Samsung releases an updated version of the Galaxy Note.
Galaxy Note 11 Rumors
We’re only a few months into the new year so it should come as no surprise to learn that we don’t know a ton about the company’s plans for the Note series in 2020.
According to Samsung-centric blog SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 11/Galaxy Note 20 is currently in development. One of the models will reportedly come with SM-N981 as its model number.
The site claims at least one of the Galaxy Note 11 models will come with 128GB of internal storage which means it will likely have a microSD card slot for expanded storage.
Ice Universe, a notorious leaker, claims the Galaxy Note 11/Galaxy Note 20, is codenamed “Project C” internally. “Project C” looks like it stands for “Project Canvas.”
XDA-Developers has discovered references to “Project Canvas” inside the Galaxy S20’s kernal code which all but confirms Samsung’s plans to release a new Galaxy Note later this year.
If Samsung decides to go with a two-pronged launch in 2020 (Galaxy S, Galaxy Note), you can expect the company to make upgrades to the foundation left behind by the Note 10. You can also expect the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 11 to share some things in common.
Leaker Max Weinbach claims the 2020 Galaxy Note that “basically everything is the same.” Two key differences? The S Pen and a design that features squared off corners.
The first legit design leak, which shows the device’s LED View Cover, gives us a look at the Galaxy Note 11’s potential design. The two biggest things we can glean from the leak:
- The hardware buttons are on the right side as opposed to the left like the Galaxy Note 10.
- There is a massive cutout for the camera which hints at a Galaxy S20 Ultra-like camera.
The Galaxy Note 11 release date is several months and many of you won’t want to delay an upgrade until the summer.
That said, the Galaxy Note 11 should be on your radar if you’re planning to upgrade your phone sometime in 2020, even if it’s just to rule out waiting for its launch.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to wait for the Galaxy Note 11 and the best reasons to go with another device today, tomorrow, or sometime in the weeks ahead.
Wait for Better Cameras
Samsung always makes year-to-year improvements to the cameras on the Galaxy S series and Galaxy Note series and you can upgrades in 2020. In fact, we could see some major changes on the Note 11.
The company's new Galaxy S20 models have some significant upgrades on board. That bodes well for the Note series.
The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ have a 64MP camera while the Galaxy S20 Ultra has an 108MP camera. The devices also feature Space Zoom technology that utilizes a combination of Hybrid Optic Zoom and Super Resolution Zoom.
You get up to 30X zoom on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ while the Galaxy S20 Ultra features a whopping 100X zoom.
According to Ice Universe, a well-known leaker, the Galaxy Note 11/Galaxy Note 20's cameras will likely mirror the Galaxy S20 camera setup.
A rumor claims that Samsung is developing a brand new 150MP Nonacell sensor for release in 2020, but we don't expect Samsung to tack it on the Galaxy Note 20.
The cameras on board the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 are good enough for most people, but if you aren't impressed and want something better, and you prefer the Galaxy Note series to the Galaxy S, you might want to hang around and wait.
