Wait for Better Performance
If you want a powerhouse, think about waiting for the Galaxy Note 20.
According to Ice Universe, the "Galaxy Note 20's hardware specifications will not be significantly changed compared to the S20 series."
Nothing is confirmed, but it looks like the next Galaxy Note might utilize Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC. The move doesn't come as much of a surprise because Samsung already uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chip in the Galaxy S20 line.
The current Galaxy Note model, the Galaxy Note 10, utilizes an older Snapdragon 855 chip.
A more recent tweet, Ice Universe says the Galaxy Note 20 series might actually use Qualcomm's unannounced Snapdragon 865+ chip. If that's true, expect an announcement soon.
He claims Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865+ will also power the Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Fold 2, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G.
While the Galaxy S20's kernel code hints at the Snapdragon 865, it makes no mention of an in-house Exynos processor from Samsung.
That said, a report from ZDNet Korea states that Samsung is planning to put a new Exynos 992 chip inside the new Galaxy Note. Samsung's currently flagship, the Galaxy S20, is powered by the in-house Exynos 990 processor.
The publication says Samsung has been conducting research and development on Exynos 992 which is said to improve the power performance of the Exynos 990.
Early Galaxy Note 20 Ultra benchmarks also hint at the presence of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chip. They also hint at 8GB of RAM on board.
This is a bit odd given that 12GB of RAM is on board the Galaxy S20 5G. Again, these are early benchmarks so a lot can change between now and the final release.
Samsung-centric blog Galaxy Club claims that one version of the Galaxy Note 20 has the same battery capacity as the Galaxy S20.
According to the source, it looks like the base version of the Galaxy Note 20 has a 4,000 mAh battery inside. If true, this would be a a 500mAh increase over the Galaxy Note 10 which has a 3,500 mAh battery.
The same source claims the larger Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will have a 4,500 mAh battery. That's a 200 mAh bump up from the Galaxy Note 10+'s battery, but it doesn't come close to the Galaxy S20 Ultra's 5,000 mAh battery size.
Information gleaned from from China’s 3C certification database points to a larger 4,300 mAh battery on the base Galaxy Note 20 model. Either way, we should see a bump.
