8 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy Note 20 & 4 Reasons Not To



Wait for Better Performance

Wait for Better Performance

If you want a powerhouse, think about waiting for the Galaxy Note 20. 

Ice Universe says the Galaxy Note 20 series might use Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 Plus chip. Qualcomm recently announced the new chip so odds are good it's inside the Note 20. 

He claims Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865+ will also power the Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Fold 2, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G.

The device's FCC filing also hints at a Snapdragon 865 chip (it's listed as Qualcomm SM8250) and an X55 modem. 

While the Galaxy S20's kernel code hints at the Snapdragon 865, it makes no mention of an in-house Exynos processor from Samsung. 

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 an 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.

Other reports refute this and suggest that Samsung will actually use the Exynos 990 inside the Galaxy Note 20. 

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.
