Last year’s Galaxy Note 10 Plus was truly a thing of beauty, with an amazing screen and superlative industrial design. Judging by some high quality (and completely unofficial) comes the Galaxy Note 20 Plus. It seems that Samsung won’t be changing too much in 2020. The only major difference is a new, bulkier camera module on the rear of the device.
These renders come from noted leaker @Onleaks in collaboration with phone case maker Pigfou. The design they suggest for the Note 20 Plus seems reasonable enough.
The most obvious feature is the big, nearly edge-to-edge display, with curved bezzels, sloping sides and a small, central hole punch cutout for the selfie camera that is near identical to the 2019 design. The top and bottom edge also look the same as that of Note 10 Plus, with speaker grille, charging port and space for the signature S Pen stylus.
In terms of size, the Note 20 Plus will be slightly bigger than the 10 Plus, with a 6.9- inch display instead of last year’s 6-8 inch AMOLED screen and slightly longer but thinner dimensions, with the same overall width (165mm long, 77.2mm wide and 7.6 mm thick according to leaks). The most noticeable change, though, is the camera module on the rear of the device, which is much bigger than that of the 2019 Note Plus.
If the Note 20 and 20 Plus are anything like previous iterations in the series, they will contain the best, biggest and brightest of Samsung’s smartphone specs. So it’s not unreasonable to expect some high-end camera hardware. I have not seen any leaked specs for the 2020 Notes, though, so will have to see what surfaces in the months to come.
Reports suggest that Samsung will be launching the Note 20 in August, though this will likely be an online-only event as a reaction to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.
