Launched in August 2020, the Galaxy Note20 is Samsung’s less expensive and slightly smaller version of their flagship business/consumer-oriented smartphone. It features the same high-end Exynos 990 chipset as the more expensive Note20 Ultra model, runs Google’s Android 10 operating with 8GB RAM, and offers 256 GB of non-expandable internal memory. The 6.7-inch AMOLED Plus display on the Note20 is only slightly smaller than the 6.9-inch Ultra version, too, although the latter does boast a higher-resolution display and a faster refresh rate.
Both devices come with three cameras, including standard-wide, ultra-wide and telephoto modules, but camera specifications vary between the two models. The standard-wide on the Note20 features a 12MP 1/1.76-inch sensor, linked to a 26 mm-equivalent f/1.8-aperture lens with dual pixel phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) and optical image stabilization. That’s a significantly different configuration compared to the 108 MP Quad Bayer sensor Samsung has implemented on the Note20 Ultra.
