We still haven’t had any official announcements from Samsung regarding the Note20 series as of yet, expecting the company to only reveal the new phone series sometime in early to mid-August if past release dates are any indications. Yet in a surprise blunder, the company has managed to publicly upload two product images of the upcoming Note20+ or Ultra (naming uncertain) on one of its Ukrainian pages.

Whilst we usually don’t report on leaks or unofficial speculations as part of our editorial standards – a first party blunder like this is very much an exception to the rule.

The leak showcases the seemingly bigger sibling of the Note20 series as it features the full camera housing and seemingly same modules as the Galaxy S20 Ultra. There’s been a design aesthetic change as the cameras are now accentuated by a ring element around the lenses, making the modules appear more consistent with each other, even though there’s still clearly different sized lenses along with the rectangular periscope zoom module. The images showcase actual depth on the part of the ring elements, so they may extend in three dimensions.

The new gold/bronze colour also marks a return for Samsung for such a more metallic option.

We expect the Note20 series to be a minor hardware upgrade over the S20 devices, with the most defining characteristic naturally being the phone’s integrated S-Pen stylus.

    it looks good. I hope Samsung does much better with Camera Software this time around. Hardware itself is top notch. I hope to see the 50mp module mentioned few months back instead of the 108mp one.

    Its still the 108mp sensor, only with 50x zoom rather than that 100x one.

    Great phones but in a world of superb $400 budget phones, I'm not sure there'll be many takers for $1100 phones. I'm more excited about the Pixel 4a while typing this from my iPhone SE 2.

    $1,100? I think you're being optimistic. The S20 Ultra retailed for $1,399 at launch.

    They added a new sensor for focusing...should take care of the S20 Ultra camera issues.

    No headphone jack = FAIL

    something wrong with the comment system?

    ...seems to be fixed. Never mind.
    Unfortunately Note 10 seemed to have sold fine, so not nearly enough people are boycotting Samsung for this, even among Note users.

    well jack is dated and quite obsolescent & dated, being to big in where phones fight for every mm of thickness/size.
    I cannot understand why headphones did not get this kind of connector:
    where it would take 10% of the size of jack while still allowing you to use cabled.
    I guess nobody want to introduce new ports at this point.
  • icebox - Friday, July 3, 2020 - link

    my guess is because if you replace it why not replace it with usb-c - since your phone already has to have that port. I know it's not analogue but it makes sense. If you ask people to change all their audio stuff why not change it to the port you already have to install in the phone.

    The beauty of the 3.5mm jack is that it goes back 40 years (or 70 for the mono version).
