Introducing Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra, the newest flagships of the Samsung Note series
News unit EMGblog.com: After months of waiting and countless news leaks in Regarding the new Galaxy Note flagships Samsung, this company hours ago in On Wednesday, August 5, 2020 (August 15, 2019), two new phones Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra unveiled. The naming of this series is similar to the S20 series, and the highest features and capabilities are crystallized in the Ultra model. Unlike last year, there are more important differences in memory and battery capacity between the Note 20 and its ultra version, and in the list of differences between these two phones, there are more serious items such as body material, type, resolution and refresh rate of the screen, main and telephoto cameras, and the structure and performance of the S Pen. We find that Pen has played a major role in the degradation of Note 20.
Design and appearance
Series Note20 at least in the upper part of the device compared to the previous ones in the Note10 we have seen it is similar, and here too, full-screen screens with small borders at the top and bottom and a punchy selfie camera in the center of the upper part are used, which these days are somehow in the language of new design. Samsung has changed in the advanced phones of this brand. The top and bottom margins of the screen have been reduced in both phones, and thus more of the device has been allocated to the screen. The edges of the screen in the Ultra model are bent towards the sides, which leads to a visible reduction in the width of the phone, but in the normal version, we face smooth edges without bending.
In Note 20 Ultra uses a combination of two layers of glass on the back and on the phone with a metal chassis, but the material of the back is Samsung says polycarbonate is strengthened!
The design of these two models has completely changed in the back part and while the triple cameras of this part are still vertically located on the left side, but the appearance of these cameras and their surrounding area has now been changed and in every Two of them use a raised rectangular surface to accommodate these three cameras. The prominence of this area is much higher in Note 20 Ultra, and apart from the three cameras, other elements can also be seen in this area, which we will mention in the camera section.
Note20 series also offer special conditions in the field of color, and except for the common bronze color between these two models, which Samsung refers to as Mystic Bronze, Note20 Ultra in black (Mystic Black) and white ( Mystic White) released and Note20 can also be made in Mystic Green and Mystic Grey.
One of the main differences between these two phones should be found in their screens, and here too, conditions are almost similar to what we saw in the Note 10 series; Last year in Note10 and Note10 Plus from 6.3-inch and 6.8-inch screens were used, respectively, both using Dynamic AMOLED technology, and while the screen resolution of the larger model was QHD+ as usual in previous years, the Note 10 is almost the first time in a Note series phone. In recent years, the lower resolution of Full HD+ has been used for phone screens. This procedure is now in Note 20 and Note20 Ultra is also repeated with one or two differences. The aspect ratio on both these screens has now been upgraded to 20:9, but the previous procedure for changing the resolution is present here as well.
The screen of Note 20 Ultra is a 6.9-inch model with a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels, which is made with the latest Samsung technology in this sector, i.e. Dynamic AMOLED 2X, and like the S20 family, it has a refresh rate of 120 Hz in Full HD resolution and 60 Hertz uses QHD. The touch sampling rate of this screen has also increased to 240 Hz, which is at the level of gaming phones in the market. 25% improvement of the brightness of the screen in external environments and reaching 1,500 nits are among other interesting points in this section, and the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is placed inside the screen as expected in both phones.
The cover on the screen in the Note 20 Ultra, the latest achievement of the Corning company is Gorilla Glass Victus has been announced, but no information has been released about Note 20 in this regard.
The Note 20 screen has no big difference with the ultra model in terms of dimensions and size, and with 6.7 inches, it is still considered quite a large sample. The resolution of this panel has been reduced to 1080 x 2400 pixels, and the strange thing is that the technology of this panel is now two degrees lower than the Super AMOLED type, and the 120 Hz refresh rate has been omitted. For comparison, it is enough to know that even the Galaxy S20, the cheapest smartphone of the S series in 2020, not only had a Dynamic AMOLED panel, but also supported a 120 Hz refresh rate. The edges of this screen are not curved.
In the back part of both phones, three cameras are used under each other on the left side, and despite the similarity in appearance, important differences can be seen between them. The main camera of the Note 20 Ultra is 108 megapixels with a very large 1/1.33-inch sensor and the ability to combine 9 adjacent pixels in one pixel to capture 12 megapixel images, which is apparently the same as in S20 Ultra and we recorded very acceptable results. he does. The front lens of this camera has an f/1.8 aperture, which is no different from the S20 Ultra. The second camera of this part in Note20 Ultra is a 12-megapixel telephoto model with f/3.0 and periscope lens, which apparently has 5x optical zoom and its final zoom reaches 50x. The third camera of this phone, which is located above the other two cameras, is a 12-megapixel ultrawide model that provides a wide field of view. The lens aperture of this camera is f/2.2 and it has auto focus.
In the normal Note20, there is no change in the 12-megapixel ultrawide camera, but the main 108-megapixel camera has been replaced by a 12-megapixel unit with f/1.8, and instead of a 12-megapixel periscope camera, a 64-megapixel telephoto unit with 1.1 Equal to the optical zoom and 3 times the zoom, the final zoom reaches 30x. If this combination seems familiar to you, you are not wrong, because the Note 20’s triple cameras are apparently the same as those on Galaxy S20 are also present.
Next to the camera lenses in Note 20 Ultra, a laser focus mechanism and ToF distance detection sensor are used, which apart from significantly improving the speed and accuracy of focus and blurring the background, they will probably be used in AI-related applications as well. became.
One of the new features related to the Note20 Ultra video recording department is the possibility of recording 8K video in the main camera of this model, this time apart from the usual ratio of 16:9 in the cinematic ratio of 21:9 (or 3296×7680 pixels) can also be done at 24 frames per second.
Other new options are also considered in the video recording section of this camera, which includes adjusting the zoom speed during video recording in the professional video recording menu. This set works differently in the field of sound recording during video recording and by relying on 3 microphones, it provides the possibility of changing the direction of the received sound and so-called focusing on a specific direction. Another exciting feature in this section is the ability to select the Bluetooth option and then receive sound from the microphones on the Galaxy Buds Live headset, in which case an acceptable sound can be obtained from the subject located at a further distance.
Samsung this time a change In the present selfie camera, there is no punching on the top of the screen and this time, the same 10 megapixel autofocus with f/2.2 sample is used as before in Note10 and +Note10 and S20 and S20+ was also used.
S-Pen or the pen that comes with the phone is one of the most important differences between the Note series and its Galaxy S counterparts, which has been with it since the first generation of this family until today, and new features have been added to it over time. Is. Among these changes should be the activation of this pen from Galaxy Note9 pointed out that with the presence of battery and Bluetooth, it was possible to use it as a pointer in PowerPoint presentations, play and stop YouTube videos and take photos remotely. In Note 20 Ultra, after two generations, another important change has taken place in this family, which will play an effective role in improving the efficiency of this device.
The response time of this pen in Note20 Ultra has been upgraded to only 9 milliseconds, which is very close to the feeling of writing with a real pen. This response time puts the S Pen Samsung with a big competitor called The second-generation Apple Pencil will line up and offer a similar experience on paper. According to Samsung, part of the success of this part is the result of artificial intelligence and predicting pen movements before they are done. Of course, this pen still has a battery and Bluetooth communication capability, and the features related to this communication option have not changed.
The delay time of 9 milliseconds of the pen in this series is unique to Note20 Ultra and in Note20 uses the same technology as last year.
In the software section related to the S Pen, Samsung has unveiled new motion gestures without the need to touch the screen or Air actions, including moving the pen from top to bottom to the right (), to open applications. Recent App, point from bottom to top and then down again (similar to the letter n) to return to the home page.
The new air actions are not the only software change related to S Pen this time, and in the meantime, we also come across other features; Audio Bookmark is one of these new features, during which you can write notes at the same time. With the pen directly on the screen, he also recorded the sound of the environment, which is completely synchronized with the written text, and when browsing the recorded sound, the added texts are also displayed at the same time. Automatic alignment of the italic writings inserted on the screen (Auto Straighten), annotation on PDF and receiving PowerPoint output from writings inserted on PDF documents are among other new points in this section.
Foldering system and new page structure for notes entered with a pen is another new thing that Samsung says has been added to the new Galaxy Notes by receiving user feedback. In this structure, it is easier to access and find different notes.
Samsung has also announced its cooperation with Microsoft to improve productivity and work better with the Windows operating system, where through the Link to Windows option, the content changed in the smartphone in the shortest time, i.e. about 10 to 15 seconds later. It syncs with the computer. Automatic saving of notes written with Microsoft Atlook and OneNote, experience of multiple screens or Multi window and syncing of reminders are other new things in this section.
Processor and memory
Processing in both new models of the Note20 family as expected with the processor +Snapdragon 865 for the American and Chinese markets and Exynos 990 for other global markets. The new heat reduction and heat removal system in this series is done through the vapor chamber, which according to Samsung is the thinnest and slimmest model of its kind. The 5G version of Note 20 is equipped with 8 GB of RAM, while the 5G version of Note 20 Ultra uses 12 GB of RAM.
The battery capacity in both phones of this series has been improved compared to last year’s Note 10, which is to be expected considering the significant increase in screen size. Note 20 battery capacity is equal to 4,300 mAh, and Note 20 Ultra is equipped with a 4,500 mAh battery, compared to Note10 Plus has seen a slight change from last year with a 4,300 mAh battery. Fast charging of both of these batteries is apparently done with the 25-watt charger present in the box. According to Samsung, more than 50% of the battery capacity of this series phones is filled in just 30 minutes.
Communication options – the birth of UWB
According to the usual routine of Galaxy Note smartphones Samsung, in the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, we also encounter a complete set of communication options at different levels, starting from 5G in both mmWave and sub-6GHz modes and continuing to Bluetooth 5, dual-band satellite routers and Wi-Fi 6. Ultra-Wideband Technology or UWB is a new communication capability in this model, which is intended for exchanging information at short distances with minimum energy, and from it to communicate with devices based on the Internet of Things, turn on the car, pass through smart doors without the need It can be used for physical keys and other similar things.
Samsung has introduced this technology more accurately than the combination of NFC and Bluetooth and has included identification in a short time and high-speed transfer of large files among its capabilities. Samsung has read the functions of this new technology endlessly, including mobile payments, timing with home appliances and devices connected to the Internet of Things.
In this case, information exchange between two phones is done with a feature called Point to Share, during which it is enough to bring two phones close to each other.
This feature will use AR effects to identify a place or an item in the future with SmartThings Fins.
Digital Key option in this section allows you to open the door of your home or office without using a key and only with a mobile phone.
Samsung has also unveiled the Nearby Share communication option on this basis, through which you can not only share files between Samsung Galaxy devices, but this possibility is also available for other Android smartphones, i.e. 2 billion other phones. In Samsung’s collaboration with Google, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra will be the first device to support Nearby Share when using UWB. According to this feature, by selecting the Share option on the desired file, UWB devices will be displayed in pale blue color, and by selecting each one, the color of that device will change to dark blue, and after confirming the destination device, the transfer process will begin.
