Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra Design and Display
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra has eye-catching looks and serious durability. Crafted from a stunning metal body and featuring a fuss-free, seamless design, this smartphone is guaranteed to sit comfortably in your hand. The handset has an IP68 dust and water resistance rating - meaning it can survive in up to 1.5m of water for 30 minutes - and it's also been created with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus (the toughest glass to ever be used on a smartphone).
Covering the front of this device is a massive 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display. With its Quad HD+ resolution and 120Ghz refresh rate, this device is a must-have for avid gamers, and ideal for anyone who's after a cinematic experience directly from their smartphone.
To add to its overall seamless design, Samsung has built an Ultrasonic Fingerprint scanner into the screen. Extremely responsive, you can unlock the phone with a simple touch - or you can make the most of the handset's facial recognition tech and access the handset securely with a glance.
We can't talk about a Note handset without discussing the iconic S Pen stylus. An essential stylus that’s accompanied all previous Samsung Galaxy Note models, the S Pen on the Note20 Ultra is the best yet. Improved accuracy, speed and a collection of new gestures make it easier than ever to use, and there are loads of exciting features for users to explore. You can convert handwritten notes to text with one tap, or you can jot them down even when the device is locked thanks to Screen Off Memo. Screen Write gives you more control over your notes too, enabling you to add annotations to screenshots or add comments to articles you're reading.
Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra Camera
If you're after a cutting-edge camera, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra has you covered. There's a fantastic 10MP camera front-facing camera for all your selfie needs, and an advanced triple-lens camera system on the rear. You'll find three unique lenses and a Laser AF sensor placed neatly on the back of this device, with the 108MP main lens delivering quality photos all day, every day. Whether you're shooting in broad daylight or in a low-light environment, you'll always be able to capture the smallest details and the most vibrant colours with stunning accuracy.
Next up, the 12MP ultra-wide lens. Thanks to the 120-degree field of view offered by this camera, squeezing more of the action into your photo is no longer a struggle. Perfect for large group pics or for nightscapes, you can really get creative and shoot outside of traditional boundaries.
Last but not least, the 12MP telephoto lens completes the rear camera setup. Equipped with 50x Space Zoom, you'll have the freedom to focus on the smallest of details when shooting on this phone - all without having to worry about a dip in photo quality. The telephoto lens will also be your go-to whenever you want to recreate that desired bokeh effect.
With the rear camera you'll even have the chance to shoot in jaw-dropping 8K - so you really can capture cinema-quality videos straight from your phone. Pro Video Mode and advanced Samsung-exclusive editing software will give you more control as you film too - you'll be able to do things like adjust the zoom speed while filming, and add a range of effects to master post-production.
Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra Power
There's more than enough power behind the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra, so no matter what you're doing, you can be confident that you'll never have to put up with slow performance speeds or a lag in gameplay. Built with some of the best smartphone specs out there, the handset runs on Android 10, uses Samsung's UI 2.5 and features an advanced Exynos 990 chipset, octa-core processor and 12GB RAM.
The handset is also 5G-ready, meaning you'll instantly be able to enjoy the perks of the next-gen 5G network whenever you're in a supported area. Downloads will be complete in seconds, HD streaming will no longer be a hassle, and gamers can expect lightning-fast response times.
Samsung has also made this smartphone one of the first to be compatible with Xbox Game Pass. Coming in September 2020, you'll be able to play over 100 Xbox games directly from the handset with a subscription. You can even connect a controller (sold separately) for a fully immersive gaming experience.
Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra Battery
There's no need to worry about running out of power with the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra. Thanks to the incredibly long-lasting 4,500 mAh battery, you'll never find yourself without power when you need it the most.
When you do need to boot the handset back up however, you won't have to wait around long. You'll have the choice between 15W wireless charging (charger sold separately) which will take you to 50% in 30 minutes, or high-speed 25W fast charging where you'll be able to 100% in as little as one hour.
Samsung's PowerShare feature is also available. Using reverse wireless charging technology, you can transfer power from your phone to another compatible smartphone that's running low on power. You can even charge up your Samsung Galaxy Buds or a Samsung Galaxy Watch if you'd prefer. Just place the device in need of some juice onto the back of the handset to begin.
