Samsung’s announcement event today will be the official preview for Galaxy Note 20, which has been widely speculated and much-leaked. An AT&T advertising video showing off pretty much every angle of the smartphone and also lists the most significant specifications and new features for those who wanted yet another look at the smartphone in full before its release.
The video, which appeared on Twitter via South American technology blogger Karlos Peru, tends to have been prepared to advertise the new smartphone and its bigger Ultra model as a bit of marketing aspect. It doesn’t explain something new that we haven’t already heard or suspected about Samsung’s incoming extra-large smartphones. Still, it’s pretty amazing that a video emerges just before of an official announcement with so many details and information.
For example, the video shows, the two phones — the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and the regular Galaxy Note 20, both of which will have features of 5G. It also lists the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset and the 6.9-inch Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED 2X display in the Ultra variant, 3200 x 1440 with a higher refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The video also indicated the difference between the display screens of both variants, with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display as the standard variant.
The story goes through the latest S Pen, Microsoft Office stylus compatibility for PowerPoint and Word, 8K video features, a base Galaxy Note 20 with 64-megapixel camera sensor (30x Space Zoom) and Ultra variant with 108-megapixel (50x Space Zoom). If you are wondering about the size of the charger, this advertising show has it as well. The regular Galaxy Note 20 will have a 4,300mAh battery, while the Ultra motel will have a 4,500mAh battery capacity. The video also explains the color choices for the standard model: mystic bronze, mystic green, mystic brown and mystic bronze, mystic white mystic black for the Ultra model.
All of this substantially aligns with what we plan to see today. Yet again, having such substantial leaks ahead of an official product event is still a little infuriating. It’s fairly obvious at this stage that Samsung has no proper way to control that kind of stuff unless it fundamentally changes its strategy to activities, marketing, and maybe even internal manufacturing and design.
