Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ may launch with Snapdragon 865+ SoC
Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ is expected to launch in the second half of 2020 if everything goes according to the company’s plan. Just like last year, we expect to see at least two models in the lineup, a regular Galaxy Note 20 and an improved Galaxy Note 20+. Recent reports have suggested that the Galaxy Note 20 could retain the same design and hardware as the Galaxy S20 but with the S Pen’s support and square corners. Now, Tipster Ice Universe noted, citing the results from Galaxy Note 20+, Geekbench states the phone will ship with the unannounced Snapdragon 865+ SoC as it has a center frequency of up to 3.09GHz, compared to 2.84 clock speed. GHz on the normal Snapdragon 865. To recall, Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 855+ chipset in the second half of 2019 with slightly higher CPU and GPU compared to the normal Snapdragon 855.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series can also include a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra model very similar to the Galaxy S20 Ultra. These phones could come with a perforated design in the center, a rectangular camera module at the back, and a dynamic Quad HD + AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate as seen in the current Galaxy S20 series. While some markets may get the Snapdragon 865 + Note 20 series, India will probably get the phones with an Exynos processor. To recall, Samsung also made a move similar to Qualcomm’s when it announced the Exynos 9825 chipset in the Galaxy Note 10 series last year. The processor was a slight upgrade to the Exynos 9820. Similarly, the company may launch the Galaxy Note 20 series with an updated Exynos chipset, possibly called the Exynos 995.
Samsung Galaxy Note flagships generally launch around August before the IFA show, but given the current worldwide coronavirus pandemic and supply chain delay, the announcement of the Galaxy Note 20 series could further delay the year. But then again, we are still months away and things could change at any moment.
