Samsung had launched the Galaxy Note 10 series in August last year. Now its successor has reportedly appeared on the Geekbench benchmarking website. The Galaxy Note 20+ 5G has been listed with model number SM-N986U. It is speculated to be the US version, since the Note 10+ 5G carried the model number SM-N976U. The Geekbench listing also reveals some key specifications of the next-generation Galaxy Note smartphone. It was first spotted by SamMobile. There are still a few months until the Galaxy Note 20’s launch, so readers are advised to take this news with a pinch of salt.
The Galaxy Note 20+ 5G is listed with 8GB RAM, but there will be more memory and storage variants . The device will run Android 10 out of the box. The Geekbench listing reveals the Note 20+ 5G’s motherboard is codenamed ‘kona’ which is the Snapdragon 865 processor. However, the listing’s source code shows that the processor speed is clocked at 3.09GHz instead of 2.84GHz hinting at the presence of the unannounced Snapdragon 865+ chipset. In regions like India, Samsung is expected to equip the Galaxy Note 20+ 5G with its in-house Exynos chipset. On the performance front, the Galaxy Note 20+ 5G scores 985 and 3,220 points in single-core and multi-core tests respectively.
Here's a fun one. This is a mold for an inlay for the official Samsung Galaxy Note 11 (Plus) LED View Cover. (Ignore the markings and the aspect ratio could be a little off, too). pic.twitter.com/kAZEFmTXhB

Apart from the Geekbench listing, there is no further information on the Galaxy Note 20+ 5G. Recently, a leaked image of the Galaxy Note 20 case was shared by Ronald Quandt revealing a large rectangular camera module on the back which is same as the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Samsung is yet to confirm the Galaxy Note 20 series. The brand will likely unveil the smartphone in August just like the Note 10 series.
