The volume rocker and power buttons have been moved from left side to the right.
Meanwhile, the S-pen slot has been repositioned to the left from the right side. The top edge has a SIM tray while the bottom edge houses a USB-C port flanked by a microphone and a speaker grille. The rear panel of the Galaxy Note 20 has curved edges and a Galaxy S20 like rectangular camera setup. The report states that the camera module measures 38.1mm by 21.9mm.
As for the internals, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20+ are expected to be equipped with the same hardware as the Galaxy S20 series. Depending on the market, the smartphones will either be powered by Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 SoC. The standard and Plus variants are tipped to be backed by a 4,000 and 4,500mAh battery unit, respectively.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, it’s likely that Samsung will conduct an online-only Galaxy Note 20 launch event in August.
