Samsung has a unique design challenge with the Galaxy Note series.
Part of what makes a Note flagship a Note in the first place is its signature squarish
Throughout the years we have seen the design being reformed.
It has been refined from the days of chunky bezels and plastics to the sleek and modern
design that we love today.
Samsung has managed to retain the silhouette with every generation of the Galaxy Note and
that’s also the story with last year's Galaxy Note 10.
In my opinion, the Note 10 is arguably the best looking Samsung smartphone in recent
The more you look at it and the more you play with it, you come to understand the nuances
of what Samsung has achieved with its new flagship.
It is refinement personified.
And thankfully, it seems the Galaxy Note 20 series is going to keep that same look going
On leaks revealed the first look of the Galaxy Note 20 Plus which shows the handset from
As you can see it basically looks like a Galaxy Note 10 with subtle curves and a boxy design.
But there are a few differences, though and the most obvious one is this huge camera layout
that's more in your face than the Galaxy S20 series.
Not really a fan of this abomination but Samsung added camera rings this time which to be honest,
looks really good.
Kinda reminds me of the camera rings on the iPhone 11 Pro and that's not a bad thing.
Surprisingly they moved the S-Pen slot to the left and the physical keys to the right
side from the left on the Galaxy Note 10.
Here's another important thing, the thickness of the Note 20+ is 7.6mm according to Onleaks
which is a good thing because for comparison the S20 Ultra is 8.8mm thick and it doesn't
really look and feel great in the hand when you compare it to the Galaxy Note 10+ which
measures in at 7.9mm thick.
So at 7.6mm the Note 20+ is going to be a really thin device and because of that it's
going to look beautiful and will feel great in the hand.
Nobody wants to pay over $1,000 for a device that doesn’t look the part.
Also we have camera specifications of the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20+.
According to South Korean media, the regular Note 20 will have a 12-megapixel main camera,
followed by a 64MP telephoto and another 12MP ultrawide camera.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 20+ is said to feature a 108-megapixel camera and a 12-megapixel
telephoto one, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.
Remember Ice Universe said a few days ago that there will be another sensor on the Note
20+ that will assist in the autofocus.
We finally got to know what that sensor is, and it's a laser autofocus system.
The S20 Ultra was also rumored to have laser autofocus but for some reason it didn't make
the final cut.
The laser autofocus is the fastest autofocus system we have on smartphones, one of the
reasons a lot of smartphone companies don't include it is that it's expensive.
But it seems Samsung doesn't have much choice here.
Even though the autofocus issues have mostly been fixed with software updates on the S20
Ultra but it still experiences some issues here and there and the laser autofocus on
the Note 20+ should eliminate those issues and should also give the fastest autofocus
on a smartphone.
With that being said, let me know what do you think down in the comments and as always
I'll see you tomorrow...Peace out!
