Samsung’s Galaxy Note series started out as business-focused devices, promising tools for productivity including the instantly familiar S Pen stylus. The series has been recognized, and often derided, for pushing screen sizes though what seemed impractical a few years ago is now quite mainstream. Of late though, Samsung has turned the Galaxy Note series into a premium flagship lineup, with a roughly six-month gap between Galaxy Note and Galaxy S series launches.
This year’s Galaxy Note 20 series is being billed as “the best of the best”, with all the latest features and specifications, plus of course the S Pen. There are two different models like last year.
This is, first of all, a very large phone. It has a 6.9-inch screen, and narrow borders don’t help a lot when it comes to reducing bulk. At 208g, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a bit heavier than average but it’s the bulk and overall shape that make this phone difficult to use. The top and bottom are completely flat, while the sides are rounded. I found the lower corners digging into my palms when holding this phone.
A new dawn in display technology: the foldable Infinity Flex Display.
A stunning 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display that defies expectations. Made of a revolutionary polymer material layered for slim flexibility, it’s the largest Galaxy smartphone screen yet.1*You may notice a crease at the center of the main screen; this is a natural characteristic of the screen.
The articulated spine makes folds smooth and graceful.
An engineering marvel inspired by the precision of watch mechanics, the hinge delivers symmetrical movement that gently locks in place. So Galaxy Fold intuitively folds like a book.
Sleek colors to match your style.
A one-of-a-kind phone deserves unique, premium colors to match, like monochromatic Space Silver and Cosmos Black.*Model and color availability may vary depending on country or carrier.
