Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ leak completely reveals design

Bigger than ever!

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ shall be the South Korean brand’s second flagship of 2020 and is months away from launching. But in-line with the industry trend, leaks are all over the place. The Note series is known for its huge display and Samsung is going to make it slightly bigger.

A new leak from OnLeaks in collaboration with Pigtou, shows the complete design of Note 20+. While the design language looks familiar, it has some drastic changes. On the rear are three cameras within a thick module alongside a ToF sensor. It looks similar to the S20 Ultra camera module setup. Though, a recent report has negated the claim about a ToF sensor, stating that Samsung could ditch it.

Unlike the Note 10, the successor has curved edges instead of a flat display. There’s barely any bezels and the chins are trimmed drastically. Going by the render, the phone feels like a slab of display in one’s hand. However, the company has retained a tiny cut-out in the display to house the front camera.

It will have a slightly larger 6.9-inch display compared to the Note 10+’s 6.8-inch display. The power and volume buttons are housed on the right side while the USB-C port, speaker grille, and the S-Pen slot reside at the bottom. However, a 3.5mm headphone jack is gone.

The phone is expected to launch in August. It’ll be powered by a flagship processor like the Snapdragon 865. We also expect to see a display with 120Hz refresh rate. There’s no doubt the phone will be a true flagship and continue Samsung’s mobility legacy.

NieR Replicant is the most anticipated sequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG, NieR Automata. This prequel delves into a darker world that sees you going on a quest for a cure. Also, joining you in this quest is Grimoire Weiss in search for the “Sealed Verses.” For Automata players, you may be familiar with it as he appears as downloadable content for the game.
