Samsung Galaxy Note 20: Leaked specs show larger and sharper displays

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series’ latest leak also suggests that the phones will receive the 120Hz refresh rate found in the Galaxy S20 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is already shaping up to be a serious contender to Apple’s iPhone 12. Well, in the battle of the display specs sheet, according to this leaker.

Ross Young revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 lineup is set to receive massive display upgrades over its predecessors. Young shared that Samsung’s phablets should feature an increase in size, resolution, and refresh rate.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20: Bump on size and resolution

The tipster revealed that the vanilla Galaxy Note 20 should see its display grow from the 6.3-inch panel on the regular Galaxy Note 10 to 6.42-inch. The same can be said when it comes to its resolution. The phone’s 19.5:9 aspect ratio display will reportedly feature a 2,345 x 1,084 resolution, which will then translate into a 404 ppi.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Plus is tipped to arrive with a 6.87-inch display. This is also an increase over its predecessor’s 6.8-inch AMOLED display. The Plus variant of the Galaxy Note 20 series will also receive a bump in terms of display resolution to 2,096 x 1,444.

Consequently, this should provide the phablet with a 497 ppi, which would lead to a sharper 19.3:9 aspect ratio display.

120Hz refresh rate with lower power consumption

Young also revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 phones are slated to feature 120Hz refresh rates. This is the same refresh rate that is currently offered in some variants of the Galaxy S20 series. However, Young noted that the feature would be employed with lower power consumption and a variable refresh rate.

The phablet series’ high display refresh rate should also automatically adjust for applications that support a high refresh rate. This should also be the same for apps that don’t. On paper, this should save the phones’ battery life significantly.

Giving Apple a run for its money

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is also gearing up to be a serious threat to Apple’s iPhone 12. Recent leaks suggested that the company’s upcoming iPhone could get a 120Hz ProMotion display. The feature should also adjust refresh rates between 60Hz and 120Hz.

If the phablets should ever get released on August as predicted, then Samsung could indeed rain on its nemesis’ parade.
