Wield new powers with the Galaxy Note20

Ready to work

The Galaxy Note20 may be the “smaller” of Samsung’s Note20 models, but it’s hardly unnoticeable. Its 6.7-inch Infinity-O Display is the vivid showpiece of the device, complete with flattened edges to avoid accidental touches on the sides, and extra brightness for easier viewing.

Support for HDR10+ gives the display the ability to show rich colours and deep blacks for the ultimate visual experience, no matter what you’re looking at. The front-facing 10-megapixel camera looms in its own hole-punch cutout and stays inconspicuous most of the time.

The Glasstic back is smooth and easy to hold, maintaining a refined a look, even if it doesn’t match the Gorilla Glass 7 used in the Galaxy Note20 Ultra. The matte finish keeps fingerprints at bay, and lets the eclectic colours shine in their own way. The obvious rear camera array complements the mystic black, mystic green and mystic bronze designs for a premium look and feel.

Getting around with the S Pen

The S Pen gets more upgrades with the Galaxy Note20, starting with how much better it feels to write onscreen. Lower latency of 26ms means the screen captures every pen stroke with greater speed and accuracy than on previous Note smartphones.

That means faster and more accurate notes, as well as more efficient access. Convert handwritten notes to text you can edit on programs like Microsoft Word. Write on PDFs or sign documents with ease. Doodle or draw with the kind of precision an artist would expect on any canvas.

You can take the S Pen further by using it for Air Actions or Anywhere Command. Click the pen’s button to control media playback or try some of the new gestures to navigate to the home screen or select from the most recently opened apps. Click the button close to the screen and select from the menu of choices to take notes, create GIFs or doodle a Live Message or AR Doodle to send to friends.

Turn it into a mobile gaming machine

The Galaxy Note20 also has gamers in mind through a new partnership with Microsoft and Xbox. The Samsung Galaxy Store gets an exclusive version of Xbox Game Pass that adds special in-game items and purchases not available on other smartphones.

An Xbox Game Pass subscription gives you access to games available on Microsoft’s xCloud streaming service. That lets you play Xbox One and Xbox Series X games without having to play them on a console at home, including popular titles, like Gears of War 5 and Forza Horizon 4.

The phone’s own Screen Recorder feature can record your gameplay with picture-in-picture for instructions or commentary. You can then share or post it for others to see. Putting the Galaxy Note20 onto the right controller could make this phone feel like having a mini-console in the palms of your hands.

Ready for 5G connectivity

The Galaxy Note20 comes with a 5G-enabled modem, putting it at the forefront of the next generation of wireless technology. When you can connect to a 5G network, you may see speeds several times faster than current LTE networks. That means higher-resolution video, quicker downloading and the ability to livestream with less buffering.

As 5G continues to evolve, the Galaxy Note20 will be able to benefit from the additional coverage and bandwidth, turning it into one of the fastest pocket-sized computers anyone can wield.
