The latest rumor on the block claims that Samsung will release only two Galaxy Note 20 series models. These will be standard Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus with no "Ultra" model. The information has been shared by Ross Young, CEO and founder of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), who further tweeted some of the display specifications.
When Samsung debuted the Galaxy S20 series earlier this year, it introduced a new Galaxy S20 Ultra model that features everything the company had to offer and is the most expensive to buy. This could lead to speculation that the flagship phablet series may get the same treatment but as clarified by Young, this will not be the case.
He further tweeted that the Galaxy Note 20 Plus will be the only model to offer 120Hz display and the standard Galaxy Note 20 will be limited to the usual 60Hz refresh rate. The "Plus" variant is said to support a high refresh rate but with the use of expensive tech called LTPO. It is a tech that will result in low power consumption as compared to the traditionally used LTPS technology. He has referred LTPO is the best implementation for 120Hz panels.
The Galaxy Note 20 Plus is claimed to sport a 6.8- to 6.87-inch Quad HD+ (3096 x 1444 pixels) display. It will have a pixel density of 497 PPI and a 19.3:9 aspect ratio. He has not shared any details about the standard Galaxy Note 20 yet but it should be either equivalent or smaller than the Pro model.
