Samsung Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20+ and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones are expected to be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event held on August 5 next week. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a top-of-the-line phone. As in the past, this product is expected to be launched with Exynos SoC and Snapdragon processors (in some markets). In the latest development, the Exynos version of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has been found on Geekbench, and it is reportedly not as good as Snapdragon.
According to the Geekbench list first discovered by MySmartPrice, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with the model number Samsung SM-N986B scored 928 in the single-core test and 2,721 in the multi-core test. The list also indicates that the smartphone will be equipped with the company’s proprietary Exynos 990 processor and equipped with up to 12GB of RAM. The smartphone can run directly on Android 10. According to PhoneArena’s report, the Snapdragon variant with model SM-G986U scored 985 and 3220 points in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung has launched two types of smartphones in different regions: one uses Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, and the other uses Exynos processors. According to media reports, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will use the Snapdragon 865+ mobile platform in certain countries/regions such as the United States, and in most countries/regions, the phones are equipped with Exynos 990 SoC.
This development was proposed two days after YouTuber leaked @@Galox_’s Twitter vulnerability, which indicated that the Exynos 990 processor of the Galaxy Note 20 series will be an improved version of the Exynos 990 SoC seen in the Galaxy S20 series. The prompter continues to say that this will be an improved version of Exynos 990 SoC, and may have better optimizations than its Snapdragon similar products.
According to the prompt, the processor will be “like Exynos 990+ SoC”, but Samsung will continue to name it Exynos990. He also claimed that the Exynos 990 SoC will “run as fast and as fast as Snapdragon.” . However, the difference in the Geekbench score of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra mentioned above is a different story. We will have to wait a few days to see what happens in the future.
In another related story, Samsung Electro-Mechanics, a subsidiary of the Korean giant’s flagship smartphone that is said to provide cameras, will provide cameras with optical image stabilization for the Galaxy A series of smartphones. According to a report by the South Korean publication The Elec, the head of Samsung Electronics technology stated in the second quarter earnings conference call that the company’s high-resolution cameras will enter Samsung’s mid-range mobile phone market.
“The adoption of high-performance multi-camera modules for smartphones is expanding to mid-range (mid-priced) products. We are considering entering high-performance camera modules for mid-range smartphones. We will expand our business scale by ensuring price competitiveness,” Pei Guangxu Say. This may mean that the A-series smartphones in 2021 will be equipped with high-resolution cameras, and we may also see such cameras in flagship models.
