Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra vs Galaxy S20 Ultra, iPhone 11 Pro Max
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has been just announced, and it'a powerhouse. While it broadly follows the Galaxy S20 Ultra in terms of design, it has even better hardware inside. We have the Snapdragon 865 chipset and an Exynos one to match in all non-US regions accompanied by 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB storage. At the back is situated a triple-camera setup with the same 108MP sensor from the S20 Ultra. S Pen and 5G come off as standard. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will be available starting August 21 with a starting price of $1300.
