Fresh Galaxy Note 20 5G leak details serious downgrades including plastic build
A flat display with a lower resolution and refresh rate
The information provided today corroborates recent reports and leaked imagery by claiming the Galaxy Note 20 boasts a bigger 6.7-inch AMOLED display. Unfortunately, it only supports a 60Hz refresh rate and settles for a lower 2400 x 1080p resolution.
Samsung has made curved edges a trademark feature on its flagship smartphones for years, but that ends with the Galaxy Note 20. The selected panel is completely flat and lands coupled with a small punch hole and slightly thicker bezels than its Ultra-branded counterpart.
These changes coincide with a small name change, according to tipster Ishan Agarwal. Whereas recent displays have been marketed as Dynamic AMOLED implementations, this one will be marketed as a ‘Super AMOLED+’ display.
Less advanced camera setup and a plastic rear
The downgrades continue when the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is turned over. Although the camera module is visually similar to that of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, it ditches the new laser autofocus system entirely.

Keeping things running is a 4,300mAh battery which supports an unspecified fast charging tech that enables a 50% charge in only 30 minutes. Wireless charging and reverse wireless charging are on board too.
For those of you wondering, there is no headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 20 either.
