The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra name is confirmed, alongside a non-5G model

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra name is confirmed, alongside a non-5G model
Believer it or not, the rumored Galaxy Note 20 Plus or Ultra (whatever Samsung calls it) model without 5G connectivity might indeed be nearing release, as the version was just posted in the FCC database as certified and good for launch.

The 4G LTE-only Galaxy Note 20 goes by the model number SM-N985F, indicating that this is an Exynos version for the international market, and, surprise, surprise, not all carriers abroad have entered the 5G rat race like Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile are having at it here.

As you can see below, the FCC listing clearly lacks 5G frequency support in all the connectivity mentions. Don't be fooled by the UWB abbreviation presence - that's not Verizon's mmWave network, but rather the Ultra Wideband connection that is found on phones like the iPhone 11 series.


Will there be a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?


So far so good, but the SM-N986B model that was supposedly the 5G variant of the LTE version listed above, is again listed in the same way at the FCC, with nary a 5G band mention in sight. 

We'll know more when Samsung releases the phones, but in the meantime MySmartPrice reports that the Galaxy S20 Ultra naming scheme got tangentially confirmed by an Indonesian certification database, where said SM-N985F model number is directly titled as such.
