We can’t wait to hear our customers’ feedback”.



Galaxy Note20 Series

Galaxy Note20 series—the most powerful Note series yet—is a productivity powerhouse that works like a computer and lets you game like a pro. The series comes in two versions: Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, designed for Note fans who demand the ultimate in power and productivity, and Galaxy Note20, for broader Note users looking to maximise their time for work and play. Both are built for efficiency, so you have more time to stay connected with the people you love.



Power to Work

Galaxy Note20 series transforms the way you work—empowering you to do more anytime from anywhere so you can take your productivity to the next level. Since 2011, Galaxy Note’s signature S Pen and Samsung Notes have been evolved to provide a natural pen-to-paper writing experience that is digitally supercharged. These core Note features are expanded even more on Galaxy Note20 series, and are also implemented onto Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ for more powerful experiences. Plus, a deeper relationship with Samsung’s long-standing partner, Microsoft, makes Galaxy Note20 and your Windows PC seamlessly work together.


  • An Advanced S Pen: A favourite among Note loyalists and multitaskers, the Galaxy Note20 series’ enhanced S Pen offers the ultimate writing experience so you can capture your ideas, whenever inspiration strikes. Galaxy Note20 series has more lifelike precision than ever that gives you unparalleled accuracy and responsiveness. The S Pen’s new Anywhere actions feature makes navigating easier no matter which app you’re using. For example, if you want to return to the home screen, simply press the upper button on your S Pen.
  • More Flexible and Useful Samsung Notes Experience: We need tools designed to let us work from anywhere, anytime, on any device. To help you capture, edit and share your ideas across your phone, tablet or PC, Samsung Notes features auto-save and syncing capabilities, reducing the risk of lost work. Samsung Notes automatically converts your messy handwriting into legible penmanship. Giving feedback on the go is also easy now that you can edit, annotate and highlight PDFs or Microsoft PowerPoint presentations in Samsung Notes. Use the new option to record audio as you jot down notes, and just tap a word in your notes to go to that moment in the recording. And keep it all organised with a new, intuitive folder management that makes everything easier to find.
  • Work Smarter Across Devices: With upgraded Link to Windows[1], you can now easily access your mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC without disrupting your flow. Later in the year, you will have the ability to run multiple apps side by side on your PC. Create shortcuts on your Windows 10 PC so you never have to search your phone for favourite SNS apps and Gallery. And all your productivity ecosystems are aligned across devices when Samsung Notes syncs to Microsoft OneNote and Outlook and your Reminders sync with Microsoft Outlook, To Do and Teams[2] so everything you need is at your fingertips, no matter where you are.


Power to Play

Samsung is also bringing its Microsoft partnership to the entertainment side of Galaxy Note20 series, taking virtual play to the next level. Fully immerse yourself in the most powerful mobile gaming experience Samsung has ever engineered into a smartphone, so you can game like a pro from your couch, backyard, or around the house. Galaxy Note20 series comes packed with next-level performance, connectivity and our best display yet. Plus, Galaxy Note20 series packs pro-grade tools to capture stunning photos and create cinematic videos and offers advanced multitasking experiences.


    • Your favourite Xbox games on Galaxy Note20 series: Play your favourite PC and console games with Game Pass Ultimate,[3] which offers instant access to a curated library of more than 100 popular games from the cloud including Minecraft Dungeons, Forza Horizon 4, and Gears of War 5: Ultimate Edition later this year. Every level and battle is powered by hyper-fast, ultra-low latency 5G[4] and Wi-Fi 6 with optimised gaming latency. Plus, with a large and immersive display with smooth gaming experience thanks to the fastest processor in a Galaxy yet, Galaxy Note20 series is a pro-gaming set-up that fits in your pocket.
    • Cinematic Filmmaking in the Palm of Your Hand: With 21:9 aspect ratio and 24fps recording, Galaxy Note20 series’ 8K camera now gives you access ultra-high resolution and a professional quality video experience. Use powerful Pro Video mode with pro-grade focus, audio, exposure, lighting, zoom tools, and 120fps shooting at FHD options for cinematic-style videos. New Laser Auto-Focus Sensor[5] on Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G has fast and accurate focusing, plus Live Focus Video gives your shots real world depth. Pro lenses and advanced Space Zoom allow you to photograph scenes in gorgeous detail. You can also control and adjust the Galaxy Note20 mic directions where you want sound to come through clearly. Paired with Galaxy Buds Live, you can record crystal-clear audio no matter how much noise is in the background[6].


  • Master Multitasking with Advanced Samsung DeX: For the first time with Samsung DeX, wirelessly connect Galaxy Note20 series to a Smart TV[7] when you need a bigger screen. Manage two screens simultaneously with Galaxy Note20 and a TV screen, so you can text with your friends while gaming or get their feedback in real-time while sharing your latest video masterpiece.


Galaxy Legacy of Power and Performance

The Galaxy Note has cemented its status as the ultimate power phone. Galaxy Note20 series continues that legacy as the most powerful Note series yet to give you all the things you know, love, and expect from Galaxy.


Galaxy Note20 series is built with the fastest processor of all Galaxy devices. It features cutting-edge technology and best-in-class mobile experiences, without sacrificing the iconic, timeless and durable design. Both Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra 5G introduce a new Mystic Bronze colour – soft neutral tones that transcend changing trends.


For the first time in the Note series, Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G offers the vivid and bright Dynamic AMOLED 2X display and 120Hz adaptive refresh rate delivering breathtakingly smooth visuals on our best screen yet, which automatically adjusts to the content you are viewing to extend your battery life. Sport an all-day intelligent battery[8] and super-fast charging capabilities so you never have to worry about running out of power.


Take advantage of Samsung’s 5G leadership and deliver next-level power for everything you love to do thanks to hyper-fast, ultra-low latency 5G[9]. Galaxy Note20 series automatically searches and recommends high speed networks and provides stable Wi-Fi 6 networks with optimised latency for various streaming services. You can be confident your Galaxy Note20 series hardware and software is secured end-to-end thanks to Samsung Knox.


For the first time on a Galaxy device with UWB, Nearby Share will reach a new level of quick and easy sharing. By simply pointing the Note20 Ultra 5G to another UWB enabled Galaxy device[10], Nearby Share will automatically list the people you’re facing on to the top of your sharing panel. Future UWB functionality will also help you find things more accurately with AR technology and unlock your home as a digital key.
