While the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G was first launched on the 21st of August 2020, it is still one of the most loved phones available today. It is one of the rare phones where it is hard to mention something that isn’t great about this phone. One of the rare cons of owning this device is its starting price, which is $1199. You could argue that it is a luxury phone, but it can’t be denied that it is way expensive. The phone comes in three different colors, Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black, and Mystic White. The Samsung device comes in four variants. The first variant has 8 GB of RAM with 256 GB of internal storage. All other variants have 12 GB of RAM but differ in terms of internal storage offered (128 GB/ 256 GB/ 512 GB).
If you want to increase your phone’s storage, you can do so by inserting an SD card. However, the device has a hybrid card slot. The device has room for two physical Nano-SIM cards. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G also supports an e-SIM, but you can’t use two physical SIM cards along with an e-SIM at the same time. In terms of connectivity, the phone supports 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G. The performance delivered by the Exynos 990 processor is super smooth. Mali-G77 MP11 GPU handles the gaming and graphic requirements of the phones.
The device runs Android 10 out-of-the-box, but it is now upgradable to Android 11. The user interface used here is One UI 3.0. The multimedia experience on this phone is amazing, to say the least. The phone has a 6.9 inches Dynamic AMOLED screen that is protected by the top-of-the-line Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Besides, the device has a 120 Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support that make your multimedia experience even better. The back of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Staying on the topic of protection, the phone has a stainless-steel frame and IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
The phone weighs 208 grams and measures 6.49, 3.04, and 0.32 inches in height, width, and thickness respectively. The device is heavy and using it with one hand is uncomfortable. These can be looked upon as one of the rare disadvantages of owning this device. You will also get an awesome stylus with the phone that helps you a lot in staying productive. In the sound department, the phone has stereo speakers and high-resolution audio but lacks the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Coming to cameras, the phone has a 108 MP wide-angle camera, a 12 MP periscope telephoto camera, and a 12 MP ultrawide camera on the back. The rear camera set-up can record videos in 8K, 4K, 1080p, and 720p. The 10 MP wide-angle selfie camera, on the other hand, can record videos in 4K and 1080p. The camera performance is brilliant, just as you would expect from a Samsung Note series smartphone. However, the camera bump is quite big which may not impress everyone.
What will probably impress you is the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G. For most users, it would last for almost one and a half days on a single charge. The phone has a 4500 mAh lithium-ion non-removable battery that supports 25W fast charging. It also supports 15W Fast Qi/PMA wireless charging and 4.5W wireless charging. For communication, the device has USB Type-C 3.2, USB On-The-Go, NFC, GPS, and Bluetooth 5.0. Besides, it has dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, and a hotspot.
