Major improvements in the Galaxy Note 20 range
One of the biggest upgrades in the Note 20 series is on the S Pen, which is both faster and now also works as a navigational tool. The S Pen also expands functionality and will work cross-device with the new Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ tablets, which launched alongside the Note 20 phones.
The phones also feature a stronger focus on gaming, with added Microsoft Xbox integration. Robust performance, enhanced with 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, along with AMOLED displays and 120Hz refresh rates (on the Ultra) will allow a more immersive gaming experience – including the ability to play PC and Xbox games directly on the Note 20 phones.
