The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra is the premium handset in the Note20 line-up. This flagship smartphone offers users top-tier specs, exceptional performance and plenty of exciting features to enjoy.
From a long-lasting, 4,500 mAh battery to 5G connectivity and a triple-lens camera system that can capture professional-grade video footage, the Note20 Ultra has plenty to cover.
We unpack its top five features right here.
1 - Display
Built to be more versatile than a conventional smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra features a huge 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display, with Quad HD+ resolution. Its capacitive touchscreen can achieve up to 16 million colours, and bezels are kept to a bare minimum, so you can enjoy a widescreen, cinematic viewing experience in the palm of your hand. Plus, with a 120Hz refresh rate, you’ll enjoy seamless transitions and smooth motion graphics, whether you’re watching boxsets, gaming on the go or scrolling through your social feed.
Those with clumsy hands needn’t worry, as the screen on the handset is coated in the toughest glass ever to be used on a smartphone - Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Discretely inserted behind this display is an Ultrasonic Fingerprint scanner, so you can securely unlock your handset by placing the pad of your finger on the screen – no passcode required.
2 - Camera
Mounted on the rear of the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra in a sleek rectangular panel, you’ll find the cutting-edge triple-lens camera system, made up of one 12MP ultra-wide lens, one 108MP wide lens and a final 12MP telephoto camera. The ultra-wide lens onboard is ideal for capturing scenic landscapes or fitting the whole gang into a group shot, while the telephoto lens will let you close right in for macro images without compromising on clarity – there’s even 50x Super Resolution Zoom, enhanced by AI. Night Mode uses intelligent nona-binning to give you accurate colour and crisp detail in dim settings.
As for video recording, this handset can capture footage in an incredible 8K resolution, and paired with Super Steady mode’s optical image stabilisation, you’ll get professional, cinematic film every time. Once you’ve finished filming, you can edit to your heart’s content in the editing suite, and if you find the perfect shot within your film roll, you’ll be able to extract individual frames as 33MP photographs.
3 - S Pen
A signature element of the Galaxy Note series, the S Pen transforms this handset into a versatile piece of tech that you can use for work, as well as for play. You’ll find the S Pen tucked away in the bottom left of the device, and can be accessed by gently pushing the base of the pen inwards, until it’s released. Designed to respond accurately to even the most precise strokes, it can convert your handwriting into text in seconds, so you can copy and paste your notes into an email or word document with ease.
When you connect via Bluetooth, the S Pen can also be used as a remote control for your smartphone’s camera. Set your handset up to take a shot, step back into the line of sight and hit the shutter button on the pen to take a handsfree selfie.
4 - 5G
One of the key highlights of this handset is that it’s 5G-ready, letting you make the most of the UK’s fifth generation network. That means minimal lag time, low latency and a reliable, high-quality connection, whether you’re on a video call or playing a graphics-intensive game.
Speaking of games, 5G will also let you make the most of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – a subscription that grants you access to over 100 of your favourite Xbox games. A 5G connection will elevate your smartphone gaming experience to the next level; you can enjoy Sea of Thieves, Final Fantasy VII and many others while you’re commuting or waiting for a friend – no console required.
5 - Battery
Fuelling the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra is a massive 4,500 mAh non-removable cell - the biggest battery currently available in a smartphone, giving you up to a full day's usage from a single charge. This battery intelligently uses your power as efficiently as possible, so you’ll always have battery for the things you love.
You can power up without any cords or cables via Fast Wireless Charging 2.0, so long as you’ve got a Qi-certified wireless charger (sold separately). However, this handset is also capable of charging back up to 100% in just one hour with the 25W Super Fast charger, included in the box. Wireless PowerShare technology is also on board, so you can quickly transfer charge to one of your other devices, like your Galaxy Buds, or even a friend’s smartphone.
