Not just any smart device will do. Samsung understands that, which is why the company is releasing the new Samsung Note 20 and Samsung Note 20 Ultra. These devices not only run smoothly, but offer a host of added goodies for every techie out there.
Letâ€™s take a look.
Galaxy Note 20
Samsungâ€™s upcoming Galaxy Note 20 5G is a fantastic smartphone for those who like huge screens. Its screen comes in at 6.7 inches with a resolution of 2,400x1080, which runs at 60Hz. Underneath the screen is a fingerprint sensor, which allows users to unlock the phone by simply touching the screen.
On the back of the phone is the camera setup. This consists of one 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, one 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, and one 64-megapixel 3x telephoto camera that does not reduce image quality when zooming in.

All in all, this setup will please both the aspiring photographer and selfie lover alike.

Grab the S Pen
Unlike other smartphones, both the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy 20 Ultra feature the S Pen stylus. This stylus has many useful features, such as being able to handwrite on the screen and then turning what has been written into a text message or a PowerPoint presentation.
Perfect for Students
New gestures include going back to the home screen, going back to a previous page, or viewing recent apps.
Students also benefit from the S Pen because they can use it to write down notes of a lecture; once this is done and a recording of what the lecturer has said has been saved, the student can then tap on notes they have taken and hear a recording of what the lecturer has said.
Also for Selfie Lovers!
Another feature of the S Pen includes being able to take selfies without as much worry over dropping the phone. When taking selfies alone or with friends, all that has to be done is for the phone to be held out with one hand while using the other to press the button on the S Pen to take the picture.
