Ever since the Galaxy S20 series was launched, we’ve been seeing quite a lot of leaks and speculations around the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series. The Note 20 series was leaked extensively in the past and now the renders have been published online based on CAD drawings of the Galaxy Note 20. The renders and a small video clipping of the Note 20 were shared by Pigtou publication in collaboration with David from xLeaks7. The source also claims that the renders have been made on the final design of the smartphone.
According to Pigtou, the dimensions of the device are 161.8 x 75.3 x 8.5 mm, which makes the Galaxy Note 20 just over a half-millimeter thicker than its predecessor Galaxy Note 10. The source also claims that the Galaxy Note 20+ will also launch alongside the Galaxy Note 20. The design of the device itself is not something we haven’t seen! The Galaxy Note 20 in the leaked renders looks like a cross between the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy S20. The device itself is boxy looking with a rectangular non-curvy design like the Galaxy Note 10.
The Galaxy Note 20 comes with a huge display with a center punch-holed front-facing camera, just like its predecessor. The display size of the Note 20 is apparently 6.7-inches contrasting the 6.3-inches display found on the Note 10. The top and the bottom bezels on Note 20 appear much minimal compared to the S20 and Note 10. The main differences here are with the placements of S Pen, volume, and power keys. Note 10 had the buttons for volume and power on the left edge, but Note 20 is believed to come with all the buttons shifted to the right. Also, the S Pen slot has been moved from the bottom right corner to the bottom left corner. The top edge of the phone features a sim tray.
Talking about the back of the device, we can see a huge camera block with four cameras and a flash arranged just like the Galaxy S20. The source says they are not sure about the camera specifics. The back of the device is left plain and we can find the Samsung branding in the lower center of the device. Keep in mind that these renders come from an unknown source, so we recommend you to consider all this with a grain of salt.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to feature a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3040 pixels. The refresh rate of this display is 120 Hz and the aspect ratio is 20:8.
