Phone Set Up
In-screen fingerprint sensor
The Samsun Galaxy Note20 5G has a fingerprint sensor built into the display. Ultrasonic technology uses pulses of light to measure the valleys and ridges in your fingerprint. These new types of sensors work almost instantly and are much more accurate than previous types.
The onboard memory is not expandable but you get a choice of either a 128GB or 256GB variant. Either of these will give a decent amount of storage straight out of the box. Photos and videos can also be synced to your OneDrive for saving space on the phone.
Upgraded S Pen
The Galaxy Note brought us the S Pen, the first truly successful pairing of a stylus and smartphone. The new Galaxy Note20 5G has the most powerful S Pen ever seen on a Galaxy phone. Features include:
Screen off memo - add notes or create a to-do list from the lock screen
Screen write - add flourishes to images or make notes on articles you are reading
Audio bookmark - while recording audio, any notes added will be bookmarked at the spot you made them
Notes writing - transform notes on the screen into text and copy and paste with a simple tap
Notes sync - all notes you make automatically save and can be synced to Samsung Notes or Microsoft OneNote
While the S Pen is a great work tool, it also helps you unleash your creativity. Use is just as you would a sketching pencil and create unique pieces of art. You can put them on the PENUP community, a place where you will find inspiration and share your creations with the world.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
The high refresh rate and big 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display give this phone a superb gaming pedigree. It is further bolstered with the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate feature. You can play any time and anywhere with over 100 Xbox games. You can enjoy top titles on the phone and link a wireless controller for ultimate gameplay.
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G has an incredible processor on board. It can handle any task easily with multiple apps or demanding games working in superfast seamless action. The handset includes 5G connectivity so you can download movies or stream TV and superfast speeds over a 5G network. The powerful phone can handle everything you need it to do and so much more.
Camera & Video
The rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G is an impressive triple-lens setup. The camera module is made up of:
64MP telephoto camera
12MP wide lens
The high-resolution 64MP triple camera system helps you to capture amazing video and photo results. With Pro video, you can shoot smooth video and get incredible editing options. Zoom in slowly to closeup, use manual focus or change shutter speed for cinematic video. 8K video recording captures incredible detail so you can put your masterpiece on a cinema-size screen without losing clarity.
When you have finished recording video, you can browse through the action to see if there are any good photo stills. You can pull out 33MP photos from the video timeline for interesting shots you may not have seen as you were filming.
Advanced AI lets you turn one shot into multiple formats. You simply tap the shutter button and the phone records for a few seconds and presents you with different sized photos so you can pick your favourite. Advanced pixel technology takes in more light and gives you so much detail. You can snap a photo, zoom in to 30x, and still see as clearly as the whole picture.
