In recent years, leaks have meant that most smartphone release events are pointless, but today, today we have something completely unexpected.
That is a video detailing every single feature in the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra which are set to be unveiled by Samsung during Unpacked later today.
The video was produced by AT&T and it showcases 5G iterations of both of the Galaxy Note devices. The video was shared by Karlos Peru, a tech blogger from South America.
Gracias a la Operadora AT&T podemos ver un video promocional de los próximos Galaxy Note 20 series antes del #Unpacked 🤓

The advert reveals that the Galaxy Note 20 series is running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ silicon though generally speaking Samsung uses its own Exynos processors for local iterations of its smartphones.
The Ultra version of the phone sports a 6.9inch Infinity-O, Dynamic AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The base Note 20 has a smaller 6.7inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED+ display but it is unclear if it has a high refresh rate like the Ultra.
The S-pen will now also feature a “pen-to-paper” feel when writing if you’re into that sort of thing.
Moving on to the camera, the Galaxy Note will be capable of shooting video at an 8K (7680 × 4320) resolution.
The base Galaxy Note 20 sports a 64MP camera while the 108MP shooter seen in the Galaxy S20 Ultra returns in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
Space Zoom is another returning feature though in the Galaxy Note series it is significantly parred down. In the Note 20 you get a 30X zoom while the Note 20 Ultra will boast a 50X zoom.
We suspect that the 100X zoom was parred down because, well, it was a silly feature that very few people would use. Was it cool? Yes. Did we use it beyond the initial test? No.
The AT&T video even went so far as to list the battery capacity for the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra – 4 300mAh and 4 500mAh respectively.
This video then, leaves very little for Samsung to showcase today.
There are rumblings that a new Fold, smartwatch, wireless earbuds and tablets will be revealed today so at least AT&T hasn’t shown Samsung’s entire hand.
Regarding those additional devices, if you are looking to upgrade your tech, Samsung Unpacked kicks off at 16:00 local time and we’ll be tuning in to see what Samsung has on offer.
