Technical blogger Ross Young is back with more details on the series of Galaxy Note 20 from Samsung. He has already covered some of the details of the screen including the refresh rate of 120 Hz, and now he says the next series may be the first phones to adopt Qualcomm's new 3D fingerprint reading technology.
The upcoming fingerprint scanners are expected to create 17x more sensor space than before, and it will cover 20mm x 30mm area, knowing that the typical reader is only 4mm x 9mm. The sensor of Max can scan two fingerprints simultaneously, which increases the level of security.
Young and his team believe that Samsung will stick to the design of the center hole in the middle of the screen to house the front camera, either in the standard version or Plus. He also indicates that the LTPO technology that will be used on the screen is good because it saves 5-15% of battery power, but since it requires an additional transistor per pixel, it is difficult to create HD DPI screens. In fact, the first LTPO screens were relatively low resolution and were used on smart watches.
Galaxy Note 20 Specs
The Galaxy Note 20 will come with 16 GB of RAM for the basic version, according to the analyst, which is an increase from 12 GB over the previous generation. The battery capacity will range from 4000 to 5000 mAh, slightly higher than the Note 10.
In the previous interview, Young focused on the rumors of Galaxy Fold 2. In this video, he touched on that again, saying that other companies will adopt Samsung's approach of offering a price-effective clamshell foldable phone like the Z Flip as well as a premium flagship tablet-sized model like the Galaxy Fold. Huawei is expected to launch two phones in the same way, but it is currently stuck in an attempt to discover whether the larger device will come with a toughened glass design or No.
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 20 and Fold 2 in early August and put them on sale later that month, and this is the expected launch date anyway.
We do not yet know whether the screen of the upcoming flagship series phones from Samsung will outperform the iPhone 12 series screen, where iPhone 12 is expected to come with OLED Super Retina display
