Leaked renders show what the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ could look like

Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 20+ has been previewed in a fresh set of leaked renders. Shared by OnLeaks in collaboration with Pigtou, the images reveal a familiar, boxy design that’s largely identical to the phone’s predecessor. Its most striking trait is the huge, protruding camera bump on the rear — similar to the existing Galaxy 20 lineup.

Unlike the highest-end Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Note 20+ is said to skip the headlining 100× zoom feature. It will come equipped with three camera lenses and leave out the additional fourth ToF sensor that offers depth assistance for portrait shots.

The hulking camera housing will pop out quite a bit, measuring 10.7 mm at its thickest point. It’s unclear at the moment whether Samsung has figured out the design issue that is causing many Galaxy 20 Ultra phones’ camera coverings to crack and shatter abruptly.

On the front, the Galaxy Note 20 Plus will have few alterations. It will be dominated by an OLED 6.9-inch screen (a hair taller than the Galaxy Note 10’s 6.8-inch panel) that goes nearly edge-to-edge and has a minuscule cutout at the top center for the selfie camera. The set of ports will remain the same as well. It will probably have a USB Type-C port, a slot for the S-Pen stylus, and no headphone jack.

Previous rumors suggest the next Galaxy Note will have a 108-megapixel primary camera, the same one found on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. To mend the autofocusing flaws that have plagued the Galaxy S20, Samsung has reportedly added a new, dedicated sensor.

Another report claimed Samsung will raise the battery capacity to 4,500mAh on the Galaxy Note 20 Plus, 200mAh more than the current Galaxy Note 10 Plus. The Galaxy Note is one of Samsung’s two top-of-the-line phone series and the Galaxy Note 20 Plus will be no exception with a spec sheet to match. We expect it to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest, 5G-enabled Snapdragon 865 chipset in the United States and Samsung’s in-house Exynos 990 in other regions. While Samsung has yet to confirm it, the Galaxy Note 20 phones will likely launch in August at a Galaxy Unpacked event.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5: how to run any app on the cover screen

Samsung recently revealed a slew of new foldables, tablets, and wearables — including the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 — at its Galaxy Unpacked July 2023 event in Seoul, South Korea.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is launching hot on the heels of the Motorola Razr Plus, which has been one of the best folding phones this year. A major perk of the Motorola Razr Plus is the fact that the large 3.6-inch cover screen acts like a regular display, complete with a home screen, quick settings, panels, and the ability to run any Android app.

There’s a big problem with Samsung’s new Android tablets
The back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra.

“Android tablets are a lost cause.” I come across this recurring theme more often than I would like, but there’s some truth to it. As someone who pushes Android tablets as a daily workhorse, I’ve defended on numerous occasions how the ecosystem has matured over the past few years after Android 12L and foldable arrived on the scene.

But compared to the iPad, Android tablets keep falling short. With every brand trying to create its own unique software flavor for tablets that vary dramatically in terms of firepower, no two Android tablets seem to offer a uniform experience. iPads, on the other hand, do deliver experience uniformity irrespective of the screen size.

I used Motorola and Samsung folding phones. Only one gets this feature right
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Motorola Razr Plus folded in hand.

Software plays a crucial role in any device, but it becomes even more important when you have a limited amount of screen space to interact with the user interface. The Motorola Razr series has always been better than the Galaxy Z Flip lineup in terms of usability when folded. This year, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5 closes the gap between the two clamshell foldables by offering a big cover screen.

But sporting a big outer display doesn’t immediately make a flip phone foldable a whole lot more useful; case in point – the Oppo Find N2 Flip, where Oppo gave us six widgets (and added a couple more later) to play around with and called it a day. While Samsung brings 13 widgets to the table, the cover screen software is still not on par with the Motorola Razr Plus.
