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 quietly removed this key feature from the Galaxy Watch 7 and Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy Watch Ultra's heart rate sensor.

The Galaxy Watch 7 and the Watch Ultra were launched earlier this week with upgraded internals and a new BioActive Sensor. While the improved sensor is claimed to be more efficient than before, it forced Samsung to remove a key feature previously unique to the Galaxy Watch lineup.

Older Samsung Galaxy Watch models -- including the Galaxy Watch 6 -- could be charged when placed on the back of a Samsung phone that supports wireless charging. This functionality relies on "Wireless power sharing," commonly known as reverse wireless charging, which allows Samsung phones to add battery life to accessories such as earbuds and select Galaxy Watches through wireless charging.

The Galaxy Z Fold has long been Samsung's poster child for "on-the-go productivity." Apart from its communicator-like design, the Galaxy Z Fold's large landscape makes it a multifunctional device that serves both as a phone and a tablet. The phone also supports input via stylus — more specifically, the S Pen — which enhances productivity for creatives and executives alike.

Like older phones in the series, the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 also supports the S Pen. Since Samsung bundles an S Pen along with some of its devices, such as the Galaxy S24 Ultra and the Galaxy Tab S series, it begs the question: Does the Galaxy Z Fold 6 include an S Pen in the box? We'll answer that question below!
