As the video reveals, buyers of the new 5G handset will also receive the S Pen, a pair of AKG earphones, a travel adapter, a data cable, a set of spare eartips, an ejection pin for the SIM/Micro SD tray, and a Quick Start Guide.

It’s a whopper

A phone so big that there may be no pants in the world with a pocket large enough to hold it, the 6.9-inch Galaxy Note 20 Ultra features a camera module with a 108-megapixel main lens, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with a 5x optical zoom. The selfie camera, housed in a hole-punch notch at the top center of the display, will capture your toothy grin at 10 megapixels, while video enthusiasts can use the device to shoot movies at up to 8K resolution.

The Note 20 Ultra, which comes in bronze, black, and white, tips the scales at 208 grams (7.3 ounces), and includes a 4,500mAh battery offering fast charging to 50% capacity after 30 minutes.

Starting at $1,299 for 128GB of storage (expandable to 1 terabyte) and 12GB of RAM, the Note 20 Ultra will be available from August 21, with pre-orders beginning on August 6.

This is the most unusual Galaxy S23 Ultra camera test I’ve ever done
The Galaxy A54 and Galaxy S23 Ultra's camera modules.

Comparing phone cameras is a fine balancing act, where everything from the price of the device to the functionality is considered before taking the first photos. So, under normal circumstances, the Samsung Galaxy A54 would never face the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. After all, they’re worlds apart in both of those areas. So why are you about to see a comparison between the two?

It’s simple. Because they are so different, just how much better or worse is one compared to the other? Or are they closer together than Samsung would like you to think? Let's see if we can save you money or convince you to spend more with one of the most unusual camera comparisons we've done yet.
Just how different are the cameras?

Watch the iPhone 14 Pro destroy this phone with a 200MP camera
White Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus versus white iPhone 14 Pro in camera face-off.

The Redmi Note is one of Xiaomi's bestselling smartphone ranges ever. While it started out by offering reasonably good specifications at great pricing, the lineup has since diversified into countless different models, which are not easy to keep track of. The higher end of the Redmi Note series now leans into the territory of subpremium phones.

We're particularly curious about that 200MP camera and whether it lives up to what the company promises or is just another gimmick.

Galaxy Tab S9+ leaked images

Samsung’s existing slate of Android tablets is one of the finest hardware of its kind, and it appears that the company doesn’t want to stray from the winning formula any time soon. Leaker @OnLeaks has shared renders of the Galaxy S9 Plus, and they bear a striking similarity to its Galaxy Tab S8 series predecessor.

The sleek metallic build with sharp edges is here to stay, and so is the contrasting magnetic strip at the back. The bezel size also remains familiar, while the horizontally positioned selfie camera is once again positioned at the same spot.
