Pre-orders begin August 6

Samsung on Wednesday announced its its latest phones, the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Scheduled for wide release on August 21, the pre-orders kick off on August 6.

The two phones closely resemble each other in many of the specifications; however, the Ultra version dials things up a little bit in select spots.

The Galaxy Note 20 line feature 120Hz refresh rates, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ processor, 25W fast charging, 15W wireless charging, and support for 5G.
