Earlier this year, Samsung announced the Galaxy S20 series in the form of Galaxy S20, S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. As you can assume, the Galaxy S20 Ultra was the most impressive, and consequently most expensive, device of the trio. Under the hood, it carried the same Snapdragon 865, but some details like a 5,000mAh battery and Penta-camera setup made the device stand against the competition. Talking about the latter aspect, the device came with a 108MP camera, something that surely attracted the spotlights. Now, Samsung is gearing up to unveil a new smartphone series – The Galaxy Note 20 series – and apparently, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will pack a camera of the same kind.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra story has been quite complicated. At first, we have been hearing a couple of rumors about this handset with some alleged renders popping out. However, all of sudden, reports emerged stating that Samsung had ceased its plans for a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra variant. Now, reports are once again, saying that Samsung will ultimately release the most high-end version of the Note 20 series. Apart from sharing similar specifications with the Note 20+, the Galaxy S20 Ultra now is rumored to come with a 108MP main camera, just like its sibling
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will repeat S20 Ultra formula
The report comes from the very reliable Roland Quandt from Winfuture.de. Of course, this might not be a big surprise, after all, the S20 Ultra undoubtedly has its 108MP as the main selling point. For that reason, even the first rumors were assuming the presence of the very same sensor on the Note 20 Ultra. However, Quandt states that he’s “seen hard evidence” of the presence of a 108MP camera on this smartphone. Given to the tipster’s good track record, the Note 20 Ultra is likely arriving with this sensor.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 "Ultra" ("Canvas2") has a 108MP main cam. I know we knew, but I've seen hard evidence now, so consider it confirmed from my end.

We just hope that this time around, the phone will not present the same issues as the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The high-end flagship had several issues with the camera not focusing properly. Samsung provided several updates to address this issue. However, it wasn’t enough to avoid this camera from being marked as problematic. Despite this fact, we’ll give a vote of confidence to the South-Korean maker. After all, the company is good in learning with its mistakes. The whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco serves as an example.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will go official on August 5 along with the vanilla Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20+. The new 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip is coming as well. However, the highly-anticipated Galaxy Fold 2 will only come in September.
