But back to the standard version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, which will receive a screen with frames wider than the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, while it does not have curvature on the sides, like the bigger model. A fingerprint sensor is built into the screen, at the back there is a rectangular block of the rear camera, which includes three camera sensors, as well as an LED flash.
The following image show the Samsung Galaxy Note20 compared to the GalaxyNote10. An insider confirms that the Samsung Galaxy Note20 will be approximately 1 cm larger in height. Both smartphones are equipped with FullHD + screens with a maximum image refresh rate of 60 Hz.
Samsung does not expect the Note 20 to break sales records
It’s no secret that in the first half of this year, the smartphone market experienced stagnation and falling sales. The coronavirus has done its job and the spread of the pandemic has made Samsung understand all this well. So the company does not have high expectations of high demand for the Galaxy Note 20. At least at the start of sales.
It is reported that this time the South Korean giant decided to show prudence and caution regarding the procurement of components for new smartphones. The volume of component orders from third-party suppliers is low. And all because of projected low sales at the start due to the consequences of COVID-19. Now it is difficult to predict the further development of events and what will be the demand for new products.
Judging by the available information, sales of the Galaxy S20 series did not fail, but they were lower than expected. So, for the first quarter of this year, 3.5 million Galaxy S20+ units were sold. While a year earlier it managed to sell 5.2 million Galaxy S10+. And in total during this period 8.2 million of all devices of the Galaxy S20 line, which includes three models, were sold.
But it is worth making one important note. The series itself debuted in February. And its sales started in March and in fact 8.2 million devices were sold in three weeks of sales.
