Samsung is all set to launch its flagship smartphone dubbed Galaxy Note 20 lineup. The lineup will offer two devices namely Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. Earlier, we were expecting the chaebol to launch the lineup in a 5G-only variant meaning no more separate LTE devices. Well, this move would have been good considering the devices will become future proof. For those who’re unaware, a 5G smartphone can also support LTE connectivity.
Ahead of the official launch, the Ultra version of the lineup has now appeared on FCC listing. Well, it looks like the device will now also come in LTE-only models as well.
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra to also come in LTE-only version, suggests FCC listing
The Federal Communications Commission listing has mentioned several models of Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. The listing has also confirmed the fact that we will see LTE-5G split across the entire lineup. With that said, the device will indeed arrive with the latest Snapdragon 865+ chipset in the US with a built-in 5G modem dubbed Snapdragon X55M. The LTE-only will have this functionality disabled and these devices will arrive in markets where 5G is not available.

If that’s the case, then it looks like the company is still going with its Galaxy S20 series LTE-5G split. Apart from confirming this, the listing has also confirmed the WiFi 6 support as well. Furthermore, it also confirms that Galaxy Note 20 will launch with Snapdragon 865+ over Exynos in South Korea. The company did the same with its Galaxy S20 lineup for its home market. The listing doesn’t talk about anything else.
A couple of days ago, we saw a report mentioning that Samsung will go with Exynos 990 chipset for the global version of the device. Well, the choice between Exynos over Snapdragon has already received bad criticism from the Galaxy fans. The fans even decided to create a petition asking the brand to use Snapdragon chipset on its flagship devices.
Galaxy Unpacked set for August 5
To recall, the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked will take place on August 5 where the brand will launch a plethora of devices. Apart from Note 20 lineup, we will see Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Tab S7 series, Galaxy Watch along with Galaxy Buds Live. As per the recent report, we might even see the company launching Galaxy Fold 2 contradicting the previous report of unfortunate delay.
