While everyone was hoping to see Snapdragon chipset on the global variants of Galaxy Note 20 lineup, Samsung decided to stick with its Exynos counterpart. The lineup will make use of Exynos 990 chipset in global markets except for South Korea and of course, the United States. Samsung has already received huge backlash for using Exynos chipset on its flagship devices. In fact, many fans out there decided to create a petition on the same.
Samsung has heavily optimized Exynos 990 for its Galaxy Note 20 series!
Well, it looks like Samsung is going to heavily optimized its Exynos 990 SoC for the upcoming phablet. According to the new rumors, the South Korean giant is planning to improve the Exynos 990 chipset to an extent where it has better thermals than that of Snapdragon 865+ chipset. What’s interesting is the fact that it still delivers the same level of performance.
The source further claims that the improved chipset is more like an Exynos 990+ but without the branding of course. For those who’re unaware, Samsung’s shareholders recently questioned the brand for its decision to stick with Exynos on flagship phones. This new improvement makes sense considering the huge backlash the brand faced earlier. If the new improved chipset is real, then Samsung will market the Exynos 990 for Galaxy Note 20 to be better as well.
To recall, the decision of Exynos 990 SoC for the international market made many fans disappointed. In fact, the chipset might have been a deal-breaker for many potential buyers as well. The improved performance might convince them to stick around.
You will have to premium as well!
Ahead of the official launch, the device has already been leaked numerous times revealing specs, design, and much more. We recently saw the European pricing of the product appearing online. As per the leak, the lineup will start from EUR 999 (i.e. $999). This pricing is for the LTE variant that will miss out on numerous features such as next-gen S-Pen, 2120Hz refresh rate, microSD expansion, and latest Gorilla Glass protection.
For those who’re unaware, the Galaxy Note 20 will act as the Note 20 Lite while the Note 20 Ultra is going to be a true flagship successor. The Ultra will also naturally cost higher. It is expected to be priced the same as that of the S20 Ultra 5G launch price.
