Sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 are again below expectations


Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series

Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy S20 series smartphones this spring, but they fell short of the company’s expectations. Most recently, the South Korean giant launched the Galaxy Note 20 line, which was supposed to compensate for the weak sales of the Galaxy S20 series.

Sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 are again below expectations

However, South Korean sources are now reporting that Samsung has cut production of the Galaxy Note 20 smartphone series. This indicates that smartphone sales are again falling short of the company’s expectations.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The report states that the company intended to release 900,000 units of the Note 20 line in October, but only produced 600,000 smartphones. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra model dominates most of the sales while the demand for the Galaxy Note 20 model is still falling more.

The source adds that the company is preparing to begin production of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series smartphones from next month, and the launch batch will include 2 million smartphones.

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra disappoints and takes tenth place in DxOMark

DxOMark specialists have recently published a review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphone. Surprisingly, the new flagship of the Koreans not only did not become the best in the rating of the platform but could not even get around the Galaxy S20 Ultra model, taking only tenth place. The Note 20 Ultra received 130 points for photo quality and 101 points for video. Still, the Note20 Ultra is one of the best camera phones at the moment, and the gap from the leader in the DxOMark rating is only 9 points. And many have questions about this rating.
