Samsung has got its first big flagship launch of the year out of the way so the company can now focus on what’s due in the second half of 2020. Fans of the company are already looking forward to the Galaxy Note 20, which might be what Samsung ends up calling the device after it shook up its naming strategy with the Galaxy S20. The company already has the Galaxy Note 20 in development, that’s not going to surprise anybody, but it appears that the company might revert to 128GB of base storage on the upcoming device.

We hear that the SM-N981, one of the models of the Galaxy Note 20, will feature 128GB of base storage. For the sake of comparison, the Galaxy Note 10 5G (N971) featured 256GB of internal storage. The Galaxy Note 10 may feature 256GB of internal storage but it doesn’t have a microSD card slot. It’s only the Galaxy Note 10+ that does. So Samsung may have decided to reduce the amount of internal storage offered on the base model of its next flagship smartphone.

There’s a good chance the Galaxy Note 20 will have a microSD card slot

That obviously bodes well for the presence of a microSD card slot on the Galaxy Note 20 since it would be unwise to limit a flagship smartphone to just 128GB of storage in this day and age. It also wouldn’t make sense because many of the camera upgrades that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S20 will undoubtedly make their way to the Galaxy Note 20. The handset is going to need a significant amount of space to store large photos and 8K video from the new cameras.

It’s unclear at this point in time if Samsung is going to launch three separate variants of the Galaxy Note 20, particularly if it wants to accommodate everything that the Galaxy S20 Ultra offers into the Galaxy Note 20 lineup. It’s safe to assume that there will at least be two which will succeed the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+. We expect to have more clarity on the Galaxy Note 20 lineup in the coming days. There will obviously be many leaks before the handset is due to arrive. If history is any indication, the Galaxy Note 20 lineup should be announced around August this year.
