Samsung rumored to have set 2019 prices for the Galaxy Note 20 series
The Galaxy Note 20 series will be priced almost exactly the same as the Galaxy Note 10 lineup when it debuted last year, according to a recent rumor by Yonhap citing industry sources. Specifically, the base Galaxy Note 20 model will presumably hit the shelves in South Korea for 1.199 million won ($998), whereas the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will cost 1.452 million won ($1,209). The source doesn’t specify if the the $1,209 price tag corresponds to the 256GB or 512GB model.
In contrast, the Galaxy Note 10 was released in South Korea last year for the price equivalent of around $992. The Galaxy Note 10+ with 256GB of storage was sold for around $1,160, while the 512GB model with 5G connectivity costed roughly $1,240. This should mean that Galaxy Note 20 prices will reflect the Galaxy Note 10 prices outside of South Korea as well.
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra offers more meaningful upgrades
The Galaxy Note 20 series has leaked in all its glory this week and we have a fairly accurate image of what the duo has in store for customers. Simply put, the Galaxy Note 20 offers a newer chipset, a flat display which should be considered a plus for an S Pen device, and an upgraded rear-facing camera setup.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the star of the show, having been gifted a new AMOLED display capable of a 120Hz refresh rate, a periscope telephoto lens able to achieve 50x hybrid zoom, as well as a 108MP wide camera. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is also said to be the world’s first smartphone to adopt Gorilla Glass 7 screen protection, but as yet it’s unclear whether this feature will be present on the base model.
Evidently, prices have not been set in stone, at least not officially. These rumors may or may not be accurate but we’re inclined to believe that they are. We’ll find out soon enough at Galaxy Unpacked 2020. Stay tuned.
