The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will have very different upgrades than the Galaxy Note 10

However, are you wondering what the difference will be with the standard Galaxy Note 20 compared to the Note 10? Based on the rumors, here are some comparisons between the Note 20 and Note 10 to help you figure out which device to buy first, or whether to upgrade to the Note 20 if you own the Note 10.


The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has a metal frame with a glass back and a curved screen. It comes in a variety of colors and has an IP68 water and dust resistance rating.

The bottom of the device has an integrated S-Pen stylus, the back of the device has a triple-lens camera cluster in the upper left corner and at the center of the top of the screen is a “mole” front camera.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to have a similar design, once again using the main material is metal and glass, and also has an IP68 water and dust resistance rating. However, it seems to be a bit bigger than the Note 10, and a little thicker.

The S-Pen that comes with the Note 20 will remain in the left corner of the bottom of the device, and the triple-lens camera cluster on the back will remain the same, but stand out more than the rear camera cluster of Note 10.

The front camera “mole” is also reused, meaning the two devices will look very similar when viewed from the front.


Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has a 6.3-inch screen with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, a pixel density of 401ppi. It is HDR10 + certified, and as mentioned in the design section, the screen is curved on both sides.

The Galaxy Note 20 is expected to have a 6.7-inch screen – a bit bigger than its predecessor. The resolution of the Note 20 is 2400 x 1080 pixels, the pixel density of 392ppi and has a refresh rate of 60Hz, like the Note 10.

In addition to the size differences, the Note 20 is also expected to switch to a flat screen instead of being curved. While the curved design looks interesting, the Note 20’s flat screen will be more suitable to use with the S Pen than the Note 10.

Hardware and specifications

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9825 processors depending on the market.

It has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory, but there’s no microSD slot to expand the memory. The battery inside the device has a capacity of 3500mAh, supports fast charging and wireless charging. Note 10 only supports LTE, no 5G version.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus or Exynos 990 processor depending on the market. It also has 8GB of RAM, but the internal memory can be reduced to only 128GB. It is not clear whether the device supports microSD or not.

The Note 20’s battery is expected to increase to 4300mAh, and it will also have a 5G version in addition to the LTE version as last year.


The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has a triple-lens rear camera cluster, including a 12MP main sensor, a 16MP ultra-wide angle sensor, and a 12MP telephoto sensor. It also has a 10MP selfie camera.

The Galaxy Note 20, meanwhile, is expected to have a triple-lens rear camera setup, as seen on both the Galaxy S20 and S20 +. If accurate, this would mean the Note 20 will have a 12MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 64MP telephoto sensor. It will most likely support zom up to 30X.

There has been no information regarding the previous Galaxy Note 20’s camera, but it will not be surprising if it uses the same sensor as the Galaxy S20.


Although currently, everything is based on rumors, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will still bring some worthwhile improvements compared to Note 10.

The processor will be upgraded, and although RAM may not change, only internal memory is affected, many people expect the Note 20 will support microSD and have a higher capacity battery.

Finally, the Note 20’s camera will also get interesting upgrades, and the S Pen will be improved over the previous generation.
