Samsung Galaxy Note20 is the latest smartphone expected to be launched by Samsung from the Galaxy Note series. The three variants are as “Galaxy Note20 ”, “Note20 plus” and this time we might not see any Ultra variant in Note lineup.

  • About the Display, It is said that Note20 comes with a 6.42 -inch dynamic AMOLED display. It was claimed that OLED panels will be built using LTPO backplane technology, which will make it a little costlier because OLED panels are more expensive to produce than the regular and most used IPS-LCD panel.

This provides you the photo and video quality at a satisfactory level. It also provides a 19:5:9 aspect ratio. These display specs provide users a smooth experience.
  • The number of times display hardware updates its buffer in seconds is what we call the refresh rate of a device.
