Samsung’s Unpacked event tomorrow will be the official showcase for the heavily rumored and much leaked Galaxy Note 20. For those who wanted yet another take a full look at the phone before it is revealed, an AT&T promotional video shows almost every inch of the device and even describes the main specs and new features.
The video, which appeared on Twitter courtesy of South American tech blogger Karlos Peru, seems to have been prepared as a piece of marketing material to promote the new phone and the larger Ultra variant. It doesn’t tell us anything groundbreaking that we didn’t already know or suspect about Samsung’s upcoming extra-large phones, but it’s pretty amazing that a video with so much information and detail shows up before an official announcement.
The video details, of course, the two phones – the standard Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, both of which will have 5G capabilities. It also details the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor and the Ultra version’s 6.9-inch Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED 2X display, said to have a resolution of 3200 x 1440 with a variable refresh rate up to 120 Hz. The video even shows the difference between the screens of the two devices, with the standard version being a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen.
The video goes through the new S Pen, a Microsoft Office stylus integration for Word and PowerPoint, 8K video capabilities, the 64-megapixel camera on the standard Note 20 and 108-megapixel for the Ultra variant and 30x Space Zoom (50x for the Ultra ). If you’re wondering what the battery size is, this commercial has it too. According to the video, the standard Note 20 has a battery of 4,300 mAh, while the Ultra has a battery of 4,500 mAh. Finally, the video also describes the color options: mystic green, mystic gray and mystic bronze for the standard; mystic bronze, mystic black and mystic white for the Ultra.
This actually all matches what we expect to see tomorrow. But then again, it’s still a bit confusing to see such extensive leaks prior to an official product event, and it’s pretty clear at the moment that Samsung doesn’t have a good way of including things like this unless it’s its approach to events, marketing and perhaps even internal design and manufacturing.
