- Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ has received 3C certification
- The Galaxy Note 20+ is expected to be launched in August
- The phone is tipped to get a 6.9-inch display
We're months away from the launch of Samsung's next big release, the Galaxy Note 20 series. Yet, rumours about the line-up, especially the Note 20+ seem to be coming in thick and fast. The phone is tipped for launch in August 2020, and now ahead of its launch, we have our hands on some new information about the device.
While a number of key details about the device had already leaked online, a new CCC certification has given an insight into previously unkown aspects of the Note 20+. As per news reports, a new variant of the Galaxy Note 20+ (SM-N9860) has made it to CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) certification process, thereby revealing important information such as support for 5G networks and 25W (9V/2.77A PD or 11V/2.25A PPS) fast wired charging for the phone.
As per a report by SamMobile, the phone's charging was tested using Samsung's EP-TA800 charger, which supports USB-PD and PPS. Sadly though, the certification does not reveal much else about the device. However, that's not really a bummer considering we have previously been exposed to a number of leaks that have revealed a lot of the other features and specifications about the device.
Earlier, CAD-based renders of the device had appeared online which also revealed the design of the phone. The renders a design that borrows heavily from the Galaxy S20 series. On the front, the Galaxy Note 20+ is shown to bring slight curves and a boxy design -- something we've previously seen on Galaxy S20 Ultra and even the Galaxy Note 10 last year. Interestingly, the renders also claim the same placement for the S-Pen on the device. This is quite surprising as previous leaks have suggested the smaller Galaxy Note 20 could switch the location of the S-Pen on the phone. The new leak about the phone also reveals that the Galaxy Note 20+ will have dimensions at 165mm long, 77.2mm wide and 7.6mm thick.
As for the specs, OnLeaks claims the Galaxy Note 20+ will bring a rather big display at 6.9-inches. This will be bigger than the one found on the Galaxy Note 10+ which came with a 6.8-inch display. Reports in the past have suggested that the Galaxy Note 20+ could come with a 120Hz mode for faster refresh rates. Additionally, reports claim the panel on the phone will be built using LTPO tech.
We have also read reports that the Galaxy Note 20 will come with a powerful new processor that will be faster and more power-efficient than anything Samsung phones have seen in the past. A report by ZDNet Korea has all but confirmed that instead of equipping the Galaxy Note 20 devices with the Snapdragon 865, 865 Plus, or its in-house Exynos 990 chipsets Samsung is working on an upgraded Exynos 992 chipset for its next phone.
