A while ago, there was a debate over whether the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra would receive the potent 108-megapixel camera module from the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but now it appears that the mystery is solved!
The big news comes from WinFuture’s Ronald Quandt, who stated that he had seen “hard evidence” of the 108-megapixel primary camera in a recent tweet:
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 “Ultra” (“Canvas2”) has a 108MP main cam. I know we knew, but I’ve seen hard evidence now, so consider it confirmed from my end.

The news is unexpected, as the improvements between models typically consist of storage space, the included S Pen, and camera improvements.
It would be awkward if Samsung allowed the Note 20 Ultra to be a downgrade from the S20 Ultra.
However, there used to be a strong concern that the company wouldn’t be porting the S20 Ultra’s 100x SpaceZoom feature and the 108-megapixel camera to the Note 20.
A Mighty Rival
If the leak turns out to be accurate, the Note 20 Ultra will be a serious rival to the iPhone 12 Pro, which is rumored to feature a triple-camera setup and a performant depth-sensing LiDAR module.
The specifications of the Note 20 Ultra are truly impressive – It packs Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 and an astonishing 12GB of RAM. Content will be displayed on a 120Hz panel from the S20 series lineup, supposedly unlocking apps that run at more than 60fps.
In terms of storage, the device will receive either 256 GB or 512 GB of storage, and it will be powered by a battery between 4,500 to 5,000 mAh.
Also, the device is 5G-capable.
The phone will cost between $1,200 and $1,400, and it will supposedly be introduced at the August 5 Unpacked event, alongside the Galaxy Fold 2, Galaxy Tab S7, and Galaxy Z Flip 5G
