After the successful launch of the Galaxy Note 10 in February, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ with 5G has surfaced on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 865+. The listing has suggested some of the key specifications of the phone that could be a part of the next-generation Galaxy Note family.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ 5G with SoC 865+
An unnamed Samsung smartphone has popped up with the model number vSM-N986U on the Geekbench site, which indicates it may be the company’s new flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 20 + 5G. Furthermore, the listing indicates that the system will pack 8 GB of RAM and run Android 10 out of the box.
Even though the chip’s name is not clear in the database, it does state there’s a motherboard “Kona.” That is believed to be the codename for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC so far. The listing, however, reveals that the processor is clocked at 3.09GHz instead of the Snapdragon 865’s standard 2.84GHz clock speed. Therefore it is very probable that the mentioned SoC is the Snapdragon 865 + SoC, an improvement of the existing Qualcomm chip.
The Geekbench listing on the performance sector reveals the phone has earned a single-core score of 985 and a multi-core score of 3220. We’ve seen a patent application hinting at the waterfall display which could be part of the latest series already. It’s also said that the Galaxy Note 20 models have a 120Hz panel.
Samsung made no mention of the Galaxy Note 20 series. The Note 20 series will debut in August if the situation improves around the world. Research suggests that sales of the Galaxy S20 series were lower than those of the Galaxy S10 series. It is uncertain if the new Note series will jeopardize Samsung’s sales of the Galaxy S20 series.
