SINGAPORE – Samsung will be launching its new models, the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, which will go on sale on August 21.

The devices that will be sold in Singapore will come with 256GB of internal storage, but while the Note 20 Ultra variation will only have a 5G variant, the regular Note 20 will be available in both 4G and 5G variants. There are also two sizes customers can choose from; the Galaxy Note 20 at 6.7 inches and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra at 6.9 inches.

For the Note 20, customers can choose between Mystic Bronze, Mystic Green and Mystic Gray colours, while the Ultra version comes in Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black and Mystic White.

All handsets will also have expandable memory cards too.

Samsung has also integrated a pen with the phone, sharing on its website that “this is the world’s most powerful S Pen.”

The improved stylus has some new features. Aside from being more sensitive, it has improved latency – otherwise known as the lag time – of nine milliseconds in order to make note-taking feel better. It also has a 24-hour battery life on standby and can be used to control the phone through the gestures feature.
