The Note 20 ultra comes with the camera improvements that Samsung made with its top of the line smartphones like the S20 Ultra and that includes better dynamic range and better night mode. Samsung has removed the depth camera and used a specialized laser autofocus module which is so quick at focusing.
- The Pro video mode lets you choose the audio categorically like the front, all around you, or focus behind. The camera on the Note 20 Ultra lets you shoot 120Fps video at 1080p resolution.
- The selfie camera has been taken down from 40MP to 10MP but it produces similar results. The 100 times zoom has been dropped to 50 because the telephoto camera has been switched from a 48 megapixel four times optical zoom to a 12MP 5 times optical zoom.

- Samsung uses two different chipsets for its flagships based on the regions. Exynos 990 falls behind as compared with the Snapdragon 865+.
- If you’re in the UK or India you might be getting the Exynos chipset. There is one difference here though and that is the Adaptive refresh rate and this means the screen can refresh starting from 1 to 120Hz.
There are only two options available on the S20 Ultra and that is 60 or 120Hz. This impressive feature helps in battery consumption.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra comes with the enhanced software and its a complete package. The faster UFS 2.1 storage, greater display, and the new One UI 2.5 software the battery will last longer.
The software provides faster responses, fantastic haptics, and added bloatware which you’re not going to use.

The S-Pen feels precise and instantly reactive to your touch. The Note 20 Ultra doesn’t support the headphone jack. It has a great set of stereo speakers and it also supports the wireless charging and with the added benefit of reverse wireless charging.
