Samsung celebrated yesterday, albeit without an audience and at a less glittering event than usual, the launch of the most advanced Android smartphone on the market. The new devices, most notably the Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy Note20 Ultra, which have the same designs as last year’s models, are mainly characterized by enlarging the battery and screen, and improving the cameras. Official launch in Israel: August 21.

The Galaxy Note20 will come with a 6.7-inch screen, a 4,300mAh battery, while the Ultra version will come with a 6.9-inch screen and a 4,500mAh battery. “This is the perfect device for work and the perfect device for gaming – to work like on a personal computer and play like on a console,” said the director of the mobile division at Samsung Israel Guy Dry. “We’ve added a lot of innovations to this device like a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.”
Samsung’s base device, the Note20, will hit stores in bronze, gray and green. The Ultra is also in bronze alongside the more classic colors: black and white. The recommended prices in Israel will be NIS 3,500 for the basic product and NIS 4,500 for the more advanced one. And what about the cameras? The company promises a camera with three lenses, including a 5x optical zoom and focus and 108 megapixels for the advanced model. For the basic model – a slightly less good camera with a 3x optical zoom. The pen attached to the devices will be more accurate and it will be possible to use it without touching the screen.
“It is impossible to say of any of the devices launched in recent years that it is a revolution,” said technology expert Guy Levy. “The weaknesses of Samsung’s new device are due in my opinion to the company’s decision to release two Note20 models. If you buy a flagship device that costs a lot of money from a company like Samsung you expect to get the best components.”

The big players in the smartphone market are having a hard time reinventing themselves. Apple will also launch the iPhone 12 soon but late and as usual the expectations are high and the network has already leaked about the appearance of the new device. In the past these leaks have proven themselves not far from reality at all. So what do you know about the new iPhone? A different feel, a huge reduction in the frame and also a bigger camera.
