Samsung took the wraps off its latest flagship smartphones – the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra at a virtual Galaxy Unpacked event. The company only announced the global pricing details last night. We have now learned the India price and availability details, along with the answer to the biggest question – Is Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra powered by Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 in India?
Galaxy Note 20/ Note 20 Ultra: India Prices
First, let’s talk about how much you will need to shell out to step foot into the Mystic land. Samsung has only brought the 256GB variant of both the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra to India. Here are the India prices for both the devices:
- Galaxy Note 20 4G (8GB+256GB) – Rs. 77,999
- Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G (12GB+256GB) – Rs.1,04,999
The Galaxy Note 20 series is now up for pre-booking on Samsung’s website and other leading offline retail stores. It will find its way to Flipkart, Amazon, and other e-tailers over the coming weeks.
Galaxy Note 20 will be available in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Green while the Note 20 Ultra comes in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black colorways in India.
Galaxy Note 20/ Note 20 Ultra: Powered by Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990?
One of the biggest changes that smartphone enthusiasts expected from Samsung was Snapdragon 865 powering the Galaxy Note 20 series in India. Sadly, we have received confirmation that both the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are powered by the company’s own Exynos 990 chipset in India.
This is really disappointing for users who have been running petitions requesting the Korean giant to bring Snapdragon-powered flagship phones to regions where Exynos variants are dumped on users. We even benchmarked the Snapdragon 865 against the Exynos 990 and the results are clear as day. You can check them out for yourself right here.
Also, if you didn’t already notice, the Galaxy Note 20 is available only in a 4G variant whereas the Note 20 Ultra does support 5G connectivity in India. Another thing that everyone needs to know about the vanilla Note 20 is the presence of a 60Hz display instead of a 120Hz panel and a polycarbonate back panel.
