As attention is focused on the Galaxy S20 series i and The Galaxy Z Flip smart phones due out in February 2020, the news of the New Note 20 series, due to arrive in the second half of the year, is beginning to surface. Last year, Samsung introduced the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, and earlier this year released a Note 10 Lite model with a more primer and retained the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Given that the successor to the Galaxy S10 will be renamed from the Galaxy S11 to the new Galaxy S20 Series, the successor to the Note 10 Series is also likely to be renamed the new Note 20/Note 20 Plus from the Note 11.
Although more details about the configuration of the new Note 20 series are not yet known, the recent exposure of the phone case patent shows what the machine might look like.
On November 19, 2019, Samsung Electronics filed a patent for mobile phone design with IPI india, which was officially announced on January 10, 2020. The description of the document is short and contains only one image.
It follows the Note family’s signature design, with a rectangular design, no curved edges, similar to the Galaxy S and Galaxy A-Series.
The position at the bottom of the body, apparently one for placing the stylus slot, is also in the lower right corner as the current generation of Note 10 models, but does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack (from the front).
Unexpectedly, the power and volume keys were moved to the left side of the body, and the rear opening is very different from the Note 10 and closer to the recently launched Gaalxy A51 and A71.
The Note 10 Lite has also chosen a square rear camera module that can accommodate the flash and three lenses, but if this case patent is confirmed, the New Note 20 is expected to accommodate the rear five-camera flash.
In contrast, the Galaxy S20 plus is also equipped with only square modules with rear-facing four-camera-flashing. The Note 10 selects a vertically positioned rear three-camera and places a flash next to it (Note 10 plus more than a ToF sensor).
It was excluded from the Galaxy S20 because the size of the fuselage doesn’t match it. Samsung also has a mobile phone factory near Delhi, so we’re not surprised by the new patent’s exposure.
The company announced yesterday that it will build a mobile display plant in Noida in April 2020, mainly for mobile phone screens and related accessories.
If all goes well, Samsung is expected to release a new Note 20 series in August, and even the legendary Galaxy Z collapsible smartphone.
