Shortly after the release of the Galaxy S20 Series and the Galaxy Z Flip Folding Screen Smartphone, many people have set their sights on the Galaxy Note 20 Series smartphone, which is due to be released later this year. Earlier news broke that the next-generation Galaxy Note smartphone is expected to be released around July, and Samsung is clearly actively developing cool features for the Note 20.

Patently Mobile recently unveiled a new patent from Samsung, suggesting that the company may be developing a novel surface display for the Galaxy Note 20.
In addition to wrapping the edge of the device, the design also integrates solid keys (with possible incisions) including volume adjustment, into this part of the display area.

Clearly, as complemented by Infinity’s large screen and S-Pen stylus, surface displays add more consumer-attractive selling points to the Note 20 Series smartphones.
Earlier, well-known whistleblower @UniverseIce has revealed that the Note 20 will feature a more sophisticated 120Hz high refresh rate display, which is expected to compete more closely with Apple’s iPhone 12 series.
The patent documents also describe the possible emergence of a new wave of sensors for the new model, including gestures, atmospheric pressure, magnetism, grip, UV rays, and temperature/humidity sensors.
It remains to be seen when Samsung will launch its patented “side-bendglass with touch function”.
