Samsung hopes to unveil the Galaxy Note 20 as well as the Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G on August 5, while we’re two months away from the launch date, fans of Samsung and whoever plans to buy the Galaxy Note 20 There is some bad news for them.
Popular tipster Ice Universe has tweeted that the base Galaxy Note 20 is likely to come with a disappointing 60 Hz refresh rate. The news comes at a time when the smartphone industry is adopting 90 Hz as a standard and pushing ahead with 120Hz refresh rate display and even more 240Hz display.
Although the Ice Universe is usually fairly accurate in terms of leaks, the presence of a 60Hz refresh rate in the Galaxy Note 20 seems quite odd, especially since the entire Galaxy S20 lineup has a 120Hz refresh rate.
Tipster also states that the base Galaxy Note 20 will be on par with the lite variant of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. That is, Samsung may compromise in terms of specifications as a cost-cutting measure.
Wide frame + flat screen + FHD resolution + 60Hz refresh rate.
It's a desperate specification.😑

Tipster claims the Galaxy Note 20 will have a full HD flat display. Renderings of the leaked Galaxy Note 20 last month also point to a flat display in the device.
If all these rumors are reflected in reality, then we can expect the price of Samsung Galaxy S20 to be around or even lower than the Galaxy S20 starting price. The Galaxy S20 starts at $ 999, while the Galaxy Note 10 was launched at an initial price of $ 949 last year.
While we cannot confirm if these rumors are true, we hope that Samsung will not launch the regular Galaxy Note 20 with a 60 GHz display. If this happens, aggressively priced are better priced to survive in competitive markets.
