The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Series Might See a New Successor

The latest and successful series of Samsung Galaxy Note 20 smartphones is all set to get its successor in the coming months. The Galaxy Note 20+ is the rumored handset that has been spotted by tipsters and on Geekbench alike.

The benchmark website’s listing has dropped some major clues about the upcoming device. The alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ has appeared on Geekbench with the model number Samsung SM-N986U. According to the Geekbench listing, the upcoming flagship handset will make use of the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. This chipset comes with an integrated modem for 5G connectivity. The smartphone is further listed with 8GB RAM.

We are not sure of whether there will be multiple RAM options, and have no idea about its storage capacity either. The 5G-enabled handset will be launched with the Android 10 OS layered with a custom One UI 2.0 skin. Additionally, the listing also reveals the benchmark scores of the Galaxy Note 20+. The device has managed to log 985 points in the single-core and 3,220 points in the multi-core test.

The Geekbench listing doesn’t reveal the moniker, however, a tweet by Max Weinbach from XDA Developers confirms its existence. According to Weinbach, software development has begun on the Samsung SM-N986U, which according to him could be the Galaxy Note 20+ 5G. The software is being developed for at least four builds of the Galaxy Note 20+, including the N986USQU0ATC5, N986USQU0ATC7, N986USQU0ATC9, and N986USQU0ATC.

Samsung is yet to confirm the existence of any such device, so we will get more clarity once the company makes an official announcement. This is most likely to happen only after the current Coronavirus pandemic subsides, globally.
