Why is the Galaxy Note20 family awesome?

The Galaxy Note20 series — the most powerful Note series yet — is a productivity powerhouse that works like a computer and lets you game like a pro. The series comes in two versions: Galaxy Note20 Ultra, designed for Note fans who demand the ultimate mobile experience, and Galaxy Note20, for new Note users looking to maximize their time for work and play.

5G Built Right: The Galaxy Note20 5G series taps into Verizon’s lightning-fast 5G Ultra Wideband network, as well as Verizon’s low-band 5G network going live later this year. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband offers access to speeds that will change the way you use your smartphone for work, play and everything in between.

As it continues to expand, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network will allow you to game with ultra-low lag and upload photos and videos to your favorite content-sharing platform at incredible speeds. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service is currently available in parts of 35 cities, 17 stadiums and seven indoor arenas, with more being rolled out throughout 2020.

Power to play: The Galaxy Note20 series gaming experience is up-leveled with its AI game booster, Bluetooth audio response optimization and 240Hz touch latency on the Note20 Ultra. Plus, with a large and immersive display with smooth gaming experience thanks to the fastest processor in a Galaxy yet, the Galaxy Note20 series is a pro-gaming set-up that fits in your pocket.

Cinematic-style video: Now you have the power to be like a filmmaker in the palm of your hands. The Galaxy Note20 shoots pro-quality 8k video and puts you in complete creative control. Use built-in movie-like effects like Pro Video mode to control the focus, audio, exposure, lighting and zoom speed for cinematic-style videos. Give your home movies that cinema-style quality with 21:9 aspect ratio and 24fps recording.

Advanced S Pen: The enhanced S Pen is more powerful than ever. Experience more responsive writing2 when taking notes or sketching out your ideas. Convert those ideas into a Microsoft Word document or PowerPoint with the more intelligent Samsung Notes app. You can also save your notes and sync them across your Galaxy devices for easy access anywhere3.

Intelligent battery and Super-Fast Charging: Galaxy Note20 series have intelligent batteries that are big enough to last all day4. Galaxy Note20 intuitively manages your app usage to conserve energy on its own. Rest assured that you can tackle those emails during the day and be left with enough juice to conquer your opponents at night. And, if you are running low on battery, get hours of power from minutes of charge5 with Super-Fast Charging.

Let’s get down to Business.

Take your productivity to the next level with Galaxy Note20 series. Samsung’s latest Note series transforms the way you work — empowering you to do more anytime and while on-the-go. These new features extend to Galaxy Tab S7 5G and Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G for the power of a PC, the flexibility of a tablet and the connectivity of a smartphone. Building on Samsung’s legacy of 5G leadership, Tab S7 series will be the first 5G Ultra Wideband tablets available in the United States, unlocking seamless videoconferencing, fast downloads and virtually lag-free streaming.

Also, compatibility with Verizon’s One Talk allows you to untether your business phone and gives you the capabilities of traditional office phone systems on your mobile device.
