As you already know Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. First thing you would notice in these new phones is the appearance, they actually look pretty similar to Note 10. The ultra is the bigger device it comes with 6.9″ edge Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O screen with 120 Hz refresh rate. Whereas, the regular Note 20 has a 6.7″ flat FHD+ Super AMOLED+ screen. Both are pretty big phones, but that is what we expect from Galaxy Note devices. The ultra has a curved display, whereas the Note 20 has a flat-screen. I would personally prefer the flat panel. If the future devices come with a flat panel, I would be quite happy about that. In this guide, we will talk about how to track and locate lost Galaxy Note 20. If you lost it somewhere or its stolen, even if just put it somewhere and can’t find it.
The Note 20 comes in 3 colors, namely Mystic Green, Mystic Bronze and Mystic Gray. whereas, Note 20 Ultra can be bought in Mystic Black, Mystic White and Mystic Bronze. I am personally very pissed at Samsung for not releasing Note 20 Ultra in Mystic Green as that color is dope.
Samsung has worked really hard on the cameras of Note 20 series. The regular model has three cameras, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle, a 12 MP wide-angle and a 64 MP Telephoto Camera. The Note 20 Ultra has two 12 MP cameras, a telephoto and an ultra-wide and a 108 MP Wide-Angle Camera. Along with that, it has a Laser AF sensor for autofocus. Talking about the software side, Samsung has introduced a number of new and cool features for the cameras. Namely Hyperlapse, Super Slow Motion, etc.
