With well received range of devices to it’s name which the S, Hot and Note series are all huge representatives.

Now, the company’s Infinix brand has launched the successor to its Note budget smartphone – the Infinix Note 7 and Note 7 Lite. Both falling within the budget smartphone segment, with features that are intended to match the current competition.

The infinix Note 7 device was launched in April in the Nigerian market and is therefore available for order from any of their major stores – Xspark for N78,000.

There’s also a Note 7 Lite version which appears to be a toned din version of the base device.

The available color options are Bolivia Blue, Aether Black and Forest Green.

Should you buy it?

The Infinix Note 5 was a huge success and the Note 7 unarguably promises even more with suspicions of a Coning Gorilla glass, but from a mid-range user perspective it is more stringent they start prioritizing function over fancy.

Having a mid-range device with plastic components is no big deal at least Samsung intentionally do that on their A-series but then you have to look at the competition.

Also, the world don’t need to hit the caves for protection over Covid-19 before Transsion starts making a smartphone with a Snapdragon SOc.

Of course, these are tiny details but then, the Infinix Note 7 device promises a great mid-range experience especially with that Huawei Mate 30-esque camera arrangement. Hehehe

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs leaked online with alleged Galaxy S20 camera setup 15

As it’s always the case with every new smartphone release; there’s always this excitement with every sneak peak at the details before launch.

We saw that with the Galaxy S20 lineup and looks like the doers have again gone blockbuster with the Samsung Galaxy S20 and several details you might want to know.

While speculations regarding the launch timeline of the phone had been happening, this for the first time that alleged renders of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone have been reported.

And who says it doesn’t look pretty much like the S20??!!

The renders come from Pigtou who claims that these renders are based on drawings obtained by the outlet’s sources and not conceptual.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 leaked specs.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 rendered spec and features

The expected flagship unsurprisingly looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with major exception being the boxier appearance and the square corners which is the case with all Note series.

The devices dimensions are 161.8 x 75.3 x 8.5mm, which is roughly the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ or if you want to be more precise, a little more than half a millimitre thicker. The dimensions of the camera module are even reported as well: 38.1mm by 21.9mm.

The Galaxy Note20 and Note20+ are expected to arrive with the same storage allocations as the Galaxy S20 lineup, running either the Snapdragon 865 or the Exynos 990.

The Galaxy Note20 and Note20+ have previously been rumored to come with 4000 mAh and 4500 mAh batteries, respectively.

What better time to make all our wishes come true…

A larger Samsung Galaxy Note20+ much bigger than the Galaxy S20 is expected as well, which will be quite interesting right.

We always love it bigger…

With the dimensions mentioned above (of the Note20), the report suggests it might be 6.7-inches diagonally, and the renders show the display is totally flat. We enjoy the idea that a Note device will no longer have curved edges. It’ll make it easier to use the S-Pen with

The S Pen location has also changed from the right to the left, which is likely what Samsung needed to do to get all the physical buttons over to the right side. The SIM tray is at the top of the device.

The power button also makes its return to the right hand side of the smartphone after an unsuccessful trial on the left with the Galaxy Note 10+.

Other minor tweaks are always what we have come to expect from flagship smartphone upgrades.

Just Ask Apple and their iPhones users…

When is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 launch event

The Galaxy S and Note series have always been an integral part of the Hong Kong based smartphone producer, in fact they are the only Samsung products that do get a official physical launch.

These devices have seen launch venues from New York, London and even Seoul.

However, the situation is beyond the control of the company as COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to stay indoors as much as possible.

Though nothing confirmed yet, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 is expected sometime in August during Samsung’s bi-annual Unpacked event. Only this time, we can expect an only-Virtual launch event.
