New Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Buds Live leaks reveal the designs ahead of Galaxy Unpacked launch

Unsurprisingly, with Samsung Unpacked just weeks away, the Galaxy Note 20 is increasingly appearing in leaks. We’ve already seen hands-on video of the Ultra model and renders of the Plus model. The standard Galaxy Note 20, however, has been a bit more elusive. Today we’ve got a clear 360-degree view of the phone along with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Buds Live.

The most interesting feature from this new leak, courtesy of Evan Blass on Patreon, is actually the lack of a feature. The smaller Galaxy Note 20 will not have a curved display, a characteristic that has become overwhelmingly common on Samsung phones (and flagships in general). The front angle clearly shows the side bezels on the same plane as the display and the 360-degree view confirms it.

On the back, we can see a sizable camera module, but nowhere near as massive as the one we saw on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It has the same number of main cameras (3) but looks to lack a ToF sensor. Other than that, these renders reveal a familiar-looking device that will fit in nicely with the Ultra and Plus models. Not much is known about the specifications of the Note 20 yet, but we can assume it’ll pack top-tier specifications like a QHD+ OLED display (possibly at 120Hz though that isn’t confirmed), the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ (or Exynos 990), LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.X storage, and a beefy battery.

Moving on to the Galaxy Buds Live (affectionally called the Galaxy Beans by some), Twitter leaker WalkingCat (@h0x0d) shared a clear render and a video. The static image shows off the metallic bronze color, which matches the bronze we’ve seen on the Note 20 Ultra. The short video once again shows the white and black colors along with a closer look at the charging case. Samsung’s tagline reads: “Keep the noise out. Let the sound in.” Thus, the new TWS earbuds will likely support active noise cancellation, as previously rumored. We’ll be seeing both the Buds Live and Galaxy Note 20 early next month.
