Update: photos believed to be of the Note 20 Ultra were actually of the Note 10 Plus, but the accompanying specs list is still associated with Samsung's upcoming flagship. Full story below.
We weren’t sure there was going to be a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, as there hasn’t been much news of one and a source had even said the handset didn’t exist. But it sure looks real in a new leak, which includes a significant specs list.
The leak comes from @UniverseIce (a leaker with a good track record) on Twitter, and appeared to also include images, but the source has since clarified that the photos are of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
As for the specs, the source claims the Note 20 Ultra has a Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset (despite there being some question over whether such a chipset will be launched), and a screen that supports a QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate at the same time. That’s an upgrade on the Samsung Galaxy S20 range, as you can only have one of those things at once there.

The source also claims that there are new camera functions and a new S Pen with new features, but doesn’t go into any detail as to what these are.
Additionally, the forehead and chin are in total apparently narrowed by 0.4mm compared to the Note 10 Plus, the punch-hole camera is said to be 0.1mm smaller, and the "fuselage" (presumably the body) is supposedly 0.3mm thinner. That would mean the Note 20 Ultra is 7.6mm thick.
We would of course take all of this with a pinch of salt. Rumored information is never guaranteed to be true and with this being the first real information about the Note 20 Ultra we’re even less sure of it, but the source is solid.
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 range likely landing in August we might not know for sure whether there’s a Note 20 Ultra for a while yet, but if there is we’d expect plenty more leaks to emerge soon.
