Samsung has announced that it will be organizing the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5th, 2020. The brand is set to launch the Galaxy Note 20 series at this event. The Galaxy Note 20 series is expected to have three smartphones, the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Plus, and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. All three smartphones have been leaked multiple times so far. However, there is some doubt regarding the existence of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Furthermore, there is a bit of confusion regarding the model numbers of various Galaxy Note 20 models (especially for the Ultra version). Well, we have now come across a certification of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on Indonesian Telecom, which clears up a lot of details.
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (SM-985F) gets Indonesian Telecom certification
The Indonesian Telecom certification that we are talking about is for a Samsung smartphone with model number SM-N985F. Up until now, the SM-985F was speculated to be the Galaxy Note 20 Plus. Even in our report that was published earlier today, which was regarding the FCC certification of the Samsung SM-985F, we had said that the SM-985F is the Galaxy Note 20 Plus.
However, the Indonesian Telecom certification of the SM-985F that we have now come across, clearly mentions that the retail name of the device is Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, clearing the confusion regarding the model number and retail name once and for all. So, we now know that one of the model numbers of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is SM-985F and that the SM-985F is not the Galaxy Note 20 Plus.
According to the FCC certification of the SM-985F, that we had reported about earlier today, the device has LTE connectivity. So, what about the 5G version of the device? What is its model number? Well, a few days ago, we had come across a Bluetooth SIG certification of a Samsung smartphone with model number SM-986, which, we had also speculated to be the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Now, it highly likely that the SM-986 is the model number of the 5G variant of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Hopefully, we will know more about these devices as their launch nears. Stay tuned for more details.
