I am contemplating to jump the gun from S20 Ultra to Note 20 Ultra, pending camera reviews and comparison.

Any one else?

Any news on launch/prices etc?

I have already decided to jump ship a month back. I have convinced myself on the smaller battery, smaller screen compared to S20 Ultra, 120hz FHD+.
But yesterday's news on exynos 990 is a little upsetting and making me look towards iPhone 12 in Sept.

Price should be same as S20U. around 90k for 12/128GB. Launch date 21st Aug.

Unless they release a Snapdragon version in India, Note 20 can't be a day 1 purchase like all the previous Samsung devices. After all these years, Samsung's image processing sadly hasn't improved, the skin tones and fine details still look smeared.. am hoping Nokia can release a proper flagship this year..else, looking out for Asus ZenFone 7 Pro to see if that's a better alternative. This year, I can't waste money on another Samsung device if the image processing and Exynos crap still continue.

Z fold 2 also is a viable option...which ll be released with Snapdragon SoC in India. But day to day usage with a very sensitive screen and kids around becomes tough to choose.
I miss the boxier design of the Note 10 plus.
Now that exynos is confirmed, hoping Samsung has done some improvements to match the 865.

Happy that the base storage is 256GB and the frame is stainless steel.

Launching tomorrow...excited and I'm getting it.
Looking forward to
1. Overall improved camera and better zoom quality
2. Spen with 9ms response time
3. LTPO dynamic 2X display
4. Wireless DeX
5. Better heat/battery management
6. Mystic Bronze brushed corning gorilla glass 7

All these should definitely make it a better experience from S20 Ultra

One disappointment with the prebook offer is...currently the 10k estore credit cannot be used on Galaxy Watch 3 45mm.

No, just the 3rd offer in case you are not eligible for the other 2.
1,04,999 is the actual cost.

Ultra is coming in 5G.

OK.. it's mostly the third option for me, as I am a cash guy.. tax deductibles easier that way..

Any insight on the selling price for a Mint S20 Ultra?

Checked recycledevice, for S20U, 1 to 5 months old they quote 62k as cash and 65k as amazon pay balance.
On samsung website it shows 54k only which is bad.
I'm thinking of trying out recycle device asap as my ultra be will 5 plus months old coming 13th Aug :laugh:

I will have to wait for the launch.. i cannot use an iPhone as my daily driver :(

Also, whats this confusion about 128/256GB.. i thought Ultra will start with 256GB

I think, if I get anything over 52K for the Ultra, I will be fine!

In India, Note 20 Ultra 5G comes in just 1 variant that is 256GB and 2 colors (Bronze and Black, no white :( )
As for the recycledevice website, it would be my first experience with it. Cashify also quotes 55k only.

Edit: I was expecting the price to be lesser than S20 Ultra, but OnePlus is to be blamed here, they hiked the price and marketed 8 Pro as 5G device letting Samsung follow suit.

Yup.. I confirmed from my guy..

Bronze and Black.. I'll prefer the bronze

Likely available around the 20th of August

Around 55K for the Ultra + 5k upgrade.. so nett 45K for the Note 20U.. I can convince my wife :D

No updates on the clubbed offers for the buds live.

Looks like there is no buds offer, instead they give us store credit of 10k with HDFC card.

i think the samsung shop offer will stand.. you register with your mobile and you will get a 10K credit. You can use this for Buds live...

Even I think so, but in the prebook offer guide it is mentioned as
" customers who pre-book Note20 Ultra will be eligible for Samsung Shop benefit of ₹10000.00 and HDFC Cashback of upto ₹9000.00"

Yup.. so you prebook anywhere, you can register the IMEI to get 10k credit.

Well, let's see

I'm seriously thinking of prebooking today.

The camera seems to be significantly improved from the s20 ultra.

I have only ever once had a note.. I think it was the 4.

I always think that I'll hardly have use for the spen.

    Means you have been charged after deducting cash back?
    May be you haven't opted for EMI? They said 9K Cashback only if 6 month EMI pay.

    Here it is...90 days

    8k for full swipe, 9k for EMI, I opted for EMI options for that extra 1k :p

    Usually opera house Bangalore ll get it a day ahead just to maintain their exclusivity. I even got S20U a day before.

    now its confirmed as 25th morning..........my retailer has confirmed the stock details as well,stocks are with them and its already allocated to the respective outlets and it will reach them on monday,for the sales on Tuesday------so 25th is the date for prebooked customers

    I've zero interest in an Exynos 990 powered "flagship" for late 2020.

    Want to give SM-N9860 a try.

    Anyone knows any platform that ships this model to India? eBay sellers and Wondamobile don't, amazon.com doesn't/will not sell that model.

    Only platform is uncle, aunt, friend or his friend.. :p
    I tried every possibility...nobody is returning to India :(

    Last time I was told I was the first to get S20U in India, 13th March, Opera house Bangalore.
    It happened unceremoniously :laugh:
    First 50 S10 plus devices were handed over by the CEO himself last year, but missed it due to other commitments.
    Hope for N20U I'm one among the first few :p

    Indian reviewers are ripping the Exynos Note20U..they say it has horrible battery life, max of 4+ hrs of SOT.
    Samsung please I can't stand one more S20U ?
