This is my note eight.
I've been clinging on to this thing for a couple of years but the next note is coming really soon.
Here's what we want to see out of the next Samsung Galaxy Note.
A return to the weird.
The note used to be the experimental brand.
The note was the phone with a huge screen.
The note was the one that tried out an edge display.
Remember that note three with the fake leather backing.
That was a real thing.
That was something else.
The note has become a bit stale when it comes to the weird.
I want to see something crazy on the note 20.
Maybe a flat screen, maybe multiple front facing cameras under the display.
Maybe the no 20 shifts as two pieces.
You get the regular note along with a mini note that combines with the big note.
To form mega Note, maybe the stylus hasn't really displayed for some reason, just something wacky.
Will Samsung returned to the weird on the Note?
My hopes are not high on this one.
The Note is so much sure, please surprise me Samsung wireless decks This is kind of related to the weird.
The Note is for power users.
Samsung DeX lets you use your phone like a desktop computer using a dock or a cable.
There are rumblings about a wireless version of DeX being found in code.
Good old Max Weinbach of XDA Developers found that code, by the way, nice job, Max.
Imagine being able to connect your phone to a Samsung TV To have a PC like experience.
If Samsung does go ahead with wireless dex, may be introduced software for Macs, windows, and maybe even Chromebooks, run the software on a computer connected your note 20 wirelessly.
But if you have a laptop already, why would you want to use Samsung's weird dex thing?
I'll tell you why.
One You would not have to buy some special accessory for your note.
Two, you could reuse an old laptop doing nothing but collecting dust three, you'd get full access to everything on your phone.
Instead of transferring files back and forth from a PC to your phone.
Just use your phone for everything.
While I'm yapping maybe we could get Samsung dex apps for set top boxes like the Roku, do all the dex things Samsung doing a bigger in screen fingerprint sensor.
Right now Samsung has Qualcomm's 3D Sonic sensor in the note 10 it sits under the display so there's no need for a dedicated button or section on the phone for a more traditional sensor.
The only problem was that the area that reads the fingerprint is not exactly huge that led to issues when it came to unlocking.
What good is a phone that you can't access easily?
Back in December Quaicomm launched the sonic max it covers an area of 30 mm by 20mm, turns out that 17 times larger than the current sensor.
That means you don't have to put your finger into the precise spot, you can even use.
Two fingers to authenticate, which would be more secured.
Let's get a sonic match in that next note, as an aside, I would love to see the return of the iris scanner.
It does not require you to touch the screen.
And that's been very helpful lately,
the hugest screen Look, there's a big difference between the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note the note Always has the bigger display, always.
Now, the ES20 Ultra Threw down with a 6.9 inch display with a 120 hertz refresh rate to get bigger than the S20 Ultra potentially looking at in mainstream phones with a seven inch display.
In the olden days, a seven inch display was called a tablet Does anyone need a screen that big on a phone?
I don't know.
Do I wanna see it from an engineering standpoint?
Yeah, I just want Samsung to go for broke on this one.
Now the size refers to the diagonal measurement of the display.
So Samsung could go with a very narrow phone while reaching that seven inch mark.
On the practical side, a screen like that could make it easier to multitask.
If you like putting up two apps at once, like I do, that huge screen could be very helpful for productivity.
And number one on my list is the big things.
For Samsung phones the note has been the beast, tonnes of RAM, tonnes of storage space and the huge battery.
The top of the line note likely called the note 20 Ultra should be ridiculously overpowered.
Let's get 16 gigs of RAM, one terabyte of storage with expandability and a camera bump.
That's the size of another phone.
The next note to pack a huge honkin battery.
If you're cramming and a great processor, a 5G modem and a huge display with a high refresh rate, you need a big battery.
Big specs eat up big battery life.
What I'm really saying is that the no 20 needs to be more than just the S 20 with an S pen and a slightly boxier look If the note and the s are going to remain two separate things, there needs to be a real difference between the phones and the notes gimmick beyond the S Pen is power.
There has to be a real reason to spend extra money on a note if it's going to continue to be in the lineup.
Well, that's my wish list if you want to see what's been uncovered about the note 20 Check this video out.
It's very helpful.
Well note, buddy, I think you're getting replaced.
You've had a great run.
How long have you been hanging on to your current phone?.
Let me know.
I'm on my x card, I'll see you online.
