It’s been a while since the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 series of phones, but it looks like Samsung has not yet enjoyed the kind of success it was hoping for with the line-up. According to information from South Korea, Samsung has been battling weak demand for the Note 20 phones, with insiders revealing that the manufacturer had to substantially reduce the number of units produced for the line-up due to poor sales. .
The phone maker was initially supposed to produce around 900,000 units of the series phones in October, however, it ultimately decided to cut it down to 600,000 due to weak demand. To clarify, the report adds that this number is for “both the regular Galaxy Note20 and the Galaxy Note20 Ultra”. The report also goes on to speculate that the low sales are due to the poor performance of the cheaper Galaxy Note 20 model.
This will be bad news for Samsung which managed to record really high numbers during the third quarter of this year. The tech giant posted sales of KRW 66.96 trillion, the highest ever in the company’s history, with an operating profit of KRW 12.35 trillion, a 52% increase over the three-year period. months earlier and 59% more than last year. However, with the Note 20 series not doing well, last quarter earnings could very well be lost to the company in the next quarter.
While the Note 20 is giving the company a lot of trouble, the Note 20 Ultra still remains a good phone, one that promises high-end specs to help you with most everyday use tasks. In India, the device comes with an Exynos chipset paired with 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of expandable memory. The phone is coated with a 6.9-inch display and hides a huge battery pack that goes up to 4500mAh beneath the surface.
The Note 20 Ultra also gets a new S Pen with five new gestures this year. This new S-Pen also supports reduced latency which is up to 9ms, down from 42ms on the previous version of the S Pen. This makes the S Pen more responsive, and when paired with the fast 120Hz, the display helps it slide like a breeze on the Note 20 Ultra’s display.
Beyond that, there’s a lot more to like about the phone, including its premium design that looks like a flagship when you hold it in your palm.
