Note 20 also has a three-camera setup with 12MP main, 64MP telephoto, 12MP ultrawide lenses.

The device will sport a 6.2-inch cover display and a 7.6-inch foldable display inside of the fold. On the back, it will feature a triple camera setup and on both the displays, it will feature single hole punch modules.
