The flagship is touted to be launched via the online Samsung Unpacked event on August 5. The report also speaks about other interesting features on the Note 20 Ultra. The 6.9-inch screen will have a resolution of 3200 x 1400. The phone is also expected to be the first smartphone to carry Corning’s Gorilla Glass 7.

The S pen stylus is going to have the latency of only nine milliseconds. Microsoft and Samsung are working to provide “automatic OneNote synchronization” along with the other gesture commands.

The partnership between the two tech giants has been hinted on since last year. Microsoft head Satya Nadella had made an appearance in the Galaxy Note launch event last August to highlight the cordial relations of the firms. He also announced at the event that Samsung will have Microsoft applications like the Your Phone app and Office apps preinstalled on Galaxy Note 10.

The WinFuture report also suggests that the Note 20 Ultra will have a 108 MP main camera, aided by a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and a 12 MP periscope lens that can zoom in up to 50 times. A hole punch front camera of 10 megapixels is also going to be featured.
