A reported mold image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ (or Note 20 Ultra) LED View Cover housing has been released with permission from Roland Quandt. Depending on the model, it looks like the location of the handset camera will be the same as that of the S20 series. The mold also shows that the buttons are on the right side, which is different from the Note 10 series.
