Earlier this month, a report from South Korea claimed that the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra phones would be more affordable than their predecessors. However, a new leak suggests that the next Note 20 series phones will actually be more expensive than expected.
According to tipster Ishan Agarwal and MySmartPrice, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will start at € 999 in Europe for the 4G variant only with 256 GB of storage. The 5G variant of the phone with identical storage will apparently cost € 1,099. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, meanwhile, is expected to cost € 1,349 for the 256 GB variant and € 1,449 for the 512 GB variant. For reference, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 10 in Europe for € 949, while the Galaxy Note 10+ started at € 1,099 for the 256 GB variant.

While the rumored Galaxy Note 20 Ultra pricing isn’t shocking, the Galaxy Note 20’s $ 999 starting price is certainly a shock. Unlike the vanilla Galaxy S20, the Note 20 shouldn’t be a “real” flagship phone. Despite being powered by the same Exynos 990 chipset in Europe as the Note 20 Ultra 5G, the vanilla model is said to have a 60Hz display, plastic back, and a less impressive camera setup.
The latest price leak also claims the Galaxy Buds Live will cost € 189 in Europe. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Buds Live alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series and three other new products at its Unpacked virtual event on August 5.
