As for specifications, the Note 20 comes with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED+ display having a resolution of 2400 x 1800 pixels. However, the Note 20 display has a refresh rate of 60 Hz, which is a real dampener given that even mid-range phones half its price such as the Nord come with 90 Hz display.
The Note 20 Ultra, on the other hand, comes with a 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED display having a resolution of 3088 x 1440 pixels and 120 Hz refresh rate. The Note 20 Ultra also gets Corning Gorilla Glass 7 protection, which happens to be the toughest glass known.

With the Note 20 Ultra 5G, you have a 108 MP primary camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 5x true optical zoom. That said, both the phones are capable of recording 8K videos besides supporting Space Zoom, the latter again maxing out at 50x on the Note 20 Ultra and 30x on the Note 20.
