The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G utilizes advanced charging techniques to achieve faster charging than its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ (click here to learn more).
The 5G capable Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G continues to support max power charging rates in the 22.5-27W range using USB Power Delivery 3.0 over Type-C as well as 15W Qi wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Some key upgrades of the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G from the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ include the newer and faster Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+ chipset, Adreno 650 GPU, Android 10 as well as 108 MP rear camera with 50x hybrid zoom and 8K video.
We purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G from a AT&T online store to see what's inside the box.
The AT&T version of the phone came along with a Samsung 25W Super Fast Charge charger and USB Type-C cable accessory.
The supplied Samsung 25W Super Fast Charge charger supports the following power profiles- fixed Power Delivery Objects (PDO's) of 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps) and 24.9 watts (9 volts @ 2.77 amps) as well as Programmable Power Supply (PPS) of 3.3-5.9 volts @ 3 amps and 3.3-11 volts @ 2.25 amps, which are also shared by the Samsung Galaxy Note10+'s charger and the Samsung 25W PD 3.0 PPS Type-C Charger that shipped with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G phone.
For fastest charging, make sure to use the USB Type-C cable accessory to connect both phone and charger.
By comparison, the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G is just slightly bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Note10+, but equipped with the newer Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and 120Hz@FHD/60Hz@QHD refresh rate on the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G.
The phone's USB Type-C connector supports USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gb/s) speeds to enable Samsung Super Fast Charge and USB Power Delivery based charging as well as video output using DisplayPort Alternate Mode with DisplayPort 1.3 support.
