Whereas we have been anticipating simply two Samsung Galaxy Word 20 telephones to launch this yr, we could possibly be getting a high-specced Samsung Galaxy Word 20 Extremely anyway, as new paperwork recommend.
Earlier in 2020, the three fashions within the Samsung Galaxy S20 line included the high-specced and high-priced S20 Extremely, so we anticipated one to come back alongside the Word 20 line. However not too long ago, a tipster alleged that Samsung’s stylus-packing flagships would solely are available two fashions this yr: the usual and bigger Word 20 Plus.
And but, a brand new Bluetooth SIG certification appeared that talked about the Word 20 Extremely by identify, as first seen by MySmartPrice.
That certification additionally mentions a mannequin quantity, SM-N986U, which could sound acquainted, as PhoneArena factors out: a Geekbench itemizing with that quantity appeared in April, which was assumed to be referring to the Samsung Galaxy Word 20 Plus 5G (particularly since that lined up with the Samsung Galaxy Word 10 Plus 5G’s quantity, SM-N976U).
However now that we’ve seen a completely different mannequin quantity related to the Galaxy Word 20 Plus (SM-9860), and assuming Samsung’s subsequent stylus telephones are all 5G-capable just like the Galaxy S20 line, we may theorize that the ‘Plus 5G’ model is, actually, a higher-powered Extremely mannequin.
This does require us to attach some dots, so we’ll wait and see whether or not extra proof emerges that factors to a Word 20 Extremely.

In case you want extra cause to query the existence of one other Extremely cellphone, simply have a look at the final one. Whereas we have been technically impressed with the Galaxy S20 Extremely, its few benefits over the usual S20 and S20 Plus telephones didn’t justify its exorbitant worth hike.
So we haven’t been too shocked listening to rumors just like the latest that claims the Word 20 Plus will pack cameras which max out at 50x digital zoom – which is spectacular, however they wouldn’t fairly attain the absurd stage of the S20 Extremely’s, which may attain 100x digital zoom.
After all, the rumor famous that solely the Word 20 Plus would get the expansive zoom, whereas not specifying whether or not the usual Word 20 would even have it. There’s nonetheless so much to listen to about which of the lineup’s handsets get what options, so keep tuned for extra leaks and rumors as we inch towards the Word 20’s anticipated launch date later this yr.
