Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra appeared on Geekbench last week with a model number SM-N986B – the phone had Exynos 990 chipset and recorded some fairly impressive results.
Today a new device, said to be the LTE version of the Note20 Ultra and with a model number SM-N985F, scored fewer points both on the single-core and multi-core tests, suggesting either underclocked chipset or, more likely, a less than optimal state of its software.
The SM-N985F appears with 8GB RAM, while the SM-N986B apparently had 12 gigs, but Geekbench does not reflect memory speeds. We also see some other specs like base frequency of 2 GHz and Android 10, but these are hardly a surprise.
The Galaxy Note20 Ultra is expected to arrive tomorrow alongside the vanilla Note20. While Samsung is heavily investing in its 5G portfolio, it will still launch LTE versions of the flagships with lower price tags in markets where 5G is yet to be deployed.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
