One of the most interesting points regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 has been its processor. Several reports claim that this top of the range can reach Europe with the Exynos 992, but it looks like that will not happen.
The well-known Ice Universe now claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will continue to be using the Exynos 990. This is the same processor as the Samsung Galaxy S20 and has generated a lot of controversy for its inferiority compared to the Snapdragon 865.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will continue to disadvantage European users
The information advanced by Ice Universe was corroborated by Max Weinbach, from the XDA Developers forum. Furthermore, he indirectly confirms that European users of the Galaxy Note 20 will be even more penalized.
This is because the editor in chief of this well-known forum claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will have a variant with the Snapdragon 865+ processor. Unfortunately, this variant is expected to remain exclusive to the USA, China and South Korea.
Can confirm. I have found no references to any new chip other than Snapdragon 865+ in the firmware’s I have on hand. The Exynos 990 will be used in the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. https://t.co/AGee7eHv8F

That is, if the differences were already noticeable between the version with Snapdragon and Exynos of the Galaxy S20, what about the Galaxy Note 20? After all, we are talking about processors with important differences.
Let me explain. Everything indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will come with the Snapdragon 865+ in China, USA and South Korea. This is Qualcomm’s latest processor, with improvements in both performance and energy efficiency.
In contrast, the rest of the world version of the same smartphone will come with the Exynos 990. A processor that has already proven itself inferior to the Snapdragon 865, considered inferior to the Snapdragon 865+.
We sincerely hope that this information will not be confirmed, although the sources are of great confidence. It would be better for us, consumers, if any of them were wrong. Otherwise, we will have an even more substantial difference between variants.
