The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is on the way. It will hit the market quite soon. But we are talking about a flagship smartphone for the second half of the year. Thus, it should come with a number of outstanding features that also include innovative approaches. In fact, we have heard too much about the key features of the upcoming smartphone. But Samsung has some secrets that should be uncovered at the launch event. Though some of them are already disclosed by tipsters. Today, @SaudiAndroid revealed that Samsung will bring a new technology called UWP. This will not only make the phone unique but also become the boldest alternative to NFC.
The tipster claimed to have received exclusive news that Samsung will launch a new technology called UWP. It is a very fast file transfer method that competes with NFC technology. The source said that the new Galaxy Note 20 series will be the world’s first smartphone to use the new UWP technology. It can transfer files by pointing to the device. Possibly, you would be able to point the Note 20 at another Note 20 (or other future Samsung phones with the UWB chip) to prioritize connecting to that particular device, taking advantage of the precise, indoor positioning features enabled by the technology.
It is expected that the Galaxy Note 20 series will use the new U1 chip to achieve this function. There are also some reports that UWP is just a revised version of AirDrop.
In this regard, XDA said:
The new Apple‑designed U1 chip uses Ultra-Wide band technology for spatial awareness — allowing iPhone 11 to understand its precise location relative to other nearby U1‑equipped Apple devices. Think GPS at the scale of your living room. So if you want to share a file with someone using AirDrop, just point your iPhone at theirs and they’ll be first on the list.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series will be officially released on August 5.
