Samsung recently put up posters of the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on its Ukrainian website. The posters showcase the device in the Mystic Bronze colour.

From the looks of it, the device will feature a quad camera setup on the back. One of the camera sensors seems to be a periscope-style lens, which could offer a 100x zoom similar to the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
