Cell phone coming? What we know about the Galaxy Note 20 is that, unfortunately, it should sin a bit in terms of hardware novelty, by basically taking advantage of everything we saw in the Galaxy S20 line and its Exynos 990.
However, of course, there will be support for S-Pen, as well as software and other news. In addition, rumors suggest that a partnership involving Samsung and Microsoft may arrive.
Through it, users could enjoy three months of free Game Pass, which would abandon the prefix “Xbox” in the coming months. It would not be the first time that the company would seek to associate the Note line with a gamer product, since at the launch of the Galaxy Note 9 the South Korean giant linked the product to the Fortnite game.
In any case, many may wonder the relationship between Game Pass and a smartphone. Well, the service currently works on Xbox One consoles and Windows PCs, but in the international market Microsoft intends to release the xCloud cloud service in September. The Game Pass, as already revealed, should include this new service in its combo, so in the international market it would be possible to make use of the Game Pass directly by the smartphone.
It is not clear whether the offer will be a basic Game Pass or a Game Pass Ultimate. It makes more sense that it belongs to the latter, but nothing has been confirmed.
Remember, other rumors suggest that Live Gold should soon be discontinued. One indication of this was when the Redmond giant ended its annual subscription plans for the XONE online multiplayer service.
