Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra don’t support Jio True 5G in India
The Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are two of Samsung’s top-end flagship devices. The company launched both flagships in 2020, featuring pro-grade hardware capabilities. Meanwhile, there’s bad news for consumers of Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra, about Jio True 5G support in India.
According to our research, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G smartphones don’t support Jio True 5G network in India. Jio deploying a 5G network with Stand Alone architecture in India to offer powerful features like low latency, 5G voice, Edge computing, and network slicing.

Stand Alone 5G is a software-centric approach, which requires smartphone vendors to release a special firmware update for the device to unlock the 5G network support. Meanwhile, vendors are somewhat cheating here with older models taking advantage of the “hardware limitation” phrase.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones are equipped with Samsung’s own made Exynos 990 (7nm) processor. Both of these devices are sold as 5G capable phones in the country, but now, consumers have to switch their carrier to Airtel or forget about 5G.
Jio confirmed to SammyFans that the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is not listed to feature True 5G support in India. The OEM can not release 5G-supported firmware updates due to application processor limitations.
By the way, it doesn’t mean your device won’t run the 5G network at all. You can switch to another carrier (such as Airtel), which is featuring non-standalone architecture. It doesn’t require any software update or support from the smartphone manufacturer but might lag behind Jio’s True 5G in some cases.
Galaxy S20 FE supports Jio True 5G, here’s why
Samsung released the Galaxy S20 FE 4G with the same Exynos processor as the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series in India. Later on, the company brought a 5G-supported Galaxy S20 FE, which uses Snapdragon 865 processor. Jio True 5G is supported on this device and users can enjoy the benefits post-SA update.

According to tipster YogeshBrar, Samsung’s most-anticipated Galaxy S23 FE smartphone has not entered the development chain so far. It indicates that the company has not any plan for the next Fan Edition this year, as it aims big, way too big.
There is no Galaxy S23 FE in the development chain unlike what the recent rumours have been pointing..
Samsung is instead working on the improved Z Fold 5 & Flip 5 along with a Tri-Fold that might finally ship this year
FE fans should look elsewhere…

Apart from focussing on the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 foldable phones, the South Korean tech giant is aiming to ship a new type of foldable this year, which could be a tri-folding device. As of now, there’s no information from Samsung about its plans to commercialize a tri-folding display device.
Since there’s no official information available on the tri-folding Galaxy device, we are sure that it will be equipped with Samsung Display. As it’s going to have a tri-fold form factor, the company may bring two hinges in the device so it can fold twice and take the shape of a tablet while fully unfolded.
Previously, it was reported that the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 devices would feature a new kind of droplet (waterdrop) hinge. This new technology is under testing internally, which could make it possible to lessen crease wrinkles as well as reduce thickness.
More than once, Samsung Display showcased its futuristic tri-folding OLED screen. At the time of getting commercialized under the Galaxy brand, Samsung Display’s tri-fold OLED products may be refined and polished to deliver experiences like never before.
Samsung boss flies to China ahead of the business summit
On March 23, Samsung Elec’s executive chairman Lee Jae-yong arrived in Beijing, China to attend a high-profile business summit this weekend. For the first time in three years, an official Samsung Group leader has visited China, where it operates major production facilities.
According to KoreaHerald report, the Samsung boss is scheduled to attend the three-day China Business Summit set to run at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse until Monday. He is likely to be joined by global business leaders and high-ranking Chinese government officials.
Among the key participants are Apple CEO Tim Cook, Mercedes-Benz Group AG Chairman Ola Kallenius and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.
Lee Jae-yong’s Beijing trip is drawing great attention from industry circles as it came shortly after the US on Tuesday announced the details of its guardrails provisions for its CHIPS for America Incentive Program, which limits the government’s subsidy recipients’ production expansion in China.
China Business Summit 2023
Under the theme of “Economic Recovery: Opportunities and Cooperation,” this year’s business summit will focus on opportunities in the Chinese market, stabilization of global supply chains, and the green transition, announced by the Development Research Center of China’s State Council.
Samsung in China
The Korean tech giant operates two chip production plants in Xi’an that produce about 40 percent of the world’s largest memory chipmaker’s global NAND flash products. In Suzhou, the tech giant operates a semiconductor packaging factory, as well as a manufacturing plant for home appliances.
Sources say the Samsung chief is highly likely to visit the company’s business operations and encourage employees there. In May 2020, the last time when he visited China, Lee met with government officials of the Shaanxi Province and inspected the Xi’an chip plants.
