Just like for the S20 line, Samsung might ditch the Exynos 990 chip for Qualcomm's offering on the Note20 Ultra sold in South Korea. The phone will most likely sport a Snapdragon 865+ chip.
Samsung could be using the Exynos 992 chip based on its 6nm fab on the Galaxy Note20 sold in Korea. The chip will offer better thermal performance than the Exynos 990 found inside the Galaxy S20.

Samsung has introduced its new Exynos 990 with support for a 120Hz display refresh-rate. The 5G Exynos Modem 5123 is also in tow for future 5G demands. Production for both starts later this year.
