The new Galaxy Note20 series has everything you love and expect from the Galaxy range, and then some! With its lightning-fast S pen, intelligent battery and live sync capabilities it manages to keep up with Maps Maponyane’s busy schedule. It’s no wonder the popular TV presenter, philanthropist and entrepreneur is such a fan.

Launched in August this year, the newest addition to this range builds on Galaxy’s legacy in a big way and is Samsung’s most powerful Note series yet. The ultimate power phone, the Galaxy Note20 Series is built with the fastest processor of all Galaxy devices. It features cutting-edge technology and best-in-class mobile experiences, without sacrificing the iconic design.

Both the Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy Note20 Ultra are available in new mystic colours – soft neutral tones that transcend trends with a brand-new, textured haze effect that cuts down on fingerprints and smudges.

Maps was on hand at the launch of the Galaxy Note20 series, and we asked him what his thoughts are on the exciting new release.

What do you think about the new S pen?

It’s a huge evolution. The lightning-fast S pen response rate is now four times faster than Galaxy Note10 and that was already fast. One of my favourite features is the AI power styling. No matter what your handwriting is like, the Galaxy Note20 can neaten it up and allow you to add commentary to PDF files and graphics with ease. Being able to sync my notes with an audio recording of a meeting is a big win. So, if you record and take notes at the same time, you can go back and tap any word that you jotted down, and with the voice note replay, it'll playback the audio from the exact moment that word was mentioned.

Do you feel the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Series can match your level of productivity?

It does! In fact, it takes my productivity to a higher level. The Galaxy Note20 series enables you to get more done with seamless integration of industry-leading productivity. With my many roles from entrepreneur to presenter, I appreciate the all-day intelligent battery and super-fast charging capabilities as you can get more than a 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes. That’s my kind of performance.

So, would you be happy to use this device while working from home?

I would. Through Samsung’s partnership with Microsoft, you can live sync to your PC almost instantly. So, what you start on your phone, you can finish on your tablet or PC. And, once there, you can drag and drop files between phone and laptop seamlessly. Whether it is work or play, the Galaxy Note20 Series does the job.

For a someone like Maps who is always on the move, the Galaxy Note20 clearly ticks a lot of productivity boxes. Think of what it can do for you!
