Samsung will reveal its new flagship smartphone in a few weeks, but the specs and photos of the upcoming phone have leaked. Details and features about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20 sound phenomenal.
The next Samsung flagship smartphone was supposed to be the Galaxy S11, to follow last year’s S10. However, Samsung has decided to jump ahead and name its new flagship phone the “Galaxy S20,” which correlates with the year 2020. The new line will have three different models: the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra.
The S20 comes with a 6.2-inch 1440×3200 Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED screen with 20:9 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate. The front camera is a center punch-hole 10-megapixel selfie camera with support for 4K video recording at 60fps. There are three cameras in the rear with a 12 MP wide, a 64 MP telephoto capable of 3x optical zoom (and up to 30x digital zoom), and a 12 MP ultrawide. The rear cameras can record 8K video at 30fps. The S20 will have a 4,000 mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ features a 6.7-inch 1440×3200 Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED display. The cameras are the same as the S20, but adds a ToF 3D camera in the rear. The S20+ is reported to have a 4,500 mAh battery.
The premiere handset will be the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra that boasts a massive 6.9-inch screen. Nice. To power that gargantuan screen, the Ultra has a beefy 5,000 mAh battery. The front selfie camera has a 40 MP, and the rear camera has a gigantic 108 MP primary wide sensor, a 48 MP telephoto, a 12 MP ultrawide, and a ToF 3D camera. You’ll have a 10x optical zoom as well as a telescope-like 100x digital zoom. The phone will have 512 GB of storage with up to 1 TB of expandable storage with the Micro SD.
All of the models are expected to be available with 5G versions. The handsets will offer Dolby Atmos stereo speakers by AKG, 120HZ WQHD+ (3,200 x 1,440p) displays, IP68 water and dust resistance, runs on Android 10 with One UI 2.0, and uses the Exynos 990/Snapdragon 865 chipset that’s built using a 7nm process.
Tech tipster Ishan Agarwal shared the specs on Twitter.
Real photos, hands-on video, and concept drawings of the Samsung Galaxy S20 have been leaked online.
With all of these features and huge displays, the price tags will be exorbitant. Last year, Galaxy S10e cost $749 when it was first released, the S10 was $899, and the S10 Plus was $999. You should expect the prices to be around the same price, if not more, and cross into the $1,000+ range.
Samsung is having an event on February 11th, where they will finally unveil the Galaxy S20 models as well as the Galaxy Z Flip.
