Samsung Galaxy S20+ / Galaxy S20+ 5G Specifications and Price

Samsung has finally unveiled the Galaxy S20 series – Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra. The Korean giant tends to build on the successful principle of the S10 generation with notable improvements to the screen, battery and especially the camera.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ boast of a Dynamic AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, a first for Samsung, and features increased touch responsiveness (240Hz touch sensing). It has a 6.7-inch display panel with 1440p+ resolution with a taller aspect ratio than before, 20:9. What this means is that the phone is the same width as the S10+, but slightly taller.

The main camera on the back has a new 12MP sensor with large 1.8µm pixels (compared to 1.4µm for the S10 phones). It has an f/1.8 aperture and features optical image stabilization (OIS).

The telephoto camera boasts the highest resolution sensor on a zoom camera yet – 64MP. Samsung advertises 3x hybrid zoom and up to 30x “Super Resolution Zoom”. This module also has OIS and a bright (for a zoom cam) aperture of f/2.0.

This 64MP module is also responsible for recording 8K video – the Galaxy S20 trio is the first to offer usable 8K recording. Note that a single frame of 8K video is 33MP, higher than the still resolution of many current flagships.

The ultrawide angle camera (120°) has a 12MP sensor and is shared by all three S20 models. The Plus model also has a DepthVision camera for portrait shots and depth-based effects.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ is powered by a Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 chipset (region dependent, as usual). It comes with 5G connectivity (sub-6GHz and mmWave) by default, though some countries will receive 4G models. The base configuration has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but there are options for more – 12GB RAM and up to 512GB storage. The microSD slot lives on, giving you the option to add cards up to 1TB.

The Galaxy S20+ has a 4,500mAh battery and supports 25W wired charging (using the included power brick). It can also do fast wireless charging (15W) and act as a wired or wireless power bank for your other gadgets.
