Samsung Galaxy S20 / Galaxy S20 5G Specifications and Price

Samsung Galaxy S20 launched with 120Hz screens, 8K-capable 64MP camera

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.

With no “e” variant this year, the Samsung Galaxy S20 is the smallest of the new flagship trio. It features a 6.2-inch screen, roughly the same size as its predecessor (slightly narrower and slightly taller, due to the 20:9 aspect ratio). The screen has 120Hz refresh rate and 1440p+ resolution like the S20+.

The 10MP selfie camera hasn’t changed much since the S10 generation, but the punch hole is smaller and is now centered. The S20+ has the same front camera (note: there’s no depth sensor on the front unlike the S10+).

Galaxy S20’s rear cameras uses the same 12MP main module, 8K-capable 64MP telephoto camera and 12MP ultrawide imager as the Plus model. The only difference between the phone and its Plus counterpart is the lack of the DepthVision sensor.

Like the Plus model, the Galaxy S20 is powered by either a Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 chip, paired with 8GB or 12GB of RAM. There’s only one storage option here, 128GB, but again you have a microSD slot if you need more.

Samsung maintains the in-display fingerprint readers of the ultrasonic variety for a second year.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 is powered by a battery capacity of 4,000mAh and it also supports 25W wired. It goes without saying that both S20 phones feature IP68 level of dust and water resistance.
