Samsung will announce the Galaxy S20 – the successor to last year’s Galaxy S10, and also the company’s next flagship product – at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 11.
According to rumors, Samsung will have 3 new flagship phones this year in the US: Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. There’s also a new foldable device, the Galaxy Z Flip, bringing the total number of new flagships to 4.
If you can’t wait to announce it, here is everything we all know about Samsung Galaxy S20:
S20 and S20 Plus
S20 and S20 Plus are direct descendants of the S10 and S10 Plus (if the old naming convention they will be S11 and S11 Plus).
There are three major changes Samsung may bring to the S20: a 120Hz screen, a new rear camera system with four lenses, and a new processor with 5G integration.
The 120Hz screen has leaked and there was even a video on the XDA-Developers site showing it being used. According to leaked information, you can only use the superfast refresh rate, for this much smoother animation effect, at FHD + resolution. High resolution WQHD + will only work at 60Hz.
S20 camera cluster has also been upgraded. Last year, the S10 and S10 Plus had three lenses: 12MP (77 degrees) wide angle, 12MP telephoto (45 degrees), and ultra-wide 16MP (123 degrees). The new S20 will have more superior camera specifications, including: 12MP main camera, 64MP telephoto, 12MP ultra-wide, and ToF 3D sensor only for S20 Plus.
These new phones also have larger screen sizes than last year. According to the leaked specs sheet, the S20 will have a 6.2-inch screen, slightly larger than the 6.1-inch S10. The S20 Plus has a 6.7-inch screen, similar to the S10 5G model instead of 6.4-inch like the S10 Plus. The S20 Pluss will have a bigger battery (4,500mAh) than the S10 Plus (4,100mAh).
In terms of design, the S20 and S20 Plus go in the same direction as last year’s Note 10, with a high 20: 9 aspect ratio, and a perforated selfie camera centered on Samsung’s Infinity-O display.
Both machines are expected to have ultrasonic fingerprint sensors instead of traditional optical sensors like other brands. It is not clear whether Samsung will reuse the old sensor on last year’s S10 (which is not very good), or replace it with Qualcomm’s new 2nd generation 3D Sonic Max sensor.
Lastly, many rumors confirm that, like the Note 10 and Fold, the S20 models will no longer have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The S20 models are usually good, but the real star here is the S20 Ultra: an ultra-premium flagship model with a bigger screen, bigger battery, and a truly incredible camera.
S20 Ultra basically has everything S20 and S20 Plus above, along with a few other features. The screen is still a 20: 9 120Hz panel, but the S20 Ultra is up to 6.9-inch, larger than the Note 10 Plus (6.8-inch) last year. The battery will be 5,000mAh, and RAM will be up to 16GB.
But the real breakthroughs on the S20 Ultra involve the camera. Like the S20 Plus, the S20 Ultra will have a 5-lens camera tool, with 4 rear cameras and 1 perforated selfie camera. But the camera hardware is different. Instead of the 12MP main camera, the S20 Ultra will have a 108MP sensor that Samsung has been working on for months. This ultra high resolution sensor will come with some software features to allow it to hybrid zoom (optical + digital) up to 100x – Samsung calls this “Space Zoom”.
The phone also has a 48MP telephoto lens, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a 3D ToF sensor on the back. The front camera is also upgraded to 40MP, compared to just 10MP on smaller models.
If the leaked information is accurate, then the S20 Ultra will be the largest, most powerful phone Samsung has ever made. Of course its price will not be cheap, up to $ 1,300.
Last year’s S10 series only supported LTE, only the new 5G Plus S10 supports 5G, all three S20s this year in the US market support 5G by default, and there is a model that supports many different carriers. Models sold in the US will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset, which already has 5G built-in, making the S20 series the biggest test for 5G networks ever.
In the international market, Samsung will equip the S20 Exynos 990 processor and have both 4G and 5G versions, at least for the S20 and S20 Plus versions.
Small screen version
Unfortunately, unlike last year, this year we have not seen any rumors of a replacement for the small S10E model, 5.8-inch screen. While the Galaxy Z Flip foldable phone will probably serve as a small device for small phone fans, if you like the S20, you have to accept the smallest screen size that’s already 6.2-inches. .
Galaxy Buds Plus
The Galaxy S20 is not the only new product Samsung will announce. The South Korean electronics company is expected to announce version 2 of the Galaxy Buds headphone product called Galaxy Buds Plus. Having a design quite similar to last year’s headphones, Galaxy Buds Plus is expected to have twice the battery life and integrated improved active noise isolation technology (however, they will not be able to filter real noise. like Apple AirPods Pro).
According to leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks), Samsung will give Galaxy Buds Plus free of charge to customers who pre-order S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. Condolences to those who love the regular S20!
