Samsung will be unveiled on February 11, but as always with smartphones, we have all the details right now. Apart from the full specifications on all of the models, now we have a leaked photograph of the two Galaxy S20 smartphones next to the Galaxy Buds+ Bluetooth earphones.
The photo doesn’t show anything new. We already knew that both smartphones will have four cameras on the back and that Samsung will refresh the Buds for this year. Samsung will launch the new lineup to combat the iPhone 11 lineup, which proved to be very popular on the market.
The S20 lineup will actually consist of three models. The entry-level S20 will have a 6.2-inch display with a resolution of 1440×3200 pixels. The big upgrade this year will be the refresh rate, which at 120 Hz will trump all competitors.
Inside, the Galaxy S20 will have either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 (North America) or Exynos 990 (Global). It is expected that Samsung will offer a standard configuration with 128 GB internal storage and 12 GB of RAM. The user can further expand the internal storage with a high-capacity Micro SDXC card.
The standard S20 model will have three cameras on the back – 12 MP wide and ultrawide cameras, a 64 MP telephoto camera, and a ToF camera for sensing depth. The telephoto camera will be able to record an 8K video, which is a first in mobile videography. The selfie camera will have 10 MP, and it will be able to record 4K video.
The S20+, like before, will have a larger screen than the standard model at 6.7-inches. The resolution will be the same, as well as the refresh rate. The cameras will also be borrowed from the smaller model. That said, the battery will be larger – 4500 mAh vs. 4000 mAh.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the new flagship in the lineup, and if we can believe the specs, it will be a monster. The chip inside the Ultra will be the same as on the other phones, but this model will come with 16 GB of RAM, which is twice as what the closest competitors offer.
The cameras on the back will also be different. The “normal” wide camera on the S20 Ultra will have 108 MP, and it will support 8K video recording. The telephoto camera here will have 48 MP, while the ultrawide will have 12 MP, while the telephoto will have 48 MP.
Together with the ToF camera, this system will be able to produce 10 X optical zoom and 100 X digital zoom without a big loss in quality. Lastly, the S20 Ultra’s selfie camera will have 40 MP and it will be able to record 4K 60 fps video, also a first in the smartphone world.
All models will come with Android 10 and One UI 2.0 out of the box.
