Samsung in the name of its new flagship smartphones jumped immediately from 10 to 20. But this is not the only change that the company made. There is no longer the Galaxy S20e, which will replace the Galaxy S10e. There are just Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 Ultra. But the most important changes in the design and stuffing of new smartphones.
Galaxy S20 Series Design
The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus have undergone significant design changes compared to the Galaxy S10 series.
They used a new type of Infinity-O display with a camera hole in the middle and it is smaller than its predecessor. The display is also less curved.
The rear panel has a horizontal layout for a rectangular camera body, in which the sensors are located vertically.
Features Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus
The Galaxy S20 has a 6.2-inch screen and the Galaxy S20 Plus has a 6.7-inch screen. Both have a dynamic AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a sampling frequency of 240 Hz.
Both phones have one 10-megapixel front camera. Those who liked the optional Galaxy S10 Plus front camera may be disappointed to see that there is only one camera on the Plus model.
Both phones are equipped with a Snapdragon 865 processor or Samsung's own Exynos 990 chipset. The processor depends on the market: some countries, for example, the USA receive Snapdragon, and Europe, Africa and the Middle East – Exynos.
The following are the configurations available for two phones:
8 GB RAM + 128 GB
12 GB RAM + 128 GB
Galaxy S20 Plus
8 GB RAM + 128 GB
12 GB RAM + 512 GB
The Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus will retain the microSD card slot, which will increase the memory capacity up to 1 TB.
Two phones have almost the same rear-camera configuration. Both phones have a main 12-megapixel camera with a sensor size of 1 / 1.76 inches. Samsung claims the sensor is about 1.65 times larger than the Galaxy S10, and is able to capture more light. There is also a 12 megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 64 megapixel telephoto lens with 3x hybrid optical zoom and up to 30x spatial zoom. Galaxy S20 Plus has an additional 4th sensor – DepthVision camera. Like the Galaxy S20 Ultra, they can also record 8K video, and can take 33 MP frames from your video.
The Galaxy S20 has a 4,000mAh battery with support for 25W fast wired charging, and the Galaxy S20 Plus has a 4,500mAh battery with 25W wired charging support. Both phones support both wired and wireless charging.
Like last year, an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is installed under the hood. Both phones also have a degree of protection IP68, which makes them safe to use, even if they are wet. However, it is important to remember that the warranty does not cover damage caused by liquids.
Both phones have support for NFC, eSIM, two SIM cards, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 and a USB-C 3.2 port.
Samsung says the Galaxy S20 series will ship with Live Caption support, making them the first non-Pixel Android smartphone with this feature. They also work with Google to integrate Duo into their phone app. Samsung has also partnered with Microsoft to launch Forza Street on the Galaxy S20 series.
