Although there are only a few tweaks done between Samsung Galaxy S20 and the elder Brother Samsung Galaxy S20+, we have talked about the elder brother in the S20+ lineup in another article as well, After reading the article about younger brother you can go with their elder brothers as it could be easier for you to understand the actual different tweaks applied. Samsung just unveiled their S20 lineups and clamshell foldable, the Galaxy Z flip! That is a topic for another article.
Here are the specs and features for the Samsung Galaxy S20 phone.
Spec sheet – Samsung Galaxy S20
Samsung Galaxy S20 is the true successor of the old flagships from Samsung for the year 2019, which was Samsung Galaxy S10!
This new phone comes in with a huge improvement in speed, camera, and screen from the last year’s flagships!
If we talk about the screen, Samsung Galaxy S20 is powered with 6.2 inches (6.7 Inches in the elder brother of Samsung Galaxy S20!), Quad HD+ Oled displays with support of 120Hertz refresh rate! And also as like many other flagships, Samsung Galaxy S20 comes in with the support of HDR10 as well.
As like, mid brother, Samsung Galaxy S20 also supports a functionality named “touch rate” which is also twice more than its refresh rate! This means Samsung Galaxy S20 is capable of a god “touch sensitivity feature” which means the response to touch input in this new flagships is twice as fast!
This makes the new flagships a way more different from their competitors as well. The design of the screen in the phones comes in with an Infinity O Display.
Samsung has also gone with a flat-screen rather than the curved which was introduced in older flagships.
Note: As the elder brother Samsung Galaxy S20+, even Galaxy S20 comes with a limitation that Samsung has gone with, it’s not a big limit, although this function is to save your battery usage!
The function is, as mentioned above Samsung S20 lineups come in with a 120Hertz refresh rate!
But the only limitation here is if you switch the phone to 120 Hertz, the screen resolution in the phone gets locked up to a 1080p resolution (2400x 1080 Pixels) and when you switch the phone to 60Hertz the resolution in the phone bumps up to the highest resolution 1440p (3200×1440 Pixels).
This won’t be a downfall in this device as this helps you to get more battery backup, so no complaints on this!
What is inside the hood?
The phone comes in with a huge 4000mAh battery with support of 25W fast charging as well. And you will get the support of wireless charging as well.
All of the S20 lineups are powered with a Qualcomm flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 865 (the First phone for 2020 to come with flagship processor from Qualcomm), although in few selected markets the phone will come in with the Exynos processor!
Then comes the Ram, Samsung has been increasing the Ram capacity year by a year last year the Ram was stopped at 8GB and now the new Samsung Galaxy S20 comes with a mind-blowing 12GB of LDDR5 Ram! And internal storage of 128GB and also you will get an expandable option as well.
Samsung Galaxy S20 is Ip68 rated as well!
What’s new in the Camera department?
The new phone has a camera configuration placed up in a Square module!
Samsung comes in with triple camera sensors, the configuration is 12MP+64MP+12MP cameras.
It comes in with12MP main sensor with an aperture of F1.8, then the 3X with a 64MP telephoto camera with an aperture of F2.0 than the 12MP ultra-wide Camera with an aperture of F2.2.
The new phone makes up a huge improvement in low light photos, light sensitivity as compared to their old flagships. And also the phone comes in with a high Zoom capability. This comes in the special feature section down below!
With the main sensor, the camera supported with the main camera in front of 10MP Sensor!
What’s in the software department?
Samsung Galaxy S20 comes in with a brand new Samsung’s One UI on top of the Android 10 out of the box.
What is so special in this phone?
Samsung has been teasing a lot more about the Samsung Galaxy S20’s Camera for a while!
As mentioned above, the new phone comes in with a triple camera module, 12MP + 64MP + 12MP is the configuration!
The new phone comes in with serious zoom capabilities! The phone is capable of 30x hybrid zoom and 10x optical zoom as well!
The rear camera comes with the support of 8K video support as well! But the thing you have keep in mind is for shooting an 8K video is 33 Megapixels per frame, and the main camera is 12 Megapixels! So here Samsung uses its 64MP telephoto camera for shooting 8K video as well.
But 8K videos don’t support multi-focusing or video effects as well. The 8K support in the camera department needs to be improved a bit.
What all colours does it comes with?
Samsung Galaxy S20 is said to come in with trio colours,
- Cosmic Grey
- Cloud Blue and
- Cloud Pink.
How much does Samsung Galaxy S20 cost?
We did make a previous post on the prediction price for Samsung Galaxy S20, our prediction was right as well!
As we said, the Samsung Galaxy S20 will come for a starting price of $999 roughly making about 70K.
Okay as everyone is making there guess on pricing, my take on Indian pricing
Galaxy S20 around 75K
S20+ around 85K
S20 Ultra between 1 to 1.1L
Will know the official Indian pricing soon lets see how far off I was 😉
