Samsung Galaxy S20
The Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra are the eleventh generation of Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone mobile device and the follow-up to the Samsung Galaxy S10 line of smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphones were released for pre-sale on March 6, 2020, and they have been developed to compete largely with Apple's iPhone 11 line of smartphones.
2020 Brings New Samsung Galaxy S20 Models
The Android-based Samsung Galaxy S20 phones were initially unveiled at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event on February 11, 2020. The three devices share many of the same features, including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 7nm processor, new 120Hz displays, 12GB of RAM, 128GB of base internal storage, 5G connectivity, the upgraded Android 10 (Android “Q”) mobile operating system, expandable storage options, and more.
Where the phones differ primarily is in size and screen as well as camera capabilities. All three phones offer a Dynamic AMOLED Quad HD+ 120Hz display. The Samsung Galaxy S20 features a 6.2-inch 563ppi (pixels per inch) display, the S20+ has a 6.7-inch 525ppi display, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra has a 6.9-inch 511ppi display.
Samsung made upgrading the cameras on the Galaxy phones a huge focus for the S20 line, most notably in the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which features a quadruple lens setup with a 108MP wide sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, a 48MP telephoto sensor and a time-of-flight sensor with 10x optical and 100x digital zooming capabilities. The baseline S20 model features a tri-sensor setup highlighted by a 64MP “Space Zoom” telephoto camera, and the S20+ adds a time-of-flight sensor as well.
