On February 11th, Samsung unveiled their latest flagship smartphones in the form of the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra.
As you would expect, each of the three devices in the range look great, pack incredible features and are future-proof, with all models being 5G ready. Bringing 5G devices to market across the board demonstrates serious commitment and confidence from Samsung in the continued rollout of 5G in the UK.
A notable change in the new devices is in the name, with Samsung leaping from the S10 to S20. It is of course, in line with a new decade, but it also represents a huge leap forward in Samsung smartphone capability.
Let’s talk about the camera
While all of the above points are incredibly exciting, the really mind-blowing feature of these phones (notably the S20+ and S20 Ultra) is in the camera setup.
The S20 has three rear cameras and the S20+ 5G and S20 Ultra 5G each have four, meaning your customers will never miss out on being able to capture a moment. The camera setup on each device, is split out as follows:
|Samsung Galaxy S20 | S20+ 5G||Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G|
|10MP front camera||40MP front camera|
|12MP Ultra Wide Camera||12MP Ultra Wide Camera|
|12MP Wide-angle Camera||108MP Wide-angle Camera|
|64MP Telephoto Camera||48MP Telephoto Camera|
|DepthVision Camera (Not available on the S20)||DepthVision Camera|
The Galaxy S20 Ultra takes smartphone cameras to a new level. The 108MP sensor on the wide-angle lens allows for seriously sharp shots that can be cropped and printed without compromising on detail. Space Zoom allows users to zoom in 100X to find shots they never knew existed. And 8K video recording completely revolutionises how users capture photos and videos.
This is just touching the surface, with a range of other features also found across the range:
- You can now snap a 33MP still image out of an 8K video
- Samsung has tripled the sensor size to allow for even better photos in low-light conditions
- Single Take from Samsung empowers you to take one shot and turn it into multiple formats, such as looped video, portrait pictures and more
- Samsung has introduced sophisticated AI that stabilises video like an action camera
All of this and a brilliant editing suite built into the phone which allows you to edit videos and photos, insert transitions and subtitles and change the speed.
Okay Samsung. We’re impressed.
The S20 range is looking good too…
Great design has become synonymous with Samsung devices, and the S20 range is no different.
A new rainbow of colours from Cloud Blue to Cosmic Grey comes to the S20 family in a sleek and glossy finish meaning you’ll look great on the go.
So to does the Infinity-O Display, first released on the Galaxy S10 and S10+ but refined for the new S20 range – it’s the sharpest, most vibrant display Samsung has ever brought to a family of smartphones. There is lots of screen real estate too, with a 6.2”, 6.7” and 6.9” display gracing the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra respectively.
All this within a relatively small frame that is thinner than the S10. How’s that for innovation?
Battery. Power. Memory.
The battery, along with most aspects of the new devices, have gotten a substantial upgrade. The S20 now boasts a 4,000mAh battery, there is a 4,500mAh battery inside the S20+ and the S20 Ultra powers its way through the day with a 5,000mAh battery, all of which are compatible with Fast Wireless Charging. The PowerShare feature released alongside the S10 also carries over to the S20, meaning you can help charge a friend’s compatible device, or your own Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds.
Samsung appreciates that all this tech and software is nothing unless the phone is physically able to power it. That’s why the phones boast as much as 16GB RAM (S20 Ultra only) which is more than some laptops in today’s market! This means you can multitask, switch between apps and use the device uninterrupted and at significant speed.
All three versions of the Galaxy S20 come with 128GB internal memory, with the S20 Ultra also available with 512GB. You’ll find microSD card support across all three devices too, meaning you can expand your storage up to 1TB – that’s plenty of space for pictures, files and contacts.
