Samsung Galaxy S20: Preview

Well, it’s time for new Samsung smartphones to launch. In 2020, the company launched the new lineup called S20. It has three smartphones called Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. Today, however, we’ll focus mainly on the S20 model. Let’s find out more about the newly arrived smartphone and its features.

General information about the release date and pricing policy

The new phone will officially come out at the beginning of March 2020 (in the USA) and later that month in other regions. If you believe it’ll be a budget-friendly model, you are wrong. The price starts at $999 for the 5G model. 4G variants will be more affordable. Keep in mind that S20 Plus and S20 Ultra will be even more expensive.

The main advantages of Samsung S20:

  • Impressive camera specs;
  • 3x optical zoom;
  • Great and large screen;
  • 5G connectivity.

  • There are more powerful smartphones in this lineup;
  • Top screen refresh rate and highest resolution can’t be used at the same time;
  • High price tag.

Now let’s go over the details everyone’s excited about.

Looking at the design peculiarities, it’s obvious that the smartphone got thinner but taller. Its ratio is 20:9 for the 6.1-inch screen. Compared to other models in this line up that have 6.7 and 6.9-inch screens, this one looks very compact. The smartphone is lightweight and can fit in one hand. However, some people are likely to find it difficult to navigate it with one hand only. The mirror finish and a selection of colors (Cosmic Grey, Cloud Blue, Cloud Pink) make it look very appealing. Although users who wear protective cases won’t notice that.

The impressive smartphone camera has already become the company’s main attraction. This smartphone is no exception. The model comes with three lenses: 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP wide-angle, and 64MP telephoto one. Other models in this lineup have even more impressive camera specs. For example, S20 Ultra ended up with the 108MP telephoto camera. This year, the camera also got the Single Take feature that uses AI to capture the best photos.

The phones also got the brand-new chipsets, more RAM, and some other minor improvements.

Other specs:

  • The model has Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display;
  • Display’s resolution is 3200*1440 pixels;
  • This smartphone doesn’t have the headphone jack. Users will have to pick between wireless earbuds and USB-C ones.
  • New Music Share feature to help connect the smartphone to Bluetooth speakers, car stereos, etc.
  • The battery is 4000mAh and can be charged wirelessly.
  • Using a microSD card, a user can expand the internal storage to 1TB.

The verdict

Based on what we know so far this is going to be a very good phone. Compared to the previous models, this one has more advanced features and extremely powerful cameras.

The new smartphone brings some minor improvements as well as some huge changes. Take, for example, the lack of headphone jack. It’s still early to say about the performance, so stay tuned for more updates.
