I have to admit, while the Galaxy Z Flip may not boasts flagship specs, but damn, it has made phones like the new Samsung Galaxy S20 looks a little too mundane, doesn’t it? So, yeah, the Galaxy S20 is finally official.
Altogether, there are three models in the new Galaxy S20 series: the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and the range-topping Galaxy S20 Ultra. Samsung said all three devices “are capable of delivering non-standalone and standalone 5G capabilities.”
The main takeaway here is, IMHO, the new camera system with the Ultra rocking a 108 MP wide-angle camera.
Through the use of “revolutionary” folded lenses, AI and multi-image processing to reducing quality loss at high zoom levels, the Ultra has Super Resolution Zoom up to a whopping 100X. The S20 and plus, on the other hand, has 30X zoom.
Quite naturally, there’s also 8K videoing and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, or sadly, Exynos 990 for market outside of the U.S. I will be lying if I said I am not pissed with Samsung decision. We want no Exynos out of stateside and it will be a good enough reason not to buy a S20, whichever variant it may be.
Here’s an infographic on the overview of the specs (click on individual image for larger versions):
