Just like last year, there will be 3 different models (Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra) this year. The Galaxy S20/S11 series won’t come with a headphone jack, as Samsung has already dropped the 3.5mm jack from the Galaxy Note 10 series.
The Galaxy S20/S11 series will come with a punch-hole camera that is placed in the middle, just like with the Galaxy Note 10 series.
The Galaxy S20/S11 series is expected to come with a 120Hz display. For comparison, the current S10 series is equipped with a 60Hz display.
A high frame rate ensures that the screen is refreshed faster, which among other things makes a positive contribution to mobile gaming. There will be a better, faster in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.
According to the previous reports, the Galaxy S20/S11e will come with a triple camera, consisting of a 64MP main camera with 2x optical zoom, a 12MP wide-angle lens, and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens.
While the Galaxy S20+/S11 and S20 Ultra/S11+ will probably have a Penta camera setup. The main camera will probably be equipped with a 108MP image sensor – similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha. Possibly this high-resolution sensor is only integrated with the top model of Samsung.
In addition, both devices will be equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens. This zoom lens will also bring extra functionality, including a Space Zoom function. You can also expect a Bright Night camera sensor for the improved evening and night shots and ToF sensors.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra/S11+ will be equipped with the largest battery ever used in a Galaxy S-series smartphone, presumably, it is a 5,000 mAh battery. The standard model will probably come with a 4,500mAh battery and the cheapest model will receive a 4,000 mAh battery. You will also see the wireless charging feature.
In Europe and Korea, the new models will be powered by the Exynos 990 chipset, a 7nm processor with dual-core Gen 2 NPU announced in October during the Samsung Tech Day 2019 event in Silicon Valley. In the US, the device will come with a Snapdragon 865 chipset.
Price and Release Date:
We don’t have much information about the price, but there is a good chance that it will be somewhat comparable to the selling prices of the S10 series.
For comparison, here’s the pricing of the S10 series:
- Galaxy S10e — From $750
- Galaxy S10 — From $900
- Galaxy S10+ — From $1000
- Galaxy S10 5G — From $1300
On January 4, Samsung sent out press invites for the Galaxy S20’s unveiling, which is taking place on February 11, 2020. That’s a week before MWC, and it’ll be held in San Francisco.
