Pre-booking aside, what do the two new flagships from Samsung bring? Let’s take a look.
Samsung Galaxy S20+
Unlike the previous year, this year’s “Plus” model is mostly limited to a bigger screen, battery and a better selfie camera than the normal. To begin with the screen, the Galaxy S20+ has a Dynamic AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate as well as 240Hz touch-sensing — both being first from Samsung. The 6.7-inch screen has 1440p+ resolution and supports HDR10+ with less curve, but the same width as the S10+.
Now about the crown jewel of the phone — the camera. The Galaxy S20+ has a main camera with a 12MP sensor with large 1.8µm pixels as opposed to 1.4µm pixels on the S10 models. It’s an f/1.8 lens and supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
There’s also a telephoto lens with the highest-ever resolution on a zoom camera yet — a 64MP sensor that supports 3x hybrid zoom and up to 30x Super Resolution Zoom. This one also supports OIS and has an aperture of f/2.0.
The same 64MP sensor is used to capture 8K videos, one of the first to do so. In case you’re wondering, the single frame of an 8K video is 33MP, which is higher than the still resolution of most phones.
Another one is an ultra-wide camera with a 12MP sensor and 120-degree FoV. The Plus model also gets a DepthVision camera for portrait shots and depth-based effects.
Powering the Samsung S20+ is the Exynos 990 chipset with 5G support (sub-6GHz and mmWave) out of the box. The phone has up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, while the base variant gets 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage with just LTE support. Regardless, both variants get a microSD card slot with support for expansion up to 1TB.
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ runs on 4,500mAh battery and supports 25W wired charging and 15W fast wireless charging. There’s reverse charging support, like previous models.
Samsung Galaxy S20
The Samsung Galaxy S20, this year, takes the spot of last year’s ‘e’ model despite being a spiritual successor to the normal S10. And with a 6.2-inch screen, it’s almost as same as last year’s S10 model but with a slightly taller and narrower body. Just like the S20+, this one also supports a 120Hz refresh rate and 1440p+ resolution.
The Galaxy S20 uses the same camera module as the S20+ at the back except for the DepthVision sensor. It also gains the same selfie camera, i.e. 10MP sensor.
The battery on this one sits at 4,000mAh battery with support for 25W wired charging. Both phones, without any saying, supports IP68 water and dust resistance.
Similarly, just like the Plus model, this one has Exynos 990 chipset. The RAM is also either 8GB (for LTE) or 12GB, however, there’s only 128GB of storage option here.
