Samsung Officially Unveils the Galaxy S20 Smartphones

Samsung Galaxy S20 S20 Ultra

Samsung has finally launched the new Galaxy S20 smartphones. We knew these phones were coming and practically knew everything about them before their official launch. The phones were unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked 2020 event in San Francisco last night.

The new Samsung Galaxy S20 line-up is made up of three devices, Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. With the three devices, Samsung has ensured they come with improved camera systems, improved display technology and 5G support.

We are getting bigger displays with all three phones having over 6 inches of that. The Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra have 6.2-inch, 6.7-inch, and 6.9-inch OLED displays respectively. These are quite massive and especially the S20 Ultra. Each display has a refresh rate of up to 120Hz.

As You probably can already tell, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is the flagship of the three. It has a bigger display with an advanced camera system that supports 100x Super Resolution zoom. Not sure if everyone who buys this phone will need it but it is still nice to have. At least it will be something for people to talk about.

Take a look at some of the other Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra specifications.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra has a quad lens camera system with the primary one being a 108MP sensor that the company says allows ultra-high resolution photos. This is the second generation 108MP sensor and not exactly the one we saw on the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. Additional cameras include a 48MP sensor, 12MP one and a TOF sensor. For the selfie camera, we are getting a 40MP unit.
