Samsung Galaxy S20 Design
Although Samsung Galaxy S10 was an impressive smartphone according to 2019 technology, but this is now not the case. As technology is getting advanced more and more day by day – therefore, users want to see improvements in every upcoming smartphone. Interestingly, Galaxy S20 feels good in hands – thanks to its horizontal camera block outback, chic metal frame, and curved display.
It has a camera block on its rear at the top-left corner, whereas the front camera is positioned in a small punch-hole for selfies and videos. The bottom, as usual, is having a charging port (Type-C) with a speaker grille and a microphone, whereas volume rockers and a power button are positioned on its left-hand-side. It weighs only 163 grams and measures 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm in dimensions.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Display
In terms of its display, Samsung Galaxy S20 is loaded with 6.2-inches display, offering users with an exactly 0.1-inches more display over its predecessor. All right, it does not dramatically change overall in terms of its size, but its maximum display resolution makes it stand out from a crowd.
It’s offering a maximum resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels, which looks more than enough for bright and shiny display. The phone has improved touch-sensitivity to 240Hz - hence, gaming is more responsive by only sensing your finger brushes on the screen.
It’s obvious that bigger display might be worrying for those with small hands as there is a demand for smaller one-hand-friendly displays, but the good news is that it’s impressively thin over S10 and grown taller than wider with an aspect ratio of 20:9.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Camera
Samsung’s every upcoming smartphone promises to offer users with more and more and improved cameras. For instance, Galaxy S7 replaced its predecessor S6, and now Samsung Galaxy S20 has replaced its predecessor S10 with a number of powerful cameras that are ready to take your photography to the next level.
The phone sports a trio-camera configuration – comprises of a 12MP camera, 64MP camera, and another 12MP camera. The main 12MP camera with an aperture of f/1.8 is inferior to S10’s camera sensor, which changes according to lighting conditions.
The next 64MP telephoto camera looks like a huge upgrade over S10 with a 12MP telephoto camera. The individual pixels, however, are smaller, whereas an aperture is quite wide instead of f/2.4. The 3rd 12MP ultra-wide camera used in S20 has changed too, but it has a big sensor as well as large pixels with the same aperture of f/2.2.
Thanks to its 8K video recording, Samsung Galaxy S20 sets new track-records in the world of smartphones. The 8K video recording is limited to 24fps, but it enables you to crop and edit videos without compromising on your video quality.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Hardware and Software
Very much like all other Samsung’s flagship smartphones, Samsung Galaxy S20 varies in terms of software, depends on where you live. The U.S. audience will be able to get their hands on Snapdragon 865 Chipset, whereas Australia and other countries will get Samsung’s own Exynos 990 Chipset – partnered with 8GB RAM and Mali-G77 MP11 GPU for Australia and Adreno 650 GPU for the U.S.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Chipset has a 5G modem – therefore, S20 is a 5G smartphone, but the Australian audience will have an option to choose either a 5G variant or a 4G variant with Exynos 990 chipset.
It runs on the Android 10 operating system with the company’s own One UI 2 on top. Thus, you get a handsome number of exciting features and a glitch-free interface and overall performance. The overall performance with a whopping 8GB RAM is obviously smooth and silky, whether you work on different apps simultaneously or play graphics-enriched games. The available amount of ROM is only 128GB, with an option of a microSD card to expand it further. However, if 128GB storage is not more than enough for you, 512GB storage of Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will be a good option for you.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Battery
With 4000mAh massive battery, Samsung Galaxy S20 is a nice boost from 3400mAh battery of Samsung Galaxy S10. This seems a lot of power for most of the users with new Exynos 990/Snapdragon 865 Chipset. It’s available with Super-Fast charging with a 2W charger in the box that is capable of restoring juice back from 0% to 100% in less than 2 hours. Interestingly, it can work like a Power Bank/Reverse Wireless Charging 9W that helps you recharge your other gadgets on the go.
Obviously, Samsung Galaxy S20 will do a lot more to steer in the 5G era as compared to any other 5G smartphones. Well, it’s not an end as 2020 will have something more exciting for customers – even than super-fast download speeds. Coming back to S20, its 64MP rear camera with other 12MP + 12MP sensors are real stars and shining parts, and overall, it’s a fine improvement over last year’s Galaxy S10. The phone indicates advancement in approx. every way, i.e., 120Hz refresh rate, colossal battery, state-of-the-art design, punch-hole camera, and much more.
Although it’s not yet experienced/tested by numerous online sources, therefore, declaring anything as of now would be too prompt. We are keeping an eye on it, and as soon as sources go through their hands-on review with Galaxy S20, we will have all the details here.
