The Samsung Galaxy S20 line: Big Leak of Parameters
Samsung has already confirmed the date of the presentation (Feb. 11), in which it is to present a new line of mobile flagship (S20) and apparently the next generation smartphone with flexible display.
Currently, a detailed leak of parameters of the upcoming Galaxy S20 line (formerly known as S11) escaped to the web. GSMArena.com.
Especially the 5G versions of phones, while Samsung should also offer mobile versions for 4G networks. Minor or larger differences in parameters.
But the leak confirms in principle that Samsung is supposed to lead the shamrock models: Galaxy S20, S20 + and also the best-equipped S20 Ultra. In addition, the Galaxy Z Flip with this flexible display appears to be added.
6.2-inch display: Galaxy S20
The basic model should simply be called the Galaxy S20, no S20e or Lite. It has a 6.2-inch Infinity-O display (with hole), a Dynamic AMOLED with a resolution of 3200 × 1440 pixels at a 20: 9 aspect ratio. The panel will support a higher refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, but according to some previous reports, we will have to reduce the resolution at that time – to a principle still fully sufficient at 2400 x 1080 pixels.
In the front opening, which will be centered at the top of the screen, find a 10-megapixel selfie camera. It will support recording 4K videos up to 60 FPS – in addition to selfie, it can also be used for video calls.
In the bowels of the new phone we have to find 7nm chipset Exynos 990 of our own production (for European models). In addition, the line should also offer Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. There is also mentioned 128 GB of flash space (as standard) with the possibility of using microSD memory cards up to 1 TB. RAM is not mentioned, but apparently we get 12 GB of RAM as standard on all models.
Triple camera at the back
When it comes to photo equipment, the Galaxy S20 has to offer a triple camera at the back. Widescreen 12Mpx, 64Mpx telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom (max. 30x digital zoom) as well as 12Mpx ultra-wide sensor. Supported here will be uploading videos up to 8K resolution at 30 FPS – that was mentioned before.
In addition, the presence of AKG Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, a 4000 mAh battery, and increased dust and water resistance (IP68) are noted. The operating system is expected to be Android 10 with One UI 2.0. The phone’s dimensions are 152 x 68 x 7.9 mm and the alleged weight is 164 g.
Even bigger brother: Galaxy S20 +
The second Galaxy S20 + (or Galaxy S20 Plus) will offer very similar parameters / options to the S20, but with some differences.
On the whole, a larger display will be expected, this time getting a 6.7-inch panel – but with the same parameters as the S20. The rear camera will be equipped with a special 3F ToF sensor (camera) and the battery will have 4,500 mAh.
This time, the phone’s dimensions will be 162 x 74 x 7.8 mm and the weight will rise to 188 g.
New maximum: Galaxy S20 Ultra
The trefoil models will complement the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which is meant to be the maximum within the new family of products. Perhaps it will not be a mobile for everyone and not only the expected highest price. It should be quite a giant between phones, as this time the display will be up to 6.9-inch – that’s already at the level of small tablets. The dimensions of the device are 167 x 76 x 8.8 mm and the weight already exceeds 200 grams – 221 g is mentioned.
However, the display will offer consistent resolution and support for 120 Hz technology. However, this will gradually decrease the display fineness as the S20 model has a PPI of 563, the S20 + has a 525 PPI and the highest 511 model of PPI.
The front selfie camera this time will be 40-megapixel, but still supporting 4K videos up to 60 FPS.
In the back, basically the biggest changes will happen. As indicated, the 108Mpx main rear camera sensor should really only get the highest model. What a pity. The 108Mpx sensor will be complemented by a 48Mpx telephoto lens, a 12 Mpx wide-angle lens and a 3D ToF sensor. We will be able to use a maximum of 10x optical zoom, respectively. 100x digital zoom.
The battery will also have the highest capacity – 5,000 mAh. Similar parameters have been reported previously. Of course there will be IP68 degree of protection or stereo speakers under the baton of AKG.
None of the models seems to have a 3.5mm audio jack. Of course there will be USB type C connectivity, Bluetooth 5.1 or Wi-Fi 6. The highest model S20 Ultra should also offer as a maximum of up to 16 GB RAM.
