Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra Unveiled

Yes, they are here Samsung unveiled a rival to the Moto RAZR, their own Galaxy Z flip which was teased 48 hours before the event for the new Galaxy S20 lineup. The company that sells the most smartphones have unveiled their flagship for the year and like the yesteryears, they are the first flagship for 2020. The Galaxy Z Flip may steal all the headlines but that device is here to take on the reborn Motorola RAZR whereas the new Galaxy S20 has a bigger competition: namely Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Pixel and obviously the exiled Huawei’s high-end phones.

Where did the S11 go??

Last year had S10 and it plus version preceded by the S9 and its plus version. So why the 20 not the 11? Samsung must have decided to take their version of the phones to year’s number i.e. the 20 from S20 is of 2020. This can be a marketing strategy as the human brain is automated to think the bigger the better. 😛 However, Samsung is the first to make this move which eventually others might follow or not we have to wait and watch.

S20 lineup has 3 phones that are one more than the flagship from the previous year but later added with the S10E (a budget approach for the premium feel) and a separate S10 5G but this year Samsung has integrated 5G to all its big boys so no separate model.

Kudos to Samsung as the latest and the biggest bad boy from the company has brought a phone that has turned heads and raised for their competitions by having features like:

  • Introduction to 100X zoom
  • 120 Hz of AMOLED display for multimedia and gaming
  • Offers 8K video recording
  • Battery capacity up to 5000 mAh for a flagship-grade phone within its sleekness.
  • It has brought a “Single Take” mode that captures 10 photos and 4 videos from just a button push
  • Integrates two forms of the 5G technology Sub-6 (standard) and millimetre wave (superfast)

And surprisingly it has followed Apple into naming the least expensive phone in the series with its standard branding i.e. iPhone 11 last year and this year the Galaxy S20. I personally think iPhone 11 was the most popular one among Apple buyers but I personally think people will go for the plus version than the regular 20 version.

Samsung Galaxy S20’s Overview:

The Galaxy S20 has the Sub 6 version of the 5G which is common and the standard and offers a broad coverage while the bigger brothers of the S20 the ultra and the plus variant offer Sub-6 and mmWave which provided higher speed in selected areas. Samsung redesigned its camera system resulting in improvement of the most asked by the users i.e. Low light photos, sharpness and zoom.

The new S20 and S20 plus have 64-megapixel shooter while the ultra-version has the eye-popping 108-megapixel shooter out of the box. These numbers will potentially improve the clarity of the photos but they’ are stitching the neighbouring pixels and the photos taken from the multiple lenses so comparing with DSLRs and the mirrorless camera isn’t fair.

The other big upgrade is the optical zoom where Samsung tried outrunning its competitors The regular and the plus variant get a 30X zoom while the Ultra variant gets a 100X hybrid zoom (yes, you heard it right 100X). The P30 Pro from Huawei last year had 50X so Samsung decided to challenge it by doubling the numbers. The S20 ultra uses the “folded zoom lens” and they explained that it folds sideways to the right of the lens. I must say it is pretty innovative and the makers are in for a fierce and aggressive competition.

Battery:

The Korean tech giants upgraded their battery capacity and here’s how the models measure up 4000mAh for the S20 4500mAh for the plus and Mammoth 5000mAh for the Ultra and power-wise all the models of the new S20 come with a 25W fast charger in the box whereas the Ultra has support for the 45W super-fast charging technology for which you buy a charger separately. They might have copied this from the Apple as well but comparatively the new iPhones come with an 18W fast charger.

However, the extension of the battery and fast charging is to power the 120 Hz AMOLED display. The display is going to be fluid, crisp and more smooth while playing videos and games. Most of today’s phones have 60 Hz while the new in the bunch like the OnePlus 7 Pro and the Pixel has 90 Hz displays. The new iPad Pro has the 120 Hz display.

The fast refreshing screen is an added advantage as all three S20s have 8K video recording at 24 fps and it makes a great viewfinder. S20 has also introduced the “ Night Hyperlapse” mode that can make light streaks from cars in motion, for example, is a definite tryout after getting hands on it.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Pricing and Availability:

Pre-booking has been started in certain regions including India. However, the Galaxy S20 series will be available for pre-booking by the first week of March in Nepal. As the price of the S20 series is live in India we can expect the launch of S20 ultra but, let’s see if S20 ultra paves its way to Nepal.
