At the Galaxy Unpacked event, three flagship Samsung smartphones were presented.
Despite the fact that on the Internet you could find almost all the information about the new Galaxy S20 line a few weeks before the presentation of smartphones, interest in new products only increased every day. Now all the information about the devices is officially confirmed, so let's go over the characteristics of the devices.
First of all, I note that this year the flagship Galaxy S line will be represented by three models: Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 + and Galaxy S20 Ultra. They differ in the size and characteristics of the cameras.
Galaxy S20 – the most compact of the presented smartphones. It has a 6.2 ″ Dynamic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 3200 × 1440 pixels. Supported by a refresh rate of 120 Hz at Full HD resolution. The reading frequency of the sensor is 240 Hz. In the upper part of the display there is a cutout for a 10 MP front camera.
Exynos 990 or Snapdragon 865 chipsets act as a hardware platform. There is 5G support. RAM can be installed 8 GB or 12 GB. Built-in storage capacity is 128 GB. There is a slot for microSD memory cards up to 1 TB.
The main camera consists of three modules: 12 MP (main sensor, f / 1.8, OIS) + 64 MP (telephoto, 3x optical zoom, 30x digital zoom, f / 2.0) + 12 MP (ultra-wide, 120 degrees angle review). The smartphone supports 8K video recording at 30 fps, which the company especially emphasized during the presentation. Also, of the interesting chips, I note the possibility of shooting a "multi-frame" – in this mode, the device takes photos on all cameras.
The capacity of the built-in battery is 4000 mAh. Supports 25W wired charging, as well as wireless and reverse charging. Declared moisture protection according to IP68. Galaxy S20 will be available in gray, blue and pink.
Galaxy S20 Plus has minimal differences compared to the younger brother. The smartphone is equipped with a 6.7 ″ display with similar characteristics.
The main camera offers the same three modules as the Galaxy S20, but in addition there is a DepthVision depth sensor. Battery capacity has grown to 4,500 mAh. Available colors: gray, blue and black. In addition, a version with 512 GB of internal memory will be available.
Galaxy S20 Ultra became the most “charged” of the presented novelties, although technically it almost completely copies the S20 and S20 Plus. The differences are in the cameras.
As the front camera, a 40 MP module is used. It supports the function of combining 4 pixels into 1, as a result of which users should get better and more detailed photos.
The main camera consists of a 108 MP sensor, which even supports the union of 9 pixels in 1. 12 MP images with an equivalent pixel size of 2.4 µm are obtained. Optical stabilization is supported, the aperture is f / 1.8. It is complemented by 48 megapixel telephoto (4-in-1 pixel combining), 12 megapixel ultra-wide and DepthVision depth sensor. The camera supports recording 8K video, and also allows you to take photos with 10x hybrid optical zoom or 100x digital zoom.
RAM in the Galaxy S20 Ultra can be installed 16 GB, internal – up to 512 GB. The battery capacity is 5000 mAh. Supported 45W wired charging. Available colors: gray and black.
