Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus: safe options

The Galaxy S20 family, as on previous occasions, have two different versions: Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus. This year, that is, the differences between the two models will be smaller than on previous occasions. It is expected that these two models will only differ by the size of their screen, the capacity of the battery and the inclusion of a ToF camera in the rear region. Everything else, in principle, be exactly the same between both teams.

The design of the new generation will be characterized mainly by three changes:

  • The screen will be slightly higher when adopting a 20: 9 format. The previous generation had a 19.5: 9 format.
  • The perforation of the screen is placed in the center, just like the Galaxy Note 10.
  • The photographic module adopts a rectangular arrangement and is chosen towards the left side, a location similar to that observable in the iPhone 11 Pro and the Pixel 4. In the case of the Galaxy S20 Plus, it should be slightly wider, because it should make room for the ToF sensor

Another important change, according to XDA-Developers, it is the curvature of the screen, which in the case of the Galaxy S20 be much more subtle than in previous generations. This trend could already be observed in the Galaxy S10 whose screen according to a radius of curvature smaller than that of previous models, but the company would have decided to take it one step further with the new generation.

The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus will also be the first family models to say goodbye to Jack of headphones, an element that Samsung defended in recent years despite the push of the rest of the industry. This step, although new for the Galaxy S family, is not surprising, since Samsung has already taken a similar step with the Galaxy Note 10.

As far as the screen is concerned, the new Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus will make use of the Dynamic AMOLED technology introduced with the previous generation. It is likely that the company has made minor improvements in aspects such as color accuracy or brightness, but no substantial changes are expected in terms of image quality.

If there will be major changes, however, in regards to the refresh rate of the panel, which will be able to reach up to 120 Hz. This functionality, as products such as the OnePlus 7 Pro or iPad Pro have already shown, makes any movement that takes place on the screen more fluid and consistent, creating a very pleasant sensation for the human eye. This, together with the new range of processors (Exynos 990 or Snapdragon 865, depending on the market), the high amount of RAM (12 GB) and UFS 3.0 type memory (faster in writing speed and reading refers), promises to significantly improve the user experience of the new Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus.

The high refresh rate, however, It can only be activated when the graphic interface resolution is rendered in Full HD + parameter that Samsung sets by default in all models of the Galaxy S family for years. Those who want the phone to render the user interface at the maximum possible resolution (QHD +), probably have to give up at 120 Hz.

In the photographic field, the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus will offer a practically identical experience. Both will ride a 12 megapixel main sensor with 1.8 micron pixels, which will significantly help in the capture of light in bright environments. They will also have a 12-megapixel resolution wide-angle camera and a third 64-megapixel sensor that, together with a specific lens, will allow you to make a zoom three times peak and hybrid up to 30.
