Months of constant leaks have finally come to an end. During the Unpacked 2020, Samsung has presented the new generation of its family of flagship terminals, the Galaxy S20. As was the case with the predecessor device, the manufacturer has chosen to offer several models: Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 + and Galaxy S20 Ultra, each one aimed at different publics and pockets.
While share some components like the Exynos 990 processor at least in Europe, the AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz or 5G connectivity, there are some differences that are important to specify. Of course, we will be in charge of exposing you what are those characteristics that vary between the three available models. At the end of the publication you can find a comparative table with all the specifications.
Size and screen
The first obvious thing is that the size and weight will be different depending on the version. In the Galaxy S20, the input model, we find dimensions of 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm and a weight of 163 grams. It is followed by the S20 + with 161.9 x 73.7 x 7.8 mm. (186 g.), While in the S20 Ultra the measurements are triggered up to 166.9 x 76 x 8.8 mm. (220 gr.). Much eye to the thickness of the latter, is almost a millimeter wider than his younger brother.
Obviously, the previous variation It is also reflected in the screen size. The S20 boasts a panel of 6.2 inches (563 dpi), the S20 + of 6.7 " (525 dpi) and the S20 Ultra reaches until 6.9 " (511 dpi). Of course, the resolution is exactly the same in all three phones: Quad HD + (3200 x 1440 pixels), so the density of pixels per inch is reduced as the screen grows. AMOLED 120 Hz technology is integrated into the whole family.
RAM and storage
Even if Samsung Exynos 990 processor brings the phone to life, memory variations will be offered RAM LPDDR5 and internal storage UFS 3.0 Depending on the needs of the buyer. In the Galaxy S20 and S20 + we will find versions of 8 GB / 128 GB and 12 GB / 128 GB. However, the intermediate model will also be available in a third version of 12 GB / 512 GB. If you want to reach 16 GB of RAM, there will be no other option but to acquire the most expensive of the whole family, the S20 Ultra, whose variants will be 12 GB / 128 GB or 16 GB / 521GB.
As leaks already anticipate, the photographic section presents a significant inequality in certain cases. Let's start first with the front camera. The Galaxy S20 and S20 + boast a sensor 20 megapixels (f / 2.2 and 1.22 micron pixels). However, it is the Galaxy Ultra that aims to raise the list of self-portraits with its sensor 40 MP (f / 2.2 and 0.8 micron pixels). The third mobile also boasts Pixel Pinning technology that converts its pixels to 1.4 microns, thus obtaining more information on the capture. Therefore, photographs can stand out even in low light conditions.
When it comes to the rear cameras, the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 + integrate a main sensor of 12 megapixels (f / 1.8 and OIS), wide angle of 12 MP (f / 2.2) and telephoto lens of 64 MP (f / 2.0, OIS) with 3x hybrid optical zoom and 30x high resolution digital zoom. However, the big difference between both devices is that the S20 + incorporates a fourth sensor, the ToF.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra raises the bar to get rid almost completely of its younger brothers. Its main sensor is 108 MP (f / 1.8) with Pixel Binning technology that bring the pixels up to 2.4 microns. The wide angle stays in 12 MP (f / 2.2), while the telephoto lens is 48 MP (f / 3.5 and OIS) with 10x hybrid optical zoom and 100x high resolution digital zoom. Of course the ToF It is also incorporated in this variant.
Due to the disparity in the sizes of the three teams, the capacity of the battery is also different, and considerably. The lower performance smartphone has 4,000 mAh, while the S20 + and S20 Ultra scale up 4,500 Y 5,000 mAhrespectively. It should be noted that the 120 Hz refresh rate, which influences consumption, must be manually activated in the settings and only works in the Full HD + resolution; It is not enabled by default in any version.
