Full Specifications Leak for the Samsung Galaxy S20

Posted on January 18, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Uncategorized with 18 Comments

With just weeks to go before Samsung launches its new Galaxy S20 lineup of flagship smartphones, the full specs have leaked.

These aren’t the first leaks, of course, but I think it’s fair to say that, with this new information, there will be little surprise left when Samsung does formally launch the products on February 11. The new leak comes courtesy of Today, Ishan Agarwal, who provides the complete specifications for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20 5G, and Galaxy S20 Plus 5G.

The three new handsets share some specs, of course. Each includes a 120 Hz Infinity-O Dynamic OLED display, a 7 nm Exynos 990 chipset (in Europe and Asia; Snapdragon in other markets), and IP68 water resistance, and each will ship with Android 10 and One UI 2.0.

But they also differ in some key areas, including the display size, the camera system, the storage, and the battery.

Each S20 family member will feature a tall 20:9 display running at 3200 x 1440, but the sizes—and the pixel density—of each will vary. The S20 5G is the smallest of the three, with a 6.2-inch display (563 ppi), while the S20 Plus 5G is 6.7-inches (525 ppi) and the S20 Ultra 5G is 6.9-inches (511 ppi).

The rear camera systems are a bit different between the models, with the S20 5G and S20 Plus 5G both providing a 12 MP main wide-angle lens, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 64 MP telephoto lens with 3X optical zoom and 30X digital zoom. But the S20 Ultra 5G camera system provides a 108 MP main wide-angle lens, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 48 MP telephoto lens with 10X optical zoom and 100X digital zoom, and a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor. All three can record video at up to 8K/30 FPS.

The S20 5G and S20 5G Plus will both offer a 10 MP front camera that can record video at up to 4K/60 FPS, while the S20 Ultra 5G will ship with a 40 MP wide-angle front camera with the same video recording capabilities.

Storage ranges from 128 GB on both the S20 5G and S20 Plus 5G (with microSD expansion to an additional 1 TB) to 128 or 512 GB on the S20 Ultra 56 (again with microSD expansion to an additional 1 TB).

And the batteries range in size from 4000 mAh on the S20 5G to 4500 mAh on the S20 Plus 5G to 5000 mAh on the S20 Ultra 5G. The three devices will weigh .36, .41, and .49 pounds, respectively.
