Samsung Announces The Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra And Galaxy Buds+

Samsung has announced the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is Samsung’s new flagship device, featuring a 6.9-inch screen with a QHD+ resolution (511ppi) and a 120Hz refresh rate. The S20 Ultra display can be set to always refresh at 120Hz. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra features a 108MP main camera. However, you’re really capturing 12MP photos with this high-resolution sensor because it uses pixel binning to merge 9 pixels into one. This way, the imaging sensor absorbs more light in order to render photos with a wider dynamic range. That extremely high-resolution sensor also allows the Galaxy S20 Ultra to shoot 8K videos at 24 fps, which users can then stream directly to a Samsung QLED 8K TV.

The telephoto camera has also seen a big upgrade as it’s now using a 48MP image sensor with a “folded lens.” The results of this new zoom technology are a 10x “lossless zoom” and 100x space zoom. The Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 processor plus 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM in the base configuration. Additionally, this smartphone will come with 5G radios as a standard feature and a 5,000mAh battery. All of this flagship experience comes at a high premium though as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra starts at $1,399. Preorders begin on February 21 and the phone will be available starting on March 6th.

The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ have seen very similar spec upgrades as the S20 Ultra. For starters, the Galaxy S20's 6.2-inch screen and the Galaxy S20+'s 6.7-inch screen utilize Samsung's new 120Hz displays complete with the 240Hz touchscreen polling rate. These phones are also able to shoot 8K video and will be able to connect to 5G networks like the Galaxy S20 Ultra. You’ll only get a 12MP wide-angle camera on the two regular Galaxy S20 phones, but at least the telephoto camera is nice and sharp with a 64MP sensor.

The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ both feature the same Snapdragon 865 chipset with 12GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, plus 5G connectivity standard. Of course, being smaller handsets, the Galaxy S20 only has a 4,000mAh battery while the S20+ features a 4,500mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ will be available for a starting price of $999 and $1,199, respectively. Preorders begin on February 21st and releases on March 6th.

Last but not least, Samsung also announced the Galaxy Buds+. The headphones have seen is a dramatic boost in battery life that now nets you 11 hours of playtime on both the earbuds themselves and the case. Compared to last year’s Galaxy Buds, which only had six hours of battery life on the buds with an additional seven hours in the case, you’re looking at about double the amount of playtime.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ also feature 2-way dynamic speakers and 3 microphones for improved sound and voice quality. Additionally, the Galaxy Buds+ are now iOS compatible so you can connect them to an iPhone 11 Pro, iPad, or any mobile Apple device. The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are available now for $149.
