Check out these live photos of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G would be the top-of-the-line phone for most manufacturers. After all, the phone carries a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display sporting a 1440 x 3200 resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. And the 120Hz refresh rate means that users will enjoy a smoother scrolling experience, and the screen will redraw more often for improved video game animation. In most markets, the new Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform will power the phone (although in Europe, the Exynos 990 SoC will be under the hood).

So far, this phone certainly sounds like it would the most premium model offered by a manufacturer. Toss in 12GB of memory, 128GB of storage, a quad-camera setup (12MP primary + 64MP telephoto+ 12MP ultra-wide+Time of Flight depth sensor) and a 4500mAh capacity battery and you have a beast of a phone. But as far as Samsung is concerned, the Galaxy S20+ 5G is the runner-up to the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. The Galaxy S20+ 5G will be available in Cloud Blue, Cosmic Black and Cosmic Grey with a price expected to be just under $1,000.

The Galaxy S20+ 5G will be introduced this coming Tuesday, February 11th. Pre-orders could start the same day and a recent leak indicates a release date as soon as February 20th. Today, tipster Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) shared a couple of photographs of the device. 


As you can see from the photos, the Galaxy S20+ 5G will have thin bezels all the way around the screen with a centered punch-hole camera (10MP). An in-display fingerprint scanner will unlock the device and verify the user's identity for mobile payments. As we said, most phone manufacturers would be extremely pleased to call this device its top-of-the-line smartphone. And many consumers would be very pleased to have the Galaxy S20+ as their daily driver.

A lot of content is being shot in these longer aspect ratios and as a lot of people consume media on them (like Netflix) there will be plenty of takers. I agree 18:9 is enough, entering Sony 'remote control' territory after this.

With all these new sizes of phones I don't really see the purpose of the note

There are already rumors that Samsung will be dropping the Note line and instead integrating it into the Galaxy S line. I foresee them integrating it into the Galaxy Fold line. Either way, the Note as people know it now will no longer be a thing in the near future.

so the SNote? or simply NoteS?

The Note hasn't been about just size for years now. The Note 5 was just as large as the S6 Edge plus of the same year for example. It's the pen that sets it apart, as the name also suggests.

The Note is way more than just size. SMH. Now if you said, "With the size of the S being close to the Note, they should just make a Galaxy S & a Galaxy S Note with all of the Note features" that would've made more sense.

No thanks Samsung, 20:9 is way too long and narrow, I hate this aspect ratio, the best aspect ratio for bezeless phones is 18:9. No need to go higher, only makes it worse. It's only to advertise a "bigger" screen, which is just as big but taller and the extra height is useless for most useless and has mainly negative effects. So yeah no thanks.

Exactly. My Nexus 6 at 5.96 inches actually has more viewing area watching a 16x9 video versus a 6.9 inch 20x9 display.

But the 20:9 phone will have more screen area in a smaller footprint. Not a bad compromise, I'd say.

You miss the point, 20:9 will be taller but the extra height is useless, we don't want it. So it is a bad compromise.

We who? For those of you who "don't want it" there'll be tons of people who do.

It's not about marketing a bigger screen. People don't realize that for these companies, whether it's Samsung or anyone else, they need bigger footprint to add those extra hardware features that people are looking for. 4500+ mah batteries, triple and quad cameras wouldn't have been possible in phones that were released 3 and 4 years ago.

You miss 18:9 phones, whereas I miss sub 4.5" 15:9 phones which were pretty much the norm back in early 2010s...
