Take a look at these Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G live photos

Today, with less than one month to go until Samsung officially introduces its next flagship lineup, tipster Max Weinbach has obtained several live photos of the upcoming Galaxy S20+ 5G.

Centered punch hole, small bezels, curved edges


Corroborating virtually every major leak and report dating back to November, the images in question show a large Infinity-O display on the phone. This arrives complete with extremely small bezels, curved edges on either side, and a single camera hole that Samsung has now moved over to the center.

It’s believed the flagship in question will feature a 6.7-inch display, whereas the smaller Galaxy S20 and larger Galaxy S20 Ultra are set to use 6.2-inch and 6.9-inch implementations respectively. Despite these differences, though, a super-smooth 120Hz refresh rate is expected on all three devices alongside a 3200x1440p resolution.

An updated aluminum frame that's home to a speaker on the bottom and a volume rocker and power key on the right side is apparently part of the package. It's also going to house the typical USB-C port which should enable fast charging of up to 45W, something that will come in handy considering the 4,500mAh capacity that's expected on the Galaxy S20+.

Unfortunately, though, the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack has seemingly been ditched. If true, the new flagship will become Samsung's first S-branded model not to feature the legacy port. 

One more camera than last year!


Turning the phone over is where things get really juicy. Samsung has ditched the horizontal camera layout used on the Galaxy S10 lineup in favor of a large, rectangular module positioned in the top-left corner. 

The Galaxy S20+ features an impressive quadruple-camera setup that’s reportedly led by a significantly upgraded 12-megapixel camera. This will allegedly be paired with a more advanced wide-angle shooter, a 2x telephoto zoom alternative, and a dedicated macro camera rather than the increasingly common Time-of-Flight sensor.

To compare, Samsung is expected to ditch the macro camera on the standard Galaxy S20 in a bid to better differentiate the two models and ensure a large enough profit margin. As for the premium Galaxy S20 Ultra, it's so far expected to adopt an even more versatile Penta-camera layout that’s evident by the sheer size of the module in leaked renders.

The ultra-wide-angle and macro cameras are rumored to be present, yet this time an advanced 5x zoom periscope snapper is expected to accompany a Time-of-Flight sensor. The biggest highlight, however, will undoubtedly be the all-new 108-megapixel camera that Samsung has developed exclusively for the phone. The latter will offer an even larger pixel size and should allow for high levels of hybrid zoom thanks to pixel binning technology.

Samsung Galaxy S20 series announcement and release date


The entire Galaxy S20 series is set to arrive at Unpacked on Tuesday, February 11. Samsung is expected to announce the devices alongside the foldable Galaxy Z Flip and the upcoming Galaxy Buds+.

Pre-orders should begin the following day before shipments start on Friday, February 21. The models available in the United States should feature the Snapdragon 865 and 5G support as standard, but this won’t be the case internationally.

That’s because Samsung is expected to fit those devices with its homegrown Exynos 990 chipset. The latter will be paired with a 5G modem as standard on the Galaxy S20 Ultra and a 4G LTE modem on the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+, although 5G variants of these two phones are expected too.

The camera module looks so uninspired. One can really see that Samsung‘s designers are over-challenged by handling so many cameras. The camera module looks entirely generic and could be from any phone maker except Apple. Somehow, only Apple is able to design its phones so that one can instantly identify them as an iPhone. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you need to like Apple‘s Design but at least you recognize it at once as an Apple design.

Maybe your IQ isn’t high enough to understand a basic design concept.

Maybe you prefer antiques to on-trend design if you think Apple is the pinnacle of design. Can't stop laughing... Keep up the comedy

You seem to be incapable to understand my original comment. My comment is not at all about the personal preference of a specific design. My comment is about creating a design that is unique enough to be regarded special. A premium brand needs to stand out by a unique enough design so that this brand can be recognized instantly.

Well, that Apple camera design is not unique. It looks like a Huawei from from 2 yrs ago.

You have serious issues fanboy. His comment wasn't even what you are accusing him of. Comprehension issues?

Kiddo, there seems to be almost no difference left between design of Samsung A series and lower series devices and the new S series. And that isn't even a remotely good thing. When i buy my $1100 S20+ or Ultra, i want it to look unique, not like every other cheap ar$e Samsung out there.

The only other phone you can get this mixed up with is the Pixel line based on the camera at the back. The reason you can tell its an iPhone is because of the applie logo on the back.....

Nope. The special thing about Apple‘s camera design is not the square shape camera bump. The special thing is the two or three identical lenses on top of the bump. These lenses pronounce each of the two or three cameras in a unique way so that the iPhone 11 series can be instantly recognized as an iPhone. And this is what Apple‘s design team does much better than Samsung‘s.

Do not bring up Apple in a Samsung-article even if it makes sense. They will not comprehend anything logical after they’ve read “Apple” in any form of positivity. No Apple or bash Apple or they’ll miss your point.

Mi 8 is a 96% laike copy of iphone X. Other can make an iphone android if they want.

That’s still not what he means. He means something that is unique and distinguished from any other Smartphone.

Hard disagree. Looks like a Domino, and it's fairly unique as most square camera bumps haven't grown to rectangles yet, or have the flash somewhere weird. I think its immediately recognizable, at least for now.

I agree with everything you said. Typed on my Note 10+ (and not looking forward to the design of the Note 11).

What a blinkered and ridiculous statement. Trying to excuse a design by saying it creates an "identity" is pathetic. The notch on an iPhone is plain ugly and reduced the usable area of a screen, the rear camera sensor is also ugly and causes excessive wobble on a table. This may give the iPhone an "identity" but it is not good design. Your statement is made worse by the fact that the Infinity O display and curved edges do give it an "identity", just as much as an iPhones notch and camera hump does. The difference is it is a beautiful looking phone with an uninterrupted, high screen to body ratio screen.

I agree with you. S10+'s look was way more unique, very recognizable from the front and the back.

Who the hell cares about the design of the camera as long as the phone takes fantastic pictures. People are so stupid making comments about the design as if they are going to be staring at the back of their phones all day admiring or not admiring the design.

Mbuzzers, you just made the most sensible comment on this thread. People on here arguing like women about the design. Who cares?! I care about the functionality and nothing more.

Looks like the button placement has changed...That's so stupid!

When a phone is so awesome, people are whining about rectangles and button placement. *shrugs*

12. Well-Manicured-Man

Posts: 727; Member since: Jun 16, 2015

That is understandable. When you pay a lot of money for a premium phone, you do not only want to buy great technology but also great design.

Exactly! People will just find anything to complain about....no matter how dumb and unimportant it is.

Oh I don't know....button placement is only affects you THOUSANDS of times. No need to change it from it where it was on the S10 especially in this case moving it other side of the phone! Again, this is stupid decision from Sammy! When I'm deciding if I'm going to spend $1200 on a device I will complain about something dumb!

We dont know the official specs yet. But we are whining because this phone isnt cheap, we all know that, and it looks like the A series, that is really disappointing

Unfortunately Samsung is following in the footsteps of the Chinese.
