Detailed Galaxy S20 series spec sheet reveals all: camera, battery, processor, more
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series hasn’t stopped leaking all week and today is no different – Ishan Agarwal has partnered up with MySmartPrice to provide a detailed spec sheet of all three flagships.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is a beast in every sense


The Galaxy S20 Ultra has so far been tipped as the highlight of Samsung’s next flagship lineup and today’s leak only corroborates this belief. It reportedly features a humongous 6.9-inch Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED display complete with minimal bezels, a small hole above, and AKG-tuned stereo speakers.

Support for a super-smooth 120Hz refresh rate, double that of the Galaxy S10, is also present alongside a maximum resolution of 3200 x 1440p (QHD+), which itself translates into an impressive pixel density of 551ppi.

Samsung has reportedly combined these elements with Android 10 and One UI 2.1 straight out of the box. The European and Asian models in question will pair this with the Exynos 990 chipset and 5G connectivity.

As for storage, it turns out the cheapest model will ship with 128GB and support for microSD cards of up to 1TB. A pricier variant with a more impressive 512GB is expected too.

Moving on to the external side of things, the premium device, which is IP68 water and dust resistant, weighs in at a hefty 221g and is, therefore, significantly heavier than both the Galaxy Note 10+ (196g) and Galaxy S10+ (175g) that came before it. It is, however, still a bit lighter than the iPhone 11 Pro Max (226g). 
 
Part of the reason for the huge weight increase is the ginormous 5,000mAh battery that Samsung has included on the inside. It’s expected to support 45W fast charging and should offset the extra drain caused by the larger display and 5G connectivity.

Another important reason for the added weight is the camera module on the back. It houses a massive 108-megapixel main camera that’s accompanied by a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter and a Time-of-Flight sensor.

A 48-megapixel Periscope-like camera that enables 10x optical zoom and 100x hybrid zoom is also part of the package. Other details include the ability to record 8K video at 30fps and a 40-megapixel selfie camera that can record 4K 60fps video.

The Galaxy S20 & S20+ are quite impressive too


The Galaxy S20 5G and Galaxy S20 Plus 5G are powered by the same Exynos 990 chipset as the Galaxy S20 Ultra. They also feature 128GB of storage as standard and support for microSD cards of up to 1TB, although some big changes have been made.

In the camera department, for example, the ultra-wide-angle shooter has been retained but the 108-megapixel primary shooter has been downgraded to a 12-megapixel sensor. Additionally, the 48-megapixel periscope camera is no longer present, with Samsung instead opting for a 64-megapixel telephoto shooter that’s only capable of 3x optical zoom.

The Time-of-Flight sensor is still present on the Galaxy S20+ but it has seemingly been removed from the standard Galaxy S20, presumably to keep costs down.

These changes are combined with a 6.7-inch and 4,500mAh battery on the Galaxy S20+, and a 6.2-inch panel coupled with a 4,000mAh battery on the Galaxy S20.

Samsung Galaxy S20 series announcement and release date


The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will debut alongside the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ on Tuesday, February 11. Pre-orders were initially expected soon after but it’s possible the company will delay them for a few weeks.

That’s because Ishan Agarwal believes shipments for the flagship lineup won’t commence until Friday, March 13.

Overkill for a phone lineup if you ask me. I still think the S20 should've had the 108mp Wide, 44mp Ultra-Wide with a TOF lens, Instead of its Telephoto unit, the 6.2" Display on the S20 is on point to match its rival, the Apple iPhone 11 despite apple only using an LCD display of course. I still feel apples lineup of having the "smaller" middle handset being a more premium affair over the basic 11 is a much better idea in terms of consumer view and marketing, so in some way it's a good idea Samsung have dropped the "e" from the naming.

Only thing left now are the colors. Hopefully, they'll do the prism colors from the S10 phones or bring back the flamingo pink. Also would be nice if they're bundled with wireless earbuds.

I really cannot stand the camera island, i slated pixel and Iphones and its a shame that this is the new design, huawei have had the best designs of camera modules as of late, i really hope the s20 Ultra camera is something standout, the specs sound really good, but we all know that more megapixels don't equal better quality, i really want more control in Raw, more settings available even if they are downloadable, less destructive imagery please, i love my note 10+ but zooming in on some photos, the level of processing makes the images look cartoon like or painted, i would like more control over this, i know it won't arrive but we can dream

I guess you won’t be buying new phones in the future as more and more vendors phase it out.

Funny how how phonearena didn't include the part where it said 100x zoom on the original spec sheet for the ultra. Obviously trying to not look bad because of their other article saying it can not ever be possible...

I did mention the 10x and 100x zoom in this story. I believe the other story you’re referencing is an editorial. That said the phone wouldn’t feature a 10x optical zoom lens, which is probably true despite what the spec sheet says. Samsung has likely included a 5x zoom Lens and combined it with cropping, hence the high resolution 48MP camera, to achieve 10x and 100x. Ice Universe backs this up, btw.

Kudos to Samsung for keeping Micro SD slot. I hope new Note will have it as well

S20 Flatter screen, micro SD card, -wireless charge & share and a 4000 battery & 128mb base are nice. It's funny that people even comment about weight who cares about weight I mean it's ridiculous in this small of a form factor to even worry about weight. And let's just hope we have the opportunity to scale down 120 something like 90 refresh. 120 os overkill & battery killer. I suspect the basic s20 will be my new phone for 2020

The ultra will be a beast phone but they ruined the design with that ugly camera setup. I prefer the s10 5G design over this thing.

Just happy to see the micro sd staying on all of the phones. Shame about the Eyxnos.

I'm waiting for sammy to put a modem and an spen in Galaxy tab s5e and call it note 11+ ultra. this trend of huge phones is ridiculous.

I don’t like big smartphones, but if I certainly loved large smartphones, then of course I would choose something from the samsung note of the series, more functional.

How about the non-5G variants?

It just changes the modem. Unlike last year they made s10 5G much bigger.

I don't think there will be non-5G variants this year

Are these coming with a 3.5jack? If not, I don't care what kind of tech is in them, wouldn't matter if they could play PS4 games

I don't think you will see a non 5g model now, like 3g and 4g before it, at the beginning the tech is new and cost restrictive but once the tech is readily available it will be phased in to become the norm, so phones that are currently called 5g will lose that moniker, and will just be Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra for example
