Samsung’s beefy Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus hope to blow you away
Feb. 11, 2020
Samsung’s leading with its best foot forward for this year’s Unpacked event. It’s still early days yet and Samsung does like to go first but this year it seems like they trying to frighten the competition into submission.
That’s not far off the mark, either. Samsung’s throwing as much power as they can at its smartphones this year, in the hopes that you’ll be convinced that a Galaxy flagship is all you’ll need for the rest of the year. Whether you’re actually convinced… well, that’s on you.
Galaxy S20 – The little big one
On the screen front, there’s a 6.2in display with the same 120Hz refresh rate seen in the S20 Ultra. Like we said, Samsung’s going all-in on spec this year. The only downside we can see is that they’ll have to pull something really remarkable out of the hat next year. Or release a basic iteration, but that doesn’t seem to be their style just lately.
Samsung’s packed in a 64MP sensor working with a 12MP main and 12MP ultra-wide sensor in the Galaxy S20, which offers up to 30x Space Zoom (there’s that Ultra’s influence again), as well as its new Single Take and Bright Night features, as well as something called 8K Video Snap. Guess what that does?
Galaxy S20 Plus – The middle big one
As is customary, Samsung’s S20 Plus is almost identical to the S20 — it’s just a little bigger and a little more expensive. It shares the Exynos 990 and 8GB RAM/128GB storage guts, and the 120Hz screen — though the screen size is 6.7in instead of 6.2. It’s still a dynamic OLED, and has Samsung’s skinny-ass bezels.
