For 2020, Samsung is replacing the Galaxy S10 family (S10e, S10 and S10+) in an unconventional, yet exciting, naming convention. Samsung is ushering in the Galaxy S20 and S20+ as the direct successors to the S10 and S10+.
The focus this year is on cameras and 5G . The S10 and Note 10 had specific 5G models, but Samsung has decided it's time for 5G for all — or at least for anyone opting for the 2020 flagships. The S20 and S20+ feature support for sub-6 networks, while the S20+ also supports mmWave.
Samsung's Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ officially launch on March 6, with preorders starting on February 21 . The S20 starts at $999 unlocked and the S20+ at $1,199, and both have the hardware to back up those prices. There's no successor for the S10e. Fortunately, that device, along with the S10 and S10+, is sticking in the lineup with a $150 discount on all models.
Here are the options for the Galaxy S20:
Galaxy S20 in Cosmic Gray with 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($999.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20 Cloud Blue in 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($999.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20 Cloud Pink in 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($999.99; samsung.com)
Here are the models for the Galaxy S20+:
Galaxy S20+ in Cosmic Gray with 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($1,199.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20+ in Cosmic Gray with 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($1,349.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20+ Cloud Blue in 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($1,199.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20+ in Cloud Blue with 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($1,349.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20+ Cosmic Black in 128GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($1,199.99; samsung.com)
Galaxy S20+ in Cosmic Black with 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM ($1,349.99; samsung.com)
If you preorder the S20 or S20+ from Samsung by March 5, you will receive $100 or $150 Samsung credit , respectively. You can use that credit toward GalaxyBuds+ ($149.99; samsung.com ) or other products, like TVs, accessories and tablets.
Let's dive into what makes the S20 an S20 and what makes the S20+ an S20+. Both are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. No matter the model, you're pairing that with an ample 12GB of RAM. So Android 10.0 with Samsung's One User Interface 2 should be quite zippy.
Displays on both the S20 and S20+ support up to 120Hz motion rates, which means y ou can swipe galore and not experience any soap opera effect . We went hands-on with it, and safe to say, we're excited about this.
There's a 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED with 563 pixels per inch on the S20. The S20+ features a larger 6.7-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED with 563 pixels per inch. These are Infinity-O displays that support HDR10+, and the front-facing camera (aka the charmingly named pinhole display) has been moved to the center. The camera includes a 10-megapixel lens with an 80-degree field of view.
The Galaxy S20 has a three-camera setup on the back that is similar to what we saw on the Galaxy S10 and S10+. It's a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens with a 120-degree view, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with a 79-degree field of view, and a 64-megapixel telephoto lens. It should be a nice setup and it supports Space Zoom, which gives you an optical zoom of up to 3X and a digital zoom up to 30X.
The S20+ has a quad-camera setup that includes the same three (ultrawide, wide-angle and telephoto) but also adds a depth vision camera. You'll also get support for up to 3X optical zoom and up to 30X digital zoom.
Rounding out the S20 is a 4,000mAh battery that supports wired fast-charging up to 25 watts. The S20+ has a slightly larger 4,500mAh battery that also supports wired fast charging at up to 25 watts. These support the Qi wireless charging standard and feature wireless PowerShare . This way, you can charge other devices, like true wireless earbuds or an iPhone, on the back.
