Samsung Galaxy S20 preview: This one goes past 11 with more screen, more cameras, more everything

    In nearly a month, Samsung will take the wraps off the brand new Galaxy S telephone, the primary premium Android telephone of 2020. It’s shaping as much as be an ideal one. Not solely will it convey the most recent processor, oodles of RAM, and tons of storage, nevertheless it’s additionally anticipated to make a serious leap the place it counts: the digicam and show.

    It’s so massive, in truth, it’ll possible get a brand new identify. A complete bunch of recent rumors and leaks (together with the picture on the high of this text) are claiming that Samsung goes to modify to complete numbers for the subsequent Galaxy S telephone and leap all the best way to the Galaxy S20 (so for the sake of simplicity, that’s what we’ll name it right here). This is all possible extra advertising and marketing than magnitude, however Samsung’s new telephone should be worthy of a ten-fold leap in numbering. Here’s every part we all know up to now:


    While the Galaxy S10 design left a bit of to be desired with its bizarre off-center digicam gap, the S20 guarantees to be a stunner. We gained’t fairly get the all-screen gadget Samsung is constructing towards, however leaked renders (courtesy of OnLeaks) and pre-production fashions (published by XDA Developers) present a handset with very skinny bezels, much less rounded corners than the S10, and a Note 10-style centered selfie cam gap. Nothing right here is groundbreaking, nevertheless it appears superb.

    The S20 will reportedly be sticking with the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor launched with the S10. That’s nice, although we’d a lot fairly see 3D face scanning.


    That’s plenty of display on the S20+, and it could possibly be quicker than ever.

    Around the again is the place the S20 will actually set itself other than the S10. That’s as a result of the S20 is taking its cues from the iPhone 11 and Pixel 4, not the S10 or the Note 10. Samsung gave us a sneak peek of its new digicam array in early January with the S10 and Note 10 Lite editions, which function a outstanding rectangular bump within the high left nook. Based on the photographs we’ve seen, the S20’s bump will likely be greater and considerably unsightlier than the Pixel’s, particularly the S20 Ultra’s, as seen within the render beneath leaked by Ben Geskin on Twitter. If the digicam is as improved as rumors recommend, nevertheless (see beneath), we gained’t complain an excessive amount of.

    According to this leak, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G has a really… distinctive design.

    One factor the S20 possible gained’t have, nevertheless, is a headphone jack. We’d be mendacity if we mentioned we had been stunned—the Note 10+ and Galaxy Fold dumped the headphone jack final 12 months—nevertheless it’s nonetheless unhappy. If the S20 does certainly drop the 3.5mm jack, the one premium Android telephone that has one will likely be no matter LG trots out this 12 months.


    With tiny bezels and little else on the entrance of the S20, the show must be higher than ever. Rumors recommend it will likely be: While the look gained’t stray too removed from the edge-to-edge Infinity show we’ve grown to like, it’s going to reportedly be greater and quicker than ever. And probably not as curvy.

    According to well-connected Evan Blass on Twitter, the S20 will are available in three sizes this 12 months, with the S20 beginning at 6.2 inches (he’s since revised his preliminary 6.4-inch prediction), the S20+ leaping to 6.7 inches, and the brand new S20 Ultra clocking in at a whopping 6.9 inches. That’s even greater than the 6.8-inch Note 10+, which was already pushing the envelope of pocketability. So the Ultra could be a bit of too massive for our arms.
