Samsung Galaxy S20 Specification, Price and Release Date

Samsung Galaxy S20 Features

The Samsung Galaxy S20 is the smallest among the three new phones that was recently announced. It comes with a 6.2 inch screen, which is roughly the size of its predecessor. Just like the Galaxy S20+, the screen has 120Hz refresh rate and 1440pixel resolution. The phone does not come with an “e” model this year.

The Galaxy S20 still has the same 10MP selfie camera as the S10 generation, but the punch hole is smaller and is now placed at the center. The S20+ has the same selfie camera (note: there’s no depth sensor on the front unlike the S10+).

At the rear, the Samsung Galaxy S20 camera comes with the same 12MP main module, 8K-capable 64MP telephoto camera and 12MP ultrawide imager as the Plus model. The only difference is the lack of the Depth Vision sensor.

The Galaxy S20 has a 4000mAh battery, and the phone supports 25W wired and 15W on the Galaxy S20+. The S20 phones feature IP68 level of dust and water resistance.

The phone will be available in three colours as well – Cosmic Cray, Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink.
