Samsung Galaxy S20+ Features

The dislay features increased touch responsiveness (240Hz touch sensing). The 6.7 inch panel has 1440pixel resolution with a taller aspect ratio, 20:9.

The main camera at the back of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ jas a new 12MP sensor with large 1.8µm pixels (compared to 1.4µm for the S10 phones). It has an f/1.8 aperture and features optical image stabilization (OIS).

The telephoto camera boasts the highest resolution sensor on a zoom camera yet – 64MP. Samsung advertises 3x hybrid zoom and up to 30x “Super Resolution Zoom”. This module also has OIS and a bright (for a zoom cam) aperture of f/2.0.

This 64MP module is also responsible for recording 8K video – the Galaxy S20 trio is the first to offer usable 8K recording. Note that a single frame of 8K video is 33MP, higher than the still resolution of many current flagships.

The ultrawide angle camera (120°) has a 12MP sensor and is shared by all three S20 models. The Plus model also has a Depth Vision camera for portrait shots and depth-based effects.
