The New Samsung Galaxy S20 - A Foray into 5G
For many people, the new Samsung Galaxy S20 range will be their first step into the world of 5G. Of course, 5G was available on previous devices, but only for those that wanted to pay extra to be the very first. This year, it’s the other way round, you’re sort of given the option to pay less to go for the non-5G variant of the S20 at £799. All other options, including the 5G activated £899 S20 will feature 5G.
5G isn’t everywhere, but if you live in some of the bigger cities it’s likely you’ll have it now, and of course it’s getting pushed out in many more places. EE has targeted 70 towns and cities for March 2020.
Whether your home has it now or later, you can expect speeds up to 1Gbps, which is almost worth the money for these new smartphones in itself. However, you can expect many more features for the new Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup too, so let’s take a look at that now.
The New Samsung Galaxy S20 Range Explained
Just starting with the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G, you can expect a pretty mind blowing experience. The new 2020 base flagship model from Samsung features a 6.2 inch dynamic AMOLED display, 12GB RAM, the Exynos 990 processor, and a ridiculous triple camera setup that's powered by a 64 megapixel telephoto lens.
It's flanked by a 12 megapixel wide lens and a 12 megapixel ultrawide. The Galaxy S20 can also record 8K footage, although at a slightly choppy 24 frames per second. 60fps is available on 4K, and a crazy 240fps on 1080p. Slow mo is available too.
For front facing cameras, you can expect a dual 10 megapixel wide angle lens. Smartphone manufacturers are of course going to tout their own devices, stating that they are revolutionary, but this year the jump to this level of video and photo fidelity really is very impressive.
The Galaxy S20+ is mostly the option for those that want the S20 in a bigger package. You get very similar specifications, but a larger 6.7 inch display and a fourth camera, which is just there for depth perception. Helpful, but not worth the £999.99 price for the camera itself. The larger display is, however.
And then we have the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra for £1199.99. This is an absolute beast of a phone that does go above and beyond. You get a 6.9 inch display and 16GB of RAM. You still get the Exynos 990 processor but the camera offers a completely different experience. You get a wide angle lens with 108 megapixels, a periscope 48 megapixels lens with telephoto zoom, a 12 megapixel ultrawide, and the same 0.3 megapixel depth lens from the Galaxy S20+. The front facing cameras have been upgraded too - you get a 40 megapixel primary lens flanked by a depth sensor.
Don’t forget the Galaxy Z Flip
The £1299.99 Galaxy Z Flip isn’t going to be everybody’s first choice when it comes to picking a Galaxy handset, but it is there for the brave and adventurous. The Galaxy Z Flip offers a folding phone design, but unlike the previous Galaxy Fold, it simply folds out to a 6.7 inch display design, and folds inwards to be more compact and portable. The troublesome side is that the specs are not what you’d expect for the price tag.
You're still getting 8GB RAM and a Snapdragon 855+, which is certainly reasonable, but you only get a double 12MP main camera setup, a huge downgrade from the Galaxy S20 Ultra despite the price increase. If you want to be brave, it’s certainly an option, but mostly it’s there for the tech enthusiasts and a way for Samsung to say that they haven’t given up with foldable tech.
