The Galaxy S10e was an underestimated change for Samsung. Even if you thought they were just copying Apple, which had introduced a phone of less than $ 800 a month earlier, having a real "budget" flagship was more than welcome. So with Samsung learning from his mistakes, fans should be excited about the upcoming sequel.
Although we always felt that the S10e was the best option out of the three in the series, the sale says otherwise. First week sales indicated that it was the worst-selling phone in the S10 series because it was a hard upgrade for those coming from a Galaxy S8 or S9. Samsung apparently noticed this, because early rumors indicate that the Galaxy S20 will remedy many of the shortcomings, starting with a new name, the Galaxy S20. Galaxy S1
The Galaxy S20 seems to narrow the gap between his and his predecessor. By making a formidable upgrade of the Samsung Galaxy S10 +, Samsung hopes to mitigate the slow start of its predecessor.
The S20 gets a huge screen upgrade to 6.2 inches. It will no longer have a flat display, but will instead share the same curved edges as the rest of the series. The battery gets a hefty boost to just shorter than the S10 +, while it probably retains the lower resolution (which means a better battery life). And, like its predecessor, it should sell at a price of less than $ 800.
The Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 + and S20 Ultra are announced on February 11, 2020 in San Francisco, CA. Samsung will announce the entire Galaxy S20 series in addition to the sequel to the Galaxy Fold. Preorders must start the day after the announcement with the actual release date within a few weeks.
- Release Date: March 2020
- Pre-Order Date: February 2020
- Announcement Date: February 11, 2020
Rumors indicate that storage capacity is largely the same as last year. The Galaxy S20S has a 128 GB and a 256 GB model. With these storage options, the average consumer gets more than enough capacity for all his photos & videos, while preventing each variant from becoming too expensive. You can have bad luck this time for those microSD card users out there. Because it is placed in the Base-tier Note 10, we think they can do the same for the Galaxy S20.
- Available storage: 128 GB, 256 GB
- Specification: UFS 3.0  Expandable storage: no
So far we have not had any rumors or leaking about the price of the phone. But a lot has changed since they introduced the S10e in early 2019. Apple lowered the price of its budget-friendly flagship, the iPhone 11, by $ 50 compared to its predecessor MSRP.
The result is an even more attractive offer for people who are looking for their first smartphone or who are not tied to one operating system. To counter this, we saw that Samsung also dropped the prices of the Galaxy S20 to match the iPhone 11 with $ 699, but nothing has been confirmed.
- Price: from $ 699– $ 799
According to Ishan Agarwal the Galaxy S20 comes in at least three colors: blue, gray and pink. Both the front and back must be at least Gorilla Glass 5. The frame must again be aluminum, which minimizes weight and yet remains durable for most drops.
- Frame: aluminum, glass (Gorilla Glass)  Finish: blue, gray, pink
Despite the increase in battery capacity by 900 mAh, the S20 has the same thickness as its predecessor at 0.31 inch. Thanks to the new 20: 9 aspect ratio, it has succeeded in drastically increasing the screen size and only marginally increasing the height of the phone (it is actually narrower than the Galaxy S10e). This will make usability even more difficult, but there is at least one-handed mode and Bottom Quick Setting.
There is no reason to believe that it will not have an IP68 rating again. What matters is whether it will be limited to 1.5 m of water or higher to match the iPhone 11.
- Height: 5.9 inch
- Width: 2.72 inch
- Depth: 0.31 inch
- Weight: Unknown
- Dust / water resistance: IP68 under IEC standard 60529
- Supported carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint
- Infrared blaster: no
The Galaxy S20 runs Android 10 out of the box. Samsung is already testing one UI 2 (running on Android 10) on different phones, including the Galaxy S10 + in the US, so you can be sure that the final version is only a few months away.
Running on top of Android 10 is one UI 2. The latest upgrade from Samsung adds the dark mode to more apps and reduces parts of the user interface to make it more accessible, especially with the larger screen. It is not a huge upgrade (on the side of Samsung), but with the addition of the features of Android 10, there is more than enough reason to get excited.
The Galaxy S20 increases the screen size to 6.2 inches. It will use a new 20: 9 aspect ratio, slightly increasing the resolution to 2400 x 1080. Samsung would change the name of the improved screen again, called SAMOLED. It supports HDR10 + and, unlike last year, has a curved screen.
We do not know whether the S20 will have the same 120 Hz refresh rate as its more expensive siblings. Although we could see that Samsung omitted this feature to keep costs down, rumors indicate that it will find its way to the cheaper S20.
- Screen size: 6.2 inch
- Screen resolution: 2400 x 1080 pixels
- Total number of pixels: 2,592,000 pixels
- Pixel density: or 424 ppi
- Screen type: SAMOLED

Performance  The Galaxy S20 is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. This SoC offers 20% higher CPU performance and 17-20% higher GPU performance. It uses the same tri-cluster core configuration with one gold core clocked higher than three other gold cores (for a total of four), paired with four silver cores.
RAM must be the same configuration as last year, with the input model with 6 GB. This year the RAM could upgrade to LPDDR5X, which has better energy efficiency, so the overall battery life should improve.
- Memory: 6 GB or 8 GB LPDDR5X
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865  Chip size: 7 nanometer
- CPU frequency: 2.84 GHz ( 1x A77), 2.42 GHz (3x A77) and 1.8 GHz (4x A55)
- CPU cores: 8 cores (1 + 3 gold cores, 4 silver cores)
- GPU: Adreno 650
- GPU frequency: 587 MHz
Rumors that the Galaxy S20 increases the battery size by 900 mAh to 4,000 mAh. That is 100 mAh smaller than the Galaxy S10 +, with a smaller screen, lower resolution and energy-efficient SoC.
We expect support for Super Fast Charging, but not for 2.0. This would mean that although it would get a much faster 25 W charger in the box, unlike the Galaxy S11 and S11 +, it does not support the $ 49.99 45 W charger. Regarding wireless charging, we do not expect any changes between the three phones that support Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and PowerShare.
- Battery: rechargeable lithium ion
- Capacity: 4,000 mAh, 3.85 volts (15.4 watt hours)
- Wired charging: yes, Super Fast Charging ( 25 W)
- Wireless charging: yes, Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 (15 W)
We know that the front camera is centered instead of to the right, and the hole is smaller than the one on the Note 10. Samsung can integrate a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor to enable face recognition, but this is not confirmed for the S20 variant. We expect 4K support to return at 60 fps, but nothing is confirmed.
- Resolution: minimum 10 MP
- Aperture: Unknown
- Zoom: Unknown
- Flash: yes, screen flash
- Image stabilization: yes, EIS
- RAW support: yes
- Object detection: yes, face
- Formats: JPEG, RAW
Samsung has the officially announced the ISOCELL Bright HMX, a 108 MP sensor. Rumors indicate that the second iteration of this sensor, known as the ISOCELL Bright HM1, will serve as the main camera on the Galaxy S20 (in addition to the Galaxy S20 + and S20 Ultra).
Those 108 megapixels are not lost. Samsung uses pixel binning with 9 adjacent pixels in the sensor to produce a single, larger pixel in your photo. This means that the required photos are 12 MP (still 50% higher than 4K), but the effective pixel size is now 2.4 µm instead of the actual pixel size of 0.8 µm.
Leaks indicate that the S20 has three rear camera & # 39; s: the 108 MP main camera, a 48 MP sensor with a telephoto lens in front, and another sensor with unknown resolution with an ultra-wide lens. However, it will not have a ToF sensor like the more expensive S11 variants.
- Resolution: 108 MP (primary), Unknown (ultra wide), 48 MP (telefoto)
- Sensor size: 0.8 µm (primary), unknown (ultra wide), unknown (telefoto)  aperture: unknown (primary), unknown (ultra wide), unknown (telefoto)
- zoom: Unknown (optical), Unknown (digital)
- Flash: High CRI LED  Image stabilization: yes, primary and telefoto
- RAW support: yes
- Lens cap: sapphire glass
- Object detection: yes, food, faces
- Formats: JPEG, RAW
According to rumors, the 108 MP lens can shoot 8K at 30 fps. Yes, you read that right. Those video & # 39; s look fantastic on the Q900 8K TV from Samsung, one of the few "affordable" 8K TVs on the market. We also know that the Snapdragon 865 is suitable for 8K recording, so we are now reasonably certain that 8K video recording will become a thing in 2020.
Slow motion (up to 240 fps at 1080p) and super slow motion video (up to 960 fps at 720p) must both return. Photos taken during recording may get a boost in megapixels thanks to all the details captured by the primary camera. We also expect HDR10 + video recording to yield a return.
- Resolution: 720p, 1080p, 4K and (maybe) 8K
- Maximum frame rate: 720p at 30 fps, 1080p at 60 fps, 4K at 60 fps, 8K at 30 fps
- Slow motion: 720p at 960 fps, 1080p at 240 fps
- Time-lapse: yes, 1080p
- Photos: yes, higher than 9.1 MP photo & # 39 ; s during 4K recording
- Zoom: yes, see above
- Flash access: yes, see above
- Image stabilization: yes, VDIS (digital image stabilization video))
- Object detection: Unknown
- Autofocus: Unknown
- Audio: stereo
- Formats: H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC)
Audio  Let's go straight to what you care about – the headphone jack is more than likely gone. Usually OEM & # 39; s do not return it after removal, especially in flagship series. With the Galaxy Note 10 series that says bon voyage to the port, your only option as a Samsung fan is to buy a phone from the S10 series.
We also do not believe that Samsung is the dongle in the box. They did not opt for the Galaxy Note 10 series, instead opting for USB-C AKG earbuds. You can purchase one at Amazon for $ 14.99 or upgrade to a third-party option, such as the Soditer headphone adapter ($ 26.99 on Amazon) that allows you to output 32-bit / 384 kHz audio files.
- 3.5 mm headphone jack: no
- Stereo speakers: yes, top firing and bottom-firing
- Mics: 3
- Max speaker volume: Unknown  Media formats
We have not yet heard any changes in the support of media formats, so we assume that it will be the same as its predecessor.
- Audio: MP3, M4A, 3GA, AAC, OGG, OGA, WAV, WMA, AMR, AWB, FLAC, MID, MIDI, XMF, MXMF, IMY, RTTTL, RTX, OTA, APE, DSF, DFF
- Video: MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM
We do not currently know whether Samsung is making changes to sensors . We are convinced that all sensors of the Galaxy S10e will return, with the exception of the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is being replaced by an in-display scanner.
- Sensors: Accelerometer, RGB Ambient Light Sensor, Barometer, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, Hall Sensor, Proximity Sensor
The Galaxy Note 10+ was the first Samsung device to be released in the US with support for dual frequency, so we fully expect that this feature will replace all three S11 series phones.
- GPS: yes, L1 + L5
- aGPS: yes
- Glonass: yes, L1
- BeiDou: yes, B1
- Galileo: yes, E1 + E5a
- QZSS: no
Wi-Fi 6 must be available again on the Galaxy S20. We also expect Bluetooth 5 (although 5.1 is a possibility). It may include e-SIM support, but we have not heard about this change.
- Wi-Fi: 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac / ax
- Bluetooth: NFC: yes
- Mobile: nano- SIM
- Port: USB Type-C
For cellular bands, Qualcomm forces OEMs to purchase the separate 5G modem with every purchase of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Since there is no reason to to assume that it will not use this SoC, expect 5G support on the S20.
- GSM: 850/1900
- UMTS: 850/1700/1900
- CDMA: BC0, BC10
- LTE bands: 2/4/5/7/12/13/14/25/26 / 30/38/41/48/66/71
- 5G Non-self-employed (NSA), Sub6 / mmWave
There is a rumor that Samsung is adopting safe face recognition using a ToF sensor, but, if true, probably would not be on its way to S20. Instead, we cover our bets on upgrading the fingerprint reader to an in-display reader, just like the other phones in the series.
- Fingerprint scanner: yes, in-display (ultrasonic)
- Face scanner: no
- Iris scanner: no
- Manual authentication: password, pin code, pattern , wipe
We expect that Samsung will consist of the 25 W Super Fast Charging adapter and not the 45 W charger. They usually contain AKG earbuds, this time around the USB-C variant.
