Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Features

With just over a week left before the official launch

of the Samsung Galaxy S20, we pretty much know
everything there is to know.

What's up, guys?
and we're going to break down
all of the leaks and rumors, 
so you know exactly what to expect.

There's also going to be some bonus facts towards the end
of this video, so stick around for that.

So first up, naming.
Yes, the new Samsung Galaxy S series is going to be referred to as the S20 series, not the S11s.
We're in the year 2020.

It looks like Samsung is going in line with that,
and also, because we do have quite significant updates
compared to last year.
This is all but confirmed.

We've already seen the S20 branding
on some leaked renders, as well as a bootup screen
on an S20+ device.

Now, this year, like we had last year,
we are going to have three Samsung Galaxy S20 devices,
the S20, the S20+, as well as the S20 Ultra.

Now, the S20 and the S20+ are going to come in 4G or 5G versions, but it looks like according to rumors
the S20 Ultra is just going to be available
in a 5G version.

Now, let's talk about displays, so firstly,
the sizes, the S20 is going to be the smallest
with a 6.2-inch display.

The S20+ with a 6.7-inch display, and 
the S20 Ultra with a massive 6.9-inch display.
We're almost getting into tablet size category here, but of course, the bezels are going to be very, very small, smaller than what we've had in previous years.

This is going to give us a 20 by nine aspect ratio, which is also slightly longer compared to
what we had last year.

Now, all three displays are going to be following Samsung's Infinity O design, so we're going to have a punch out
for the front-facing camera, and this means that
my wallpaper from the Note 10 should still work on all of these devices, which I'm very excited about.

Okay, so besides that, all of these displays
are going to be Dynamic AMOLED displays
with quad HD plus resolution, so they're going to be sharp, vibrant, some of the best displays in the market,  and this year, they are all going to be supporting 120 Hertz refresh rates.

This is something that Samsung didn't include last year,
so very excited to have that smooth refresh rate on the new S20s, however, there is a catch.

From all the leaks and rumors that we've seen
right now it seems like when you do go onto
120 Hertz, you are going to be limited to full HD plus,
not quad HD plus, so details are not going to be as sharp.

Now, I don't think this is going to be a huge deal
for a lot of people, and I'm not sure why Samsung has done this.

Maybe it's to save in battery life,
maybe it's the technical limitations of having 120 Hertz.
Remember one plus devices last year only had
up to 90 Hertz with that quad HD plus resolution, so maybe when we get into 120 Hertz this year,
anyway, you can only go for a full HD plus resolution,
but nevertheless, I'm super excited about these
smooth, smooth displays.
All right, now, let's talk about the builds.

Some of you may be pleased to know that although
the devices are going to have curved displays,
they're not going to be as curved as what we've had in previous years.

The recent trend seems to be waterfall displays,
which are very, very curved towards the edges,
but it looks like Samsung is actually going away from that,
and going for something that's still curved,
but not as curved as before.
We're still going to have a metal and glass sandwich,
however, for the S20 and S20+, the frame is going to be
aluminum, and for the S20 Ultra, we are going to have
a stainless steel frame, being the more premium device.

All of the devices will be IP68 water and dust resistant,
but we do have a major improvement, and that's that
you're going to be able to submerge these in water
up to five meters, which is a big improvement
compared to the around 1.5 meters that we've had in previous years.

Now, let's talk about the cameras, and this is where things
get very, very exciting, so firstly, the camera design is very different from what we've had previously.

This is going to be on the left-handed side,
and it's going to be a rectangular camera module.

Now, for the cameras themselves, the S20
and the S20+ have very similar camera setups,
so we've got three main cameras,
and the primary camera is going to be 12 megapixels.

Now, this is going to have a larger sensor size
compared to what we've had in previous years,
so this is going to be a really good improvement,
and then, we're going to have an ultrawide camera,
also at 12 megapixels.

This seems to be similar to what we've had
in previous years, and finally, we're going to have a 64 megapixel telephoto camera, which is going to give you
up to three times optical zoom, and up to 30 times
digital zoom, so that's an improvement on the two times that we've had in previous years.
The S20+ is also going to have a time-of-flight sensor.

This is something that we're not going to have
on the regular S20.
Time-of-flight sensors help with depth information,
so this should give you better portraits on the S20+, but the biggest improvements come on the S20 Ultra, and that's because the primary camera is a 108 megapixel camera.

This is using Samsung's new sensor,
and that amount of resolution is going to be absolutely insane.

There's also an improvement for the telephoto camera.
This is going to be using periscope zoom technology,
48 megapixels, with up to 10 times optical zoom,
and up to 100 times digital zoom, so this is double
of the periscope zoom that we saw introduced by Huawei last year with the P30 Pro.

It's going to let you get in super, super close.
I cannot wait to test these cameras out.

Of course, we're going to be doing lots style
camera comparisons and if you do want to see those first, then be sure to subscribe, and hit that bell icon
so you don't miss that coverage.
The S20 Ultra, of course, is also going to have
the 12 megapixel ultrawide camera, as well as the time-of-flight sensor, and on the side of video, as well, we've got some major improvements.

We've got 8K, and up to 30 frames per second
across all these devices,
which is going to be absolutely insane.

Cannot wait to test this out, as well as the pro video mode.

So this is going to be reintroduced, and it's going to give you
manual controls over video.

Now, for the front-facing camera, the S20 and S20+, 10 megapixels, a similar sensor to what we had last year
on the S10s, as well as the Note 10.
The S20 Ultra, once again, going bigger and better
with a 40 megapixel front-facing camera.

We're going to have 4K, 60 frames per second
across all of these, all the front-facing cameras.

This is an improvement on the 4K 30 frames per second
that we had last year.

All right, now, let's talk a little bit about the internals.

These devices are going to be powered by either the
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip sets,
or Samsung's Exynos 990, so it looks like once again
this year, we might still have some inconsistency
between the performance of the devices.

I'm going to try to get a hold of both variants,
so then, I can give you some proper opinions
in my reviews, as always, but regardless,
I'm confident that these are going to be some of the
fastest devices out there.

For RAM, we've got 12 gigabytes as a base for all of these,
but the S20 Ultra, once again, going larger than life,
and it's going to have a variant
with up to 16 gigabytes of RAM.
For storage, it looks like the S20 and S20+ are going to come
with a base of 128 gigabytes,
with an option of 256 gigabytes available.

The S20 Ultra, once again, 128 gigabyte space,
but up to 512 gigabytes.
All of these are going to have UFS 3.0 storage,
they're going to be super fast, as well as micro SD card
support, so that is quite interesting that all of these
are rumored to have the micro SD card support,
and that may mean that you're going to be able to
get a maximum of 1.5 terabytes of storage
on the S20 Ultra, which is absolutely insane.

Now, for audio, unfortunately, from all the leaks,
rumors, and renders, it looks like Samsung
is saying goodbye to the 3.5 MM jacks, so on the S series,
the S10s last year were the last ones to support this.

This is now time to say goodbye, however, we are going to
have USB-C earphones, tuned by AKG, out of the box on all of these devices, as well as, there are speakers tuned by AKG.

Now, Samsung is also going to be announcing
the Galaxy Buds+, so this is the second version
of their Galaxy Buds,
which I've really been a big fan of, however,
it looks like these are not going to have
active noise cancellation, unfortunately,
but they will have improved mics, as well as
improved battery life, and if you do pre-order
the S20 Ultra, at least, it looks like Samsung should
be including the Galaxy Buds+ out of the box.

Now, for the fingerprint scanner, it looks like
Samsung is still sticking to the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner that we had last year,
and they're not going to be going for Qualcomm's
3D Sonic Max, which I was definitely hoping for.

This gives you a much larger area, and it also gives you two finger support for extra security, however,
unfortunately, this is not going to be coming
to the S20 series.

Maybe it will be coming to the Note 20 series.
Now, for the batteries, the good news is that
all of these devices are going to be packing some big,
big batteries, the S20 coming in with 4,000 MAH, 4,500 for the S20+, and the S20 Ultra coming in
with a massive 5,000 MAH.
All of these are going to support fast charging,
25 watts out of the box, and there may be a 45-watt charger
available that you'd have to buy separately.

All devices are going to support fast wireless charging,
as well as reverse wireless charging, where you're going to be able to charge other devices like the Galaxy Buds+
on the S20s.

Right, so when are we officially going to hear
about the S20s?
Well, the Unpacked date is set for the 11th of Feb,
and I am going to be doing lots of coverage, hands on,
from there, so once again, make sure you have
subscribed, and hit that bell icon so you don't
miss any of that coverage, and for pricing,
still a bit of a question mark, but we're looking at
between $900 to $1,000 for the S20,

between $1,000 to $1,100 for the S20+,
and for the S20 Ultra, around $1,200 to $1,300.
Now, these will, of course, vary depending on your region,
and the 5G variants will be more expensive
to the base, 4G variants of the S20 and S20+,
and for the release date, it looks like
around the 6th of March, so quite a big gap
between Unpacked and the official release of the S20s.

All right, so that is pretty much everything
that we know about the S20s, but don't go anywhere yet.
As mentioned towards the beginning of this video,
there are some bonus leaks and rumors,
and these are around the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.

This is Samsung's second foldable device,

and it's more of a clamshell design,
compared to the tablet phone factor that we had
on the Galaxy Fold, and we have lots of leaks,
specs for this, too, so it looks like we're going to have
a 6.7-inch, full HD plus AMOLED foldable display,
and this is going to be on the Infinity O design
once again, with the punchout for the front-facing camera.
It's going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+
chip set, that's the previous chip set
from Qualcomm with eight gigabytes of RAM,
up to 256 gigabytes of UFS, 3.0 storage,
with micro SD card support, a 10 megapixel
front-facing camera for the punchout,
as well as dual 12 megapixel rear-facing cameras.

One of these is going to be a primary wide camera,
as well as an ultrawide camera,
a small front display, which is going to show you things like the time and your notifications,
a 3,300 MAH battery with support for wireless charging,
as well as wireless reverse charging, and that's roughly what we know about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip,
rumored to come in at around $1,400, which will be
undercutting the Motorola Razr, which is also
a similar clamshell design, but this seems to have
much, much better specs, so this is something that
I am definitely also excited to check out.

This is also going to be announced at the Unpacked event
on the 11th of February.

So what do you guys think of the new S20s,
and the Z Flip, based on all of these leaks and rumors?

Are you excited?
Definitely let me know in the comments below.
I'm very, very excited.

This is going to be the first big launch of the year,
and it's going to start off a very, very interesting year
in the smartphone space.

I hope you enjoyed this video, and found it useful.

If you did, then do hit that thumbs up for me,
and if you haven't already, I know I keep saying it,

all of the hands on coverage that's going to be coming
with these devices.

 see you next time.
