Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20+
The Samsung S20 and the S20+ are the core offering from Samsung this year and these have improved a lot from the last year’s Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ in almost every aspect. The key highlight of the S20 and S20+ lies with the device being powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset that supports 5G and is a beast in performance.
The display is another aspect where the S20 series has improved, the S20 features a 6.2-inches display while the S20+ features a 6.7 inches display. Both these displays are Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O Displays and feature a whopping 120Hz refresh rate which is a nice bonus.
The camera array on the S20 and S20+ has also been upgraded. There’s a 12MP primary camera which is paired with a 64MP telephoto lens that produces 3x optical zoom. There’s also a 12MP ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view. The 3x optical zoom with the 64MP telephoto lens is a nice addition and it would be fun to use it, and it does not stop here, using Samsung’s inbuilt software tricks you can even produce up to 30x digital zoom. Also, on the S20+ there is an additional ToF sensor as well apart from all the sensors as featured on the S20.
