In the past few weeks, we have seen copious amounts of Samsung Galaxy S20 leaks surfacing on the internet, confirming a number of rumors.
Today, XDA Developer’s Max Weinbach came up with another massive leak, i.e., a hands-on video showing hardware of the S20+ from all angles. Even though the smartphone in the video is the S20+, it gives us enough idea of what the toned-down vanilla S20 and the maxed-out S20 ultra will have in store for us.
Key Galaxy S20+ Specs and Features
Technically, nothing’s etched in stone until Samsung officially confirms it on February 11. But in addition to the aforementioned screen size and camera details, many other Galaxy S20+ features are unofficially confirmed by these new leaks.
We’re talking, for instance, about a resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels for that massive 6.7-inch display, which also comes with a 120Hz refresh rate… that only supports a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. In other words, the device will automatically downgrade its refresh rate to 60-hertz if you choose to use that gorgeous display at the highest available resolution.
That’s bound to annoy some folks, especially considering the Galaxy S20 Plus reportedly packs a gargantuan 4,500mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging technology. Of course, the combination of a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 865 processor (replaced by an Exynos 990 in “international” markets) and 5G speeds could take a toll on battery life, so perhaps it’s wise to impose certain energy-saving limitations.
You’ll also get a whopping 12 gigs of blazing-fast LPDDR5 RAM paired with up to 512 gigs of internal storage space, as well as a microSD card slot that went missing from the Galaxy Note 10.
Speaking of missing features, you shouldn’t be shocked to hear the S20+ will come without a headphone jack, while its under-display fingerprint sensor uses ultrasonic technology, although it remains unclear if we’re dealing with an older or newer model supplied by Qualcomm. If it’s the latter, the speed, accuracy, and more importantly, the security of the biometric recognition process should be greatly improved from what the S10 and Note 10 series are offering.
