    Galaxy S20 vs Plus vs S20 Ultra specs, camera and price comparison

    Galaxy S20 vs Plus vs S20 Ultra specs, camera and price comparison
    Going from a Galaxy S10 in 2019, directly to S20 the following year is an unprecedented move, and not only for Samsung. Apparently, the company considers its newlywed Galaxy S20 family a quantum leap to not only start the decade in 2020, but also signify a "new era" for Samsung, said its new mobile division exec. 

    That, and the fact that next year we may have Galaxy S21 or even S30 in 2021, while the iPhone would still be at 13. We kid, but naming the series S20 is a handy denomination for the new decade going forward, and a clever marketing ploy, too. 

    What was once thought to be the S11e as an S10e successor, is now the S20, the S10 heir turned out to actually be S20+, while the rumors for an S20 Ultra to replace the S10+ have materialized, too.

    If that's not complicated enough, the Ultra is the one that sports the top periscope zoom and high-res main camera that will allow for some clever up to 100x "Space Zoom" hybrid optical/digital magnification. Thus, with the naming scheme out of the way, let's review which new Galaxy S20 gets what specs so it's easier for you to pull the buy trigger.

    Samsung Galaxy S20 vs Plus vs S20 Ultra specs, colors, and display sizes

    Samsung Galaxy S20 vs S20+ vs S20 Ultra camera differences

    As you can see, the S20 Ultra is quite a bit thicker than the S20+ or the S20 even. This should serve as a hint that it is the exclusive bearer of Samsung's first periscope zoom setup that offers 5x optical, 10x hybrid, and 100x digital "Space Zoom" magnification. That crazy zoom level is achieved by a hybrid optical/digital efforts when coupled with crops and pixel-binning from the ultra high-res 108MP main sensor and the 48MP telephoto camera.

    The S20+ and S20 use the same hybrid cropping and binning to reach the advertised 30x "Space Zoom" levels, but from a 64MP telephoto camera with 3x hybrid optical zoom, so the ultimate magnification total is much smaller. In both cases, however, we wouldn't expect the largest zoom numbers to produce anything but passable results.

    The S20 and S20+, however, come with new 12MP sensors that sport huge 1.8 micron pixels, much larger than the 0.8 micron dots of the 108MP sensor reserved for the Ultra. Samsung still managed to set the Ultra apart by introducing the Nonacell technology, combining nine adjacent pixels into one to reach the whopping 2.4 micron virtual pixel size on its most expensive S-line phone to date.

    In addition, the extra thickness could be a reflection of the much larger, 5000mAh battery pack in the Ultra that sets a record for the largest one that Samsung has ever put in an S-line or even Galaxy Note phone so far.

    Samsung Galaxy S20 vs S20+ vs S20 Ultra prices and carrier availability

    Samsung just waltzed out of the stage in the Palace of Fine Arts, a huge neoclassical building in San Francisco, California, and left us drooling over its new and unprecedented Galaxy S20 family line. 

    Available on all US carriers from March 6, the phones' prices are not for the faint of heart, starting from $999 for the S20, going through the $1199 mark for the middle S20+ child, and culminating in the whopping $1399 for the S20 Ultra. Say what, you want the Ultra but will settle on the S20? Who can blame you.

    Those cameras are still wrong, why don't you fix them, S20 and S20+ not use 108mp sensor, they use 12mp sensors with 1.8μm

    They dont know it is wrong yet ... Are you Sandy from slashleaks?

    I like them, but in the same time I hate that camera island that is so protruding. I wonder how the phone will bounce when laid on the back on a table.. Why couldn't they incorporate it under the glass??

    I don't understand why do they use glass on the back of the phone, when everyone will use some kind of case to make even surface with that camera bump (so not just for protection).

    FFS, why is the smallest S20 still bigger than my S7 Edge!?? Why can't Samsung make a compact flagship??

    Because people don't buy them. The larger ones sell 2 to 1. And they do sell a compact phone, the S10e.

    They don't sell compact flagships. The larger ones are selling 2 to 1 because the smaller ones have inferior specs, so people have to go with the large.

    False. Big phones sell only because every manufacturer stopped selling smaller phones to sell big phones 4 years ago. How would people buy smaller phones if manufacturers are forcing them to buy bigger phones?

    It would have absolutely horrible battery life or missing features. All those camera take up a lot of space, so do the larger batteries. I'd imagine part of the push to bigger phones is to incorporate more cameras and other sensors.

    The iPhone 11 Pro is smaller than all S20 phones listed here.

    Or you can do what I did 2 years ago...just forget that Samsung exist. LG'S flagship will costs 600-700$ 2 months after start of the sale, as will Huawei's P40, and there is always Oneplus,Xiaomi, Oppo....

    Naaaaah....it's not crazy, just look at what Sony does...release phone 4-5 months after announcing it.

    February - june ... The excuse is they start production after MWC to avoid any leak.

    I'm so disappointed about the 20:9 ratio. Do our phones really need to get longer??? It's already difficult to comfortably reach the top of the display currently.

    That is why people should not use only one hand. Thumb can get injured this way.

    Ikr, it's not like people are asking for this, I mean is it possible they will go back to lesser aspect ratios in the future, there's no way I'm buying a 20:9 phone, maybe they'll keep going till they reach 32:9. I hate this stupid trend

    31. User123456789 unregistered

    It will stop at 21:9.

    crazy specs but another price increase. I wish phones get cheaper and not more expensive !!! At this rate Note 20 ultra will be 1199 or more.

    7. User123456789 unregistered

    Better components cost more.

    Posts: 471; Member since: Jul 02, 2014

    What is better components? Sd855 was best there was in 2019...why would sd865 cost more? Camera module from 2019 has lost it value, so if it was priced f.e. 100$ last year, now it costs 60, so new model can cost 100$ this year. So, no...it is not about components price, it is about Samsung's and Apple's greed.

    29. User123456789 unregistered

    Newer components cost more. New cpu/gpu, newer screen, newer cameras, newer batteries etc ....

    Not only that but the demand is dictating the price increase. Every manufacturer wants the best hardware so suppliers can easily increase their prices since they have a lot of buyers.
