Samsung Galaxy S20 Design
Samsung flagships come with curved screen edges but in this Galaxy S20, the radius of the curve goes more to the point that people may not even notice. If you dislike curved edges, this is something for a big relief. The back has three cameras, but unlike the S20 Ultra, there is no large camera bump.
Galaxy S20 display is a massive home front. This device is 6.2 inches large at the display. S10 had 6.1 last year. However, the resolution is strong, as the phone maintains 3040 x 1440 pixels. This a Dynamic AMOLED touchscreen display that has a 120Hz refresh rate. The PPI is 563, followed by QHD+.
The chipset found in the Samsung Galaxy S20 is special, working at a great speed of 7nm. The processor is Samsung Exynos 990. This is assisted with the CPU which is 2x 2.7 GHz Exynos M5 Mongoose, 2x 2.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A76, and 4x 2.0 GHz ARM Cortex-A55. Furthermore, the GPU is ARM Mali-G77 MP11, Cores: 11.
The smartphone has good storage that means it isn’t standing with ordinary smartphones. Storage is very simple but powerful, and this is also one memorable area for the phone. The RAM is 8 GB, while the internal storage is 128 GB. Meanwhile, the phone has another boost on the external.
Powering the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G is a 4000 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery that has both wireless and fast charging features. The wireless charging comes at Qi/PMA wireless charging – 15 W, wireless reverse charging – 9 W, and fast wireless charging 2.0.
Speaker and Call Quality
The device is very remarkable in this aspect since it comes with a loudspeaker, earpiece, stereo speakers, etc. Most noticeable for the phone is the 384 kHz / 32-bit, AKG audio, and Dolby Atmos, the quality sound that moves around in three-dimensional space.
Software Features & Sensors
For sure, Samsung Galaxy S20 is Android 10.0 empowered on One UI 2.0. Furthermore, the sensors are fingerprint, hall, geomagnetic, barometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity, light and compass. The fingerprint sensor comes as an in-display ultrasonic technology.

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G Price
This phone has an official price at the ready. Go online and get a pre-order if you want because that is available right now. It sells for $999 and could be up to N364,666 in Nigeria. Put into consideration fluctuating exchange rates.
Samsung Galaxy S20 is a leap ahead of the Galaxy S10. In the camera department, it gets a good upgrade. The display is superb and it has something to show as far as the best standards are concerned in 2020. However, it is the lowest in the ranks of the S20 series and the cheapest too, because Samsung wants more people to have access to 5G. But it is powerful.
If you’re looking for new tech, this is the phone for you. If you’re looking for more camera power, get the S20 Ultra. Finally, as I have seen, the Galaxy S20 is visually impressive and fluid tech.
