The new releases from Samsung are a great leap from the S10 released back in February last year. With 5G becoming a lot more appealing for the public the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra will be the first 5G phone for a lot of people.
Samsung have recently announced the arrival of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Ultra in their Galaxy unpacked event earlier on this week. The first obvious change is that Samsung have amended their naming scheme, moving away from the obvious “Samsung Galaxy S11” and going for the “Samsung Galaxy S20”, to bring the model number in line with the year of release. A shrewd and logical move! The Galaxy S20 is the cheapest handset from Samsung in the new range, and although it's not the most affordable phone that has ever been launched, it does bring compelling improvements to the camera, battery and offers 5G by default in many locations.
With a sizable screen of 6.2 inches the S20 offers an impressively fast refresh rate partnered by a new triple-lens camera which shows a lot of potential. The handset is one of the first devices to shoot in 8K video, and with Samsung claiming that night-time photos will be clearer in what they say will be the biggest improvement to a phone camera since the Samsung Galaxy S7 back in 2016 – we are very hopeful.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is Samsung’s largest Android phone and one of their boldest releases yet. The most advanced 5G phone with a glorious 6.9-inch display also houses the best camera from the company to date! The Quad-lens rear camera on the Ultra is incredibly impressive and offers unbelievable zoom levels and quality low-lighting images. The 5G antenna on the handset also enables the device to obtain higher peak speeds than most alternative options that are currently on the market.
The Galaxy Ultra is noticeably taller than then standard S20 however it is not wider. With a super AMOLED display the device is incredibly big, bright and offers a very high resolution of 3200 X 1440 pixels.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is made of glass and aluminium and comes in just four colours: Cloud Pink, Cloud Blue, Cosmic Gray and Cosmic Black. There is still a slight curve on the edges of the screens, but it’s much less pronounced this time, similar to Apple’s approach with the iPhone X and iPhone XS, which should mean it will handle a lot easier.
It is very clear to us here at 4Gadgets that Samsung have created the S20 and S20 Ultra to be an outright powerhouse and it does appear it is living up to its great reveal.
