The entire Galaxy S20 lineup was announced on the 11th of February 2020 with every devices catering for different needs. The Galaxy S20 5G is very interesting as it’s the scaled-up version of the S20 which is still on the starting phase of the entire Galaxy S20 Series.

But the Galaxy S20 5G sports a nice 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED display and a hole-punch camera at the center top of the device which can be concealed using the software just in case you’re a notch hole-punch hater. But that’s not a big deal from my point of view.

The Camera module is now redesigned which rather than the horizontal designing on the Galaxy S10 Series, its now a single rectangular bump at the top back corner of the device with the 12MP primary sensor along with other two cameras which includes a second 64 MP, f/2.0, (telephoto), PDAF, OIS, 3x hybrid optical zoom and then another 12 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), AF, Super Steady video . The device is capable of recording a 4320p@30fps, 2160p@30/60fps, 1080p@30/60/240fps, HDR10+, dual-video rec., stereo sound rec., gyro-EIS & OIS and has features such as LED flash, auto-HDR, panorama nearing the performance of the Galaxy S20+ models.

As for the front facing camera, it’s a bigger 10MP sensor which can also record a 2160p@30/60fps, 1080p@30fps as well as featuring Dual video call, Auto-HDR. The front facing selfie camera is housed in a hole-punch right at the top-center of the display just the same as the other Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra or the older S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite.

Another big bump up of the Galaxy S20 5G is the hardware specification. It features a 12GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage which is very massive but you can increase that with an external memory card. Powering the entire device up is a Snapdragon SM8250 865 (7 nm+) – for the USA variant while others around the world will use the Exynos 990 (7 nm+). Basically, there is no difference between the Galaxy S20 and the S20 5G just the Network module and RAM bump-up which gives the device more energy to perform more tasks.

Battery is a huge 4000mAh Li-Po battery which is capable of many things though it’s a scaled down battery of the S20+ which is a 4500mAh Li-Po battery. Charging it takes few moments as Samsung bump up the charging port to a 3.2, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector. It’s capable of taking 15W of wireless charging and reverse wireless charging of 9W while the fast charging capability using the USB-wired charging is 25W while its USB Power Delivery is 3.0.

Overall, this is a quite pricey smartphone costing in the realms of $999 being the 5G model meaning the normal base model should cost less than this.
