Samsung on the 11th of February 2020 released the Galaxy S20 Plus 5G along with the others like the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus, Galaxy S20 Ultra and then the Galaxy Z Flip which all have high end features and comes with a big price stamp.
But the Galaxy S20+ Plus has a nice 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display and a hole-punch camera at the center top of the device.
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 triple setup which includes a second 64 MP, f/2.0, (telephoto), PDAF, OIS, 3x hybrid optical zoom camera and then another 12 MP, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide), AF, Super Steady video and lastly a 0.3 MP, TOF 3D, (depth). 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.
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 Plus 5G is the hardware specification. It has features a 12GB RAM and 512 GB internal storage which is very massive. 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+).
Battery is a huge 4500mAh Li-Po battery which is capable of many things. 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.
Overall, this expensive smartphone costs a fortune but it’s worth the price because of the huge scaling which Samsung did to improve the device’s specifications.
