Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the highest tier Galaxy S20 smartphone which will begin on February 11th beside the Galaxy S20 and Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus. Unique features regarding certain handsets have been made possible so let’s take a look at it. Hands-on video of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ shows the handset will have 4 cameras at the end.
So the Galaxy S20 Unpacked event is right around the corner. We’re less than two weeks away from the event and if you’ve noticed the Galaxy S20 leaks and rumors have kinda slowed down in the past few days. The reason for that is, of course, we know literally everything there’s to know about the handsets.
Thankfully, though we have a few new information regarding the camera today. Some of you were asking me that how is it possible that the Galaxy S20 can record 8K videos with just 12MP camera. If you don’t know already the main camera on the S20 and S20+ is a 12MP wide-angle lens. You need at least 33MP to record 8K videos.
So what Samsung is doing is, they’re using the secondary 64MP telephoto camera to record 8K videos. Usually, smartphone companies use the telephoto camera to zoom in but Samsung is not following the trend, they’re doing something different this time. Also, Ice Universe says this 64MP camera will be only used for zooming and 8K videos.
The S20 and S20+ will have 3 times lossless zoom. This 64MP camera is not an optical zoom lens instead it just crops the image because it has a bunch of extra pixels. That doesn’t necessarily mean a bad thing, this will help take better and steady 8K videos. Ice Universe also says that the 108MP camera of the S20 Ultra takes images without any shutter delay and will also be able to turn on HDR automatically, much like the Galaxy S10 series.
No shutter delay is a good thing considering it has such a high megapixel count. Also, Max Winebach reveals some other details about the S20 handsets. He says the haptic feedback on the S20 is better than the S10 but will be similar to the Galaxy Note 10.
Samsung said a few months ago that the removal of the headphone jack helped them achieve a better haptic feedback but I guess the actual reason is that the Note 10 has a bigger vibration motor compared to the S10 or Note 9. So it seems the same Note 10’s vibration motor has been used on the S20.
And finally, the S20 family will have a pre-installed screen protector right out of the box much like the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Also, we have some more information about the Galaxy Buds Plus that will launch alongside the Galaxy S20. Previously we learned that if you pre-order the S20+ and S20 Ultra you’ll get free Galaxy Buds Plus along with it.
Of course, this offer will not be available to every country and if you want to buy these new buds separately then you’ll need to pay $150. That’s the same price the Galaxy Buds was launched last year, plus you’re getting some improvements such as double the battery life, 4 microphones instead of two and better adaptive noise isolation.
Samsung will launch this alongside the Galaxy S20 which is just right around the corner. For all the latest updates on the S20 do consider subscribing and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!
