Reefa posted a topic in Mobile NewsThe next Samsung smartphone on the high end is the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, if rumors stay accurate. We’ve read the lists and listed the specifications, now it’s time to get a clearer look at what Samsung’s likely got in store for February 11, 2019. This is not the most cost-efficient way to gain access to 5G connectivity, of what you can be sure. But it might just be the prettiest. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra was rendered this week by the designer named Ben Geskin. This creator previously brought us images of a whole bunch of next-gen smartphones from Samsung, Apple, and others. This particular render is based on rumors and insider tips, as well as some actual photos of the phones that’ll be released alongside the Galaxy S20 Ultra. That’d be the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+, or Galaxy S20 Plus. The phone rendering you’re looking at above largely relies on the image you see below. This was rendered by the leaker / designer Ishan Agarwal. He’s got a basic handle on the look of the final design, where Geskin puts on some extra shine. That back-facing camera will have specifications like what follows. The list you see here is quite likely accurate, given the batting average of the leakers from whens the information arrived. This set of specs makes the Ultra significantly more powerful than the other two Samsung Galaxy S20 devices in the photography department. Galaxy S20 Ultra camera specs: • 108MP main camera (wide angle lens) • 48MP telephoto lens (10x optical zoom!) • 12MP wide camera (ultra-wide-angle lens) • ToF sensor (looks like a camera, for depth-sensing, AR) If you take a peek at the collection of three S20 units in leaks from last week, you’ll find the other two (S20, S20+) almost matching, while the S20 Ultra takes the line to a higher level. The pricing of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will match that of the above-and-beyond nature of the specifications therein. If the first Galaxy S10 5G phone’s price is any indication, this Galaxy S20 Ultra will have a base cost that’s higher than any Galaxy smartphone that’s come before. There’ll definitely be cheaper ways to get 5G phones in 2020, without a doubt. We’ll know more on February 11, 2020! source
Karlston posted a topic in Mobile NewsNew Samsung Galaxy S20 leak points to a 120Hz display, but no headphone jack The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus display said to be taller, too (Image credit: TechRadar) There are almost too many Samsung Galaxy S20 to keep up with this week, with the latest news strongly hinting at a 120Hz display but no 3.5mm headphone jack. And by 'strongly hinting' we mean 'nearly definitively confirming', as someone has had time with an alleged S20 Plus phone well before the February 11 launch event. This is essentially the Samsung Galaxy S11 Plus, of course, though all of the rumors have been coalescing around the Galaxy S20 name for Samsung's new phone series. Taking that into account, this S20 news backs up a previous leak, back when we were all calling it the S11, which first mentioned a choice between 60Hz and 120Hz refresh rates as an option within the Samsung OneUI beta software. Today's S20 Plus leak for the basically confirms those options in the larger handset, according to XDA Developers contributor Max Weinbach. He has photo evidence from a source with alleged access to one of the S20 Plus handsets. In other words, this could be coming to the whole Samsung smartphone line in 2020. (Image credit: XDA Developers / Max Weinbach) This leak also suggests the S20 Plus will have a 3,200 x 1,440 WQHD+ resolution display, which are longer dimensions thanks to a 20:9 aspect ratio. But you won’t be able to get 120Hz at this max resolution – the faster refresh rate will be capped at FHD+, per the leak. By default, Samsung's top-end flagships in recent years have all had QHD+ displays, but by default resolution has been 1080p out of the box. You had to change to QHD+ in the settings menu, which did drain the battery life faster. We're not certain most people notice the pixel-packing difference on handsets of this size. So the 120Hz existing only at FHD+ may be non-factor. Today's S20 news comes shortly after OnePlus revealed it’s working on 120Hz screen tech after releasing phones with 90Hz displays in 2019, while older rumors suggested the iPhone 12 line could get 120Hz displays as well. No headphone jack for the Galaxy S20 Plus? The XDA leak included another tidbit: a hands-on video from the source. This short video shows the ‘domino’ style rear camera block, though further info supplied to XDA affirms that the headphone jack is nowhere to be found. If true, and following the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 omission of a 3.5mm port, this finally spells the end of headphone jacks for Samsung flagships. And, appropriately, this should be the end of Samsung's long sneering at Apple for ditching the headphone jack starting with the iPhone 7. Samsung started down this road by losing them in the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus six months ago. Samsung reps justified the removal by claiming it allowed a bit more (100mAh) battery and improving haptic feedback. It’s not completely gone from Samsung top-line phones in 2020: the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has a headphone jack, as we saw at CES 2020. Lastly, the XDA leak affirmed that the S20 phones would be retaining its predecessors’ in-screen ultrasonic scanners instead of swapping them out for optical scanners.

Karlston posted a topic in Mobile NewsGalaxy S20 Ultra to come with a whopping 16GB of RAM How much RAM is too much RAM? First image of article 3 image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all 3 images. After the recent leak of live pictures of Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S20, more details have started to trickle in about the upcoming device. First, a recap: the Galaxy S20 is the follow-up to last year's Galaxy S10. Samsung's naming scheme is apparently changing, and a "Galaxy S11" is not a product that will be happening. It looks like it's now going to be "Samsung Galaxy S [current year]" so this year it's the S20. The model lineup is also changing, too, and we're getting three sizes: the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the highest-end phone, the Galaxy S20 Ultra. In the US, they're all going to be 5G with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoCs, and internationally you should be able to find 4G and 5G versions with Samsung Exynos chips. Now, the new stuff: Max Weinbach, the XDA author who scored the live pictures of the Galaxy S20, has some spec info. 16GB of RAM would be a new high point for smartphones. That is an absolutely ridiculous amount of memory and would outclass many laptops out there, which typically start at 8GB of RAM. As for what you're supposed to do with all that memory, it might be useful for Samsung's DeX desktop mode, which lets you kick the phone over to a full windowed PC interface by hooking it up to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. A baseline of 12GB—the highest-end config for the Galaxy S10—would be a big increase, too. As connected Samsung leaker Ice Universe points out, this will most likely be LPDDR5, which Samsung has already put into production. The Galaxy S10 came in storage tiers of 128GB, 512GB, and 1TB, so the listed S20 tiers of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB would be a downgrade. The good news is that there's still a MicroSD slot—on the "Ultra" model, at least. A 5000mAh battery sounds like a significant leap over the 4500mAh battery in the biggest Galaxy S10, the "5G" version, but keep in mind it's going to be doing a lot of heavy lifting. In the US, it's going to have to deal with the extra power draw of the Snapdragon 865's separate 4G/5G modem, which should impact the battery more than a fully integrated solution. With speedy display panels being all the rage in 2020, the Galaxy S20 is also rumored to support a 120Hz display. More power draw from the display itself and more power draw from the CPU and GPU having to render everything at 120 frames per second should also affect battery life. And speaking of that 120Hz display, the one disappointing Galaxy S20 rumor comes from Ice Universe, who claims that the Galaxy S20 will need to reduce its screen resolution to run at 120Hz. It sounds like the two options will be a full-resolution 1440p image at the normal 60Hz or a reduced-resolution 1080p image at 120Hz. Do you want a clear image or faster scrolling? It's not clear why Samsung would do something like this. Reducing the rendering resolution doesn't have a huge impact on battery life, so are the CPU and GPU the issue? Maybe the phone is just not fast enough for a 1440p, 120Hz image. Weinbach lists a 108MP camera for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which would use pixel binning to combine nine pixels into a single pixel for better light collection, outputting a 12MP image. We're still not clear how the cameras will pan out across the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra or how the camera block designs will look. There are real-life pictures of the S20+ camera arrangement, but what about the other models? The earlier render with the weirdly disorganized camera array was for the "Galaxy S11+," aka the biggest version of the 2020 Galaxy S line. Under the new naming scheme, the biggest version of the Galaxy S isn't the S20+, it would be the S20 Ultra, which we haven't seen yet. So no one knows if the crazy camera array is really happening or not. The phone is scheduled for a launch event on February 11, but there will no doubt be more leaks between now and then.

Karlston posted a topic in Mobile NewsReal-world photos confirm Samsung’s next flagship phone is called the Galaxy S20 Because 20 is higher than 11, you see There will be no Samsung Galaxy S11. Instead, Samsung is jumping ahead to the S20. Rumors had been swirling about the branding change in recent weeks, and today XDA Developers published the first real-world shots of the Galaxy S20 Plus. The phone’s startup screen confirms the new name; maybe Samsung is naming by year now. And we also see that the front of the device has a center hole-punch cutout that’s similar to the selfie shooter from the Galaxy Note 10. Samsung has significantly toned down the curved sides of the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, with XDA’s source saying that the S20 Plus feels largely flat in hand. On the back, we get a look at Samsung’s large camera array for the S20 Plus, which is rumored to contain a regular wide lens, an ultra-wide, portrait, and a macro lens as the new, fourth option. On back is also one of the more optimistic, hopeful confidentiality stickers I’ve ever seen: it actually just flat out says “do not leak info.” So much for that. Samsung will unveil an entire line of Galaxy S20 devices at its Unpacked event on February 11th, including multiple screen sizes and some models with 5G connectivity. The company’s next foldable phone, perhaps called the Galaxy Bloom, is also expected to debut next month.
