samsung galaxy s20

 

Every year we see better technology coming up in the mobile industry and so is the number of Android phones is growing. Some are good, some are not so good. Some devices are really exciting like foldable Galaxy Z flip, whereas others are slightly boring. Among all of these handsets coming every year, one device that has been successfully impressed many with lots of exciting features and innovative designs is Samsung's Galaxy S series.


Samsung Galaxy S10 was undoubtedly the best-selling smartphone for the company last year. And this year, Samsung decided to launch a trio of phones with the Galaxy S20, S20, and S20 ultra. These are very technically impressive gadgets but comes with a high price tag, not something that everyone can afford. You can argue about the price, but there is no denying that they get a lot of attention compared to the budget-friendly Chinese rival's devices.


Although there are three models of the Galaxy S20, their core is very similar. All three phones have 120Hz display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor, expandable storage, water resistance, and offers wireless charging. Out of three models, the Galaxy S20 is the cheapest one but it doesn't have support for mmWave 5G network and has the smallest battery.


All three models have the same Android 10 with One UI 2.0 operating system and use the dame processing chip. They have the same memory 12GB whereas the Galaxy S20 also comes with 16GB memory. The storage is limited to 128GB for Galaxy S20 whereas other variants are getting 128GB and 512GB models. The storage can be expanded to 1TB.


The primary rear camera for Galaxy S20 and S20+ are 12MP whereas for Galaxy S20 ultra it goes up to 108MP with f/1.8. The second rear camera is 64MP telephoto lens and 48MP for Galaxy S20 ultra. The third camera is 12MP for all models and only Galaxy S20 ultra has the fourth camera. The front camera is 10MP for Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and 40MP for Galaxy S20 ultra. The batteries are 4,000mAh, 4500mAh, and 5000mAh for Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 ultra respectively.


The Galaxy S20 series has a much higher refresh rate as compared to the previous phones. The 120Hz display on the S20 makes everything looks so flawless and faster compared to the traditional 60Hz displays. Samsung has offered four colors this time, including cloud blue, cloud pink, cosmic grey, and cosmic black.

Usually, new Android flagship smartphones prefer not to opt for the latest processing chip which is going to change for Pixel 5. The latest and most powerful processor by Qualcomm this year is Snapdragon 865. Samsung has installed the latest processing chip in its Galaxy S20 range for the U.S version and some Chinese manufacturers choose the do the same. But if rumors are to be believed, Google is going to use an older chip for its mid-range smartphone.


The Snapdragon 865 is certainly the fastest processor right now, but the chip is expensive and it also lacks an onboard modem. Qualcomm insists it is used in concert with the X55 modem to provide 5G connectivity. That means a more complicated internal design, which requires more physical space than an SoC that is integrated.


While sub-6 support comes as standard, the 5G network support is optional. These are the two leading 5G technologies right now. Despite having mmWave support for the plus and ultra models, Samsung decided to go without mmWave in the standard Galaxy S20. Google is using the next fastest chip - the Snapdragon 765G in Pixel 5. It is not fast as the latest chip but it does boast an integrated 5G modem. It's Qualcomm's first Soc with an integrated 5G modem that also supports sub-6 and mmWave. That means it requires far less space inside the device and has built-in support for 5G network connectivity. With the extra space left on the phone, Google may be able to fit a bigger battery in there or might tweak the sensor array to make the motion sensor more useful.


As the chip isn't expensive as the latest processor - you don't have to pay anything extra in the name of the small addition of speed. With the optimized software and UI, there isn't much need for the extra speed. Google has never been a hardware company and relies mostly on software to do its tricks. The pixel 3a is the perfect example of its capabilities that might be a beat or two slower than the flagship smartphones but can do clever things that other phones can't.
