Samsung’s Galaxy S20 lineup has had a myriad of leaks as of late, and mostly have been aesthetics and tiny bits of details about the devices. But now a new leak from XDA Developers have confirmed a lot details about the flagship devices. Some of the more notable bits of info are the 120Hz display, no headphone jack, and details about the cameras among other things.
The leak tells us about the S20+, which features a 3200 X 1440 pixel display, with a 20:9 aspect ratio and has a centered punchhole display like last year’s Note 10. Another detail that’s now confirmed is the fact that the S20+ at least, will have 120Hz refresh rate for smoother animations and other functions on screen. But as of now, you’ll only be able to use it with FHD+ resolution. Meaning the higher-resosultion, WQHD+ setting will only work at 60Hz.
XDA also mentioned information about the fingerprint sensor tech inbuilt in the S20 series. Apparently, the S20 still uses an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, which is similar to the ones found on the S10. This makes it stand out as other companies are using optical sensors. Mainly because S10’s ultrasonic sensor was reported to be slow, and had issues when a screen protector was applied. Qualcomm had released a new version, the second-generation 3D Sonic Max sensor, but no details on whether the S20+ is using the new updated version, or the same first-gen model like the S10.
Battery & RAM
XDA also confirmed some other internals about the S20+, such as having 25W fast charging, 12GB of RAM, and a 4500mAh battery. But they also confirmed that the S20 series will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Which sucks, but we could’ve seen it coming a mile away.
As far as we can tell, Samsung are expected to launch three variants of the S20: The S20, S20+ and a new version, the high end S20 Ultra. There’s been no confirmation on the screen sizes as of yet, but rumours claim that the S20 will feature a 6.2″ display, S20+ a 6.7″ display, and S20 Ultra a 6.9″ display. All variants are also expected to feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, so you’re not missing out on much if you decided to get the (probably) cheaper S20 option. But these details mentioned here, are not confirmed. The details above have been the ones tested by XDA’s source.
But all in all, it seems we’re in for quite a show on February 11th, when Samsung hosts their event and give us more details, prices, and just get the devices out there on sale already. There’s been so many leaks, at this point, we just haven’t held the phone yet.
