At long last, the Galaxy S20 series has been finally unveiled. Besides the affordable vanilla Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus models, Samsung is spicing up its 2020 flagship line with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is obviously the cream of the crop. A device that should go head to head with Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max, which is an interesting matchup considering this is the first time Samsung made an even more premium model in the S series.
It shares some of the similar specs with the Galaxy S20 Plus. Like the new Exynos 990 processor, 5G connectivity in select markets, and a fast 120Hz refresh rate Dynamic AMOLED screen. But this time, it has a bigger 6.9-inch QHD+ screen.
The selfie camera on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra was also upgraded significantly to 40-megapixel. But probably its most amazing feature is the Super Resolution Zoom that can magnify by up to 100x. We also have the primary camera that has a whopping 108-megapixel sensor.
Since it has a bigger body, the company was able to cram a bigger 5,000mAh battery on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. As a cherry on the top, the Korean company finally stepped up in the charging game by introducing a 45W fast charging solution.
The RAM options was also upgraded. It now starts at 12GB, with a whopping 16GB option — a first of its kind. Samsung is also offering more storage options for the Ultra model. You can get it with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of built-in memory.
