The steady stream of Galaxy S20+ leaks continues today with a hands-on video of Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
The new video showing the Samsung Galaxy S20+ is brief, but it gives us another clear look at the upcoming phone and helps give us a better sense of scale. In the clip shared by XDA-Developers, we see the front of the phone with the display lit up, showing the slim bezels and hole-punch, as well as the back and its rectangular camera bump. The sides of the device are shown, too.
Today’s report confirms that the Galaxy S20+ display has a resolution of 3200×1440 with a 20:9 aspect ratio. There’s no confirmation of its size, but rumors say it could be a 6.7-inch panel. There’s an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner built into the screen.
It’s also been confirmed that Samsung is equipping the Galaxy S20+ with a 120Hz display refresh rate, making it the first Galaxy phone to offer a refresh rate higher than 60Hz. You’ll be able to change between 60Hz for better battery life and 120Hz for smoother animations and scrolling.
Unfortunately, the rumors that 120Hz is only available at FHD+ resolution are true.
Another tidbit of bad news confirmed by today’s leak is that the Galaxy S20+ will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Galaxy S10 series included this feature but Samsung dropped it on the Galaxy Note 10, and now the Galaxy S20+ is losing it, too. The box does include AKG-made USB-C earbuds.
When it comes to raw specs, this Galaxy S20+ has 12GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in storage, and a rated battery capacity of 4500mAh (4370mAh typical). Support for 25W fast charging is in there, too.
Finally, you can see an image of the Galaxy S10+ next to the Galaxy S20+ below. The Galaxy S10+ features a 6.4-inch display and measures 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8mm.
So far it’s looking like the Galaxy S20+ will have some nice upgrades as well as some changes that are sure to disappoint some people. The faster refresh rate is a big new addition for the Galaxy S lineup and both the additional RAM, bigger battery, and camera array are welcome improvements, too. The removal of the headphone jack is sure to turn some folks off, though, especially since Samsung was one of the last major smartphone makers to include it.
What do you think of the Galaxy S20+?
