While it will be introduced on February 11th, we already know a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S20, thanks to a runaway model that allows us to know its characteristics in advance.
With less than a month to go before its presentation, we already know almost everything about Samsung’s future flagship thanks to numerous leaks in recent days. Indeed, the XDA Developers website seems to have gotten its hands on a Galaxy S20+ 5G model, and is unveiling more and more of the South Korean firm’s next flagship model every day. While these rumours are still to be taken with care, they are very reliable as they come from a source known for its seriousness. However, there is a caveat, as the model that XDA Developers has developed may only be a prototype of the smartphone, and may not necessarily reflect the final look of the product. We’re taking stock of all the leaks around Galaxy S20!
As rumours were already suggesting in December, Samsung’s future flagship should indeed be called “Galaxy S20” and not “Galaxy S11”. If the range should consist of three smartphones, namely a Galaxy S20, a Galaxy S20+ and a Galaxy S20 Ultra, we are for the moment certain that the Galaxy S20+ is the model that leaked to the XDA Developers site.

This confirms the overall design of the smartphone, including its punch centered at the top of the screen, but also its photo block composed of four sensors at the rear. The site, obviously in possession of the smartphone, has also analyzed its various sensors. This would include a 12 megapixel Sony IMX 555 main sensor, a 64 megapixel Samsung ISOCell S5KGW2 sensor, and a third Samsung ISOCell S5K2LA sensor. The last sensor remains unknown, although it is likely to be a ToF sensor. This leak suggests that the 108-megapixel sensor that has been a recurring theme in rumours may well be reserved for Samsung’s ultra-high-end Galaxy S20 Ultra. To finish on the photo/video part, note that XDA Developers has also revealed that the Galaxy S20+ will be able to shoot in 8K, at 7680 x 4320 pixels, and this in 30 frames per second.

As far as the display is concerned, the Galaxy S20+ should offer a brand new look, a bit longer than its predecessor. The screen aspect ratio should therefore change to 20:9 with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels. Another new feature is the presence of a 120 Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy S20’s display is also expected to once again feature the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, which was introduced last year on the S10 and may be enhanced this year with Qualcomm’s Sonic Max solution.

Finally, XDA Developers specifies that the Galaxy S20+ should have no jack plug, and that the leaky model that made all these revelations was equipped with 11GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 4500 mAh battery. We still have to wait until February 11th and the official presentation of the smartphone to confirm or not all these features.
