Samsung Galaxy S20 has not yet been officially unveiled. But before next month’s formal announcement, a so-called hands-on video has appeared online. It is rumored that Samsung’s new flagship phone has a 120Hz display with an aspect ratio of 20:9, while retaining the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the screen we saw on the Galaxy S10 models last year. In addition to the Galaxy S20, Samsung allegedly has the Galaxy Buds in process as the successor to the Galaxy Buds with 12 hours of battery life. However, it is said that the new Galaxy Buds headphones come without active noise cancellation.
The practical video that suggests the design and features of the Samsung Galaxy S20 has been leaked by Max Weinbach of XDA Developers. The video highlights the design of the Samsung phone which is believed to be the successor to the Galaxy S10, but not the Galaxy S10 that would get the Galaxy S20 Ultra as the heir.
The 13-second video shows the back of the Samsung phone which has a rectangular shaped camera configuration with four sensors and an LED flash module. The phone also appears to have an Infinity-O display (the company speaks through a perforated screen panel). Overall, the design presented in the video is similar to what we saw in some recently leaked images that were claimed to be from the Galaxy S20. The phone also doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, although it is said to come bundled with AKG USB Type-C headphones that we first saw with the Galaxy Note 10 x 66,000 models.
Samsung is also reported to include a Super Fast charger in the Retail box of the Galaxy S20. Rumor has it that the phone has 25W fast charging.
In addition to the video, the developers of XDA through a new publication claim that the Samsung Galaxy S20 will come with a QHD screen resolution that will have a pixel count of 1440 x 3200 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. It is also said that the phone has the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. This is different from some previous reports that suggested an optical fingerprint sensor.
The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor of last year’s Samsung Galaxy S10 models raised some safety concerns. However, the South Korean company is likely to use some tweaks to improve security, without completely changing the technology.
“The Galaxy S20 does not illuminate the fingerprint area (apart from the regular brightness levels of the display), which essentially confirms the ultrasonic sensor,” the XDA Developers report notes.
It is also said that Samsung used a 120Hz display panel with the option to allow users to switch to the normal 60Hz refresh rate in case they don’t want a smoother viewing experience and retain some power.
Compared to the Galaxy S10, it is said that the Samsung Galaxy S20 has a higher design. An image showing height changes has also been filtered inline.
In addition, some images suggesting the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S20 have also been provided online that suggest 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, 128 GB of UFS 3.0 storage and a 4,500 mAh battery (with a typical capacity of 4,500 mAh 4.370 mAh).
The camera features of the Samsung Galaxy S20 have also been filtered. The phone will have a primary Sony IMX555 12-megapixel sensor, a Samsung ISOCELL S5KGW2 64-megapixel secondary and a Samsung ISOCELL S5K2LA tertiary sensor, XDA Developers says in a separate report. A Sony IMX374 10-megapixel image sensor is also said to be available on the front with 4K video recording support.
Some earlier rumours suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S20 would come with a 108 megapixel primary sensor. The new report, however, does not provide any clarity on that front, although the company might be using a clustering solution to provide lower-resolution output.
That said, the latest revelation mentions that the Samsung Galaxy S20 will have 8K video recording support at a frame rate of 30 fps and with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The phone would also have 4K video recording at 60fps with OIS and EIS support for front and rear cameras. In addition, there would be a zoom microphone that debuted in the Galaxy Note 10 series last year.
Other features are also included, such as a smart selfie angle, a single photo and a professional video. A disassembly of the Samsung camera app in November hinted at a view of the director that could do similar work to the Filmic Pro by allowing users to jump from one camera lens to another. The new report mentions that the advanced option appears to be missing from the Pre-production unit of the Galaxy S20.
Along with the Galaxy S20 and other Galaxy S20 models, Samsung is likely to bring the Galaxy Buds to its next Unpacked event. Initially, the new headphones were supposed to take Apple’s AirPods Pro with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) support. However, SamMobile reports that there will be no ANC in the new model.
It is also said that the Samsung Galaxy Buds include an 85 mAh battery, larger than the 58mAh package available on the original Galaxy Buds. The new battery is said to provide 12 hours of backup on a single charge. This could be almost double what Galaxy Buds offer today.
Samsung is expected to detail its developments around the Galaxy Buds while showing off the Flagships of the Galaxy S Series at its Unpacked event on February 11. In the meantime, it’s safe to expect new rumors to emerge on the Web.
