- Samsung just unveiled its three new smartphones, including the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra.
- Samsung focused on two major things in its new phones: namely, the screen with a high 120Hz refresh rate and all-new camera tech.
- All the new Galaxy S20 phones support 5G, too, but only because the new premium Android chip of 2020 from Qualcomm supports 5G by default. That's to say: Most premium phones of 2020 will also come with 5G.
- Apart from those two points of focus, the Galaxy S20 phones come straight out of a Samsung recipe book: amazing screens, high-end specs, ultra-premium design with narrow bezels and curved side edges, and three cameras.
- The new Galaxy S20 phones will be released on March 6, starting at $1,000.

As with every new smartphone in a given year, you'll find a typical spec upgrade, including the latest chips, more memory, and so on. But the new processor brings along a new feature that marks a big leap in mobile connectivity - 5G. Whether you want it or not, 5G connectivity will be standard across Samsung's Galaxy S20 lineup, as well as any other smartphone that runs the same chip - the Snapdragon 865.
In a way, Samsung had little choice in adopting 5G connectivity for its new smartphones, seeing as the Snapdragon 865 chip comes with 5G connectivity by default. But Samsung worked on other aspects of the Galaxy S20 on its own volition, namely with big camera and screen improvements.The Galaxy S20 starts at $1,000, the Galaxy S20 Plus at $1,200, and the S20 Ultra at $1,400, and they'll be released on March 6.
Check out the new Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra:
Here they are: the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra.
There's little to point out about the back, other than the new camera module design. Apart from that, it's a slab of glass with curved edges.Advertisement
In many respects, the Galaxy S20 phones are a simple refresh and update over 2019's Galaxy S10 phones.
In other respects, the Galaxy S20 phones are massive leaps. All three models can connect to a 5G network, but only the S20 Plus and S20 Ultra connect to the "fastest" 5G network.Advertisement

Speaking of leaps, the camera on the Galaxy S20 Ultra makes for a massive bump.
Samsung has a neat new camera mode called Single Take that takes a bunch of photos and video from a single tap of the shutter button instead of taking several different photos and switching between different modes.Advertisement
