- 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.

Samsung unveiled its three new premium flagship smartphones on Tuesday: the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Nope, I haven’t missed one. There’s no “e” model this year, like the highly acclaimed Galaxy S10e from 2019 that came with a lower, $750 price tag but came with 98% of the most important specs and features from the full-fat Galaxy S10 models. The standard S20 is now the base Galaxy model, 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.
