The launch of the new iteration not only gathers a huge amount of news on the day of the event, but also of previous rumors. And, despite the fact that we knew much of the characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, that is no excuse why we were not surprised to know it officially. Without a doubt, he was born to conquer.

The Galaxy S20 this year start in the form of three models: S20 ‘normal’, S20 + and S20 Ultra. As is logical, the technical characteristics and the size grow from the basic model to the most equipped; growing also the cost of the device.
