Leaving aside the first of them -the most advanced-, the last two arrive to succeed the Galaxy S10 + and the Galaxy S10, respectively, and they do so in compliance with everything that had been leaked so far, both in terms of design. as well as its benefits.

Both terminals bring the Exynos 990 as a brain and are compatible with 5G NSA and SA networks, but they differ in dimensions, in the battery and, mainly, in the rear camera: triple in the standard model and quadruple in the Plus variant. Let’s look at all its features carefully.

Both the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20 + have a Dynamic AMOLED screen with Quad HD + resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10 + support. However, the size of the diagonal is different in the two terminals: 6.2 inches for the S20 and 6.7 for the S20 +, which translates into a pixel density of 563 and 525 dpi respectively.

Mobile gaming is in luck, 120Hz screens will reign in 2020

Of course, the two terminals have a perforation in the center and a ultrasonic fingerprint reader under the panel, which joins facial recognition to complete the duo of biometric authentication systems. And as a packaging, a body that boasts a contained thickness and IP68 certification for resistance to water and dust.

Inside both phones, we find the Exynos 990, Samsung’s most powerful processor to date. This 7 nm EUV (ultraviolet lithography) chipset is accompanied by the ARM Mali-G77 MP11 GPU and the Exynos Modem 5123, a 5G modem that gives these two new models compatibility with 5G NSA and SA networks.

The RAM memory options for the LTE and 5G versions are identical in the two terminals, 8 GB and 12 GB LPDDR5, respectively, same as the operating system: Android 10 with Samsung’s One UI 2.0 layer. There is a difference in storage, because to the 128 GB variant offered by the Galaxy S20 and the S20 + LTE, the S20 + 5G adds another with 512 GB. In all cases, expandable with a micro SD card of up to 1 TB.

More cameras and more resolution

Although these two new members of the Galaxy S family share the 10 MP front camera with f / 2.2 aperture, the rear camera -with 8K video recording in both cases and housed in a rectangular module- does present an important difference: it consists of three sensors in the case of the S20 and four in the case of the S20 +.

Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 + and S20 Ultra, comparison: this is how they are against OnePlus 7T Pro, Huawei Mate 30 Pro and the rest of the high-end

So the two share a 12 MP f / 2.2 ultra wide angle, a 12 MP f / 1.8 wide angle and a 64 MP f / 2.0 telephoto lens, to which the Plus model adds a ToF sensor that Samsung calls DephVision. In both cases, the wide angle and the telephoto lens have an OIS optical image stabilizer, and the hybrid zoom reaches 3x (30X in digital).

If we now look at the battery, that of the S20 has 4,000 mAh, while that of the S20 + goes up to 4,500 mAh. Of course, both are compatible with fast charging and fast wireless charging. The connectivity options are identical in the two models, including the aforementioned compatibility with 5G networks.
