Here's your first look at the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G
With Samsung’s annual Unpacked event just a few weeks away, the leaks are coming in hot and fast. We’ve seen CAD-renders and case leaks, but thanks to some new fresh leaks (h/t XDA-Developers), we’re getting our first look at live images of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G.
First up, the leak seemingly confirms that Samsung is stepping away from the Galaxy S11 nomenclature in favor of the S20 series. On the front, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G sports an Infinity-O display that has a centered punch hole. While Samsung is continuing with a 2.5D curved display, the actual curvature appears to be significantly lower than before. The leak suggests that the display is almost flat to the touch. Recent rumors have also indicated that the Galaxy S20 series will pack 120Hz displays that should deliver a silky smooth experience.
Over at the back, the quad-camera set up lines up with existing rumors. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5G is expected to pack an ultra-wide, telephoto, and macro lens alongside the main camera sensor. The latter will sport a new 1.8μm sensor that should deliver better low-light imaging while retaining the 12MP resolution. Of course, the phone will ship with the Snapdragon 865 chipset, which will be the commercial debut of that new processor.
Samsung Unpacked is scheduled for February 11 where we expect to get the low-down on all three variants that Samsung is believed to be launching this year. Alongside this, we expect to see the company’s second foldable that may or may not be called the Galaxy Bloom. While the name might be up for debate, there’s little doubt that it will have a clamshell design over the tablet-style foldout we saw with the Galaxy Fold.
