Samsung unveils Galaxy S20 smartphones with 5G support and ‘pro-grade’ cameras with three and four lenses

Samsung today unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S20, at simultaneous events in London and San Francisco.

The new handset, which was heavily leaked prior to launch, comes in three models – the 6.2-inch Galaxy S20, the 6.7-inch S20 + and the 6.9-inch S20 Ultra.

All three have 5G support and come with the Infinity-O screen from Samsung, which covers the entire face of the phone, with exceptionally thin edges around the edge.

The distinctive “perforator” selfie camera, which debuted on the Galaxy S10 last year, has shrunk and moved from the top right corner to the center of the screen.

It has a 10-megapixel wide-angle lens, allowing you to place more people in the frame, and comes with native integration of the Google video chat app, Duo.

Preorders start on February 21 and customers can get hold of an S20 from March 6. Prices start at $ 999 (€ 914) for the standard S20 and go up step by step with the S20 + that costs $ 1,199 (€ 1,097), and the S20 Ultra debuts at $ 1,399 (€ 1,280).

A large rectangular module on the back of the phone houses the “pro-grade” rear camera of the Galaxy S20

But the striking feature of the Galaxy S20 is its “pro-grade” camera on the back, housed in a large rectangular module on the back of the phone.

The standard S20 has a triple reversing camera with one 12MP wide angle lens, one 12MP ultra wide angle lens and a 64MP telephoto lens.

The S20 + comes with the same set of lenses with the addition of the ‘DepthVision’ Time of Flight camera from Samsung, which can judge depth and distance and can be used to take bokeh effect photos, with the subject in focus and background blurry.

Meanwhile, the S20 Ultra has no less than 108MP wide angle lens, a 12MP ultra wide angle lens and a 48MP telephoto lens, as well as a DepthVision sensor.

All three models come with “Space Zoom” – a combination of an optical zoom lens and an AI-powered digital zoom lens.

This allows you to zoom in up to 30x in the case of the S20 and S20 +, and up to 100x in the case of the S20 Ultra, and crop photos while maintaining image quality.

“We want to ensure that consumers can capture content and really feel part of the promotion,” said Mark Holloway, head of Smartphone Product Operations at Samsung.

“So if you’re in the back of a football stadium, you can still capture what’s happening on the field and share it with your friends.”

The rear view camera is also capable of recording video in 8K quality, which can be uploaded to YouTube in full resolution or can be converted to 4K, Full-HD or HD for sharing.

The S20 series comes with a range of software features designed to help you take better photos, including “Pro Mode,” which allows you to adjust aperture, focus, and exposure settings, “Super Steady”, which stabilizes video images, and ‘Night Hyperlapse’, with which you can make videos with hyperlapse in low light conditions.

There is also a new feature called Single Take, which allows you to record images from all cameras on the back of the device simultaneously, allowing you to switch between different views and choose the best recording.

The Galaxy S20 comes in “cosmic gray” (left), as well as an assortment of other colors, depending on the model

The phones will be available in the UK from March 13 and are all available with 128 GB and 512 GB storage options
