Hands-on with the Galaxy S20
- March 06, 2020
A next-generation device built for a new generation of users, the Galaxy S20 was created to empower us to communicate and express ourselves in incredible new ways.
Featuring a refined design and a new, super-high-resolution camera setup that brings out the best in every image and moment, Samsung’s latest flagships completely change how we capture and experience the world around us. Read on to learn more about how Samsung optimised the devices for the way we live today.
A Bar-Raising Design
To make it easy for users to find the smartphone that’s right for them, the Galaxy S20 is available in a choice of three models: the 6.2-inch Galaxy S20, the 6.7-inch Galaxy S20+, and the 6.9-inch Galaxy S20 Ultra. Each features a thin and light design that’s topped off by the latest product of Samsung’s mobile display leadership: the nearly bezel-less, full-frontal Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O Display.
The Galaxy S20 and S20+’s displays include a 10MP selfie camera, while the S20 Ultra boasts a 40MP lens. The Galaxy S20 Ultra also features a powerful Quad camera setup that offers pro-grade photos and videos.
A Simpler Way to Shoot
Forget choosing between a photo or video when capturing a special moment. Stay in the moment while you capture it by simultaneously taking photos and videos with the Galaxy S20’s Single Take function.
The way it works is simple. Single Take lets you record up to ten seconds of ultra-wide/wide-angle footage, and uses advanced AI to recommend a variety of formats so you can pick your favourite takes. The function utilises multiple cameras at once to capture up to ten high-quality photos and four video clips, and even suggests edits and video effects like cropping, Live Focus and time lapse to help you choose the perfect shot.
Experience Life in 8K
Sometimes, a scene can be so beautiful, inspiring or unbelievably cute that you need the highest possible resolution to do it justice. For those moments when every detail matters, the Galaxy S20 allows you to record videos in immersive 8K resolution.
Four times higher resolution than 4K and 16 times higher than FHD, 8K video captures content in true-to-life detail. Such impeccable resolution essentially transforms each frame into a high-res still that users can instantly zoom in on and save as an unforgettable photo.
Once you’ve recorded your content, the smartphone makes it easy to cast your video to your Samsung QLED 8K to enjoy a truly peerless viewing experience.
