Samsung is making 5G available to more consumers with the launch of new Galaxy S20 series. The new series comprises of Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra, all of which are set to launch with 5G variants. Out of these, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra will support both flavors of 5G – Sub6 as well as mmWave in standalone and non-standalone mode. However, Galaxy S20 currently only supports Sub6 variant of 5G in standalone and non-standalone mode.
Two of these S20s, S20+ and S20 Ultra will harness true potential of 5G mmWave with multi-gigabit download speeds upto 5 Gbps! These can also connect to mid-band and low-band of 5G with download speeds little faster than LTE ensuring seamless coverage. However, these multi-band premium experiences will come with premium price tags starting at $1,199 for the base model of S20+ and $1,399 for S20 Ultra.
Verizon is the only operator in the US that supports mmWave 5G, will start selling $999 entry-level mmWave version S20 in Q2 2020. S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra differ in display with sizes such as 6.2 inch, 6.7 inch and 6.9 inch respectively. S20 and S20+ both sport 64 MP primary camera lens and S20 Ultra sports a whooping 108 MP lens that offers 100x zoom capability (overkill!?)
It’s good to see more and more flagships launching with 5G and we expect more to arrive soon.
