Real life pictures of Samsung's Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra plus "reliable" U.S. pricing scheme get leaked
Samsung is expected to unveil the new Galaxy S20 lineup on February 11, but the rumors that have been circulating ever since late 2019 might have already spoiled most of the features the new phones are supposed to bring, so Samsung will probably not surprise too many fans. From what we have heard thus far, the feature list is quite impressive, at least for the S20 Ultra model that is finally getting all the bells and whistles that are usually seen on Chinese premium models (except maybe for the audio jack that Samsung ditched on all flagship models for good). In case you needed more proof regarding the design chosen by Samsung, leakers (more like reviewers that do not really care about NDAs) on the Weibo forums already got hold of the new models and snapped a few real life pics of he S20+ and S20 Ultra.
If anything, the pics yet again confirm that the rear cam setup on the S20 Ultra is almost twice as wide as the one found on the other S20 models. Presumably this is due to the inclusion of the 100X zoom periscope cam at the bottom that features a 48 MP sensor. Interestingly enough, Samsung chose not to pair the periscope with the 108 MP sensor that sits in the top left. Additionally, there appears to be a separate microphone for video recordings between the main sensor and the LED. In any case, the bump looks quite ominous, as it is nearly half as wide as the phone itself.
In other news, reliable leaker Jon Prosser unveiled the U.S. pricing for the entire S20 lineup citing an unnamed Samsung insider. It is not yet clear, but Prosser is most likely referring to the 5G models, since the prices start at US$999 for the regular S20. Then there is the S20+ priced at US$1,199 and the S20 Ultra will cost “just” US$1,399. These prices certainly look inflated compared to comparable specs offered by the Chinese competition, but paying more for the greatest brand is yet another great thing brought to you by modern-day civilization.
