With an expected launch date is February 2020 and release date in April 2020, the Galaxy S20 5G is destined to be great. Starting with a large 6.2-inch Quad HP+ Dynamic AMOLED screen, there’s nothing quite like it for now. They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but what we can see from the existing leaks that have been going around the internet, it sure looks stunningly beautiful. A fluid 120Hz display is then great in displaying fast-moving videos on its screen.

Under the hood of the Galaxy S20 5G will be nothing but the best.

It is expected to be sporting the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with the fastest octa-core processor and a whopping 12GB RAM. There won’t be anything that can stand in its way, let along slow it down.

What’s good if so much power, but nothing to boasts right? Here’s where the Galaxy S20 5G will shine the brightest with its amazing 12MP+64MP+12MP triple primary camera setup. The dual selfie camera will then let you go out and capture the most amazing selfies there can ever be taken by a smartphone. Can’t wait to test it out once it comes out.

Battery-wise, the 4000 mAh battery on the Galaxy S20 5G will be able to supply enough juice for it to last for a day or two in between charging. When the time comes to plug it in, it will only take 74 minutes to take it up to 100%. The wireless charging feature will be there, as well as the reverse wireless charging which can replace your traditional power bank.

Last but not least, the 5G connectivity will be available on the Galaxy S20 5G. The fastest and the fastest internet speed around.

Conclusion:

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G couldn’t have come soon enough, as it will be claiming the crown for the flagship of the year as soon as it is released. There’s no stopping it unless there’s something else under the sleeve of its rival, but it seems very unlikely.

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G is slated for a release this coming April 2020. It is said to carry a price that starts from 900 Euro or ~999 USD for the 128GB internal storage variant. For the moment, there’s an only Black colour that is confirmed – but surely there will be more to come.
