One look at it, and you know that the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G means serious business. Starting with a large 6.9-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2x screen, this ensures that you get the optimum viewing pleasure with the highest of details. Bezels are pushed way back, and there won't be any notch in sight, just a tiny camera hole. The HDR10+ certified Infinity-O Display offers a big, immersive screen with limited on-screen interruptions.

You don't have to worry about your precious (and expensive) smartphone, as the protection that comes with it is rock solid. Gorilla Glass all over, and the IP68 certification means it can withstand a lot of punishment – and still survive.

Under the hood of the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is the best piece of hardware ever assembled. With nothing but the best, the Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with the fastest Kryo octa-core processor, highest-end graphics and a whopping 12GB or an even mind-boggling 16GB memory.

Camera-wise, from the test shots that have been taken; it can be said that the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is the best camera smartphone out there in the market. Can you imagine a quad primary camera at your service: 108MP + Periscope 48MP + 12MP + 0.3MP with TOF 3D? All these four combinings well to truly revolutionize the entire industry and taking it to a whole new level. There are millions more pixels for impossibly sharp shots that you can crop and print, without losing a single detail. The most advanced zoom yet starts with 10x Hybrid Optic Zoom enabled by a revolutionary folded lens and high-resolution image sensor. Couple that with Super Resolution Zoom enhanced by camera AI to get close up to the action and capture moments you might have missed.

Then there's the 40MP selfie camera with all the bells and whistles that you can only dream of. It gives you pro-grade technology, so all your selfies come out very detailed.

A choice of 128GB or 256GB or 512GB of internal storage sure is a lot more than you will ever need. And when the time comes to add more space, pop in a microSDXC card and you are all set to go.

In terms of battery, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is blessed with a large 5000 mAh battery that will have no problem to supply enough juice to power up the smartphone for a whole day or two. It is intelligent enough, to be able to adjust to your mobile habits to save power and last longer. With the fast battery charging feature, it only takes 58 minutes to take it up to 100%. Not forgetting the wireless charging and reverse wireless charging feature it has, that makes it a real life-saver.

Oh did we mention that it has 5G connectivity as well? Even though it is not yet widespread, but it sure comes in handy and makes for a future-proof smartphone.

Conclusion:

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is the next level in camera smartphone technology, and we are just getting started with 2020. When you thought it couldn't get any better, here comes a masterpiece to become the trendsetter and what we can expect in the years to come.
