Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G Features (Preview)
It is equipped with a photo lens with 10 times optical and 100 times digital zoom! The huge 6.9-inch screen is perfect for checking multimedia. This device is also ready for the new era of mobile internet: 5G.
We were already used to top screens from Samsung, but this time, they surpassed themselves! The gigantic 6.9-inch display may not make your S20 Ultra very pocket-proof, but it does make watching a movie or series very nice on this device!
The screen is razor-sharp due to the high resolution of 1440p, so you cannot see pixels with the naked eye. The refresh rate of the display is no less than 120Hz, so all animations and games land on your retina super smoothly.
Samsung has put down a beautiful phone with this Galaxy S20 Ultra. The back is made of rock-hard Gorilla Glass, which is a lot more scratch-resistant than ordinary glass. The screen edges are rounded for that premium Samsung look.
Because this super-fast phone has powerful hardware, a good battery is very important. Fortunately, Samsung has put a 5000mAh battery in this phone, so you can spend an entire day with your S20 without any problems. You can quickly charge the battery with the fast charger.
Are you a real mobile photographer? Then this Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is really something for you! The main camera has a sky-high resolution of 108 megapixels! The digital zoom of this powerhouse can magnify up to 100 times. This way you can also make beautiful snapshots from a distance.
The support cameras help you on special occasions. The wide-angle lens is perfect for large scenes and the telephoto lens provides 10 times optical zoom. Finally, the TOF sensor helps you take cool portrait photos with blurred background.
Samsung has built its most powerful mobile chip of 2020 in this phone! This processor provides the best performance you can expect from a mobile phone. In practice, this translates to super-fast app opening and smooth 3D gameplay.
This S20 Ultra is equipped with enough storage for a large number of photos, videos and music. If you record a lot of video in 8K resolution, there is a chance that 128GB, 256GB or 512GB isn’t enough, so expand the memory with a microSD card up to 1TB.
To ensure that you can easily multitask between apps or games, Samsung has provided an impressive 12GB or 16GB of RAM. This implies that the Galaxy S20 Ultra will not stutter as quickly when switching between apps.
With the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, you are ready for the latest generation of mobile internet, because it already has the possibility to connect to 5G! This internet connection is a lot faster than what we were used to from 4G. It has not yet been rolled out in Nigeria, but at least you are ready!
This device comes out of the box with the latest version of the well-known Google operating system: Android 10! This system ensures that all processes on your S20 Ultra run smoothly and clearly. Apps can be downloaded from the Play Store.
