Samsung brings back the robust Galaxy phones with the new XCover Pro

Samsung brings back the robust Galaxy phones with the new XCover Pro

We already know quite a bit about the camera hardware the phones will feature, but a new leak has given us our most detailed look yet. The new flagship model is scheduled to make its official debut at the unpack event in San Francisco, the US on february 11 (local time). Samsung is set to unveil the S20 during a live-streamed keynote next.

The display will refresh at a rate of 120Hz. It is sporting a 3200×1440 resolution.

The shape of the device is also less curvy compared to Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus. And as Weinbach showed in another tweet, that shows the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S10+ side-by-side, it is indeed taller. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoCs are only available when paired with the X55 5G modem, which means the S20 and S20 Ultra might use Samsung's own custom CPU cores and its LTE modem technology. That would follow along with another rumor we've seen, stating that the USA will only get 5G models. The 12GB of RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage is nice, as is the 4,500mAh battery. We were also able to get a picture of the device with the 120Hz settings toggle, confirming that the phone does indeed support the feature. The tweet doesn't mention whether the glass is continuous, and therefore foldable, but that seems to be the implication. There is going to be a 64-megapixel main sensor, along with two 12-megapixel sensors. A 5x lens is much more believable, and even then, its not always a great zoom length for regular use on the P30 Pro.

Completing the camera setup should be a Time-of-Flight sensor that's accompanied by unspecified ultra-wide-angle and macro shooters. It has nearly the same specs with Galaxy Note 10 where the front of the device has a center hole-punch cutout that is best for those who love selfies.

Now, details about the Galaxy S20 series' camera specifications have surfaced online.

Likewise, the source claims that the Galaxy S20 will have an ultrasonic under-display fingerprint scanner.

We told you repeatedly a year ago not to buy the Galaxy Fold foldable, a phone that came with annoying warnings and instructions on how to handle the screen so it wouldn't break.

As we approach the recently confirmed launch date for the Galaxy S20 line-up, the leaks are starting to heat up as well. The other was more passive - debris could make its way into the phone and damage it from inside. But it is looking pretty impressive so far.
