Every device in the Galaxy S20 series-the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra-comes equipped with the latest 5G technology.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. On February 11, unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S20, a new series of flagship devices that fundamentally change the way users capture and experience their world. The Galaxy S20 series introduces a brand-new camera architecture that combines AI with Samsung's largest image sensor yet for stunning image quality. Along with the camera, the Galaxy S20 makes the experience of everything we love to do with our phones, easier and better-enjoy personalized music for every moment of the day, watch videos the way they are meant to be seen and play console-style games on-the-go.

"As we enter this new decade, 5G will completely change how we communicate and how we experience the world around us," said Dr TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. "As all three Galaxy S20 variants come with 5G connectivity, Samsung is providing a next-generation device for transforming people's lives. With an incredible, AI powered camera, you can capture the moments as they happen and connect more seamlessly with the people you love."

Shaping the future of communication

Every device in the Galaxy S20 series-the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra-comes equipped with the latest 5G technology.  The Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra are the first devices able to power new mobile experiences that take advantage of both sub-6 and mmWave. The Galaxy S20 supports sub-6.   All three devices are capable of delivering non-standalone and standalone 5G capabilities.

Changing the way pictures are taken

The Galaxy S20 introduces an entirely new camera system-powered by AI and with our biggest image sensor yet-to bring out the best in every image and every moment.

>Details in Stunning Clarity: With a larger image sensor available on the Galaxy S20 series, camera resolution is significantly increased, for more detailed images with added flexibility for editing, cropping, and zooming. S20 and S20+ have a 64MP camera. S20 Ultra has 108MP camera. Another benefit is that the larger sensors take in more light, so you get rich image quality even in low light situations. The S20 Ultra takes things a step further with the option to shift dynamically between a high resolution 108MP mode and a 12MP mode, thanks to nona-binning technology which combines nine pixels into one at the sensor level.

>Groundbreaking zoom capability: With the Galaxy S20's Space Zoom technology that uses a combination of Hybrid Optic Zoom and Super Resolution Zoom, which includes AI-powered digital zoom, even when you are far away you can zoom in close. Use up to 30X zoom on the Galaxy S20 and S20+, or step-up to the revolutionary folded lenses on the S20 Ultra, which uses AI powered, multi-image processing to reduce quality loss at high zoom levels so that users can experience Super Resolution Zoom up to 100X with a clearer view ever than before.

>Single take, multiple possibilities: Single Take lets users stay in the moment, while they capture the moment. Thanks to its AI camera technologies, the Galaxy S20 can capture a number of photos and videos, such as Live focus, cropped, Ultra Wide and more that captures moments the best.

>Pro-grade filming capability: The Galaxy S20 offers stunning 8K video shooting, so users can capture their world in true-to-life color and quality. When the users are done shooting, they can stream their video to a Samsung QLED 8K TV and enjoy its best-in-class viewing experience  or grab a still from an 8K video and turn it into a high-res photo.  And, even the bumpiest videos look like they were shot using an action camera, thanks to Super Steady and its anti-rolling stabilization and AI motion analysis.

Novel user experience

The Galaxy makes the experience of everything that users love to do on their phone, easier and better. With new features and impactful partnerships, inspired by open collaboration, the Galaxy S20 is built for how people use their phones today.

Now, from the dialer, users can tap Duo to start a video call and enjoy, for the first time ever, FHD quality. Google Duo is compatible across operating systems, so that users are not limited to who they can video chat with.

>YouTube on 5G: Samsung partnered with YouTube so that the users can upload their 8K videos directly to YouTube-and with integrated 5G capabilities, experience ultra-fast upload speeds. 

>Entertainment: Taking advantage of the Galaxy S20's pro-grade camera, Netflix and Samsung are working together to put the Galaxy S20 in the hands of renowned directors to capture bonus content based on popular Netflix Originals.
