The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra in the news

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Product details

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is the most comprehensive model in the S20 series. With a specification list to lick your fingers with, including a 108 megapixel camera with 100x zoom, extremely fast charging and only the most premium materials. And, of course, that includes a price you say you won't pay. Whether this is justified we will investigate here.

What boring appearance

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is a new addition to the Galaxy S family. One we have never seen before and which is even more over the top than the Plus version was at the time. For the best specifications, the most extensive specifications and the most beautiful and exclusive materials. For example, the Galaxy S20 Ultra is completely built from the sturdy Gorilla Glass 6. With the Galaxy S20 and S20+ it's only at the front. On the Galaxy S20 and S20+, it's only at the front. The less strong Gorilla Glass 5 is at the back. The rest of the look looks, let's be honest, a bit boring. It's only available in grey and black when it comes out. The only thing that really stands out is the sturdy camera module on the back.

108 megapixel shooter with Space Zoom

At first glance, that camera promises to have quite a bit on its march. And that's right. It's equipped with a 108 megapixel camera sensor. Far too much for normal purposes, but Samsung uses it cleverly. This way, 9 pixels are merged into 1 so that in most cases you shoot 12 megapixel photos. But with much more detail and sharpness. What it really excels at is its zoom possibilities. You can zoom in 10x optically, without loss of quality and an unprecedented high 100x digital. With this Super Resolution Zoom, also called Space Zoom, you not only humiliate other phones, you literally get the invisible close. Zoom in on the moon. Samsung has also thought about the video possibilities. This time, for example, you can shoot video in up to 8K for when you will soon have an 8K TV at home. All that content can be stored on the S20 Ultra 5G itself. The storage memory is 512 GB large and can be expanded by another 1 TB thanks to its memory slot.

Main Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra specifications

  • Very substantial 6.9 inch Infinity-O Display with 120Hz and rugged Gorilla Glass 6
  • 108MP camera with 100x Space Zoom, 48MP telephoto camera, 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera and depth camera
  • Memory card slot to expand up to 1 TB of memory
  • Sharp 40 megapixel selfie cam with autofocus and f/2.2 lens with 80° angle of view
  • Support for 5G internet (but also suitable for 4G)
  • Premium housing made entirely of Gorilla Glass 6

Quick screen, thick battery

This 5G version of the Galaxy S20 Ultra features a generous 16GB of RAM so you can quickly launch apps and switch between them. It's also the model with the largest battery available from Samsung: 5000 mAh. The largest of all S20 models. This is also necessary because with a screen area of 6.9 inches, the S20 Ultra is no small guy. It is an AMOLED panel, which means nice and bright colors that can even be read in direct sunlight. The highest resolution is Quad HD+. That's 1440 pixels horizontally and that times 3200 lines. New this year is the higher refresh rate of 120Hz. This makes animations such as scrolling through lists look smoother. It also feels a bit faster which is always nice for a phone of this amount.

Recharge faster

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is therefore equipped with the most extensive specifications, the most beautiful materials and the best functions. We have not yet discussed one of them, and that is the extra fast charging method. The included quick charger pumps up to 45 Watt into your battery, while the other S20 models stay at 25. So you can get back on the road faster when your battery runs out. All this beauty is in a fairly large housing. It is therefore not very small and inconspicuous. Unfortunately, this also applies to its price tag. Do you want the best of the best then you should bring a well-filled wallet. So search and compare prices and subscriptions before you order one.
