As we edge closer the official Samsung Galaxy S20 reveal on 11 February 2020, more leaks have come to light about the upcoming range of smartphones. A new leak from XDA Developers has confirmed a load of new information about the flagship device including a new 120Hz refresh rate display, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor and the removal of the headphone jack.
According to the information, the Samsung Galaxy S20 will feature a 3200 x 1440 display at a 20:9 aspect ratio. This display will be taller than the older devices and feature a hole-punch camera cutout similar to the Note 10. The big feature will be the new 120Hz refresh rate which will run the display at double that of last year’s models allowing for smoother animations.
XDA Developers revealed that this 120Hz feature will only be available when you select the FHD+ resolution in the settings. It will lower the resolution but increase the refresh rate. The higher WQHD+ will only work at 60Hz.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 will use an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, similar to the S10. It is said that Samsung has managed to fix the issues users had with slow scanning while using a screen protector thanks to this new second-generation 3D Sonic Max sensor.
Other specs of the Samsung Galaxy S20 include new 25W fast charging, 12GB of RAM and a 4,500mAh battery. Unfortunately, the phone will be ditching the headphone jack after years of keeping it while other companies abandoned it. Samsung will be pushing its wireless earphones and USB Type-C audio.
The upcoming Galaxy S20 range is said to release in three models including a smaller device, larger device and the new high-end S20 Ultra. No information regarding the screen sizes has yet to be revealed although rumours claim the devices will come in a 6.2-inch, 6.7-inch and a 6.9-inch respectively. The S20 Ultra is said to pack a 5,000mAh battery, 16GB of RAM and a new 108-megapixel sensor.
