The race to have the world’s best smartphone never stops and Samsung’s recent reveal might have just kicked everything up a notch.
Debuting with a 108MP sensor, 8K video, and 100x zoom, Samsung isn’t joking around with the awkwardly named Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Equipped with a 108MP sensor, the wide-angle camera has a f/1.8 lens and takes photos at full 108MP in well-lit environments down to 12MP in the dark. It will feature both optical zoom and an artificial intelligence-powered “Super Resolution Zoom” with the S20 topping out at 100x zoom per Samsung’s marketing.
All models will have 8K video shooting capabilities with still frames of over 33MP possible. They also will have 3200 x 1440 AMOLED displays and every model will have 5G network compatibility. What makes the new Galaxy lineup so compelling is that, no matter what model is selected, the end-user is getting a lot of computing power right at their fingertips.
Name aside, it looks set to be one of the few smartphones that actually lives up to its billing and will assuredly take the top spot as the world’s most advanced when it arrives for consumer consumption on March 6th. Preorders will start before then, commencing on February 21st, and all three variants will be available. As far as pricing goes, the new Galaxy S20 Ultra is not going to be cheap, ranging from $USD 1,000 to $USD 1,400 according to PetaPixel.
