Each Galaxy S20 model features an AMOLED HD+ display with 1400x3200 mega pixel resolution. The main difference between the trio of devices is size: The Galaxy S20 has a 6.2-inch display, the Galaxy S20+ measures 6.7 inches, and the S20 Ultra is the largest handset at 6.92 inches.


Touted by Samsung as 'a revolutionary camera experience', the S20 and S20+ both come with a 64-megapixel rear-facing camera, with 30x 'Space Zoom' capability and a 3x optical zoom system.

Meanwhile, the S20 Ultra's standout feature is a 108-megapixel camera with 100x Space Zoom that combines a 10x Hybrid Optic Zoom. Samsung's 'most advanced zoom yet', the S20 Ultra camera is also enhanced by AI and a Super Resolution Zoom, helping you to get up close to the action.

Moving on to the front-facing camera, this is also different depending on which model you choose. Opt for the S20 Ultra and 'make your selfies stand out' with a 40-megapixel sensor. With the S20 or S20+, you'll get a slightly less sharp 10-MP front-facing camera.

Cinematic 8K video

Samsung boasts, 'We've revolutionised the resolution for mobile video - taking it from 4K all the way to 8K.' This 'super-sharp resolution' aims to give unrivalled details. A first on Galaxy phones, you can also play your 8K videos on your QLED 8K TV to get the full effect and see the incredible detail on your television screen.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 trio also includes an editing suite right on your phone, where you can make edits to multiple videos and photos, insert transitions or subtitles, change the speed, or merge photos and videos together to make a highlight reel.

Battery life

Despite their large, high-resolution displays and 120Hz refresh rates, all three devices have powerful batteries claiming to give you all day power. The S20 Ultra has the most powerful battery at 5,000mAh, while the S20+ has 4,500mAh and the S20, 4,000mAh. The batteries are also intelligent, adjusting to your usage habits to save power.


The S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra come with massive internal storage for all your hi-res videos and photos. The S20 and S20+ comes with 128GB of storage capacity, and the S20 Ultra is available in 128GB or a whopping 512GB. You can even expand the capacity with a microSD card for even more storage - up to 1.5TB total.


You can switch up the look of your Samsung while protecting your device by purchasing from a range of Samsung's own compatible cases in a variety of designs. Some choices include an LED view cover which allows you to see your notifications with a variety of bright LED icons, while covering and protecting the screen. You can also choose between vibrant silicon cases or classic leather options.
