Design

Galaxy S20

The current design of high-end smartphones has very little room for improvement, margin that happens to include the cameras under the screen as a design change that can be considered novel and out of the usual trend in the world of telephony. This new generation maintains the same exterior design with the only difference in the location of the front camera, which is now in the upper central part.

Processor, memory and storage

As in previous years, the Korean company Samsung has decided to launch two different versions depending on the destination of the terminal. For the US and Chinese market, the Galaxy S20 is managed by the Snapdragon 865, an 8-core processor (2 at 2,84 GHz, 2 at 2,42 GHz and four at 1,8 GHz). The European version is managed by the Samsung processor Exynos 990, an 8-core processor (two at 2,73 GHz, two at 2,6 GHz and four Cortex at 2 GHz).

The RAM memory that we will find in the new S20 range varies depending on the model. While both the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20 Pro are managed by the 8 GB of RAM the 4G version, the 5G version is accompanied by 12 GB. The highest-end model, the Galaxy S20 Ultra, reaches 16 GB of memory in the only version in which it is available, 5G.
