The much awaited update to the Samsung Galaxy S-series is here, and they’ve jumped a lot of numbers to get there, much like how many new upgrades Samsung has put into the new phones.

The Samsung Galaxy S20-series boasts a bold new design with a rectangular camera module in the back, buttery smooth 120Hz displays, and upgraded internals to go along with new improved cameras that focus on low light and zoom capabilities.

The top-of-the-line model is the S20 Ultra, packing a 108MP main camera sensor and can go up to 100x Hybrid Zoom via the 48MP sensor on a 10x folded lens design. This is the biggest of the bunch, with a significant camera module to house the large sensors, 5,000mAh Battery, and 6.9″ Display.

The S20 and S20+ are less crazy, but still impressive. You get a 64MP 3x Telephoto sensor capable of up to 30x Hybrid Zoom, 12MP Wide & Ultrawide which have slightly better sensor sizes, and the S20+ also packs a 3D depth sensor as the 4th lens.

All of the three models shoot video up to 8K in resolution, which is 16x more pixels than 1080p video. The first smartphones in the world to be able to do so.

Aside from 8K video, new features include a new Single Take camera mode for a simpler way to take photos, improved low light Night Mode, and Pro Video mode for videographers out there.

Batteries are larger across the board too, so you’re getting 4,000 mAh, 4,500 mAh, and 5,000 mAh batteries, going up in the lineup. And they charge with 25W Fast Charging too – the S20 Ultra even goes further going up to 45W.
