Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S20 lineup has been frequenting our news section lately and the latest scoop comes from a Geekbench listing for the Galaxy S20 5G. This is the smallest of the three S20 phones, believed to come with a 6.2-inch screen, 4,000 mAh battery and the same Snapdragon 865/Exynos 9830 chipset as the larger S20+ and S20 Ultra. The listing for device reveals it bears the SM-G981U model number and packs a Snapdragon 865 SoC alongside 12GB RAM, which is expected to be the base memory config on all S20 models. As far as the actual test scores – those are coming from a pre-production unit and are clearly not relevant to the performance of the final product.
The rest of the S20 specs are still in their rumored state but we should be getting a triple camera setup with a 12MP main camera paired with a 64MP telephoto shooter and a 12 ultrawide cam. The battery is expected to come in at 4,000 mAh. The S20 lineup will be unveiled on February 11 alongside the Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung Galaxy S20 series key specs surface as S20+ 5G confirmed(Geekbench)
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G arriving on February 11 has passed through Geekbench confirming key specs.
The Galaxy S20+ 5G, bearing model number SM-G986U, was spotted on the benchmark database with Android 10 which will be likely layered with One UI 2.0. The smartphone has 12GB RAM in tow, which corroborates a recent rumor of the S20 lineup having 12GB RAM.
The motherboard is listed as “kona”, which hints at the smartphone having the Snapdragon 865 SoC under the hood. Rumors have it that the S20 lineup will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 and Exynos 990 depending on the market, but more regions will get the Snapdragon variant this time.
The Galaxy S20+ 5G scored 923 and 3,267 points in Geekbench 5’s single and multi-core tests, respectively, but this being a pre-production unit, there’s no point in reading much into these.
The non-5G variant of the Galaxy S20+ will sport a 6.7″ Dynamic AMOLED display and will feature a quad camera setup comprising one 64MP, two 12MP, and a ToF unit. For selfies and video calls, there will be a 10MP camera on the front.
The vanilla S20 will skip the ToF module and come with a 6.2″ screen, 10MP selfie snapper, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
The S20 Ultra, on the other hand, will boast a 108MP main sensor with 100x Space Zoom, which will be joined by a 48MP telephoto (10x optical), 12MP ultrawide and ToF modules.
The S20 Ultra’s 5G variant will have 12GB and 16GB RAM and you will get three storage options – 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. It will have also a microSD card slot, allowing storage expansion up to 1TB.
The smartphone will pack a 5,000 mAh battery which will juice up from flat to 100% in 74 minutes, thanks to 45W fast charging.
