The Samsung Galaxy S20 is making the rounds again thanks to new bits of leaked information shared by XDA-Developers. There’s quite a lot to take in, so strap yourselves in and let’s dive into this.

Firstly, the source was able to confirm an earlier rumor that the 120Hz display mode will only be available for the FHD+ resolution. This is apparently true, and the phone will automatically switch to 60Hz when detecting the higher WQHD+ pixel count.

Galaxy S20 has an odd screen resolution

We also got news on the Galaxy S20+’ exact screen resolution, which seemed to be slightly higher judging by the newly-leaked Galaxy S20 wallpapers. Indeed, the display seemingly clocks in at 3,200 by 1,440 pixels on a taller 20:9 aspect ratio. These characteristics will be shared across all three Galaxy S20 models including the standard variant, the S20+, and the S20 Ultra.

The screens employed by these three devices are expected to measure 6.3-inch, 6.7-inch, and 6.9-inch, respectively. This will make the Galaxy S20+ larger than last year’s Galaxy S10+, and the source was able to back up this suspicion by sharing the image below.

Likewise, the source claims that the Galaxy S20 will have an ultrasonic under-display fingerprint scanner. If you were hoping that Samsung will switch to an optic-based solution, you might be disappointed, but on the other hand, there’s still a chance that the Galaxy S20 might have the newer ultrasonic sensor from Qualcomm.

New leaked video shows the Galaxy S20+ up close

The video below is of the alleged Galaxy S20+ 5G. It doesn’t have a standard headphone jack, but the source claims that the phone should ship with a pair of AKG Type-C earbuds in the box, which will presumably be the same as the earbuds shipped along with the Galaxy Note 10 series.

There’s not much else to be said based on this video alone. We’ve pretty much seen all there is to the Galaxy S20+’ exterior design so far, and it’s very unlikely for Samsung to be able and pull any surprises at this point in time.

As for other specifications, the Galaxy S20+ appears to feature 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM – which is now expected to be the base memory option for the series – and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The device will reportedly be powered by a battery with a 4,370Ah rated capacity (4,500mAh typical).
