Support page for Samsung Galaxy S20+ LTE variant pops up

Going by all the leaks and rumors in the last couple of weeks, it’s pretty clear that the Galaxy S20 Ultra will have a leg up or two over the regular Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20+ as far as the spec sheet is concerned. The S20 Ultra could be the only one to feature a microSD slot, Samsung’s new 108MP camera, 16 gigs of RAM, and possibly even a 40MP front camera. And, well, the top-end Galaxy S20 model could also be the only one to come with 5G support as standard.

Only the Galaxy S20 Ultra has no LTE variant

A few months ago, we revealed that the Samsung is developing firmware for the LTE variants of the Galaxy S20 and S20+. That led to some of our readers wondering why LTE variants exist when the new Exynos and Snapdragon chips have 5G connectivity built-in. If you had been hopeful that Samsung would end up scrapping those LTE variants, then you will be disappointed. A support page for the Galaxy S20+’s LTE variant has popped up on Samsung’s Latin America website, pretty much confirming that 5G connectivity is not going to be standard across the lineup.

The non-5G Galaxy S20+ features model number SM-G985F, while the 5G model is SM-G986F. The regular Galaxy S20 will also have both LTE and 5G variants, featuring model numbers SM-G980F and SM-G981F. Samsung will probably sell only the 5G variants in major markets like the US and its home country and launch the LTE variants in more price-sensitive markets. We’ll know for sure once the Galaxy S20 series goes official next month and Samsung starts releasing local availability details in countries around the world.
