The Galaxy S20 Ultra by Samsung is easily the most trending phone in the market today. This is not only because it is the first 5G enabled smartphone in the country, but it is also so for several other reasons as well. The phone is built with aluminium and comes in two very uncommon colours, cosmic grey and cosmic black. Moreover, the phone is protected with Gorilla glass in the back and the front. However, the phone can be heavy due to its size, at 222 grams.
Coming to the reasons, why this phone is easily the most trending phone in the market, firstly because, Samsung mentioned that the S20 Ultra will change photography and with the camera specs in this phone, it actually might. The 108MP wide-angle lens along with a 48MP and 12MP secondary camera is a feat not many in the competition can beat. Not only so, the 16GB RAM with up to 512GB internal space, but this phone also beats most laptops in the market today. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has one of the best screen resolutions in the market at 1440 x 3200 pixels with a pixel density of 511 PPI. Even though the phone is priced at almost Rs.1 lakh, the phone is more than worth it.
The display of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is top notch and easily among the best in class. The AMOLED 2X captive screen of the phone makes everything better to look at on the phone with 16M colours. The screen size of the phone at 6.9-inches is among the biggest in the smartphone industry today and Samsung just made it better with almost a 90% screen to body ratio of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, since it is protected with Gorilla Glass 6 in the front and the back, makes it easier to protect the phone while viewing.
With such heavy features, camera specs and much more, the S20 Ultra’s hardware is not only powerful but sustains every function of the phone seamlessly. Even though the phone uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset in the United States of America, the phone uses the powerful Exynos 990 for all the handsets which are exported all over the world.
The octa-core processor consists of a 2.84 GHz Kryo 585 along with 3 chipsets of 2.42 GHz Kryo 585 and 4 chipsets of 1.8 GHz Kryo 585. Along with this, the phone is also equipped with a top-of-the-line Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) of Mali-G77 MP11 graphics card.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra runs on Samsung’s very own software, the One UI 2 along and is also powered with the Android 10. In this way, a user can access the features of Samsung’s very own user interface along with having access to the Play Store by Google and all its apps.
Even though one cannot expect the camera only to make up for the price of the phone, the camera specifications of the phone are among the major factors which makes it a giant in the market today. Samsung, with this phone, had mentioned that it is the smartphone that will change photography and rightly so, with the powerful 108MP wide camera and the 48MP secondary telephoto camera which provides a 10x Optical Zoom for all photos. This is the most powerful camera in the smartphone industry across all categories in the current market. The S20 Ultra also has a 12MP ultrawide camera along with a 0.3MP Time-of-Flight lens.
When it comes to the front camera, since the phone does not have a notch or a bezel, the S20 Ultra houses a powerful 40MP wide camera in the front for the perfect selfies and video recording as well.
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra is the first phone in the country which is 5G enabled. The phone is enabled with all networks which include GSM, LTE, 5G, HSPA, CDMA and EVDO. The S20 Ultra is also enabled with the latest WiFi technology, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, along with WiFi Direct technology and hotspot.
Equipped with Bluetooth 5.0, the S20 Ultra is GPS enabled and also supports NFC and wireless charging.
Usually, with high priced phones, battery, though an important factor can often take a backseat. However, with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the tech giant has left no stone unturned and have given a powerful 5,000 mAh battery to the phone.
This battery comes with a fast-charging option with a 45-W charger and is enabled with wireless charging technology as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is a phone you never knew you needed, especially if it falls in your price bracket. The phone has everything you would look for and, in every aspect, whether is display, design, camera, battery, software or even hardware. With a phone whose specifications can give most premium laptops a run for their phone in terms of RAM and internal storage, there is no phone in the market which can compete with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra at the moment.
Samsung, at the beginning of the month of April, launched the new Galaxy S20 series which included the S20, S20+ and the S20 Ultra. Among these phones, the S20 Ultra has been equipped with the most powerful specs ever seen in a phone, especially its camera. However, with great power also comes great prices and the S20 Ultra is priced at $1,399.
Among the top features of the phone, the 100x zoom camera is something which is never seen before and the company rightly said that the phone would change photography. Along with this, the phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 865 processor and a powerful 5,000 mAh battery along with a 120 Hz display. The phone comes in a size of 6.9 inches with an HD screen scaling up to 8K. The 108 MP camera is one of the three camera lenses on the phone.
The phone is also equipped with Samsung’s Single Take, which is a camera software which enables you to take time-lapse videos, standard videos, best shots and boomerangs with just a press of one button. The phone, even though heavily priced in the market comes with specifications and top-notch features which makes it worth all the money.
