Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G product description

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G is the 5G version of the S20 Plus and therefore a future-proof member of the S20 family. The S20 series announced in 2020 is quite extensive and therefore this S20+ 5G runs the risk of being forgotten. Too bad because it has a lot to offer. What exactly is something we are going to find out for here

Bigger but now with single selfiecam

This is actually the standard model S20+ that Samsung releases. Altho also the 4G model is sold, you hardly see it in combination with a contract. To make things easy for ourselves, we now call it 'just' the Samsung Galaxy S20+. The best we can compare it with its predecessor; the S10+. Then we immediately notice the slightly larger casing. And yet, the screen has become considerably larger; going up from 6.4 to 6.7 inches. This is due to the much thinner screen bezels. Also, the oversized hole punch for the double selfiecam has disappeared. Instead you get a small punch hole in the centre. This allows room for a single 10 megapixel selfiecam with autofocus. Basically enough for all your selfie-adventures.

Faster screen, faster charging

Other improvements can be found on the display. It now has a refresh rate of 120 Hertz. By refreshing images as much as 120 times per second you get smoother animations, for example while scrolling thru your contact list or Twitter feed. Not only does that look beautiful, it also eats up a little more battery. That is why it is good that Samsung has placed a larger 4500 mAh battery in the S20+. What's more, it is intelligent, so it adapts to your habits. It saves even more so you can easily get one day on a full charge. And if that isn't enough, the 25 Watt quick charger that comes in the box will get you up and running in no time. A big improvement compared to the 15 Watt charger of the S10+. You can also charge the Galaxy S20+ wirelessly via Fast Wireless Charging 2.0. You can even give away power wirelessly. Charges other phones or your new wireless Galaxy Buds+ earbuds. Just put the charging case on the back, that's it

Main Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G specifications

  • Somewhat bigger Infinity-O display of 6,7 inch
  • 4x camera system including 64 MP main camera, 3x zoom and 8K video
  • Possibility to place memory cards
  • 4G and 5G support for lightning-fast mobile internet
  • Use up to 2 SIM cards thanks to Dual SIM support
  • Relative high 10 megapixel self-imaging camera

Ready for the future

Do we have anything to complain about? Absolutely! For instance that the headphone port is missing. No flagship Samsung Galaxy phone is equipped with the port anymore. Listening to music via your own favourite wired headphones has to be done via a dongle. You can also use the included AKG plugs, it's up to you. It is also noticeable that not much has changed spectacularly on the S20+. Many specifications have remained the same. However, the design has become more modern and the upgrades that are included are very subtle and easy to use. Better image stabilisation for video, filming in 8K, the higher refresh rate of the screen and of course being ready for 5G. Piece by piece upgrades that are very welcome and make it very future proof.


Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G in the news

S20plus white red

Europe get new Samsung Galaxy S20+ colours

Phone news ·

Good news for those who were tyred of the Cloud Blue, Cosmic Grey, Cosmic Black or Aura Blue version of the Galaxy S20+. Soon Samsung will bring some new colours; Cloud White and Aura Red.

The new colours appeared on the Hungarian Samsung site but are also expected elsewhere in Europe. They are available for both the Galaxy S20+ 4G and the S20+ 5G. Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20+ in February of 2020. It was originally only available in the colours Cloud Blue, Cosmic Grey and Cosmic Black.

S20+ now also in Cloud White and Aura Red

A few months later Samsung also announced the dark blue version Aura Blue. It was previously released together with Aura Red and Cloud Pink in South Korea. This is a strategy that Samsung often uses. It gives providers the exclusive right to sell a specific colour. Something that always does well in terms of sales. The same seems to be happening for some versions of the S20+. For example, the new colours of the S20+ 5G are not for sale directly from Samsung in Hungary, but thru an exclusive partner. It will therefore take some time before all the new colours are widely available.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ now available in Aura Blue

Phone news ·

Samsung has announced a new colour of the Galaxy S20+; Aura Blue. A remarkable colour because the device was already available in blue; the more light blue Cloud Blue. This brings the total number of colours to 4.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ Aura Blue with its dark hue has a somewhat tougher look. The previously released Cloud Blue version leans more towards white. This Aura Blue is more distinctly blue. A different colour does not mean different specifications. Expect the same smooth 120Hz display and a Quad camera system.

The new colour version of the S20+ is available immediately but only from exclusive providers. In the Netherlands that are T-Mobile and Tele2. The retail price is a hefty 1349 euros. That's a considerable surcharge compared to current colour, compared to the Cosmic Grey colour at the time of writing even over 400 euros. Whether this new colour justifies this high price remains to be seen, because let's be honest it's not that special. However, we do expect the price to drop as much as it will be available at other webshops. Our advice for now is; wait and see.
