Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra 5G: The phones, the features, and everything we know to date

Samsung's Galaxy flagships may not be the most exciting phone launches anymore, but that doesn't mean they're any less high-quality, desirable phones — just at some point you run out of gimmicks and instead focus on continuing to hone your premium handset design. And while that long-term trend may not change, this year it's really starting to feel like there's something special in the air — be it reports of a super-smooth display, exceptional camera performance, or a big shift to Galaxy S naming — something that's getting people excited again.

The tidal waves of Galaxy S20 leaks continue to roll in. It's been high season for leaks bloggers like Max Weinbach, who we've just had on the Android Police Podcast. For Ishan Agarwal, who, along with India's MySmartPrice, is responsible for the latest spec dump on the S20 5G, S20+ 5G, and S20 Ultra 5G models that will be sold in many parts of Europe and Asia, this season just got a bit higher.

Potential Pixel 4a codename leaks create more confusion than ever around the phone

A report from XDA Developers today cites the existence of three codenames potentially related to Google's upcoming affordable smartphones (or phone), and evidence discovered alongside those names paints a more confusing picture of the situation than ever. The long and short of it: there could be two Pixel 4a variants after all, and one of them could support 5G.

According to XDA, the three codenames of note are sunfish, redfin, and bramble. Sunfish is allegedly equipped with a Snapdragon 730, a 4G-only Qualcomm chipset for mid-range phones. This makes sense: the Snapdragon 730 is the logical successor to the Snapdragon 670 found in the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, and probably carries a pretty similar price tag.

Samsung might be planning a budget 5G phone for the US

Samsung's lineup of budget phones is incredibly complicated, with many models being simple re-releases of devices from other regions. One of those phones is the Galaxy A71, which was announced at CES, but Samsung didn't seem to have plans for a US release. Now it seems the A71 might come to the United States after all — as a budget 5G phone.

Mother of god: Rumor claims Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will have up to 16GB of RAM

XDA's Max Weinbach has been on a roll for the last few days, trickling out a nearly continuous stream of details surrounding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S20 phones. In addition to showing off the very first photos of the Galaxy S20+ 5G in the wild, he's also dropping nitty-gritty details regarding specs and software. Among the most ridiculous numbers revealed so far is the fact that the higher-end Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will come in a version with a frankly absurd 16GB of RAM — that's probably more than your laptop.

New rumor says there will only be one Pixel 4a variant, no XL version this year

The Pixel 4a rumor mill is picking up some current after last week's OnLeaks renderpalooza. YouTuber Dave Lee, also known as Dave2D, has posted unattributed claims about the upcoming series of budget phones — including word that the 4a may not even be a series, but a singular model.

Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite and S10 Lite roundup: Release date, prices, renders, features, and more

The last few years have seen Samsung (and other) flagships inch closer to the $1000 mark, virtually vacating the $600-700 segment where devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro and iPhone XR mushroomed. These flag-bearers of the affordable flagship category soon garnered a rather widespread appeal, naturally leaving Samsung wanting a piece of the pie. Rumors say that the South Korean tech giant could be working on a pair of Lite models — the Galaxy Note10 Lite and the S10 Lite — that will possibly strike the right balance between premium features and affordability.
