There are two things Samsung is known for when it comes to trading in phones for its latest flagships: You can run into some serious issues, but Samsung gives insane values in the name of making a sale. This trend looks set to hold true for the Galaxy S20, as well, with Samsung offering up to $700 on trade-ins, including $600 for dissatisfied Pixel 4 owners, and $300 for both the Pixel 3 and 3a series. That can get you a Galaxy S20 for as little as $300. Read More
While the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra come packed with support for the latest mmWave 5G connectivity here in the US, their smaller sibling, the Galaxy S20, doesn't. There are a couple reasons for that.
Speaking with Samsung at a briefing in San Francisco last week, I learned that the smallest of the S20 series to date simply proved too challenging a package for mmWave 5G to be placed in. Because mmWave 5G requires two discrete antenna modules around the frame of the device, it consumes a small but significant amount of space that must be designed into the phone from the get go in order to be accommodated.

The $1000 smartphone is no longer cause for sticker shock: meet the $1400 smartphone, your new "wow" benchmark. That's the price of Samsung's Galaxy S20 Ultra, the range-topping superphone Samsung hopes will one-up Apple in the ongoing battle for Crazy Expensive Phone dominance.
Samsung's other two S20s, the S20 and S20+, aren't cheap, either: the S20 will be $1000, and the S20+ comes in at a still-pretty-eye-watering $1200. Everything about these phones is super-sized: the prices, the rear camera clusters, the 5G support (more on that in a minute), the batteries, and really, the phones themselves. Let's start with that, shall we? Read More
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.

More Galaxy S20 details have leaked out today, including basic specs, screen details like 120Hz support (with limits), and even a short hands-on video. XDA's Max Weinbach has just published yet another treasure trove of leaks for Samsung's upcoming phones, joining those from the previous few days as he continues his quest to reveal everything about the Galaxy S20.

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.
