There was a lot to love about the new Galaxy series when Samsung dropped its S20 trio earlier this year: Gorgeous 120Hz AMOLED displays, long-lasting batteries, and sophisticated camera systems to please all levels of photographers. With today's special deal, you can now save $200 on a brand new factory unlocked Galaxy S20, S20+, and even the exorbitant S20 Ultra at Amazon, Best Buy, and Samsung's website.

As a long-term Samsung user, I've witnessed first-hand the Hollywood-style comeback Samsung has made in terms of how its phones get updates. Gone are the days of waiting almost a year for significant version changes, or being several months behind on security patches. Not only have Samsung devices been receiving updates faster than ever before, in some cases, Samsung has even beaten Google to the punch. It's now done so again, with Samsung starting its rollout of May's security patch for the S20 series.
Ever since the launch of the Galaxy S10 last year, developers have had a whale of a time making fun and exciting apps for the camera cutout. One of my favorites is Energy Ring, an app that, as the name implies, puts a ring around the hole-punch to represent your battery level. Due to the different display sizes and aspect ratios, the developer released a separate version of the app for the Note 10 series, and has now done the same for the S20 range.
A premium smartphone demands an equally capable network. The new Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G and Sprint's True Mobile 5G service were made to compliment one another, weaving the best hardware and connection speeds into an undeniably powerful package. For a limited time, you can pick up a brand new Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G on Sprint for just $16.67/mo.
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.
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 publishedyet 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.
