The Galaxy S20 eschews secure face unlock for yet another in-display fingerprint reader

The Galaxy S20 eschews secure face unlock for yet another in-display fingerprint reader

It's unsurprising, given the leaks, but it's worth pointing out: Samsung again went with an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. For phones which start at $1,000 (and reach quite a bit higher), it's surprising that Samsung wouldn't try to compete with Apple and Google now that Android has good support for secure face unlock systems. We knock Google's hardware for a lot of things, but the company's face unlock on the Pixel 4 isn't one of them, and if anyone would try to ape Apple, we would assume it would be Samsung. And yet the Galaxy S20 phones are sticking with an in-display fingerprint reader.

Here's what every camera on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra does

Here's what every camera on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra does

Samsung's latest and greatest takes flagship smartphone pricing to another level, but at least the $1,400 Galaxy S20 Ultra supposedly promises some of the most dramatic camera improvements the series has seen in recent years. It features a quad-camera system that includes a 108MP main sensor (f/1.8), 12MP ultra-wide (120˚, f/2.2), 48MP telephoto (f/3.5), and a depth sensor thrown in for good measure. On the front, there's a 40MP selfie cam (80˚, f/2.2). Let's take a look at what this pricey camera array is capable of.

The Galaxy S20 family is insanely expensive—here are our first impressions

The Galaxy S20 family is insanely expensive—here are our first impressions

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?

Galaxy S20 is official with three variants, 5G across the board, and $1,000+ price tags

Samsung used to introduce its Galaxy S flagship series during MWC, but it has long since moved the unveiling to a separate event prior to the trade show. After months of leaks and a very revealing Galaxy Z Flip ad during the Oscars, Samsung has finally taken the wraps off its Galaxy S20 series consisting of the Galaxy S20, the S20+, and the S20 Ultra. Yes, the company is skipping S11 through S19 to pull even with the current year, which could make it easier to remember when which series was released in the future.

Galaxy S20 Ultra flaunts its massive camera bump in first real-world photos (Update: More pics and official video)

Galaxy S20 Ultra flaunts its massive camera bump in first real-world photos (Update: More pics and official video)

Last year, all smartphone manufacturers got into a single room and elected a unified rear-facing camera design for smartphones: a rectangular bump on the top left. That's the only logical explanation for the slew of similar-looking devices we've seen in recent months, be it the iPhone 11, Pixel 4, Galaxy Note10 and S10 Lite, or others. We've known for a while that Samsung's upcoming flagships will follow the same trend and now we're getting further proof thanks to real-life images of the S20 Ultra and S20+.
