Galaxy S20 series features Samsung’s first dedicated data security chip

Our mobile operating systems are protected with adequate software-based security measures to keep the miscreants away, but there's always more that can be done.

Samsung is now joining them with its own version called Secure Element (SE) which the Galaxy S20 series already comes equipped with.

The Galaxy S20's fast charging isn't just quick, it's verifiably safer thanks to new certification

It's one thing to push a crazy amount of power to a device, it's entirely another to do it safely. Thankfully for those of you planning to get a Galaxy S20, the USB-IF has just rubber-stamped the whole Galaxy S20 series as "Fast Charger Certified." When plugged into similarly certified USB accessories and chargers, you can rest a little bit easier knowing that all those watts it's sucking down won't go terribly wrong.

The best microSD cards for your new Galaxy S20

There was some concern that the Galaxy S20 series might drop the microSD card, just as it dropped the much-loved headphone jack, but thankfully those rumors didn't pan out. All three variations of the S20 — the S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra — all come equipped with a slot for microSD cards. That means you can add up to 1TB of additional storage to any S20 device, giving you more space for apps, movies, photos, and other data.

Galaxy S20 vs S20+ vs S20 Ultra: What’s the difference?

Samsung’s Galaxy S line for 2020 appears to have undergone a significant reshuffle, apart from the fact that its name now matches the year. Taking cues from the iPhone 11 series, the base model no longer has a separate, visibly lower-end ‘e’ branding, but is simply called the Galaxy S20, nor is it a slouch anymore. The new entrant—the S20 Ultra—takes the experience a notch higher with (slightly) superior internals, sitting right above the Plus model. The ambitious trio of flagships universally commits itself to 5G connectivity in the US, ditching the 4G-only variants for good.

I've only had the S20 Ultra for a few hours, but I've already been playing around with these new cameras. Our full review will include an in-depth discussion of the camera performance, but here's the first batch of sample photos for you to obsess over.
