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.

If you've been wondering why the quality of Samsung's Unpacked live stream has been a bit iffy and at least partly mediocre, suffering from some strange colors and crushed shadows, the company may have just issued an explanation: It's filming the event from a Galaxy S20.

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.

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.

There were new features to be demonstrated, new designs to show off, and all the pomp and circumstance befitting the announcement of devices of this caliber.

Galaxy Note 10 tipped for Unpacked event on August 7

Samsung, as with anything or anyone else, has its ups and downs, but the swings and roundabouts this year have been vast: the bread-and-butter Galaxy S10 series has been selling at a decent clip, but the bleeding-edge Galaxy Fold was kept out of market due to engineering concerns. The company may be pinning its hopes on another upswing with the release of the Galaxy Note 10 and we now have a good idea of when that will happen.
