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.
