Samsung Galaxy S20 | S20 Plus | S20 Ultra Compared!

From what we understand, demo and review units are impossible to come by, but fortunately, we were given exclusive access to all three Galaxy S20 models, in all available colours.

This allowed us to produce this video for a quick look at all three models – the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20 Plus and the Galaxy S20 Ultra!


All three models are built around the same 7 nm system platform, which is either the Samsung Exynos 990, or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. So they should all be equally fast.


The 5G variants of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus come with 12 GB LPDDR5 memory, while the 4G models only have 8 GB.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with 12 GB LPDDR5 memory for the base models, and 16 GB for the top-of-the-line 512 GB model.


The Galaxy S20 is only available with 128 GB of storage, while the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra have storage options of 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB.

But all three come with a hybrid SIM tray, which supports a microSD card for additional storage.

Front Camera

Both the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus have a 10 MP front camera. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is a little special – it has a very high resolution 40 MP front camera.

Rear Cameras

The Galaxy S20 Ultra has a phenomenal new quad-camera system at the back, that is made up of :

  • a 108 MP main camera,
  • a 48 MP telephoto camera with 10X hybrid optical zoom,
  • a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, and
  • a DepthVision ToF camera

The mid-range Galaxy S20 Plus has a new quad-camera system as well, but with different cameras :

  • a 12 MP main camera,
  • a 64 MP telephoto camera with 3X hybrid optical zoom,
  • a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, and
  • a DepthVision ToF camera

Samsung dropped the DepthVision camera in the Galaxy S20, but the other 3 cameras are the same as the Galaxy S20 Plus.


The Galaxy S20 has a 4000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S20 Plus has a 4500 mAh battery, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra has the largest battery of them all – a 5,000 mAh battery.
