Samsung lifted the lid on its latest line-up of flagship smartphones last week with the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra joining the new bendable Galaxy Z Flip.

This year’s launch is significant as all of the S20 series models will support ultrafast 5G mobile but the step up does come with the caveat of a higher retail price compared to last year’s S10 series.

The standard Galaxy 20 is slightly slimmer and taller than the S10 with its 6.2-inch Quad HD+ OLED display, which is also HDR1-+ certified and supports a 120Hz refresh rate.

The bulkier rear now houses three cameras and a new Space Zoom, while the internals feature 8GB or 12GB of RAM memory, 128GB storage and a 4,000mAH battery.

The Galaxy S20+ ups the ante with a 6.7-inch display, additional depth sensor for 3D photography, 12GB of RAM as standard, a larger 4,500mAH battery and either 128GB or 512GB storage.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is more powerful still with top of the line specs including a 6.9-inch display, a higher 108MP resolution camera lens, 5,000mAh battery and the option of up to 16GB RAM.

The 5G capable S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra will retail from £899, £999 and £1,119 when the smartphones go on sale in the UK on the 13th March.

Samsung also unveiled the 4G Galaxy Z Flip with an ultra-thin glass screen which is claimed to have solved the crease issues that plagued the previous model.

The Flip, which features a 6.7-inch main display, smaller 1.06-inch front screen, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, is available to pre-order for £1,300.
