LONDON, UK – March 13, 2020 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd has announced its new flagship Galaxy S20 Series is now on general sale and available to purchase through Samsung channels and all major UK retail and operator partners.
The impressive new series of flagship devices revolutionise the way we capture and experience the world. The Flagship Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultrarange introduces a brand-new camera architecture that combines AI with Samsung’s largest image sensor yet for stunning image quality.
Beyond camera, the Galaxy S20 makes the experience of everything we love to do with our phones easier and better—enjoy personalised music for every moment of the day, watch videos the way they are meant to be seen, play console-style games on-the-go and control new mobile experiences with the power of 5G.

With the S20 range, we have again delivered against this, showcasing the future of photography in the palm of your hand for those who love to capture and share the world around them”.
“For Samsung, 2020 marks a new decade for the Galaxy range. This year we continue our focus on 5G, which is enabled across the entire S20 range. We’re also giving our customers more choice, with three devices – S20, S20+ 5G and the ground breaking S20 Ultra 5G. For existing Galaxy customers and those looking to switch to a smartphone with the very latest revolutionary camera and 5G technology, there has never been a better time to trade-in and upgrade. We can’t wait to hear our customer’s feedback.”
Changing how we capture
Designed for the way we live, the Galaxy S20 introduces an entirely new camera system—powered by AI and with our biggest image sensor yet—to bring out the best in every image and every moment.
- Groundbreaking zoom capability: The Galaxy S20 introduces Space Zoom technology, which uses a combination of Hybrid Optic Zoom and Super Resolution Zoom and includes AI-powered digital zoom. Even when you are far away you can zoom in close, and use up to 30x zoom on the Galaxy S20 and S20+ 5G. You can even step-up to the revolutionary folded lenses on the S20 Ultra 5G, which uses AI powered, multi-image processing to reduce quality loss at high zoom levels so that you can experience Super Resolution Zoom up to 100x with a clearer view than ever before.
- Details in stunning clarity: With a larger image sensor available on the Galaxy S20 Series, camera resolution is significantly increased, for more detailed images with added flexibility for editing, cropping, and zooming. The S20 and S20+ 5G have 64MP cameras. The S20 Ultra 5G has a 108MP camera. Another benefit is that the larger sensors take in more light, so you get rich image quality even in low light situations. The S20 Ultra 5G takes things a step further with the option to shift dynamically between a high resolution 108MP mode and a 12MP mode, thanks to nano-binning technology which combines nine pixels into one at the sensor level.
- Single Take, multiple possibilities: Single Take lets you stay in the moment, while you capture the moment. Thanks to its AI camera technologies, the Galaxy S20 can capture a number of photos and videos, such as Live focus, cropped and Ultra-Wide to best capture your moment.
- Pro-Grade filming capability: The Galaxy S20 offers stunning 8K video shooting, so users can capture their world in true-to-life colour and quality. When you are done shooting, stream your video to a Samsung QLED 8K TV and enjoy its best-in-class viewing experienceor grab a still from an 8K video and turn it into a high-res photo. Furthermore, even the bumpiest videos look like they were shot using an action cam, thanks to Super Steady and its anti-rolling stabilisation and AI motion analysis.

And to harness this new generation of connectivity, every device in the Galaxy S20 Series—the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ 5G and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G—comes equipped with the latest 5G technology.
