All of the Galaxy S20 series has a single camera on the front, completing the design of the Bezelless smartphone, but it doesn't necessarily give up performance and functionality. The S20 Ultra is equipped with a 40MP camera lens to give it an "Ultra" look.

The differences in the camera amongst the Galaxy S20 series is in the rear. The S20 has a rear triple camera, while the S20+ and S20 Ultra have quad cameras. In addition, DepthVision cameras measure the distance between the camera and the object to help sharpen portraits and AR (augmented reality).

The vast display featured in the Galaxy S20 series has the same resolution as the Quad HD + 3200 x 1440, although models vary in size. The 120 Hz refresh rate of the Galaxy S20 series operates in Full HD + 2400 x 1080 mode, while the Quad HD + 3200 x 1440 resolution runs at 60 Hz.

Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ support up to 3x Hybrid optical zoom and up to 30x Super Resolution Digital Zoom, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra offers 10x Hybrid optical zoom and 100x Super Resolution Digital Zoom. Although it is true that digital zoom is not used in real life due to image quality deterioration problem, it is obvious that the 100x Super Resolution Digital Zoom shows a clear difference from other products.

Brighter, clearer Night mode

The new Galaxy S20 Series also enables the ability to capture bright and vivid picture even in low-light conditions. Larger sensor size allows for more light at night. 

Night mode and HDR (High Dynamic Range) even allow you to get the right brightness and darkness. The pictures taken in night mode are captured more clearly and brightly.
