The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra are designed for modern-day explorers who want their phones to revolutionize the way they experience the world. 

The Galaxy S20 series is available for pre-order from March 5 and goes on sale from March 20. During the pre-order period[1], users can purchase the Galaxy S20 Ultra or Galaxy S20+ to receive a pair of free Galaxy Buds+ wireless earbuds valued at HKD1,298 and enjoy connected listening anytime, anywhere.

Improved Camera Captures Life’s Wonderful Moments

Photography is now a part of everyone's life. Mobile phones are the ideal companion to record daily moments or share experiences on social platforms. The groundbreaking camera improvements in the Galaxy S20 series satisfy every need, for both work and play.

- Space Zoom for perfect close-ups: Stand on a mountain overlooking natural scenery, watch a solar eclipse or a full moon: take photos to capture the spectacular sight, then relive the stunning experience later. The Galaxy S20 and S20+ enable up to 30X zoom. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is equipped with a revolutionary folded lens that uses AI powered, multi-image processing to allow Super Resolution Zoom up to 100X[2]. Zoom in to see amazing details even when a long distance away.

- Bright Night lights up your life: When taking photos in a low-light environment, such as at night or at a party, movement and noise can be a problem. The Galaxy S20 series introduces a low-light shooting feature, with a large image sensor to let inmore light. The pro-grade AI technology captures multiple photos at once, merging them into one stunning shot with less blur and noise. Night Mode allows for clear, high-quality pictures even in low-light environments, while Night Hyperlapse can help you create hyperlapse videos in the same conditions.

- Single Take makes it easy: Precious moments with children or pets can be fleeting. With revolutionary AI, Single Take lets you shoot for up to 10 seconds and get back a variety of formats with different filters – at most 10 photos and four videos, all in one go – and quickly and easily upload them to social media platforms, with no need to edit.

- 8K videography keeps it professional: With 8K video recording, the Galaxy S20 series lets you take professional microfilms or UHD videos with lifelike image quality and colors. Connect to Samsung QLED 8K TV[3] to enjoy a remarkable viewing experience. Use the 8K video snap function to capture a 33MP high-res still photo right from an 8K video.

- 108MP camera fulfils every need: When posting photos on social platforms, or sharing travel memories, every perfect detail needs to be on show. The Galaxy S20 series has a larger image sensor, which greatly improves resolution, making the picture quality clear and sharp. The Galaxy S20 series is equipped with powerful lenses, suitable for every type of scenery. Simply use the wide-angle lens to capture panoramic shots. The Galaxy S20+ and S20 come with a 12MP wide angle while the Galaxy S20 Ultra is up to 108MP, which allows more detailed images to be cropped and edited, or even printed out for collection. In addition, the Galaxy S20 Ultra has the strongest front camera in the series, with 40MP delivering more detailed pictures with pro-grade technology. Switch to the 10MP front camera when taking selfies in low-light environments. The Galaxy S20 Ultra and S20+ models are equipped with a TOF lens for richer image layers. 

HypeFast 5G Network: Unprecedented Speed

As Samsung’s first 5G smartphone launched in Hong Kong, the Galaxy S20 series supports Sub-6. The devices revolutionize communication, creating a unique high-speed network experience. With the 5G network, high-quality content is available at super fast speed. In just 30 seconds, a six-hour drama series can be downloaded. Information is communicated faster and more easily, improving productivity. 

The low latency brought by the 5G network makes for seamless connections. Video calls are uninterrupted for the very best experience with friends. Over 10 times lower latency also brings a smoother gaming experience.

The Galaxy S20 series can be expanded with a 1TB microSD card for even more storage – up to 1.5TB total[4], allowing more high-res videos and photos to be kept.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra, S20+ and S20 feature 6.9-inch, 6.7-inch and 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O Display respectively. The slimmest bezel is matched with centered in-display camera cutout to minimize distractions and provide a cinematic display experience. The display reduces blue light without affecting color quality for more comfortable viewing. In addition, the screen refresh rate is increased to a maximum of 120Hz[9], resulting in extremely smooth browsing and gaming. The accurate touch response with less lag also provides a more enjoyable gaming experience.

- Intuitive interface: The Galaxy S20 series adopts One UI 2, a simpler design that helps users to quickly navigate through all tasks and focus on what really matters. The new design is unique yet accessible. The built-in AI analysis system can classify photos into different categories, such as food, portrait or landscape, so they can be more quickly and easily located. 

Share Life’s Moments More Easily

The Galaxy S20 series introduces new features to enable the sharing of wonderful moments. When taking group photos or videos, turn on the new Quick Share function, then tap and share without pairing with up to five friends or family members nearby[10]. When travelling with friends, take turns as a DJ to drop the beat and share the latest popular songs via the Music Share function[11]. Add fun to road trips by pairing with friends’ devices to play music through the car’s audio system and speakers. The Galaxy S20 can also be used to control smart homes with Smart Things, achieve health and wellness goals with Samsung Health, pay on the go with Samsung Pay, and much more.[12]
