Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

Most manufacturers will split their flagship phone families into the more affordable – relatively speaking – entry level models, and then the truly aspirational and often expensive actual hero flagship models.

That's precisely what the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is. It's Samsung's first flagship device for 2020 with all the trimmings, including a heavy duty camera, high battery capacity and more.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra was unveiled at Samsung's "Galaxy Unpacked" event on the 11th of February, alongside the smaller Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 handsets. It's the flagship phone of Samsung's Galaxy S range for 2020.

If you're wondering why it isn't the Galaxy S11, given that 2019's phones were Galaxy S10 models, it's basically just a marketing move, because Galaxy S20 sounds more advanced, and that's almost certainly the line that Samsung is going to take on it.

Design

  • 6.9 inch 20:9 ratio display
  • Central "Infinity O" camera at the front

Camera

  • 108MP primary sensor at the back
  • Up to 100x digital zoom

Performance

  • Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990
  • 5G only with mmWave support

Battery life

  • 5,000mAh battery
  • Fast 45W cable charging

Early outlook

  • A serious phone at a serious price

Pricing and availability

  • Available to pre-order from 12 February 2020 and on sale from 6 March 2020
  • Pricing starting from $1,999

Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S20 Ultra at its Galaxy Unpacked event on 11 February in San Francisco, which equated out to early on 12 February 2020 in Australia. That's the same date that it went on pre-sale, with actual availability from 6 March 2020.

As its absolute flagship handset, it's not exactly surprising that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is a pricey handset. The entry level model ships with 12GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, and that will cost you $1,999 outright. If you want the top tier model with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage, that will cost you a hefty $2,249 outright.
