Specs Appeal: Samsung Galaxy S20 vs Galaxy S20+ vs Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G

Samsung today announced not one or two but three different Galaxy S20 models. That is if you don't consider the 4G models which otherwise makes the entire lineup even more confusing. Up until last year, the major differences between the various flagship Galaxy S models were in terms of display size and battery capacity.

However, the Galaxy S20 lineup is more complex than that, with there being quite a bit of difference between the three models. Below is an in-depth table showing the differences between the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

As evident from the table above, the Galaxy S20 Ultra is easily the best among the three different S20 variants. However, with a starting price tag of $1,400 + taxes, it is also an equally expensive phone. For most consumers though, the regular Galaxy S20 or S20+ is going to be more than good enough for daily use. These two variants also feature an improved camera system, can record 8K videos, and offer 5G.

The Galaxy S20 lineup will go on pre-order from February 21 and hit the retail stores on March 6th.
