In the past few days, plenty of details on the Samsung Galaxy S20+ have been leaked by Max Winebach of XDA Developers. Earlier this week, he had shared leaked shots of the Galaxy S20+ 5G smartphone. He used Device Info app to reveal key information such as cameras features, display details and more. Today, he has also shared a leaked hands-on video of the Galaxy S20+ 5G smartphone.
Galaxy S20+ hands-on video
The leaked hands-on video of the Galaxy S20+ showcases its punch-hole display and its rectanglular camera module on the rear that houses four cameras, a microphone hole for better audio quality and an LED flash. There is a slight change in the placement of the buttons on the edges of the device.
The Galaxy S20+ has a volume rocker and a power key on its right edge. There is no Bixby AI assistant button, and it lacks a 3.5mm audio jack. The Bixby assistant could be made available through a long press feature on the power button. The retail package of the S20+ is expected to include USB-C AKG earbuds and a 25W fast charger.
Galaxy S20+ display
The Device Info app has revealed that the display of the Galaxy S20+ 5G supports a maximum resolution of 1,440 x 3,200 pixels and a tall aspect ratio of 20:9. The below image reveals that the Galaxy S20+ is bigger phone than the Galaxy S10+. Rumours suggest that the Galaxy S20+ has a 6.7-inch screen. The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will be a larger device than the S20+, as it is expected to house a 6.9-inch display.
The Galaxy S20+ supports 120Hz refresh rate only when the display produces full HD+ resolution. If the resolution is changed to WQHD+, the refresh rate automatically comes down to 60Hz. Some rumours had claimed that Samsung may ditch the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner on the S20 series. Instead of this, the company was speculated to make use of an optical in-display fingerprint sensor that illuminates the scanning area when pressed. Weinbach claimed that the fingerprint scanning area of S20+’s display does not illuminate, which indicates that it is equipped with an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor.
