Samsung is gearing up to launch the S20 series of smartphones alongside the wireless Galaxy Buds+. Evan Blass, a popular tipster, took to Twitter to reveal that the Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra 5G will ship with free Galaxy Buds+ for those who pre-order any of the two phones. The South Korean giant is likely to launch at least three handsets on February 11th, namely the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Plus and Ultra versions of Galaxy S20 have been speculated to launch without a 3.55m headphone jack. The phones have been leaked multiple times and recently, their renders and prices were spotted on the internet. On the other hand, the expected Galaxy Buds+ would come as a successor to the Galaxy Buds earphones.
Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Buds+ specifications
The Galaxy Buds+ are likely to sport a similar design to their predecessor. However, these wireless earphones are expected to skip the active noise cancellation feature that is available on its competitors. That being said, rumours are rife that these will feature support for aptX. In terms of battery backup, the earphones are speculated to play host to an 85mAh unit that is bigger than the Galaxy Buds. The call quality is also expected to be changed on the Galaxy Buds+.
The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G are speculated to house 6.2-inch, 6.7-inch and 6.9-inch S-AMOLED Infinity-O displays respectively with quad-HD+ resolution. A refresh rate of 120Hz and an in-display fingerprint sensor is also expected on all the devices. Performance-wise, they would rely on the Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 octa-core processor, depending on the market. The main difference will be in the optics department. While the Galaxy S20 could house a triple camera setup with 12MP + 64MP + 12MP sensors, the Plus version could house a quad-camera setup with a 3D ToF sensor added to the said configuration. The Galaxy S20 Ultra could play host to a periscope lens, a 108MP primary sensor, a 48MP telephoto lens, a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 3D ToF sensor. The phones are expected to feature 4,000mAh, 4,500mAh and 5,000mAh battery units, respectively and carry support for fast charging.
