In Samsung's mobile phone product line, S-Series and note series represent the company's top technology level in the first two half years and are also one of the most anticipated flagship products in the current Android camp.
This year's new generation s series has made some changes in the naming rules. Instead of using the way of increasing the number in turn, it has directly crossed S11, named Galaxy S20, like many domestic manufacturers, which is also the beginning of the next decade.
Overall product planning, the Galaxy S20 series and the previous Galaxy S10 series are basically the same, and also include three different models, the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20 Ultra, where we have a chat about the most special Galaxy S20 Ultra.
120Hz refresh rate hole digging screen
In order to pursue a higher screen share, manufacturers tried many different comprehensive screen solutions last year, such as the familiar water drop screen and lifting structure. In such an environment, Samsung "finally" no longer adheres to the set of design language used on the galaxy S8. For the first time, Samsung has adopted the design of a hole digging screen on its flagship product Galaxy S10 series.
Compared with other comprehensive screen solutions at this stage, the advantages of the hole digging screen are obvious. Its screen integrity is smaller than that of the water drop screen. At the same time, the weight and thickness of the fuselage can be better controlled because no additional mechanical structure is needed. This is particularly important for mobile phone products in 5g era.
Not surprisingly, the galaxy S20 is still designed with a hole digging screen. In terms of opening method, this time, it did not continue the previous generation's practice, but chose the same scheme as Galaxy note10 series. All three models are single opening, and the position was moved from the top right corner of the screen to the top right.
Although the official did not give specific data, in fact, by comparison, the opening aperture of Galaxy S20 ultra is slightly smaller than the millet 10 just released recently. However, the one UI is not as comprehensive as the MIUI in software adaptation. In some scenarios, the status bar is still widened. Fortunately, it is not obvious. Later, it is easy to solve this problem through system version update.
Of course, high refresh rate is the biggest highlight of the galaxy S20 ultra screen. This time, Samsung directly exceeded 90hz and adopted 120Hz screen refresh rate. In other words, even though many new mobile phones will be launched to the market later, as far as the screen refresh rate is concerned, it will still not be in the downwind.
As for the experience improvement brought by high refresh rate, I'm sure you know more or less about it. I won't elaborate here. As for the difference between 120Hz in practical application and 90hz, in theory, the former can bring better chirality, but in daily use scenarios such as microblogging or browsing the web, it is difficult for you to perceive.
However, the advantage of higher screen refresh rate is easy to show in the game. After the screen refresh rate is increased to 120Hz, it means that it can give full play to the performance of GPU, so as to output a smoother picture. In the future, with the improvement of ecological construction, the experience improvement brought by 120Hz is beyond 60Hz and 90hz.
For other specifications, the Galaxy S20 Ultra's screen size is 6.9 inches,3200x1440 resolution, has passed the HDR10 certification, the overall quality is needless to say, is still the industry's top level. In addition, its curvature is still very small, which can reduce the chance of false touch as much as possible, and also reduce the actual display area caused by the surface.
Galaxy S20 Ultra's screen fingerprint performance is somewhat "unexpected ", still using an ultrasound screen fingerprint scheme, but both the speed of unlocking and the accuracy of recognition are better than the previous generation of products, has been able to catch up or even exceed many mobile phones using optical screen fingerprints.
"Three star" stacking, powerful imaging capability
Turn over and look at the back of the fuselage. Starting with the Galaxy S10, the design language between the S series and the Note series is noticeably closer, the fuselage angular transition is no longer as rounded as before, and goes further to the Galaxy S20, and it's hard to distinguish it from the Galaxy Note10 at first glance, looking at the front alone.
But the difference between the back design of the two products is very obvious. This time, Samsung tried the same matrix design on its flagship model as last year's Galaxy m30s, but it has a larger area. With the left and right width as a reference, its rear camera matrix almost occupies half of the back cover area, which is the most special one among all mobile phones of the same design.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra is 166.9mm in length,76mm in width and 8.8mm in thickness, a lap bigger than the Galaxy S10 and a noticeable increase in weight to 220g, according to official figures. In terms of weight performance, it's really not light.
However, after "sacrificing" the weight and thickness, the benefits in terms of image capability are considerable. In terms of selfie, Galaxy S20 ultra is equipped with a 40 megapixel front camera with f2.2 aperture, which supports functions such as face unlocking, AI beauty selfie, real-time visualization, etc.
The rear camera features a four-shot design, with 100 million pixels and an F1.8 aperture that supports super-shake-proof; a wide-angle lens of 12 million pixels and an F2.2 aperture of 120
Although the Galaxy S20 Ultra's lead shot is 100 million pixels as Xiaomi 10, the sensor model is different, with the former carrying ISOCELL Bright HM1 and the latter an ISOCELL Bright HMX.
According to the official data, the single pixel size and sensor area of the two sensors are consistent. The biggest difference is that the isocell bright Hm1 is changed to nine in one based on the previous four in one pixel. In short, in non 108m mode, Galaxy S20 ultra's dark light shooting performance is better in theory.
The following is a real sample without any post-processing:
2 times zoom
10 times zoom
30 times zoom
The changes in the size of the number B9 are well reflected in the zoom capacity of the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
There are two points worth mentioning in this part. One is that its anti shake ability is really excellent this time, even if the zoom is 30 times, there is still no obvious jitter; in addition, when the zoom is more than 30 times After doubling, there will be a thumbnail similar to a map on the top left of the camera interface. You can use it to determine the location of the current focus, so as to better find the photographed object, which is more humanized.
Ultra wide angle
We mentioned ahead that it has a wide angle of 12 million pixels,120
Real time virtual
In addition to those we mentioned above, there is also a place that is not specifically mentioned by the official but has practical significance. Like Xiaomi 10, this Samsung Galaxy S20 ultra also introduces heif image format. Compared with the familiar JPG format, its advantage is to further compress the image size while ensuring the quality.
Friends who have read our Xiaomi 10 evaluation article should be impressed. During the test, we found that it does not support heif format in 108m mode (official said it will be OTA later). This situation does not appear in Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It supports the output of Heil format pictures in both standard mode and 108m mode.
Of course, by default it is the same as Xiaomi 10, the output image format is JPG, you can manually open or close in the camera settings interface according to their own needs. By the way, on the video side, it supports 8K video shooting and super anti-shake, and friends who usually like to use their mobile phones to shoot vlog should prefer it.
Xiaolong 865, lpddr5, ufs3.0, 45W fast charging
In terms of core hardware configuration, the samsung galaxy s20 ultra national version continues its traditional tradition of carrying the industry's top 865soc and x555g basebands, supporting both sa and nsa networking. 865 about the chip is also more familiar, here will not repeat.
The corresponding storage section, this time it provides 12GB 256GB as well as 16GB 512GB of two options, running memory specification for LPDDR5 and flash memory specification for UFS3.0. Of course, the same is true of WiFi 6 Galaxy S20 Ultra, already supported by the Galaxy Note 10.
As for the range of concerns, the Galaxy S20 Ultra has a battery capacity of 5000mAh and, like the Galaxy Note 10, supports 45W wired fast charging and 15W wireless charging. In addition, the reverse charging function is still not absent this time, may not be used frequently, but the use of emergency is still good.
Picture from Samsung official mall
It should be noted that although it supports 45W wired fast charging, only 25W power adapter is included with the device. To experience 45W fast charging, you need to buy extra. By the way, a 45W power adapter has been put on the shelves in Samsung's official mall before, with a price of 299 yuan. Interested friends can go to learn about it.
In summary, as the top flagship of Samsung in the first half of this year, Galaxy S20 ultra has achieved the current top level in core hardware configuration. In addition to the above mentioned, other things such as multi-functional NFC, dual speakers, IP68 level protection have also been followed up. Of course, the 3.5mm headphone interface will not come back.
Finally, under the relevant sales information,12 GB 256 GB and 16 GB 512 GB price of 9999 yuan and 11199 yuan respectively, will be officially sold on March 20. On the purchase proposal, we prefer the 12GB 256GB version, and the price is relatively reasonable on the premise of sufficient (Tuhao please ignore).
