Max Weinbach, editor of themedia XDA-Developers, once again shared video and pictures of the Galaxy S20 Plus’s hands on the phone in the galaxy’s S20 Plus camera size and some of the new camera modes that were revealed yesterday. In addition, in the article, it has been confirmed that the Galaxy S20 plus supports a refresh rate of 120Hz, and continues to use the ultrasonic under-screen fingerprint sensor.
First of all, on the screen side, the Screen width ratio of the Galaxy S20 Plus is 20:9, so the screen resolution is 3200 x 1400, but it is not yet possible to accurately screen size/diagonal length.
Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor
In previous rumours, Samsung is expected to abandon its ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy S20 series and switch to an optical underscreen fingerprint sensor, or rely entirely on facial recognition technology. However, the XDA’s Real Machine report says this is not true, and the Galaxy S20 Plus is still equipped with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.
The external media XDA confirms that it is an ultrasonic under-screen fingerprint sensor, not an optical under-screen fingerprint sensor, by checking whether the scanning area is lit up. Because this is the main visual difference between the two, it is also the easiest way to distinguish between the two techniques. When using an optical fingerprint scanner, the scanner area on the display is lit up brightly, while the ultrasonic sensor works without light. The Galaxy S20 Plus does not illuminate the fingerprint area (except for the normal brightness level of the display), which can essentially determine the ultrasonic sensor.
It follows news that the Samsung flagship will use Qualcomm’s latest 3D Sonic Mac ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. However, themedia XDA was unable to confirm this particular detail and did not find the relevant settings for scanning both fingerprints at the same time (an important feature of the new sensor), which remains to be seen.
Support for 120Hz refresh rate
In addition, the new system screenshot has confirmed the screen support 120Hz refresh rate. This makes the S20 the first Samsung phone to refresh at a refresh rate above 60Hz. It’s good to see Samsung, the world’s largest display OLED maker, embrace the high refresh rate trend for smartphones.
Previously, users reported that only in the FHD-plus resolution to promote 120Hz, after the external media XDA test, found that only in FHD-plus display mode can be carried out at a refresh rate of 120Hz. In the Settings app, there is a clear prompt, “WQHD plus does not support high refresh rates, and your screen will be adjusted to the standard refresh rate”.
The Galaxy S20 Plus is the first flagship product of the Galaxy S series without headphones. In addition, XDA learned from reliable sources that an AKG USB Type-C earbud will be included in the packaging of the Galaxy S20 Plus. They can also confirm that the Galaxy S20 Plus will come with a Super Fast charger in the box. The Galaxy S20 Plus will use the same system as the Note 10 to support 25W fast charging.
The Galaxy S20 Plus is a large device that is much higher than the Galaxy S10. In the following image, the S20 plus and S10 plus are shown side-by-side. You can easily see how big the S20 plus is compared to.
According to the device information page, the Galaxy S20 plus has 11GB of memory and should be 12GB at marketing time. Samsung is said to be using the LPDDR5RAM supported by Qualcomm’s SnapSnapdragon 865 memory controller. The S20 Plus will also be equipped with 128GB (approximately UFS 3.0) storage space, rated at 4,500 mAh and a typical capacity of 4,370 mAh.
