The Galaxy S20 features a 6.2-inch AMOLED display, the Galaxy S20+ features a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra features a 6.9-inch AMOLED display.

The Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra work with both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G networks, while the Galaxy S20 is limited to sub-6GHz 5G connectivity. mmWave is the fastest 5G, but will be limited to major urban areas, while the slower sub-6GHz network will be more widespread.

The Galaxy S20+ features the same cameras, along with a fourth "Depth Vision" camera, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra has a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, a 108-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera, along with the Depth Vision Camera.

Samsung says all of the cameras in the new smartphones are able to let in more light for better images in poor lighting conditions, and the S20 Ultra can shift dynamically between a 108-megapixel mode and a 12-megapixel mode.

All three smartphones feature "Space Zoom" that allows users to zoom in up to 30x on the Galaxy S20 and S20+, while the S20 Ultra has 10x lossless zoom for a total of 100x zoom.

A "Single Take" feature lets the Galaxy S20 smartphones take a number of photos and videos at once, like live focus, cropped, ultra wide, and more, and then use AI to recommend the best shot of the bunch.

The new smartphones support 8K video shooting with "Super Steady" and anti-rolling stabilization features. There are also 10-megapixel front-facing camera setups on each of the new smartphones.

The Galaxy Buds+ are Samsung's latest AirPods competitor, featuring a two-way speaker for improved sound, three microphones, longer 11-hour battery life, and improved connectivity.

Except that it does.
no. no it doesn't. you're simply splitting the sensor into smaller chunks which means each pixel gets less light. this results in each pixel being less accurate.
