Galaxy S20+ leaks again, this time in hands-on video

If you liked what you saw of that Galaxy S20+ that leaked a couple of days ago, there’s more where that came from.

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ has leaked out again, including an appearance in a brief hands-on video. Thanks to the video from XDA-Developers, we get a glimpse of the S20+ with its display turned on as well as the back of the phone and its sides.

A photo has also surfaced that shows the Galaxy S20+ next to the Galaxy S10+, and the Galaxy S20+ is noticeably taller. For reference, the Galaxy S10+ has a 6.4-inch screen and measures 157.6 x 74.1 x 7.8mm.


As for the Galaxy S20+, today’s leak confirms that it has a display resolution of 3200×1440 and a 20:9 aspect ratio. There’s no concrete info on the screen size, but rumors say it could be a 6.9-inch display.

An ultrasonic fingerprint reader is built into the display. The leak also confirms that the Galaxy S20+ will support a 120Hz refresh rate, making it the first Samsung phone to offer a refresh rate higher than 60Hz. A higher refresh rate helps to make animations and scrolling look smoother. The bad news is that you’ll only be able to use that 120Hz refresh rate at FHD+ resolution. The WQHD+ resolution doesn’t support 120Hz, meaning you’ll be bumped back down to 60Hz.


Other specs for this Galaxy S20+ include 12GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. The battery has a rated capacity of 4500mAh (typical capacity of 4370mAh), and there’s support for 25W fast charging to help you refill that battery more quickly.

Unfortunately, today’s leak confirms that Samsung is dropping the 3.5mm headphone jack with the Galaxy S20+. The headphone jack was still included with last year’s Galaxy S10 series phones, and Samsung was one of the last major smartphone makers still including that feature in their flagship phones. That’s changing with the Galaxy S20+, though. Samsung does include some AKG USB-C earbuds in the box in case.

Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy S20+ as well as the Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra on February 11th. Considering how frequently the phone has been leaking lately, though, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see it a bit more before that event. Based on what has leaked so far, are you looking forward to the Galaxy S20+ and Samsung’s other new Galaxy S flagships?

    The back of that phone is horrifying…nightmare fuel.

      You must be one of those people who is constantly staring at the back of their phone.

      • Francisco Peña

        doesn’t know how to do a selfie and so holds the phone with the front facing camera towards tehir face. Probably whines why they can’t see the screen at the same time.

        How are you going to avoid it? It’s all camera!

  • Ryan Loftus

    I’m due for an upgrade but definitely wont get one if they don’t offer the ultra in a flat screen. I will never own curved screen again, I’d rather have oldschool flip phone

      I prefer a flat screen as well, especially with the Note series. Since you can’t write on the curved edge, it limits your the ability to write on an already narrowed screen.

    As far as having SD card ability.

    Will the S20 series of phones have removable memory? Or will this be an option only on higher end models?

    I thought the new Iphone camera was odd looking,this is even more odd looking. Since everyone is fellowing apple,I wonder what would happen if Apple put back the headphone jack,removable battery,full size sim card?

  • Nate595

    Might have to consider the S20e if I have to drop the resolution to 1080p anyways for the high refresh…

  • the martian ambassador

    These are looking good but perfectly happy with the Note 9 for now. I won’t be upgrading until they completely eliminate the camera hole punch on the screen. Probably another year or two.
