Samsung Galaxy S20: Specifications Detailed

The Galaxy S series base variant is now simply called Galaxy S20 replacing the moniker “e” meant for the entry-level smartphone. The Galaxy S20 comes with a 6.2-inch Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED 2K display, with Quad HD+ resolution. The biggest update is the display now comes with a higher refresh rate of 120Hz.
