With all the talk and anticipation surrounding rolling out the new 5G network, it appears that 2020 is the year it will finally come to fruition. If you are hoping to take advantage of the dynamic 5G network as soon as possible, you will need to have the right device to access the fifth generation wireless network.
The 5G network is a stand alone platform which means that most 4G devices will not be compatible with its infrastructure. However, there are already short lists of smartphones that are 5G ready, and the Samsung Galaxy S20 series is at the top of the list.
TELUS dealers all across the country are offering the most recent and powerful smartphones available on the market today. They provide a range of versatile service plans for the average consumer, business professionals, and owners and managers looking to equip their staff with the latest technology.
Amongst these top of the line devices is the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, designed for use with 5G networks. This series includes 3 devices, the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G, the S20 5G+, and the S20 5G Ultra.
Samsung Galaxy S20 5G
The most basic of the 3 exceptional new devices, is by no means basic by smartphone standards. It offers business users a wide array of features and functions to get more done in a day with better results.
Let’s take a look at some of the specs.
The Galaxy S20 5G features a 6.2” Infinity-O Display backed with sturdy Gorilla Glass 6. The dimensions of the device measure 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9mm, and it weighs in at 163 grams. It also offers 563 ppi, is HDR10+ certified, and has 120Hz refresh rate support.
The Samsung S20 series takes a step up in processing power, being the first android devices to provide users with the new and powerful Snapdragon 865 processor. Experts are reporting the Snapdragon 865 to be at the top of its class for power and performance.
A more powerful battery is another welcome addition to the S20 Galaxy series. The Samsung S20 comes equipped with a 4000mAh battery that is designed to give users all day operation without having to recharge.
One point of concern is all the other amazing new features on the S20 series that use more battery power to function. For example, the 120Hz refresh rate on the S20 is double the 60Hz refresh rate most phones offer. While this feature offers seamless transitions and scrolling power, it can also eat into your battery life more quickly.
The Samsung S20 has a built-in feature that helps manage usage to maximize battery performance, but if you are finding your battery is not lasting as long as you need it to, adjustments can be made. You can turn off the 120Hz refresh rate when not needed, switch power modes, turn off adaptive brightness, and employ other power management techniques.
The Galaxy S20 series is the first group of smartphones to be certified for USB Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 and Programmable Power Supply (PPS). The S20 can support charging power up to 25W, which means your smartphone can reach a full charge in no time.
RAM & Storage
Samsung S20 5G smartphones offer users a shocking 12 GB of RAM to accomplish tasks quickly and efficiently. Considering most laptops are fitted with 8GB of RAM or less, you never have to worry about not having enough working memory for your applications.
The S20 also comes standard with 128GB of internal storage, and can be expanded up to 1TB with the available MicroSD slot.
Another significant improvement in the S20 5G series is the new professional grade cameras on each of the devices. The S20 comes with:
- Front camera
- Single 10MP selfie camera
- Rear Cameras
- Triple camera system
- 12MP Ultra Wide Camera
- 12MP Wide-angle Camera
- 64MP Telephoto Camera
- Triple camera system
These high performance cameras are ideal for videographers, image sharing, and creating video content to promote your business.
All S20 smartphones offer enterprise grade security features to protect sensitive data, files, and images used for business. The extremely secure Knox platform offers real time monitoring and protection against viruses and malware, to help keep important information safe and private.
All three of the Samsung S20 series offer users some degree of 5G compatibility. The S20 provides basic 5G connectivity, but only the S20+ and the S20 Ultra will be compatible with ultra-fast mm Wave networks.
