As February rolls around we can once again look forward to a new generation of Samsung Galaxy handsets. The successor to the S10 range, Samsung are set to launch their Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra with the eventual release touted to be in March.

We don’t know all the details just yet, but here’s what we’ve heard about the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus.

Availability and price

A year after the S10’s release, Samsung launched its S20 range on February 11 – and the phones are set to be released for sale on March 11 in the UK. The Galaxy S20 Plus will be the mid-range model, priced at around £999.

Design and display

Following the launch, we now know plenty about the S20 Plus design and display – here’s what’s on offer:

  • Ultra-thin bezels
  • A shift to the centre for the punch-hole camera
  • Colour options called ‘cosmic black’, ‘cosmic grey’ and ‘cloud blue’ respectively
  • The absence of the much-loved headphone jack

All phones in the S20 series have a 120Hz refresh rate, a huge increase from the S10’s 60Hz, though this will only be if you’ve set your display to Full HD+ – on WQHD+ it’ll be back to 60Hz.

The Galaxy S20 Plus display will be 6.7 inches across, with a resolution of 3,200x1440. Additionally, all three displays will share the same ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner.

Camera and features

Samsung doesn’t generally disappoint when it comes to smartphone cameras, and this year is no different with Samsung introducing some impressive improvements. Here’s what we’ve heard about the S20 Plus:

  • It shares a similar set up to the S20, in that they’ll both have a main 12MP lens, a 64MP telephoto lens, a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 10MP selfie-camera
  • However the S20 Plus rear camera also has a time-of-flight depth sensor, as does the S20 Ultra but not the flagship S20
  • The camera will also offer either 3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom
  • In terms of video you’ll be able to record in astounding 8K quality

The phone also offers a ‘Single Take’ feature that snaps a short video from different lenses with a single touch of a button.

All phones released in the UK with be 5G-equipped, but the Plus and Ultra have an extra bit of tech known as mmWave antennas, increasing the overall connection speeds even further.

Tech specs

Aside from the United States (and maybe Canada), which will be receiving a Snapdragon 865 chipset, most regions will make do with an upgraded Exynos processor in their S20 handsets.

Everyone will benefit from a huge – some might even say excessive – 12GB of RAM, while both the S20 and S20 Plus will offer 128GB of storage, with the option of adding further space through the microSD slot.

The battery capacity of all three models has improved, with the S10 Plus housing a 4,500mAh cell as well as 45W fast-charging and 15W wireless charging inherited from the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. They’ll also be IP68 waterproof and dust-resistant.
