Samsung has just announced its latest flagship line, the Galaxy S20 series, at the recent Unpacked 2020 event. As with Samsung’s previous Galaxy S phones, the S20 series is packed with lots of cutting-edge features; this year’s flagship lineup packs innovative cameras that can capture 8k resolution videos, as well as high-res displays with 120Hz refresh rates.

Similar to the S10 series last year, the S20 line consists of three phones. Instead of having a budget “e” version though, the S20 series has a new “Ultra” variant, meaning that the three phones in the lineup being the S20, S20+, and the S20 Ultra.
