The Samsung Galaxy S20 + is already in pre-sale and will hit stores in the coming days. So some users who want to opt for a high-end mobile from the Korean manufacturer may have a doubt: do I buy the Samsung Galaxy S10 + now that it is cheaper or do I throw the house out the window and order the Samsung Galaxy S20 +? It is a more than reasonable doubt and on which we want to put some light. That is why we have compiled 5 features of the Samsung Galaxy S20 + that we will not find in the Samsung Galaxy S10 + .
64 megapixel telephoto lens
As every year, the photographic section is one of the keys to high-end models. Thus, the Samsung Galaxy S20 + arrives with news compared to last year's model.
The most striking thing is that the S20 + has a telephoto lens of no less than 64 megapixels , with f / 2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. In comparison, the S10 + features a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, f / 2.4 aperture, and optical stabilization. That is, we have a sensor with a much higher resolution and with a better aperture.
The photographic set of the Samsung Galaxy S20 + is completed with a 12-megapixel Ultra Wide Angle and f / 2.2 aperture, as well as a 12-megapixel wide-angle with f / 1.8 aperture . As for the S10 +, it has a 12-megapixel wide angle with variable aperture f / 1.5-2.4, as well as a 16-megapixel Ultra Wide Angle with f / 2.2 aperture.
We also have changes in the front camera, although curiously this time it is to lose one of the sensors. The Samsung Galaxy S20 + has a single front camera , with a 10 megapixel sensor and f / 2.2 aperture.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 + , however, has a dual system on the front . Specifically, it equips a 10 megapixel sensor with f / 1.9 aperture, which is accompanied by a depth sensor with 8 megapixel resolution and f / 2.2.
Bigger screen with new features
The Samsung Galaxy S20 + takes a leap in size and quality if we talk about the screen. It is equipped with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel , thus increasing the 6.4-inch of the S10 +.
But perhaps the most interesting thing, beyond the increase in size, is that the S20 + screen has a 120 Hz refresh rate . In addition, it is an HDR10 + certified display , so it is ready to play content with dynamic HDR.
On paper, greater autonomy
Another improvement that we find in the Galaxy S20 + compared to the S10 + is its battery. The new model has a 4,500 mAh battery, compared to 4,100 mAh in the Samsung Galaxy S10 + .
On the other hand, both models have fast charging, wireless charging and reverse charging. We'll have to wait to see if it's a faster charge than last year's model.
If you are thinking of buying the Samsung Galaxy S20 +, you may be doing it with the intention of keeping it for several years. So it is very interesting to know that the new model of the Korean manufacturer has a 5G modem installed . At least if we choose to buy this clear model, because it has an extra cost over the normal S20 +.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 +, however, does not have this option. And is that if we want a model from last year with 5G connectivity we will have to resort to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
Finally, it is worth noting that if we opt for the Samsung Galaxy S20 + we can record video with 8K resolution , something that we do not have in the S10 +.
In addition, the 2020 model has some new features related to this new option. For example, with the 8K VIDEO SNAP function we can extract 33 megapixel still images directly from 8K video. On the other hand we have the Single Take function , which is essentially the enhanced burst mode. Thanks to the AI system, we can capture up to 10 seconds and recover a variety of formats, which means that we can choose the best image style without having to shoot again.
And these are the 5 most important things that you will find in the Samsung Galaxy S20 + that the S10 + does not have . Of course there are some more, such as the slight design change or the new Exynos 990 processor. Are they enough to opt for the new model? That will have to be decided by each.
