Display and Design Details
One confirmation coming through as far as the display is concerned is about the 2.5D curved glass. This is significant since Samsung had fitted the 3D glass in the last year’s Galaxy S series flagships. The curved glass on top of the display screen makes it difficult to fix the tempered glass screen protectors. Just taking a look at the renders, it is clear there is the Infinity-O display with the round hole punched in the center, on top. When you look at the rear panel, the rectangular camera bump with the three or four cameras and the flash, depending on which model you are looking at, are clearly visible.
The other aspect you notice is that Samsung has restricted the physical buttons to power on the device and to control the volume settings to the right side leaving the left edge free. This also means the dedicated Bixby button has been removed.
Pricing Details Revealed
Strangely, most reports on the expected prices of the Samsung Galaxy S20 models are carrying the prices in Euro rather than the US dollar though the official launch event is being held in the US in San Francisco. The latest reports say the Samsung Galaxy S20 will be priced at €899 ($993). If you buy the 5G variant of the same phone, the price would be €999 ($1,100). The Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G is predicted to start at $1,200 approximately.
Most other details that have appeared in previous leaks have surfaced again, including that the processor would be the Exynos 990, with an integrated 5G modem. Now, this again needs to be reviewed since Samsung launches its smartphones in the US and North American markets only with the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets.
