The Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 108-megapixel camera has officially blown my mind
Samsung announced its flagship Galaxy S20 lineup earlier this week, and the dust is finally settling so we can all fully process everything the company announced. Strategically, we have no idea what the heck Samsung is thinking. The entry-level Galaxy S phone was Samsung’s best-selling model last year according to estimates, but the Galaxy S20 line completely abandons the “entry-level flagship” segment. In the US, Samsung’s new Galaxy S20 smartphones will start at $1,000 and climb all the way above $1,500 for a maxed-out Galaxy S20 Ultra. The company will continue to sell its Galaxy S10 phones with a $150 discount on each model, but last year’s phone is a tough sell when this year’s iPhone 11 starts at $699.
Moving beyond strategy, however, there’s really no question whatsoever that Samsung’s new Galaxy S20 lineup is made up of the three most impressive Android smartphones we have ever seen. They all feature bleeding-edge specs with an unprecedented minimum of 12GB of RAM that goes up to 16GB in the ultra-premium Galaxy S20 Ultra, and they all feature big, beautiful OLED displays atop stunning all-screen designs with hole-punch cameras. When it comes to the cameras, however, it’s not the front-facing hole-punch cameras that are the talk of the town right now. It’s the unrivaled 108-megapixel camera on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, and it has now officially blown my mind.
