But before the actual release of the smartphone, we got some serious leaks about the smartphone which reveals much about the design and specifications. We curated the list of all the leaks about the upcoming Galaxy S20 and will keep it updated with more future leaks.
Design and Form Factor
The Galaxy S20 is going to be similar to the last version in the design segment. The smartphone will have even lesser bezels around the display with the signature curved edges from Samsung. The smartphone will also inherit the punch hole camera design from the last year but it will be smaller according to the leaks.
When it comes to the form factor, Samsung is going to use the same form factor from the last year too except for the camera module. The camera module at the back is going to look like the one from the recently released Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite or Note 10 Lite. Samsung will make some minor changes in terms of the design and form factor according to the leaks.
Hardware and Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy S20 will be following the same tradition this year too; Snapdragon chipset for the US and Exynos for the rest. Since there was no chipset except for the Exynos 9825 on 7nm fabrication process, the S20 will be powered by this SoC with 5G connectivity. And for the US variant, Samsung will use the latest Snapdragon 865 chipset from Qualcomm.
When comes to other hardware specifications, an image has been leaked showing the RAM capacity to be 12GB. This may be a prototype but there is a possibility that we can get a variant with 12GB RAM or even more since Snapdragon 865 supports up to 16GB RAM.
