The phone is also one of the most powerful devices in the market right now. Depending on the region of purchase, the phone would either support a 5G enabled Snapdragon 865 or Exynos 990 chipset. However, what makes it truly powerful is the fact that it is the first device to come with 16GB of RAM. The phone also gets up to 512GB of storage that can be further expanded using a MicroSD card.
The phone also features the biggest battery on an S series phone to date. As per the spec sheet, the device gets a 5000mAh battery to keep the lights on.

108-megapixel camera and 100X Space Zoom
The cameras are also a major highlight of the device. The selfie snapper in the centered punch-hole is a 40-megapixel lens supporting 4K 60 fps video.
