- Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is available at a starting price of Rs 92,999 in India
- The smartphone is the company's latest flagship
- It will go on sale starting today at 12pm
Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S20 series of smartphones in India, with the devices scheduled to start retail at 12pm today. The S20 series features three new devices -- Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Of the three, it's the Galaxy S20 Ultra which is the true flagship from Samsung for the year. The phone has been announced to start retail at Rs 92,999 and will be made available in two colours, Cosmic Grey and Cosmic Black, but will go on sale from March 24.
Samsung has also announced that those buying the Galaxy S20 Ultra can also get their hands on the Galaxy Buds+ at a promotional price of Rs 1,999. Here are five reasons why the Galaxy S20 Ultra makes for a good buy.
Being the latest flagship from Samsung, the Galaxy S20 Ultra also gets the fastest chipset available to the company right now. Depending on the region of purchase, the phone would either support a 5G enabled Snapdragon 865 or a 4G modem totting Exynos 990 chipset -- in India, it's the latter.
However, what makes it truly powerful is the fact that it is the first device to come with 16GBs of RAM. Although the 4G variant for India only gets 12GB RAM, it's still quite powerful for pretty much anything you throw at it. The phone also gets up to 512GB of storage that can be further expanded using a MicroSD card.
Among the major highlights of the Galaxy S20 Ultra is its massive display. The Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with the biggest display on a Galaxy S series device to date, as it sports a massive display that's 6.9-inches in size.
The display also supports a maximum resolution of 1440x3200 pixels and the Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED screen also boasts of a native 20:9 aspect ratio and a centered punch-hole.
Fast refresh rate
The Galaxy S20 Ultra's display isn't only the biggest ever for a Galaxy S series phone, it is also the fastest. The Galaxy S20 Ultra's panel is rated to refresh at high speeds that haven't been seen on Samsung smartphones before.
This is because the phone supports 120Hz refresh rate. This also makes it one of the fastest panels in the market, fit to take the challenge from flagships from other phone makers.
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.
However, it is the rear camera set-up that truly sets the phone apart from the crowd. The phone's rear module features a 108-megapixel primary lens sat next to a 48-megapixel telephoto, a 12-megapixel ultrawide, and a ToF lens. Interestingly, the telephoto lens is capable of up to 100x digital zoom.
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. This should make it a real battery beast when it comes to day to day usage. The phone also pairs the battery with super-fast 45W charging technology to help the big battery juice up in a short span of time.
