The Samsung Galaxy S20 series launches in just two days, we
already know most of the specs, so it is just waiting for confirmation on everything
There have now been two separate price leaks for UK models.
The first was nearly a week ago from Max Weinbench and the latest from WinFuture.
What I found was interesting is the inclusion of two 4G
models. For people not planning on using 5G any time soon, this is probably a
welcome addition saving you a few quid. However, as usual, Samsung will launch
the phones using two different chipsets depending on where you live.
With the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, when it launched, it was claimed that it must use the 5G X55 modem.
When Samsung launched the Exynos 990 they also talked about the 5G Exynos Modem 5123 which is a complete multi-band solution supporting everything from 2G to 5G sub-6 as well as mmWave. They didn’t specifically state that the Exynos 990 will only use the Exynos Modem 5123 so it looks like they may use this for their 4G models.
The other possibility is that Samsung use a 5G modem but
disable the 5G functionality.
With that said, if you ant one of the latest Samsung Galaxy
phones, you will be paying anything from £800 all the way up to £1,145 for the Samsung
Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is claimed to cost just £1,300, which may seem extortionate but it will apparently launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, three rear cameras – two 13MP and a 16MP cameras – and an impressive 4500mAh battery. In comparison, the similarly priced Motorola Razr uses a much slow chipset, the Snapdragon 710,
European pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S20 phones will come with a free pair of Galaxy Buds+ which have an RRP of around £150
