The Samsung Galaxy S20 reportedly appeared on the benchmark portal Geekbench a few days after the Galaxy S20 + was spotted on the same source. Benchmark listings of upcoming Samsung phones suggest that 12GB of RAM will be the minimum option in the new lineup which is projected to be the high-end model of the Galaxy S20 + and Galaxy S20 Ultra in addition to the Galaxy S20. Separately, a video comparing the Galaxy S20 dummy indicates the size differences of the three new flagships.
According to the benchmark listing on the Geekbench site, which has an upload date of January 16, the Samsung phone model number is SM-G981U. This seems to be the North American 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy S20. The listing shows that the phone runs Android 10 and is powered by a Qualcomm SoC, paired with 12GB of RAM.
The latest benchmark listings reveal nothing new. However, as stated by Sammobile, this suggests that the 12GB RAM lineup will have a minimal option as most base model flagship phones become benchmarks before launch.
That being said, you can expect a toned down, 8GB RAM option for the LTE variants of the Galaxy S20 for me which will arrive in markets like India.
In addition to the listing on the Geekbench site, a video by XDA Developers has been released on YouTube claiming to showcase 3D-printed Samsung Galaxy S20 dummies based on data obtained from a case maker. The video shows the design level differences that will come on the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 + and Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The Galaxy S20, according to the video, is unlikely to have a 6.1-inch display in the size of the Galaxy S10 with a 6.2 or 6.3-inch display. This may be due to a longer aspect ratio. Also, you can build a narrower build on what you get on the Samsung Galaxy S10.
If we look at the Samsung Galaxy S20 + dummy shown in the video, it looks slightly longer than the Samsung Galaxy S10 +. However, while the Galaxy S10 + has a 6.4-inch display, the Galaxy S20 + is rumored to sport a 6.7-inch panel.
On behalf of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, speculated to be the successor to the Galaxy S 10+, the video suggests that you’ll get a longer design than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. Rounded edges on the phone even though help make it a favorable choice for one-handed operation.
