The Galaxy Reveal 20 range has, arguably, the most passionate smartphone fans in the world. So whereas Samsung’s all-original Galaxy S20, S20+ and essentially bonkers Galaxy S20 Ultra (details) are grabbing all the headlines apt now, Reveal fans know they may level-headed wait. And now the primary Galaxy Reveal 20 leaks have arrived, waiting makes a lot of sense. Right here is why.
Tip: this article will be regularly updated, so bookmark it (Updated 03/22 below)
Codename– the Galaxy Reveal 20 is codenamed “Project Canvas’ and here is a ample spoiler. While the Reveal range’s S Pen has already been great for taking notes (and fair lawful at drawing), this specificity of the codename strongly suggests a ample upgrade in 2020. Popular leaker Ice Universe has already revealed “original features” are coming, but anticipate this to be in both hardware and software. The Reveal range will change to the same ‘20’ branding as the S sequence (which had a massive camera overall to mark this original beginning) and for the Galaxy Reveal 20 it’s the S Pen getting the ample makeover.
03/21 Update: the Galaxy Reveal 20 is now official.XDA Builders‘ Max Weinbach has uncovered Samsung’s first squawk reference to the cell phone hidden inside the newly released kernel source for the Galaxy S20 line-up. The kernel also ties the instrument (again referenced as ‘Project Canvas’) to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset, as widely expected. Interestingly, the kernel also contains references to ‘Project Winner2’, the successor to the Galaxy Fold which (somewhat amusingly) was codenamed Project Winner and an unknown instrument, ‘Project Zodiac’. The veteran will also exhaust the Snapdragon 865 whereas the latter is have a Snapdragon 855 processor, very similar to Samsung’s other folding smartphone: the Galaxy Z Flip.
Design– The Galaxy Reveal 20 gadgets will mimic the Galaxy S20 design which, in flip, stole the centralised gap punch design from the Galaxy Reveal 10. In consequence, anticipate the Galaxy Reveal 20 gadgets to ogle very similar to the idea that renders in this article.
03/11 Update: acclaimed render artist Theory Creator has released astunningly detailed original video of the Galaxy Reveal 20based on all the leaks so far. It reveals that we can anticipate an evolution of the Reveal 10 design with a lot of influences from the Galaxy S20 line-up, including the almost bezel-less design, shrunken entrance camera (resulting in a smaller gap punch) and the adoption of the S20’s range’s massive original camera modules and rectangular scuttle. The most realistic draw back? The renders, in accurately portraying all the leaks so far, also reveal the Galaxy Reveal 20 with out a headphone jack. That port is now not coming back. Aside from this, the most straightforward inquire is whether or now not any Reveal 20 mannequin will sport the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s tremendous 108MP primary camera. As it stands, a Reveal 20 and Reveal 20+ are expected but it certainly is unknown if an Ultra mannequin will join the ranks or Samsung will distribute the cameras otherwise on the Reveal sequence. Watch this space.
Display– here we’re going to be able to get a step-up from the already superlative Galaxy S20 monitors. We all know this thanks to Samsung, which announced its original enhanced OLED displays have now entered mass production, meaning Galaxy S20 owners apt skipped over out. Samsung guarantees decrease strength consumption and diminished blue light in these panels, saying: “Our 5G-optimized OLED display is taking the lead in the 5G era with its crystal clear imagery, distinguished designs, economical strength consumption and increasingly eye-protecting functionality.” Sorry, S20 owners.
Camera– As Samsung has accomplished for several years, the original Galaxy Reveal lineup will exhaust the same camera modules as the Galaxy S20 gadgets. Given the severely buggy launch for this otherwise outstanding hardware, anticipate updates to the S20 range to mean the Galaxy Reveal 20 sequence has a distinguished smoother arrival out the gate. The most realistic inquire is whether or now not there will be a Galaxy Reveal 20 Ultra to exhaust the crazy 108MP camera in the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Performance– there have been no Galaxy Reveal 20 spec leaks but, but here is one area where we already know what will happen because it happens each year. The Galaxy Reveal 20 line-up will get the same Snapdragon 865 / Exynos 990 geographic split (US gets Snapdragon, everybody else gets Exynos) as the S20 line-up and 5G as standard. Though Samsung has already confirmed some original memory upgrades, the ample inquire is whether or now not will Samsung add a Galaxy Reveal 20 Ultra as smartly.
03/22 Update: popular Samsung insider Ice Universe has released a pair of tweets which deliver combined news for potential Galaxy Reveal 20 owners. Thefirstrubber stamps what we expected: that Samsung is now not going to significantly change the core specs of the Galaxy S20 for the Reveal 20 (RAM and storage aside) and this includes cameras, which means theS20’s greatest upgradesare making it over intact. The2dis more concerning, with Ice Universe using a sloth and cheetah to illustrate the variations between Samsung’s Exynos chipset and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Right here is already a such a area for S20 users thata petitionwas begun to stop Samsung using Exynos chips in future phones, but Ice says this seems to be now not going andwarnsSamsung to change track or “this can severely damage some customers”.
03/19 Update: Galaxy Reveal 20 owners can ogle forward to another ample upgrade over the Galaxy S20 range after Samsungconfirmedmass production has begun of its subsequent-gen eUFS 3.1 storage. Samsung states that it has balllistically fast sequential write speeds of over 1,200MB per 2d. Samsung says here is a 3x upgrade compared to the eUFS 3.0 memory inside the Galaxy Reveal 10 and Galaxy S20 ranges. In addition to this, eUFS 3.1 is 60% faster for random read speeds (hitting 100,000 IOPs) and write speeds (70,000 IOPS). eUFS 3.1 will arrive in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities and be available for smartphones in the 2d half of the year. Sure, that means it be a shoe-in for the Galaxy Reveal 20.
Connectivity and Ports– As mentioned above, 5G will arrive as standard (it’s a mandatory feature for manufacturer’s using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset) along with subsequent-gen WiFi 6. Nonetheless an interesting leak says Samsung is considering bringing back the microSD slot which was controversially faraway from the entry-diploma Galaxy Reveal 10 last year. That said, don’t anticipate a similar reprieve for the headphone jack, it has long past for lawful.
Biometrics –The ample surprise with the Galaxy S20 range is Samsung did now not exhaust Qualcomm’s subsequent-gen 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanner, despite it being available to smartphone makers since September. The Galaxy Reveal 20 line-up certainly fixes this mistake and given its faster scanning time, toughen for a distinguished wider reading area (making no-ogle unlocks easier) and dual fingerprints, this may possibly be a ample upgrade from the hit and omit gen-one sensor in Galaxy S20 phones.
Battery Existence– again anticipate the Galaxy S20 smartphones to have the most straightforward battery existence due to the internal space position aside in the Reveal line-up for the S Pen. That said, Samsung went ample on the battery capacity for the S20s, so anticipate the Reveal 20s to arrive stop to these battery sizes:
- Galaxy S20 – 4,000 mAh (S10: 3,400 mAh)
- Galaxy S20+: 4,500 mAh (S10+: 4,100 mAh)
- Galaxy S20 Ultra: 5,000 mAh
As for charging, 25W is standard for the Galaxy S20 and S20+ with 45W original to the S20 Ultra (although with minute real-world relieve). A similar split (especially if there may be a Reveal 20 Ultra) makes sense here. Wi-fi charging and Wi-fi Energy share (charging other devices), on the alternative hand, didn’t step up with the Galaxy S20 range, so maybe Samsung pulls some surprises here but nothing has leaked so far.
Impress– Right here is perhaps the greatest fear for the Galaxy Reveal 20 phones. Samsung, arguably, pushed prices too high with the Galaxy S20 phones:
- Galaxy S20 – 128GB, from $999
- Galaxy S20+ – 128GB / 256GB / 512GB, from $1,199
- Galaxy S20 Ultra – 128GB / 256GB / 512GB, from $1,399
How the S20 range sells will be a ample indicator of whether or now not Samsung sticks with the attention-opening strategy. I’m hoping for a change of heart, but I think simplest a sales disaster will make Samsung change course.
Release Date– Samsung seems to be to transfer up the Galaxy Reveal launch date each year. August 7 was the launch of the Reveal 10s and I’d anticipate another early August launch for the Galaxy Reveal 20 lineup as Samsung tries to make some space for sales earlier than Apple launches its subsequent-gen iPhone gadgets in mid-September.
The Galaxy Reveal 20 range will be heavily influenced by the Galaxy S20 gadgets with design, performance, camera and (sadly) pricing all position to be similar. Nonetheless there are also satisfactory potential variations (display, biometrics and that ample S Pen upgrade) to counsel this may be the most smartly-rounded and polished smartphone Samsung releases in 2020.
Galaxy Reveal fans will be happy to wait for its arrival. Nonetheless, given the Galaxy S20’s bugs and high prices (ample reductions will arrive), I’d counsel many Samsung fans may level-headed defend tight as smartly.
