The question that you might is do we really need 16GB of RAM in a smartphone? The clear answer is no as smartphones can’t perform complex actions as compared to computers, yet. But having a device with 16GB increases its longevity as phones are being exponentially priced.
Another interesting “feature” that Max tweeted about is the camera capabilities of the S20 Ultra 5G. Its main shooter will be a 108MP sensor with a 48MP 10x optical zoom lens and a 12MP ultra-wide lens. Other reports also suggest that the phone could shoot 8K videos. That’s just insane!
Max had previously tweeted that Samsung will launch Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20 5G, Samsung Galaxy S20+, Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G, and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. That’s a total of 5 flagships. We’ll keep you updated once the phones are official.
