The Samsung Galaxy S20 leaks are popping up a number of occasions per day, and the newest information comes from a hands-on with an alleged S20 Plus. It strongly hints it is best to count on to see a 120Hz show, however not conventional 3.5mm headphone jack.
This backs up a earlier leak for the usual S20, which hints at a selection between 60Hz and 120Hz refresh charges as an choice inside the Samsung OneUI beta software program. This new leak for the S20 Plus principally confirms these choices, in response to XDA Developers contributor Max Weinbach. He has photograph proof from a supply with alleged entry to one of many S20 Plus handsets. In different phrases, this might be coming to the entire Samsung smartphone line in 2020.
This leak additionally suggests the S20 Plus could have a 3,200 x 1,440 WQHD+ decision show, that are longer dimensions due to a 20:9 facet ratio. However you received’t be capable to get 120Hz at this max decision – the sooner refresh price will probably be capped at FHD+, per the leak.
This comes shortly after OnePlus revealed it’s working on 120Hz screen tech after releasing phones with 90Hz displays in 2019, while older rumors suggested the iPhone 12 line could get 120Hz displays as well.
No headphone jack for the Galaxy S20 Plus?
The XDA leak included another tidbit: a hands-on video from the source.
This short video shows the ‘domino’ style rear camera block, though further info supplied to XDA affirms that the headphone jack is nowhere to be found. If true, and following the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 omission of a 3.5mm port, this finally spells the end of headphone jacks for Samsung flagships.
And, appropriately, this should be the end of Samsung’s long sneering at Apple for ditching the headphone jack starting with the iPhone 7. Samsung started down this road by losing them in the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus six months ago. Samsung reps justified the removal by claiming it allowed a bit more (100mAh) battery and improving haptic feedback.
It’s not completely gone from Samsung top-line phones in 2020: the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite has a headphone jack, as we saw at CES 2020. Lastly, the XDA leak affirmed that the S20 phones would be retaining its predecessors’ in-screen ultrasonic scanners instead of swapping them out for optical scanners.
