Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite India launch date confirmed: Specs, expected price

Samsung is showing us new phones in a few weeks but you can get a head start thanks to some leaks

Unlike last year's Galaxy Fold, though, which expanded from a phone form factor to a tablet, the Galaxy Z Flip is a more traditional clamshell-style foldable, which will unfold to a phone size, and be smaller when folded. The phone also has a 20:9 aspect ratio. Some rumors suggest the refresh rate will require Full HD+ resolution, but nothing in the leaked spec sheet clarifies that.

There is an Exynos 990 processor inside too along with 128GB of storage. This is a major role reversal from previous years when the Galaxy S series would be equipped with an Exynos chipset everywhere but the U.S. You might recall that back in 2015, Samsung chose to power all Galaxy S6 models with the Exynos 7420 chipset because of concerns about overheating with the Snapdragon 810 SoC. Even without the 5G factor, it will be the one that is expected to be equipped with the highest specs, including the largest 6.9-inch 3200×1400 120 Hz screen, as much as 16 GB of RAM and, of course, the best cameras. Camera capabilities include 8K 30fps video capture and up to 10x optical zoom. The latter will be marketed as (imagine a deep announcer's voice with a bit of an echo) "SPACE ZOOM".

Multi-camera setups return, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra raises the bar with a 108MP primary sensor, a 48MP telephoto sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and built-in time-of-flight sensors. The latter measures the time it takes for an infrared beam to bounce off of a subject and return to the phone. It also has the same 12MP ultrawide camera but skips the ToF camera. Rather than one solid rectangular block of black, Ishan Agarwal claims that setup will have two colors, with a gray matte-like material that sets the periscope camera apart from the rest.

Real photos, hands-on video, and concept drawings of the Samsung Galaxy S20 have been leaked online. Power users will be pleased to know that Samsung appears to be making the microSD card expansion slot a standard feature across the range. Overall, these three smartphones also have IP68 water resistance. The phone will have an IP68 rating meaning that it is impervious to dust and can be submerged in almost 5 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.
