From 5G network speeds to 8K videos, the Galaxy S20+ 5G SM-G986U 128GB Smartphone from Samsung pushes forward what's possible with smartphone technology. The quad camera system features a 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP wide, 64MP telephoto, and DepthVision camera - plus a 10MP selfie cam. The cameras can get close with up to 30x zoom, and incredibly detailed with up to 8K videos. The addition of DepthVision lets you blur the backgrounds on portraits, and with 8K Video Snap, you can pull out a frame to save it as a hi-res 33MP image.

A huge 6.7", HDR10+ certified, AMOLED 2X display is your viewfinder for saving memories as well as your portal for experiencing new moments with the latest in mobile entertainment. The nearly bezel-less Infinity-O display has no notch, just a small cutout for the selfie camera, helping to immerse you in your games and streaming videos. Content that will look brilliant at 3200 x 1400 resolution, and run smooth with support for a 120 Hz refresh rate (up to 1080p).

Powering everything is a 4500mAh battery for all-day power. Under the hood, the Galaxy S20+ runs the Android 10 operating system and sports a 7nm 64-bit 2.8 GHz processor, Snapdragon 865 chipset, and 12GB of RAM. Your 8K videos, 33MP video snaps, and DepthVision portraits can be saved on the Galaxy S20+'s 128GB of internal storage, which can be upgraded with an (optional) microSD card up to 1TB in size.

Android 10

The Android operating system is a personalized and customizable OS that allows you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen and integrates heavily with Google's services. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to millions of apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 10 adds a wide variety of intelligent features, additional privacy controls, and other enhancements that make using your Android phone more enjoyable. Some features include Live Caption, which captions running videos, podcasts, and audio messages without the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data; Smart Reply, which suggests both responses to and actions for texts; and Family Link, which lets you manage apps, set screen time limits, and more.

GSM + CDMA / 4G LTE + 5G Wireless Connectivity

This phone is designed to work on select CDMA, GSM & 5G networks. 5G is a cellular network data protocol capable of extremely fast data speeds that rival, or surpass, that of wired broadband Internet providers. 5G speeds can vary considerably based on location, but on average, should have no problem streaming 4K video. As 5G upgrades over time, mobile AR and VR applications could become possible. The phone is backwards compatible with 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G data for locations that do not support 5G.
Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with within the product's Specifications tab.

North American Variant / US Compatible 5G

The SM-G986U is a US variant of the Galaxy S20+. It may be used in other parts of the world; however, 5G access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network.

8K Video with 8K Video Snap

Capture 8K videos for extremely high definition videos that you can stream to YouTube and cast to a compatible Samsung 8K TV. The videos are so detailed that you can scan frame-by-frame, and cherry-pick the best moments to save as hi-res 33MP still photos.

Night Mode

A large image sensor pulls in more light to brighten low-light shots. This mode will also capture multiple photos at once and merge them together, providing you with a final image that has minimal blur and noise.

Single Take

Utilizing built-in AI, Single Take will shoot from 3 to 10 seconds from every camera, saving a host of images in different formats and styles. Choose your favorite style with reshooting or risking a missing opportunity.

Super Steady

Combining the large image sensor with an anti-rolling stabilizer, built-in AI counters heavy camera shake like an action cam. Altogether, the S20+ uses these technologies to turn blurry and unstable video into super smooth footage.

Editing & Pro Mode

These two features provide you with customization options and a suite of enhancements to make your images and video look more professional.
  • Make edits to multiple videos and photos
  • Insert transitions and subtitles
  • Change video speeds
  • Merge photos and 4K video together to make a highlight reel
  • Adjust ISO, shutter speed, exposure settings, and more

Quick Share

Without needing to pair any phones together, this feature looks to see how many of your contacts are nearby and lets you share content with up to 5 of them at the same time.

Night Hyperlapse

The larger image sensors let in more light for more vibrant night shots. With Night Hyperlapse, this means you can shoot video with long exposure-style captures for striking light trails.

Additional Camera Features

HDR: Shoot images and video with more contrast and true-to-life hues
HDR10+ & Dynamic Tone Mapping: Keep colors and contrast accurate when filming with the rear cameras
Bokeh: Blur out backgrounds in photos and video for an artistic effect
Super Slow-Mo: Shoot up to 960 fps in 720p resolution

Quick Measure: In a pinch, use your camera as a measuring tape

Ultrasonic Fingerprint

Built into the screen, it pulses to detect the 3D ridges and valleys of your prints for invisible security for your private data.

Surround Sound

Stereo audio enhanced by Dolby Atmos technology to give your media and music a rich, 3D sound experience.

One UI 2

Samsung's One UI 2 is a software overlay for Android that changes the Galaxy S20+ to provide you with customizations and enhancements that are meant to keep you focused, make you more productive, and streamline accessibility of the phone's apps and functions.

IP68 Water Resistance

Don't sweat a little rain - or sweat - with IP68 water resistance that lets the Galaxy S20+ can withstand being in up to 4.9' of water for up to 30 minutes.

All-Day Power

The built-in battery is combined with intelligent AI that adjusts to your mobile habits, helping to save you power and last longer on a single charge.

Additional Power Features

Super-fast charging to give you hours of power in just minutes
Fast wireless charging 2.0 with an optional wireless charger

Excellent phone! Very noticeable processing speed improvement over my S9. 120Hz refresh rate is butter. So glad I didn't listen to all the people saying it didn't work with Verizon - I popped my SIM in and it worked instantly!

I decided to upgrade from my OnePlus 5t to the s20 . So far I am not really pleased. I have already noticed issues with the touch screen sensitivity even when turned up completely. I would return it if I could.

So far too good to unsee

S20+ is ahead in terms of my expectations and it could be because of the giant leap from my S7. Display is good and battery life is equally good when used with default refresh rate (60) and would have loved to have the same dynamic refresh rate as in Note 20 Pro Ultra. B&H shipping as usual was fast.
