Samsung’s Galaxy S20 has better cameras, battery life and built-in 5G

San Francisco (CNN Business)Samsung is betting on a souped-up camera and enhanced 5G capabilities — as well as a new flip phone — to fend off its competition for the global smartphone crown and convince users to upgrade their devices.The world’s biggest smartphone maker unveiled its latest flagship device, the Galaxy S20, at its “Unpacked” event in San Francisco on Tuesday, boasting a new camera architecture it says is capable of taking “pro-grade” photos and videos. It’s also the first time Samsung is releasing a fully 5G lineup, with all versions touting support for the emerging mobile technology.Samsung says its decision to jump straight from the S10 to the S20 is meant to signal its shift to a new generation of devices as 5G becomes increasingly available.”As we enter this new decade, 5G will completely change how we communicate and how we experience the world around us,” said TM Roh, the company’s president and head of mobile communications, in a statement. “Samsung is providing a next-generation device for transforming people’s lives,” he added.
