(Pocket-lint) - Samsung's made a splash with the announcement of its latest flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S20, with a seriously impressive sheet of specs and a gorgeous design to go with it.
There are a bunch of different models to choose from, including versions that will be able to take full advantage of EE's hyperfast 5G network, so we thought it would be useful to run you through some of the amazing features that Samsung's brought to the Galaxy S20 range.
Before we begin, though, if you want to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S20, you can do so from EE right here, and bundle it together with some seriously great packages.
1. The camera is bleeding-edge
Samsung knows a thing or two about smartphone cameras, but has outdone itself again with the Galaxy S20. This is the smartphone camera to end all cameras - it packs a 64 megapixel telephoto lens, as well as a yawning 12 megapixel wide-angle lens, setting you up to take pro-level shots in whatever ways you want.
You can use the S20's 30x Space Zoom to get up close to your subject, while 30FPS footage can be shot at stunning 8K resolution to ensure that if video's more your thing you'll be just as blown away. Plus, if you want to shoot video and capture still shots while you do, a tap will land you 33MP stills instantly while you film.
2. Edge-to-edge design
Immediately eye-catching - that's how we'd describe the design of the Galaxy S20. Samsung's edge-to-edge displays keep getting better, and this 6.2-inch Infinity-O display is beautiful in all the right ways, with crisp and clear resolution plus truly deep colours and blacks. Plus, it's a 120Hz display, meaning that every motion is smooth and picture-perfect.
Plus, the punch-out for the front camera is smaller than ever, showing that notches really belong in the past. If you want to take more control over your screen, too, you can - Samsung's letting you customise its colour, sharpness and saturation just the way you like it.
That display is the perfect place to watch video, then, and EE's throwing in a great bonus in that area. BritBox is the largest ever collection of British boxsets in one place, and you'll be able to start bingeing straight away with your first six months for free when you pick up the Galaxy S20.
3. Battery life that lasts
Smartphones are only getting better, but not all of them have moved out of the dark ages when it comes to battery life. Thankfully, that doesn't apply to Samsung. The Galaxy S20’s battery has fully 4000 mAh in capacity, to keep you going.
More impressively, though, it cleverly uses power by directing it away from apps you’re not using. Plus, if one of your friends runs out of juice, they can place their handset back to back with your Galaxy S20 for a lightning-quick boost. Lastly, Super Fast Charging means you spend less time tied to your phone charger and more time out and about doing what you love.
The phone also works perfectly with Samsung's new Galaxy Buds+, and on EE if you order the Galaxy S20+ 5G or S20 Ultra 5G by 8th March you'll get a free pair of Samsung’s incredible wireless earphones to go with your phone.
4. Jaw-dropping performance
Samsung's jammed as much RAM as some laptops into the Galaxy S20 - 8GB, which means that you can expect buttery-smooth performance regardless of what you're doing. It's particularly reliable for mobile gaming, and the phone's Exynos 990 processor only heightens its power.
Plus you won't be in much danger of running out of storage - the phone comes with 128GB of internal storage but also supports micro SD cards to let you expand it to over a terabyte of capacity. Cloud backups are nice, but so is not having to make them in the first place.
Of course, if you pick up a 5G version of the phone on EE you'll be able to access that superfast network in more places than on any other carrier. On top of that, though, with unlimited data you can watch, stream and game with uncapped speeds whenever you like. Plus, you can gift any spare data from your first 120GB to your friends and family.
5. A phone that works around you
For years now, Samsung's been building on the basic Android experience to ensure that your phone works with and around you to make every experience and interaction a pleasure, and never an annoyance.
The Galaxy S20 comes with One UI 2.0 pre-installed, the very latest version of Samsung's smoothed-out Android 10 experience. That means you'll be greeted by uncluttered screens, super clear icons and blistering quick response times when you take an action. It's all geared towards making your smartphone a pleasure to use.
If you're anything like us, those details have whetted your appetite considerably. Now's the time to get your order in with EE, to make sure that you can get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S20 as early as possible. Even better, if you've got a Samsung Galaxy phone to trade in against the S20 range, you can save up to £300 on the new handset.
