Samsung Galaxy S20: Fresh Leak Reveals 120Hz Display And No Headphone Jack

Samsung Galaxy S20 leaks have been raining off late and its now almost getting tad tiring to try and keep up with them as we get close to launch. The latest news strong hint at a 120Hz display but no 3.5mm headphone jack and even though this is still leaked information as of now, it comes from someone who has had time with an alleged S20 Plus phone well before the February 11 launch event.

The upcoming S20 news backs up a previous leak, back when we were all calling it the S11, which first mentioned a choice between 60Hz and 120Hz refresh rates as an option within the Samsung OneUI beta software.

Today’s S20 Plus leak for the basically confirms those options in the larger handset, according to XDA Developers contributor Max Weinbach. He has photo evidence from a source with alleged access to one of the S20 Plus handsets. In other words, this could be coming to the whole Samsung smartphone line in 2020.

The very same leak also suggests that the S20 Plus will have a 3,200 x 1,440 WQHD+ resolution display, which are longer dimensions thanks to a 20:9 aspect ratio. But you won’t be able to get 120Hz at this max resolution and that’s because (as per Max Winebach’s leak), the faster refresh rate will be capped at FHD+.

By default, Samsung’s top-end flagships in recent years have all had QHD+ displays, but by default resolution has been 1080p out of the box. You had to change to QHD+ in the settings menu, which did drain the battery life faster. We’re not certain most people notice the pixel-packing difference on handsets of this size. So the 120Hz existing only at FHD+ may be non-factor.

The news of the S20 featuring a 120Hz display also comes shortly after OnePlus revealed that it’s working on 120Hz screen tech after releasing phones with 90Hz displays in 2019. Older rumors suggest that the iPhone 12 line could also get 120Hz displays later this year.

The leak also included a short video which 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.
