Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Might Be The First Phone To Have 16GB RAM

Although we’re only a month away, we already have a fair idea on what the Samsung Galaxy S20 series is all about. It comprises of three phones: the Samsung Galaxy S20, the Samsung Galaxy S20+, and the top-end Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. And according to a leak, the S20 Ultra might actually have more RAM than your laptop.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 (or Exynos 990, depending on the region). But what really justifies the suffix of Ultra is the possibility that the phone might have support for up to a whopping 16GB of RAM. Yes, we know, it’s overkill. Even 12GB of RAM, that Samsung included on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ was a bit overboard. But that extra RAM might mean that the phone would virtually not kill apps in the background, ever!

The camera setup of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra further justifies that Samsung has gone all-in with the phone. The phone will flaunt Samsung’s 108MP sensor that we recently saw on the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. Complimenting the sensor will be a 48MP 10x telephoto sensor, which is quite unique in its implementation. There will also be a 12MP ultrawide sensor. While we only have information on these three sensors, the phone might have an additional sensor.

Along with the option of either 12GB or 16GB of RAM, the phone is said to come in three storage variants of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. If that’s not enough storage for you, the microSD card slot is rumoured to support up to 1TB memory cards.

Lastly, the phone will feature a beefy 5,000mAh battery that is warranted considering the possibility that the phone is expected to have a 120Hz display. To quickly fill up the phone, it’ll support 45W fast charging that we’ve also seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+.

If all is right, we’ll see the phone in its full glory at the Samsung Unpacked event that will take place next month on 11 February.
