Coming right behind the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is the S20 plus. All announced and unveiled at the February 11th Samsung event. The Samsung Galaxy S20 plus also has a 5G variant, but some other features as seen in the S20 Ultra were a little bit toned down like the camera, memory, and battery. Some of the features that were already termed as overkill in the S20 Ultra. The Galaxy S20+ is a bit lighter and smaller than the bigger S20 Ultra, coming with a display of 6.7 inches. This, however, has it’s own advantage for the S20+, as it is easier and firmer to hold.
