Leaks reveal the final design of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Ultra 5G

The Samsung Galaxy S20 range is coming. Leaks and rumors have reached a fever point in the last few weeks, and as a result, we know pretty much everything you want to know about Samsung’s upcoming flagship phones. But many elements of a phone can be changed before release, and older leaks can reflect older designs. As such, it’s always quite exciting when a design is confirmed close to release. That’s just happened with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, and by multiple leakers to boot. According to multiple experienced leakers, this is what we’ll be expecting to see when Samsung reveals the biggest phone in the Galaxy S20 range.

The first of these leaks came from Ishan Agarwal, and it clarifies what the upgraded camera module will look like. It comprises four lenses and an LED flash, and getting the look of the camera module right was likely a major challenge for Samsung, as a badly designed camera module can immediately put people off a phone. The final design, as tweeted by Ishan, shows that Samsung may have nailed that design. Rather than opting for a single oblong block, Samsung has divided the camera module up with a two-tone finish. Much like the leaked design of the Huawei P40 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will use a gray matte finish around the three main camera lenses and LED flash, leave the telephoto lens outside of the main module.

It may initially seem like an odd decision, but in practice it allows Samsung to draw attention to the telephoto lens, which is rumored to be a periscope lens packing an impressive 10x optical zoom. The lens is also rumored to reach 100× zoom with digital zoom, and that feature is highlighted in placeholder text beside the lens. The remaining lenses form a rounded square “squircle.” The overall impact is much more pleasing to the eye than previous leaks, which shows a module with a single tone.

This render’s veracity has been backed up by other leakers, who wasted no time in adding the new module to older render, giving us what may be the first accurate look at the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

Of course, we’ll only know if these renders are truthful when the phone range is released. At the moment, the new Galaxy S20 series phones are expected to be revealed at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 11. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is rumored to be the largest phone in a three phone range, and will be joined by the Samsung Galaxy S20, and the Galaxy S20 Plus.

This is the most unusual Galaxy S23 Ultra camera test I’ve ever done
The Galaxy A54 and Galaxy S23 Ultra's camera modules.

Comparing phone cameras is a fine balancing act, where everything from the price of the device to the functionality is considered before taking the first photos. So, under normal circumstances, the Samsung Galaxy A54 would never face the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. After all, they’re worlds apart in both of those areas. So why are you about to see a comparison between the two?

It’s simple. Because they are so different, just how much better or worse is one compared to the other? Or are they closer together than Samsung would like you to think? Let's see if we can save you money or convince you to spend more with one of the most unusual camera comparisons we've done yet.
Just how different are the cameras?

Moto G Power 5G adds a flagship feature to a budget phone
Render of the Motorola Moto G Power 5G in a white color against a light purple background.

Motorola may be making a play for the flagship market with the Motorola Edge 40 Pro, but budget phones are what the American monolith is best known for. While it won't be making as many waves as the latest Samsung phone or Apple iPhone launch, the newest iteration of the Moto G is always something worth paying attention to, as Motorola is a true veteran of the space and knows what makes an excellent cheap device.

Best of all, this new Moto G comes at a time when budget phone enthusiasts have never had it so good. Previously premium features are filtering down into lower-priced devices, without altering that sweet low price or the features everyone loves. That's exactly what's happening with the new Motorola Moto G Power 5G, which includes a 50-megapixel main camera lens, a larger amount of storage, and a big screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. With the big 5,000mAh battery the G Power range is known for, this could be the $300 phone to grab if you love a budget bargain.

Here’s our very first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Plus
Galaxy Tab S9+ leaked images

Samsung’s existing slate of Android tablets is one of the finest hardware of its kind, and it appears that the company doesn’t want to stray from the winning formula any time soon. Leaker @OnLeaks has shared renders of the Galaxy S9 Plus, and they bear a striking similarity to its Galaxy Tab S8 series predecessor.

The sleek metallic build with sharp edges is here to stay, and so is the contrasting magnetic strip at the back. The bezel size also remains familiar, while the horizontally positioned selfie camera is once again positioned at the same spot.
