Samsung Galaxy S20+ Philippines Price is PHP 55,990, Actual Photos, Complete Specs

The freshly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S20+ sits right smack in the middle of its siblings - Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Ultra flagship level 2020 Android smartphones - in terms of size and overall features.

What's interesting, though, is that the official price of this model is closer to the SRP of the base release than to that of the Ultra version, which I think should make it pretty aspirational for consumers who are currently looking at the Samsung Galaxy S20.

The official SRP of Samsung Galaxy S20+ is PHP 55,990, making it just PHP 6,000 pricier than the smaller Samsung Galaxy S20 and PHP 14,000 less expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.

In terms of looks, S20+ is practically just a larger version of the S20, replete with scratch-resistant curved front and back glass panels and a metal mid-frame. The look of the rectangular camera module at the rear is also pretty much identical on both models, compared to the larger and more protruding camera plate of the S20 Ultra.

The hardware button placements are also the same on all three models. The volume rocker as well as the power button are all placed on the right side for easy thumb access when holding the device.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ flaunts a 6.7-inch QuadHD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2.0 panel, which is closer to the size of S20 Ultra's 6.9-inch screen than to the 6.2-inch display of the Galaxy S20.

If screen size is a huge deal for you on a flagship smartphone but you're not too keen on spending almost PHP 70,000 on a new phone, then I guess this is the Galaxy S20 Series model that you should be looking at.

Samsung Galaxy S20+ Cameras

Now, as for imaging capabilities, Samsung Galaxy S20+ has all the cameras of the Galaxy S20 - namely, the 12 MegaPixel f/1.8 Primary Camers with Dual Pixel Phase Detection AutoFocus and  Optical Image Stabilization, the 64 MegaPixel f/2.0 Telephoto Camera makes 3X Optical Zoom possible, and the 12 MegaPixels f/2.2, Ultra-Wide Cam for capturing scale - with the addition of a DepthVision sensor at the back for cleaner bokeh effect in Live Focus mode both for photos and videos.

Great for vloggers and Youtube content creators, Samsung Galaxy S20+'s rear camera module can record 8K videos at 30 frames per second (a stellar capability that's currently unique to the 2020 Galaxy S20 Series) as well as 4K videos at 30 and 60 frames per second or FullHD clips at 30, 60, and 240 fps.

In front, inside the punch hole that's placed assymetrically at the top of the screen, there's a 10 MegaPixel f/1.9 selfie snapper that can also record 4K videos at up to 60fps or for those who want to save space, FullHD clips at 30 and 60 fps.

Samsung Galaxy S20+'s video recorders support Auto-HDR for better handling of hues, shadows, and highlights in high contrast lighting conditions such as when recording talking head videos in front of a bright background. Also, there's Super Steady Mode for the ultra-wide camera at the back for more stable shots while walking and Live Focus Mode for Video that lets you add bokeh effect to your clips.

Under the hood, Samsung Galaxy S20+ shares nearly the same specs as the Galaxy S20. Both run their One UI 2.0 skinned Android 10 operating system with the powerful Exynos 990 processor that enables stellar AI capabilities and they also have the same 8GB of RAM for multitasking and 128GB of expandable storage.

However, to match its large screen, Samsung had also put a bigger 4,500 mAh Li-Po battery on the S20+ versus just 4,000 mAh on the smaller S20. Both packs supports 25W Fast Charging via the USB Type C port and should be good enough to deliver a whole day of uptime with regular use.

Delivering a great viewing experience with its large screen but costing far less than the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S20+ will be available in three elegant colorways upon launch here in the Philippines, namely, Cosmic Gray, Cosmic Black, and Cloud Blue, which is a pre-order exclusive. Samsung Galaxy S20+, along with the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Ultra, wil be officially released in the Philippines on March 6, 2020.
