Wait For Faster Charging & A Bigger Battery
And finally, while there's a lot to talk about surrounding these phones, the other most important thing is regarding battery size and charging speeds for the S20, and more importantly, the S20 Ultra 5G.
If it's true that all three models will come with 5G, battery life will be important. Simply because 5G has been shown to make phones hot and drain the battery very quick. And while Samsung is making the smaller two models with and without 5G, we're hearing the United States will simply offer all three with 5G, and that's all. Only regions outside the US will have a 4G LTE option.
So, battery life will be important. Which is why we're happy with the news, rumors, and leaks of a huge 5,000 mAh battery in the Galaxy S20 Ultra. I know what you're thinking. We've heard rumors like this before -- and I agree. However, with a huge screen and 5G this might finally be the year Samsung does it.
Plus, Apple really stepped up the battery game with the iPhone 11 Pro, and Samsung will need to do the same.
The same tweet we keep referencing by Max Weinbach suggests the Galaxy S20 Ultra will have a 5,000 mAh battery, wireless charging 2.0, and a new faster 45w wired charger option. that 45w wall plug will take the huge battery from 0-100% in just 74 minutes. That's impressive.
Then, the smaller two Galaxy S20 models will still get an upgrade over the S10 and Note 10, and come with a new 25w fast charger in the box. For what it's worth, the Note 10+ was capable of 25w and 45w charging, but Samsung didn't put the faster charger in the box. So you had to pay extra for those faster speeds.
Basically, if you want a huge battery and super-fast charging wait for the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.
