At an exquisite event that took place in San Francisco on the 11th of February 2020, Samsung officially announced the new line ups of the Galaxy S smartphones. I recently published about the S20 and S20+ and this particular write up is about the Samsung S20 Ultra price in Nigeria and full specifications.
The S20 ultra is the best of the new line ups.

- Comes with more and better camera. Actually, as at the time of its launch, it has the best camera set up on any smartphone.

- Option for a 16GB RAM.
- If you pre-order, you will get the new Samsung Ear Buds for free. Pre-Order starts on the 21st and shipping out starts the 16th of March.
How Much is Samsung S20 Ultra Price in Nigeria
S20 Ultra from Samsung starts at 510,000 Naira. You can get it on Jumia, Slot and other online stores across the country.
Design & Display
With the exception of the camera set up, it feature the same design as the lower S20s.
I mean the Infinity-O display with the selfie camera at the top center of the screen, the sim+sd card slot at the up left, the USB Type-C port and speaker grill at the bottom, the power and volume buttons on the right hand side while the left is plain.
Just like the lower S20s, it also uses ultrasonic under display fingerprint as biometric to unlock your devices along side other security measures put in place.
The top, bottom and sides bezel are pretty thin, the screen is not as curved as it used to be and the AMOLED screen looks sharp and bright with great color science and reproduction.
At the back is the Quad camera set up which include the main camera, time of flight camera, telephoto lens, wide angle camera and the LED flash.
However, it features a bigger 6.9″ display size but with the same Quad HD+ Super Amoled display quality with pixel density at 511 ppi. The entire body is designed out of Gorilla Glass 6 which means super protection from fall and scratches.
It is IP68 certified meaning it is dust and water resistant up to 1.5m under water for about 30 minutes. It is resistance to couple other liquids too but not for that long.
The AMOLED display also supports up to 120Hz refresh rate which guarantees smooth scrolling and user experience.
It is packed with a huge 5000 mAh battery out of the box. Inside the box is also a 45 watt charger to help charge the phone much more faster.
With reverse charging technology, you can also charge other devices with it using it as power bank. All you have to do is place that other device on its back and it will starts charging. You S20 Ultra losses energy while the other gains it.
You will be able to go more than a day without charging this phone at all even with display on 120Hz and 5G On thanks to the power management of the A.I.
S20 Ultra is powered by Snapdragon 865 for the US consumers and Exynos 990 for other consumers around the globe.
You have options to choose between the 12GB RAM which comes with 128GB internal storage or the 16GB RAM that comes with 512GB internal storage.
It also support SD card up to 1TB.
The device runs on Android 10 with One UI 2 on top of it.
This is the major focus of Samsung on this device.
What makes this the best camera phone yet is not just the hardware but also the software built in to it and plethora of options for taking pictures and shooting videos.
- The Main Camera is 108MP at F/1.8, 1/1.33
- Wide angle camera is 12MP at F/2.2, 1/2.55
- 10X 48MP Telephoto camera at F/3.5, 1/2. 10X optical zoom and 100X digital zoom
- There is also a depth sensor / time of flight camera
It can shoot 8K videos with the regular camera unlike the lower S20s that will have to switch to the telephoto camera.
Ultra S20 also comes with variety of options to enhance your smartphone photography experience. Some of those options include Pro Mode, Super Steady Mode, Single Take etc.
Low light photography is on a whole new level on this device.
Selfie camera is 40MP. One of the best that there is on any smartphone right now.
There is a new player in the smartphone photography and it is the S20s. It used to be between iPhones and the Pixels with Samsung and OnePlus as the runner up
But let me tell you this, the S20 Ultra beats both the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Pixel 4.
With the above specs and features of the Samsung S20 Ultra, i think you will agree with me that it is an all rounder great device. I mean there is no down side to this device. From battery to camera to display quality and processor. They are all best of the best.
But one thing that might prevent people from getting the device is the money. I mean are you ready to shed whopping 1399 US Dollars on smartphone? Yes, phone not a PC or desktop.
Let me know what you think about this device in the comment.
