Design

Going by the design, the Samsung Galaxy S20 is not far from its predecessor the Galaxy S10. Size-wise, the device packs similar body design. Apart from the whole body that is wrapped with the latest corning gorilla glass 6, the handset also comes in a grand style.

The neat panel and the whole body measures 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9 mm in dimensions and also weight 164 grams. It has an IP68 rating making it both dust and water-resistant up to 1.5m for 30 mins.

This means users can take the phone along to the pool. However, you have to be careful because the warranty does not cover liquid damage. There’s also Samsung Pay equipped on the phone.

Display

You must have been wondering about the location of the fingerprint scanner since it’s not on the back. Yes, your guess is as good as mine. The security features have been shifted to the screen which is the perfect place.
