NEW YORK, May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Samsung Galaxy S20 5G UW (6.2”)1, built from the ground up to support 5G Ultra Wideband, is coming to Verizon. Preorder yours online or using the My Verizon app starting May 21 for $41.66 a month for 24 months on Verizon Device Payment (0% APR; $999.99 retail).
The Galaxy S20 5G UW expands on a legacy of innovation that has made Samsung a leader in 5G phones and a name synonymous with powerful cameras, hyper-fast device performance and stunning design. It joins the Galaxy S20 5G+ and Galaxy S20 5G Ultra, currently available on Verizon. Here are the coolest features of the Galaxy S20 5G UW:
5G Built Right: The Galaxy S20 5G UW taps into Verizon’s extremely-fast 5G Ultra Wideband network, and will connect to Verizon’s low-band 5G network, going live later this year. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband offers access to speeds that will change the way you use your smartphone for work, play and everything in between.2
As it continues to expand, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network will allow you to game with near-zero lag time and upload photos and videos to your favorite content-sharing platform as fast as you can shoot. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service is currently available on 13 devices in parts of 34 cities, with more being lit up throughout 2020.
A brand new camera system: Designed for the way you live, the Galaxy S20 introduces an entirely new camera system—powered by AI and Samsung’s biggest image sensor yet—to bring out the best in every image and every moment. The Galaxy S20 5G UW features a 64-megapixel camera with 30x Space Zoom so even when you are far away, you can zoom in close.
For videographers, the phone can shoot in 8K resolution so users can capture their world in true-to-life color and quality. Thanks to Super Steady’s anti-rolling stabilization and AI motion analysis, even the bumpiest videos look like they were shot using a gimbal. What’s more? You can upload your 8K videos directly to YouTube. With Single Take3, just one tap captures multiple photos and videos with different perspectives, such as live focus, cropped, ultra wide and more. Then the AI recommends the best shots for you.
Striking design: The Galaxy S20 5G UW features Samsung’s gorgeous Infinity-O Display that gives you a cinematic viewing experience in the palm of your hand. The new 120Hz refresh rate display gives you lightning-fast touch response and super smooth graphics. The display includes an Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for added security and an unobtrusive, centered 10MP front-facing camera cut-out for a sleek look.
Down to business.
Beyond the ability to connect to Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network to help run your business, the Galaxy S20 5G UW also offers great security. The Galaxy S20 5G UW is protected by Knox — the military-grade mobile security platform that protects the device from the chip level through the software level. Powered by a big, intelligent battery, the Galaxy S20 5G UW comes with a huge 4,000 mAh battery and 25W fast charger for super-fast charging to get you up and running in minutes.
