The Samsung Galaxy S20 family is official. Launched alongside Samsung’s second foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip, the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra bring new camera systems to the entire line. Ditching dual apertures in favor of big pixels and high resolutions, the S20 and S20 Plus’s telephoto cameras climb up to 64MP, while the S20 Ultra’s main sensor is a Xiaomi Mi Note 10-sized 108MP. 

All three flagships from the Korean tech giant carry forward much of what made past Samsung Galaxy's top-tier phones - curved glass fronts and backs, metal frames and IP68 water and dust resistance. That said, more on the specs later - we know why you really came here - to find out more about those stratospheric telephoto cameras.
