Samsung Galaxy S20 series phones are available to buy in Nepal. The latest flagship series from Samsung S20 was officially unveiled at Samsung Unpacked on 11 February 2020. Find the detailed specs and price of Samsung S20 series phone in Nepal.
Earlier Samsung had launched the three major models in the S20 series: the 6.2-inch Galaxy S20, the 6.7-inch Galaxy S20 Plus, and the 6.9-inch Galaxy S20 Ultra. All three phones come with a vastly improved camera in which the S20 and S20 Plus sports a new 64MP sensor, while the S20 Ultra gets a whopping 108MP camera.
What’s more, the Ultra should offer a 100x Space Zoom (digital) and 5G standard. And a new 120Hz display has graced all of the new Galaxy S20 phones. These are just some of the major new features coming your way. Let’s dive into the details of these phones to find further.
Among these phones, Samsung S20 and S20 plus have been launched here in Nepal.
Samsung Nepal has also brought a trade-in offer with which you can get an additional Rs 5000 cash offer by giving old Samsung S series or Note series phone. They will do the best evaluation of the old phone later to offset the price of the new S20 | S20 Plus. Even after the pre-order date, they have been providing the exchange offer.

With the launch, Mr. Pranaya Ratna Sthapit, Head of Samsung Mobile Business Nepal said, “At Samsung, it’s our endeavor to deliver new experiences to our consumers. Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20+ re-imagines Video-graphy and photography. The technologies along with the sensors featured in this series of flagship devices allow the users to capture videos and photos with relatively ease”.
Galaxy S20 is the first phone from the S20 series. This is the tiniest one with basic features among all of them. This phone packs great battery, outstanding display, glorifying camera and many more.
The smallest Galaxy S20 has a glass body and comes in a dimension of 151.7 x 69.1 x 7.9mm. There are a great display and a tiny punch hole at the top of the display which doesn’t look distracting. The regular S20 is a true successor of Galaxy S10 and S10+ which was released a year earlier.
As for the design, there is a triple camera setup at the back, USB type C and speaker at the button and volume rocker and power button at the right. Samsung has finally removed the useless Bixby button from its flagship phones.
Samsung Galaxy S20 comes with a 6.2-inch display, which is a tiny bit bigger than last year’s 6.1-inch S10. The new and improved Samsung Galaxy S20 has a WQHD+ screen of 3040 x 1440 pixels of resolution.
There is a very impressive addition to being excited about the display of this handset – the new 120Hz refresh rate screen. Although it isn’t compatible with WQHD+ resolution, you can’t use the 120Hz refresh rate setting and WQHD+ resolution at the same time.
However, Samsung is offering a default resolution of Full HD+, it looks sharp enough for most tasks and saves battery. The touch-sensitivity on the S20 has been raised to 240Hz to make games more responsive, by sensing your finger touches on the screen at a much higher rate than earlier.
This is the place where we can find a significant improvement over the previous generation Galaxy S series phone. There are altogether 5 cameras on the phone and this is 2 more than that of S20. All the cameras are powered by AI to match people’s demand for best capture in every moment.
There are a lot of improvements over the camera and the first thing is Samsung has raised the pixel size from 1.4 microns on the S10 to 1.8, and, another, all the camera sensors are larger than previous.
The telephoto lens jumps from 12MP on the Galaxy S10 to 64MP and it produces 3x optical and 30x digital zoom to the table. Although there is a decrease in megapixel in the ultra-wide lens from 16MP to 12MP, we can see increased sensor size, which is more prominent. At the front, there is a 10MP selfie shooter with no significant improvement.
Furthermore, the Galaxy S20 is the first Samsung phone that records 8K video, which seems like overkill – but you can still crop the image from the video without losing any detail. That’s glorious news for content producers but you can only get 24fps video at 8K and you won’t be getting advanced Steady Stabilization on 8K or 4K video either.
Powering the phone is a brand new performing 7nm chip-set. The chip-set used on this phone is either Exynos 990 or Snapdragon 865 Soc based on the regions. But here in Nepal, it is the Exynos processor variant that is launched as always. The basic 8 GB RAM variant also provides better multitasking and smoother performance even with heavy duty apps. There is also support for micro-SD cards to save you from running out of space.
Samsung is working hard on its software department to improve the fluidity of the new powerful phones. One S20 runs of One UI 2.0 on top of Android 10. Samsung has been struggling really hard to get the perfect second version of its popular One UI out and they are providing this OS to as many devices as possible.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 has a 4,000mAh battery, which is a good side for a top-end smartphone, although there are plenty of devices that better that capacity. To runs the 120Hz or WQHD+ display, we’d expect this size of the battery and hope it powers the device throughout a day, and even more if you turn off these top features.
The phone comes with 25W fast charging via USB-C, and ‘Fast Wireless Charging 2.0’ as Samsung calls the alternative for wireless charging. The speed of this hasn’t been out but we expect it to be at around 20W. The Wireless Power Share feature is also available with improvements, letting you charge your Samsung devices and other with wireless charging support.
The Galaxy S20 is the normal flagship phone of 2020 which will be available to consumers to get 5G on their smartphones. Only 1% of smartphones sold in 2019 were 5G phones, and most were costly variants of 4G flagships.
The S20 also has a 5G-enabled by default in some regions. The download speed in 5G will be around 200Mbps on average, which is almost 6 times faster than what we are currently getting in 4G. But for a country like Nepal where there is no 5G, there will be 4G variant only. It is confirmed now that the S20 phones in Nepal are only 4G compatible.
The bigger variant of the S20, Galaxy S20 Plus comes with enhancements like top-notch display features, a high-resolution and great zoom camera, and a set of video capture features. The 5G connectivity is appreciable too.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus has a 6.7-inch screen, which is quite a leap from its ancestor’s 6.4 inches, though not really as big as the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 6.9-inch display. It comes with an AMOLED screen, with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera in the top-center of the display. Samsung says this cutout is 55% tinier than the punch-hole on the S10 range of phones and its hardly noticeable.
The display is quite impressive as always with 3200 x 1440 pixel resolution on its Wide Quad High-Definition Plus (WQHD+) display. S20 Plus also gets a display with a 120Hz refresh rate and this is twice as fast as a common phone screen. While it comes to the design, it has almost similar design aspects as that of S20.
Galaxy S20 Plus has a similar camera setup as that of S20 but with a significant improvement over the S10 Plus. Although the number of cameras is the same as compared to S10 Plus, you can find huge improvements.
The major improvements in the camera segment can be seen on the zoom camera. Ignore the S10’s 12MP telephoto camera: the S20 has a 64MP shooter with a telephoto lens that provides 3x optical zoom, as well as 30x digital zoom.
While this isn’t the biggest zoom capability ever there is still the S20 Ultra and its 10x optical and monstrous 100x digital. Until an, unless it is compared with Ultra, the camera is very versatile and allows you to take great shots.
S20 Plus is also powered by either 7nm Exynos 990 or Snapdragon 865 Chipset depending on the region. As always, the S20 phones in Nepal will have the Exynos Processor on it. The difference is it comes in three variants of RAM and storage – 12GB/128GB, 12GB/256GB, and 12GB/512GB. This too supports micro-SD cards.
This handset has quite capable 4500mAh battery which too supports fast charging and wireless charging. The capability of wireless charging and power share is the same as that of S20.
As mentioned earlier on S20, this phone is also capable of running 5G default in some countries while there is a 4G only variant for a country like Nepal (with only 4G coverage). The phone has a similar One UI 2.0 on top of Android 10.
The third phone launched on the Unpack Event is Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The name Ultra here depicts some of its awesomeness. In this handset, Samsung blends 5G speeds, 108MP photos, a 100x camera zoom, and a 6.9-inch display, 5000mAh battery to create a smartphone that’s going to turn heads.
With these top specs on a par with laptops, you have to pay more than any phones before. We will be covering this beast separately but it seems S20 Ultra will not land here in Nepal for now.
Samsung earns an abundance of admiration for truly managing to launch such great phones in the S20 lineup after Note 10.
