Just a bit surprised that the 48MP Sony IMX586 is used as the telephoto... it's quite competent as the main camera by itself.
A message to all smartphone makers releasing huge phones: try your best to make it weigh below 200g... that's the 'psychological barrier' when it comes to one hand usage.
Hopefully, in future with thinner solid state batteries or some other kind of material (new metal alloy, graphene, ceramic etc) the weight of the phone can be reduced.
Also, it's about time to make smartphone cameras good enough to steal GoPro's lunch. That means super stable video shots in turbulent conditions, prioritizing build durability and shock/waterproof similar to Casio watches.

Please no Exynos. SD865 or no sale. Thanks.
By the way, the best Sony camera sensor now is the IMX686. Sony released a preview trailer of it.
The S20 Ultra has the IMX586. Let's see which future phone comes with the IMX686 camera sensor.

Even defend the actions because who cares if they are being ripped off as long as it meets most of their needs
AnonD-754814, 18 Jan 2020Exynos 990 shouldn't be able to match SD865. Specially the GPU.Just because you are a hater and don't know how to fact check yourself doesn't discredit the real facts.
Why can't be matched? In gpu or not? Did you see one thing about the new Mali g77? What's it's capable of or even anandtechs projections of it? Are you even aware that in about 4 or 5 out of the 10 gens that exynos has had better gpu? One of them powervr not Mali though.
And you do realize that either Samsung will use a 3rd gen large cpu core which would be improved from before right? Or use a modified version of a77 which will at least match the ones upcoming in the s865.
So where can it not even at least be matched??

You lose ROMs by having a us Snapdragon unfortunately.
FM radio is shut off anyway. And yeah in most generations snap had better gpu. But about 4 exynos actually did.
And you can't compare the efficiency of these gpus until we see some results because the Mali g77 gpu is a serious upgrade in power and efficiency.
Jaeger, 18 Jan 2020SD800, 801, 805, 835, 845, 855. Six of ten generations Qualcomm has made better chipsets.Snapdragon wasn't better until 845. And that's not simply because they were just better. It's in part due to the strides in efficiency Qualcomm had finally starting making and Samsung switching from their usual custom cores to all new ground zero larger cores.

And yet im still missing my mate 9.
The only thing keeping me from going back is the camera quality.

I was responding to the guy who said that the Mi Note 10 was the jack of all trades simply because of its 108MP camera. If you want to go by raw specs alone and want a no-compromise smartphone then the Ultra can't be beaten. I have no doubt that it'll be the new DxOMark champ.

You're absolutely right!
The width, not height is the key to convenience and they stuppidly remove and make even narrower 20:9...
And to add salt to injury, Samsung only give NEW TECHS to humongous 6.9" variant, which mean ordinary people with normal hands basically forced to accept S20 variants with similar specs of S10 !!
Hahahaha.... Don't be sh333ps and let's boycott Samsung and let them know they can't dictated us to swallow everything they throw at you.

My guess is the Ultra will be the new top dog while the other two will be in the top 10, maybe even higher.

I don't like them all, but they have thrown in everything to that device. My frustration is the limits given to the regular and plus variants.
Samsung S20 and S20 Plus have only 12 mp main camera. 8K video requires at least 30 mp for each frame. So these two models can't shoot 8K for real
