Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra vs. the competition: The most megapixels

With a screen size just shy of seven inches, it’s hard not to just call the Galaxy S20 Ultra a full-fledged tablet. (We never really liked the word “phablet” here.) Albeit a tablet with a quad rear camera setup containing a 108-megapixel telephoto shooter. But a big screen and powerful camera aren’t all the Ultra has to offer. We’ve got a rundown of the relevant specs below, especially as compared to some of the other big vying for your attention this spring. Check back later this month for our full review.
