Going by all the leaks and rumors in the last couple of weeks, it’s pretty clear that the Galaxy S20 Ultra will have a leg up or two over the regular Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20+ as far as the spec sheet is concerned. The S20 Ultra could be the only one to feature a microSD slot, Samsung’s new 108MP camera, and possibly even a 40MP front camera. And, well, the top-end Galaxy S20 model could also be the only one to come with 5G support as standard.A few months ago, we revealed that the Samsung is developing firmware for the LTE variants of the Galaxy S20 and S20+. That led to some of our readers wondering why LTE variants exist when the new Exynos and Snapdragon chips have 5G connectivity built-in. If you had been hopeful that Samsung would end up scrapping those LTE variants, then you will be disappointed. A support page for the Galaxy S20+’s LTE variant has popped up on Samsung’s Latin America website, pretty much confirming that 5G connectivity is not going to be standard across the lineup.The non-5G Galaxy S20+ features model number SM-G985F, while the 5G model is SM-G986F. The regular Galaxy S20 will also have both LTE and 5G variants, featuring model numbers SM-G980F and SM-G981F. Samsung will probably sell only the 5G variants in major markets like the US and its home country and launch the LTE variants in more price-sensitive markets. We’ll know for sure once the Galaxy S20 series goes official next month and Samsung starts releasing local availability details in countries around the world.
