The only thing that’s little tricky with these devices is the price range that goes as high as $1,499 for high-end variants, making them one of the most expensive smartphones available right now.

Interestingly we have yet another 5G enabled device in our list from Samsung, and this time around its even more powerful and feature-packed than the other devices.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is most definitely one of the most expensive and power-packed 5G enabled smartphones available in 2020. The device packs cutting-edge features, inspiring specifications, and tons of power.

It comes with a top-of-the-line 6.9-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The most noticeable feature of the device is certainly its camera system that comes at 108 MP main camera with the mind-wobbling 100x digital zoom capability. As you can expect, the device is powered by the top-of-the-line chipset, so you definitely won’t miss out on power for that sake.

Honestly, while the Galaxy S20 Ultra may be the most powerful 5G connectivity smartphone available in the market in 2020, it definitely isn’t the perfect phone. To start-off the price is way too expensive for the liking of the majority of the users, and compare it to the baseline models of Galaxy S20 (which all comes with 5G connectivity), there isn’t any significant update (apart from the imposing camera system).
