Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service is currently available in 34 cities, 17 stadiums and seven indoor arenas, with many more being lit up throughout 2020.
A brand new camera system: Designed for the way you live, the Galaxy S20 introduces an entirely new camera system—powered by AI and Samsung’s biggest image sensor yet—to bring out the best in every image and every moment.

For videographers, the devices can shoot in 8K so users can capture their world in true-to-life color and quality. Thanks to Super Steady’s anti-rolling stabilization and AI motion analysis, even the bumpiest videos look like they were shot using a gimbal. What’s more? You can upload your 8K videos directly to YouTube using Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband. And, Use Single Take2 on the Galaxy S20 to capture a number of photo and videos, such as live focus, cropped, ultra wide and more, and use AI to recommend the best shot.
Striking design: The Galaxy S20 features Samsung’s gorgeous Infinity-O Display that gives you a cinematic viewing experience in the palm of your hand. The new 120Hz refresh rate display gives you lightning fast touch response and super smooth graphics. Both phones include an Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for added security and an unobtrusive, centered front-facing camera cut-out for a sleek look.
Down to business.
Beyond the ability to connect to Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network to help run your business, the Galaxy S20 also offers great security. The Galaxy S20 series is protected by Knox — the military-grade mobile security platform that protects the device from the chip level through the software level.
