Design and Display

The footprint of Galaxy A20s is nearly identical to the Galaxy A20. But when it comes to personal look, the newer model has a shiny, iridescent hue on the back as opposed to the muted look of the older model. There’s also a significant change in display quality. You may find the Galaxy A20s less saturated and vibrant, due to the switch from Super AMOLED to IPS LCD.

Compared to the Exynos 7884, the Snapdragon 450 on the Galaxy A20s is slightly more powerful and efficient. While the performance difference is hardly noticeable in day-to-day tasks, the expanded 4GB/64GB memory combo makes the gap substantial.


On paper, the three main sensors of Galaxy A20s seems to be huge compared to the two main sensors of Galaxy A20. Practically speaking, it’s not. From 13MP main + 5MP ultrawide, the ultrawide sensor is now 8MP and the 5MP is now a depth sensor. That said, there will be small improvements in photo quality. As for the selfie camera, it’s the same 8MP sensor.

Battery and Charging

Nothing has changed with the battery and charging — rated at 4000mAh and 15W, respectively.


Samsung Galaxy A20 is currently retailing for P9,990 in the Philippines. Just like the rest of the new Galaxy A series, we expect the Galaxy A20s to replace the old model for the same price. It’s just a matter of “if” or “when”. Because right now, there’s no reason to get the Galaxy A20 anymore.
