Samsung Malaysia just launched a new colour option for the Samsung Galaxy S20+. Previously offered in Cloud Blue, Cosmic Grey, and Cosmic Black, the S20+ is now available in a striking Aura Red colourway. In fact, it is the only one in the S20 series to get this new colour option.
Compared to the other colour options available in the Galaxy S20 series, the Aura Red colourway is by far the most eye-catching one. This is actually an exclusive model in the South Korean market for telco operator KT. Over there, it’s actually referred to as “Jennie Red,” which is named after the popular Blackpink member.
Beyond the new shade, the Aura Red Galaxy S20+ is just like the standard model. It’s still packing a fast and vibrant 6.7-inch 3200 x 1440 Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. There’s also the Infinity-O hole-punch cutout at the top of the display for the 10MP f/2.2 selfie camera.
Under the hood of the Galaxy S20+ for our market is none other than the Samsung Exynos 990 chipset. It may not be quite as popular as Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC, but make no mistake: the Exynos 990 is no slouch. In our review of the S20 Ultra, we remarked just how capable Samsung’s own chipset is.
Besides that, the Galaxy S20+ also has a sophisticated quad camera system. It’s made up of a 12MP f/1.8 main sensor, a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle shooter, a 64MP f/2.0 telephoto lens, and a DepthVision time-of-flight camera. Collectively, this camera configuration allows the S20+ to do up to 30x digital zoom.
Battery life of the Galaxy S20+ should be very good as well. Equipped with a generous 4,500mAh battery, it will be able to return (at the very least) a day’s worth of use on a single charge. The power efficiency of the 7nm Exynos 990 chip also helps in this regard.
Other specifications of the Galaxy S20+ include 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot for further storage expansion, and an in-screen ultrasonic fingerprint sensor.
The Samsung Galaxy S20+ in Aura Red is now available for purchase in Malaysia from Samsung’s online store. Just like the regular S20+, this striking new colourway of the flagship phone costs RM3,999.
