Samsung might use premium material more likes of iPhone in designing the upcoming Galaxy S20 Ultra. In order to keep the status of a premium device, the company will make it heavier and expensive.
The information on Samsung using premium material in Galaxy S20 Ultra is leaked by a famous leaker Max Weinbach who hinted “Stainless Steel” which suggests that Samsung will use Stainless Steel Frame instead of aluminum.
However, the authenticity of the information cannot be challenged at the moment and you can still consider it rumor or a report, but Weinbach has been famous in leaking correct information and he has been posting information regarding Galaxy S20 for a while now.
Stainless Steel is expensive and makes things heavier when compared to aluminum, it is not the material that is used in smartphones out there but a few including iPhone X, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11 Pro Max. All these devices are expensive and heavy.
Previously, Nokia used Stainless Steel in Nokia 8 Sirocco in 2018. If Samsung goes with stainless steel for the high-end Galaxy S20 device then it will have a more premium look and of course heavier than other S20 devices, it will probably come with heavier price-tag as well. Samsung is holding an event on February 11 which is going to be a launch event for sure, along with some other device including Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, and Galaxy Buds Plus. Until then stay focused for more updates.
