Samsung showcases the Galaxy S20 Ultra and its camera capability in a new ad, that focuses on the “revolutionary, 5G ready camera”. “In 2020, photography has a new chapter. Introducing Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G” onscreen lines read in the opening of the 30-second spot, which shows off the revolutionary 8K video snap with 100x space zoom and 5G to share it all.
The soundtrack music is “Little Bitty Pretty One” by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers.
The Galaxy S20 Ultra, which is Samsung’s biggest Android phone, features a 7nm chipset, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of internal storage, a 5,000mAh battery, a 6.9-inch display, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a quad-lens rear camera array offering 10x optical and 100x digital zoom, 8K video recording, and 5G antennas that enable higher peak speeds than even the new Galaxy S20. It also boasts a new “single-take mode,” which captures a variety of shots over a 10-second span, from photos to ultra-wides, to portraits, hyperlapse video, regular video, and more.
The Galaxy S20 line-up, including the S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra, was unveiled on February 11, at the annual Galaxy Unpacked hardware event in San Francisco, where the brand also unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip, its latest folding device, which was teased during Sunday night’s Oscars broadcast.
