Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20 Series is finally official!, Gadget Pilipinas, Gadget Pilipinas

When Samsung launched its Galaxy S20 series back in February, I was personally surprised at the number of new features and upgraded tech that they put on the devices. It’s like the company’s top priority was to fire every bullet they had in the gun to impress.

Of course, a device that doesn’t hold back at trying everything to be the best is great for us consumers.
