While the device has been kept somewhat under wraps for now, it will likely be revealed at a major event from the tech giant next week.

In that event, samsung upgrade new is expected to release its next flagship phone, the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus.

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Plus was leaked in images well in advance of the device’s actual unveiling and has been one of many Samsung-related leaks

According to leaks from XDA Developers the S20 Plus – which is the larger version of Samsung’s flagship phones that are slated to be released in February – will definitively have a high-end 120 HZ display which had previously only been rumored.

The 120 HZ display will offer a high refresh rate but will only work with the phone’s standard resolution as opposed to the WQHD – quad high – setting that clocks in at 1440p as opposed to 1080p.

Additionally, XDA says that the phone will come with a traditional headphone jack and as well as an in-display ‘ultrasonic’ fingerprint scanner.

The latter feature marks a significant confirmation as Samsung has attempted to include in-display fingerprint-reading technology in the past to notably mixed results.
