Samsung recently announced a bevy of new smartphones, three of which should be highly interesting to photographers, with features like a 108-megapixel sensor, 8K video, water resistance, and more.
The Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra were recently revealed, and they sound like the stuff of dreams for photographers looking to carry a capable phone in their pocket.
