Moving from a Galaxy S8 to a Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will mean a big boost in terms of performance, and in terms of size. The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G has a 6.9-inch AMOLED QUAD HD+ display, which is in comparison to the 5.8-inch display on the Galaxy S8. The performance improvements come as a result of going from the Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM to a Snapdragon 865 with up to 16GB of RAM. You would also go from 64GB of internal storage to options for up to 512GB of internal storage, and from 4G LTE to support for sub6 and mmWave 5G. Other notable improvements include better battery life and an improved camera setup on the front and rear.
