Final Galaxy S20 Ultra rumors: 5G and $850 price tag

Samsung will finally reveal its new Galaxy phones on Tuesday, February 11th, rumored to be called the Galaxy S20 5G, S20 Plus 5G, and S20 Ultra 5G.

One of the most critical aspects of these upcoming phones is that they all seem to be 5G handsets. That may finally bring 5G to the forefront of the consumer cellphone market.

While the most advanced version of the S20 phones may come in just over $1000, a listing on Amazon AE for the United Arab Emirates shows the base model with an $850 price tag.

Legislators hope that the hearings will lead to rules that everyone can agree on.
