Apart from Samsung’s 8K TVs, the Galaxy S20 series is the company’s debut smartphone 8K product. 8K smartphones imply that videos and images captured with high-resolution smartphone will appear sharper, realer ever than a regular 4k device, although by physical eyes comparison, they may appear the same.

However, 108MP camera only available on Galaxy S20 Ultra. Galaxy S20 and S20+ have 64MP cameras.
