Arguably...a lot. Starting with the S20 Plus - the cheaper of these two devices - you're getting Samsung's top-end specs. 120Hz AMOLED 6.7-inch display. 4500mAh battery and a slightly overkill 12GB Ram processor.
Then Samsung crammed in an enormous amount of camera features: wide angle, ultra-wide, telescopic lens, depth vision and that barely cracks the surface of it. But at £999/$1199, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus isn't actually that expensive for what you're getting.
Then, there's the unlocked SIM-free Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. We're going to cut straight to the chase here, the S20 Ultra has an RRP of $1399/£1199/AU$1999...yep, it's not cheap.
And while the Galaxy Ultra is one of the most expensive phones out there (folding handsets excluded), the specs prove why. The battery is a massive 5000mAh, there's 16GB Ram inside and the display comes in at a mammoth 6.9-inches.
Then the camera. On top of what the S20 Plus can offer, the Galaxy S20 Ultra has stepped up with AI pixel pairing technology for the crispest of photos and a 100x zoom for your very very long distance shots.
To make the high-end prices of both of these handsets slightly easier to bare, Samsung will also throw in a free pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds+ with any pre-order deal before March 10.
