Samsung has added a new option to access the power options from the UI itself. This option is available for all the new Galaxy phones running the latest version of Android and Samsung’s UI.
It’s very easy to access, so if you are not able to get to this page by long-pressing the button, you can try this.

Ask Bixby To Do It For You
This option is a bit more work, but after you set it up once, in the future you can just ask Bixby to restart or turn off your Samsung S20 for you.
Open the Bixby app and if you have never logged into the app with your Samsung account, do so.
Setup the Bixby app for voice recognition and once that’s done you can initiate Bixby by saying “Hi Bixby”.
It works even while the phone is locked and sitting on a table away from you.
Say “Hi Bixby” and ask it to turn off your Samsung phone.
It will ask for confirmation, once confirmed from your end, the phone will be turned off.
That’s how to turn off Samsung S20 and any Samsung Galaxy phone for that matter.
