There are also suggestions that the new Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 could be out before the Galaxy S11 devices.
There are rumors galore on the exact launch date fixed for the next set of flagship smartphones from the South Korean major, Samsung Electronics. While rumors had circulated earlier that the date of the launch is February 18, 2020, the latest report suggests the Samsung Galaxy S11 (or is it S20?) and the other two models could be unveiled a week earlier, on February 11, 2020. There are also rumors that the company may release the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 even before the Galaxy S11 flagships. These are still unconfirmed reports.
There are Different Versions on the Naming of the Model as Well
The opinion is divided on what Samsung is going to call these phones in the first place. In the normal course, it should be the Samsung Galaxy S11, Galaxy S11+, and Galaxy S11e. Some say the company may switch to calling them the Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20e. Come to think of it, this might just fall in place since the model released in the year 2020 will be the Samsung Galaxy S20 and this can be carried on in the future too, making it easy to identify. We await the official announcement to confirm this.
Known Specifications of the Models
From whatever has been revealed so far from the usually reliable sources, the Samsung Galaxy S11/S20 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC processor. The South Korean company prefers to sell its smartphones with its in-house Exynos processors wherever it can, including its home market, South Korea. Accordingly, the S11/S20 flagships are likely to be sporting the Exynos 990 SoC with the suitable 5G modem added. The 5G support may be included only for those markets where the services have started.
The display sizes are being predicted to be 6.7-inch for the Samsung Galaxy S11/S20, 6.9-inch for the Galaxy S11+/S20+ and 6.4-inch for the Galaxy S11e/S20e.
The camera section will be one of the highlights with the 108MP primary shooter leading the pack with a 48MP telephoto lens also included in the configuration. The other specs are likely to include a 5,000mAh battery and the latest Android 10 OS with the One UI 2.0 skin.
Second Foldable Phone’s Release Advanced?
As mentioned above, there are fresh rumors indicating that Samsung has advanced the launch date for the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2. It may be recalled that the first foldable device was unveiled in 2019 along with the Galaxy S10 series flagships, though there were issues later and the company had to pull back. This year, the market watchers feel there are other foldable phone models being released around the same time and Samsung wants to capture the market first.
On most of these details above, it is better to wait for an official word from Samsung.
