Samsung Galaxy S20 series has been a part of rumours and leaks for a couple of months and now latest rumours and leaks have brought us images as well as evidence that Samsung is going to name it Galaxy S20 instead of Galaxy S11.
By going through all leaked images, Samsung Galaxy S20 is expected to be loaded with an enormous battery (most probably 4000mAh). The XDA Developers, however, indicated that the Galaxy S20 Plus variant will hold a 4500mAh battery and 5G model is most likely to hit shelves with a whopping 5000mAh battery.
Though massive battery means you’re going to use it all day long but it has seen that the upcoming smartphone will be more powerful overall i.e. biggest display with punchy and vivid colours to consume more battery. SamMobile is a well-known source that predicts a lot about Next Generation Smartphones and in terms of Galaxy S20, SamMobile has suggested that we will get Snapdragon 865 Chipset with a clock speed of 1.8GHz.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Series Release Date and Pricing
Going a little back into past, Samsung announces its S phones in late February when after Mobile World Congress. The S10 arrived on February 20th whereas S9 hit stores back in February 25th 2018. In terms of Samsung Galaxy S20 series release date,
Samsung has already sent out press invites on January 4th which will be held a week before MWC in San Francisco. Pricing leaks are yet to appear but taking S10 series pricing details into account, expecting Galaxy S20 to be priced in between $1299-1499 wouldn’t be wrong.
Everything We Have Heard So Far
- Samsung Galaxy S20 Series Name
Very much like last year’s Samsung Galaxy S10 series, Samsung is planning to launch again three different devices named Samsung Galaxy S20 (standard), S20 Pro or S20 Plus 5G and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.
The earlier rumours had suggested that Samsung planned to launch three devices named Samsung S11E, S11 and S11 Plus but the latest leaks hew a quite closer to what Apple did with its iPhone 11 back in 2019.
As we have mentioned above, we have got our hands on Samsung’s revealed images thanks to Weinbach. All these are supposed images of Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus that have fallen in line with guesses. According to revealed images, Samsung Galaxy S20 series will follow a design of Samsung Galaxy A71 that arrived on shelves last month.
Based on a report shared by 9to5Google, Samsung has a habit of following design principles of A series for its S series and Weinbach’s prediction seems to be on the money. The revealed pictures show small bezels around with a prominent chin on the bottom.
As we have described in one of our earlier posts, a centred punch-hole camera is back for video calls and selfies with your loved ones. There’s a domino-shaped camera setup on the back, consisting of 4 cameras and a microphone or sensor that seems to be a light. If the pictures are real, they are probably not the ugliest phone on the market, but they do not win any awards either.
- Other Specs
The Samsung Galaxy S20 series is right around the corner and well-recognised sources have started adding their educated guesses in terms of display, battery, camera and other components. Some sources have suggested that Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus will be equipped with 6.7-inches Dynamic AMOLED display and remaining devices are likely to hold a display size in between 5.8-inches to 6.7-inches.
Thus, Samsung doesn’t seem to put a major change in terms of display but indeed in the battery department. As far as Galaxy S20 series cameras are concerned, Samsung has been struggling a lot to compete with all Chinese giants by offering a handsome number of cameras than ever before. XDA-developers have revealed that Samsung Galaxy S20 is going to be loaded with a 108MP primary sensor which is already on par with Xiaomi’s Mi Mix Alpha as well as Mi Note 10.
Weinbach added its educated guess that it’s not yet confirmed but Galaxy S20 Plus will house two 12MP camera sensors outback alongside a 64MP camera and ToF camera. The Ice Universe has said that a punch-hole camera on the front will be positioned in the centre of the phone but this time it’ll be a smaller as compared to its predecessor.
