Since Samsung released the Galaxy S10 last year, it wouldn’t have surprised anyone if next year’s flagship was named the Galaxy S11. That’s already what it’s being called online but is it possible that Samsung is looking to shake things up a little?
There is some speculation that the forthcoming Galaxy S flagship series may in fact be known as the Galaxy S20 instead. We have not seen any concrete evidence to support the theory up to now, which is the reason why it remains just a theory for the time being.
@HarmlessKarl, the creator of case manufacturer Schnail, posted a screenshot of what appears to be a communication of some kind about another Samsung flagship’s name. It indicates that the handsets which were formerly known as the Galaxy S11e, Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11+ will actually be called the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
There’s no other proof to back this theory at the moment. Accessory manufacturers do get some information before a handset’s launch. That’s why we see a lot of unofficial leaves escape in the days leading up to the launch. So it is within the realm of possibility that the case maker might have been informed about a name change.
Maybe Samsung just wants to align the title of its flagship series with the start of a new decade, or maybe it has not made a change after all. What’s in a name, anyway? It’s not like there is going to be a radical difference in what we know about the Galaxy S11 so far. Besides, the Galaxy S11 moniker was never officially confirmed, and Samsung can very well determine what it needs to call its next flagship.
While we’re on the subject of the Galaxy S20, there was also a tweet to this effect from notable tech leakster @UniverseIce about a week ago (Source). How many of you would agree that where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire?
As far, we are looking for February 11 which set for the Unpacked 2020 event and Samsung to reveal its most anticipated flagship device of the year. That doesn’t mean we don’t care for Galaxy Note 11, Samsung just launched Note10 lite this month. There might be a possibility that Samsung can prepone its launch time from the conventional schedule of August launch.
