This year’s Samsung Galaxy phones may be called the S20 and S20+
Telecom giant Samsung is set to launch a new set of flagship Galaxy phones according to a listing on a Thai Government website.
The new flagships Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20+ will be a considerable upgrade from the S10,S10+ and Galaxy Note 10.
Tech grapevine has it that there may be a third release which will be a premium, high-end option.
Interestingly, Samsung appears to have curiously skipped some numbers, moving from the S10 and S10+ of last year to the S20 models.
An upgraded model of the Galaxy-fold from Samsung that was recalled due to make-defects might also make an appearance during this year’s release.
Samsung did not immediately return a request for comment. The company is holding an official keynote on February 11th in San Francisco where it will unveil new devices.
Numerous leaks have circulated online about the phones, saying the new phones have 3-4 rear cameras and bigger screens and batteries.
A third phone is rumored to be called the S20 Ultra.The pressure could be on for Samsung, which faces many global rivals including Apple, Huawei, Oppo and others.
“The company needs to hold its position in the challenging premium segment,” Gerrit Schneemann, senior analyst of mobile handsets at IHS Markit, told CNN Business.
“A new generation of stand-out flagships is needed for Samsung to fend off the competition.”
