Samsung Galaxy S20 Reveal On February 11: Everything We Know So Far
If you have been following smartphone news, you might know that the first flagship smartphone of this year is releasing next month. Samsung has revealed that its Galaxy S20 series is to be announced on February 11.
Well, you would ask why the next Galaxy S series is named as Galaxy S20 series, and before you think that is a typo, it is not. It is because Samsung has decided to change the naming pattern of its Galaxy S series. Since we are in the decade of 20s, Samsung wants to refresh its lineup with a Galaxy S20 series after last year’s Galaxy S10 series.
It is speculated that Samsung would continue the same for Galaxy Note lineup. So the next series is expected to be the Galaxy Note 20 series.
As far as the Galaxy S20 series is concerned, we know that there is much anticipation regarding it. We are here to tell you about all you can expect from these devices.
First of all, it is revealed that there will be three new smartphones in the Galaxy S20 series. They will be the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Yes, as you might have already guessed, Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the top-of-the-line flagship smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S20 series specifications
Regarding the Galaxy S20 series, we are seeing reports that the devices will have a variable refresh rate display. The Galaxy S20 Ultra will have a 120Hz Quad HD+ display. On the other hand, the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy S20+ are expected to have a 90Hz Quad HD display.
All the three smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor which comes with a separate 5G modem. All these devices are also said to come with global 5G support. We sense that they will have 4G variants for specific markets where 5G is not available yet.
In terms of looks, we have seen renders of the Galaxy S20 series from Onleaks. The leaked renders show that there will be a rectangular camera module on the back which will be bigger than the iPhone 11 Pro’s setup.
Inside it, there will be up to four camera sensors which include: a sizeable 108MP camera sensor, a telephoto lens, an ultra-wide lens and a depth sensor. It is also rumoured that the Samsung Galaxy S20 series will have up to 10x optical zoom. This suggests that a dedicated sensor for zooming will also be included.
On the other hand, you can say goodbye to the headphone jack for as it is believed that none of the devices will have a 3.5mm jack. It is also expected that the devices will run Android 10 out of the box based on the One UI 2.1, which is Samsung’s new custom Android skin after Touchwiz.
Samsung Galaxy S20 series pricing
While we don’t have any leaks regarding the price at the moment, we can take a good guess from last year’s Galaxy S10 series as to what the prices could be.
Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S10 series started with the Galaxy S10e, which was priced in the US at $750. Now, you should note that this year’s Galaxy S20 is essentially a Galaxy S20e as well so we expect the Galaxy S20 to start at $750. For the Galaxy S20+, we expect Samsung to follow last year’s pricing. Hence the device might start at $900, which was what the Galaxy S10+ would have cost you at launch.
As for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, we see no reason why Samsung would not price it $1000. The smartphone is expected to have better cameras, better display as well as unique software features.
Samsung Galaxy S20 series Indian pricing and availability
We have seen that Samsung usually brings its flagship devices here two weeks after the global launch. Considering the Galaxy S20 series is launching on February 11 in the US, we can say that the smartphones will be available in India by the last week of February.
Regarding the Indian price of Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Samsung might announce the Galaxy S20 in India around the Rs. 60,000 mark whereas the Galaxy S20+ could cost you Rs. 70,000 for the base variant and Galaxy S20 Ultra might be priced at Rs. 80,000.
