Samsung to release Galaxy S20 series smartphones on 11 February 2020

Dutch technology blog LetsGoDigital quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that as a follow-up to the Galaxy S10 series, the highly anticipated Galaxy S20 series smartphones will meet with you on February 11. The well-known leaker “Ice Universe” also pointed out that Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S10, S20 + and S20 Ultra models in the first half of 2020. Therefore, logically, the next-generation “Galaxy S21” series will also correspond to the release year of 2021.

At first we were a little curious about such naming rules. After all, the company has been using numbers for many years in succession, and every year the Mobile World Congress (MWC) follows the established routine.

From the original Galaxy S released in 2010, to the Galaxy S8 / S9 in 2017/2018, to the Galaxy S10 in 2019.

Originally we thought that 2020 should be the “Galaxy S11”, but if Samsung decides to change the naming rules after the tenth anniversary, we will not be too surprised.

A European retail store staff member told LetsGoDigital with confidence that the next generation of Galaxy S series smartphones will indeed be sold under the name of Galaxy S20.

In addition, according to exclusive sources from Samsung insiders and a major European retailer, Samsung will enable the same S20 naming rule for its 2020 Galaxy S series smartphones as the year of release.

Earlier this week, Samsung officially announced that it will hold the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 launch event in San Francisco on February 11, 2020 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time.

Given that the opening of the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2020) is February 24, Samsung will certainly not forget to continue to raise the popularity of the Galaxy S20 series smartphones.

Except for the Galaxy S20, S20 +, and S20 Ultra, the company’s second folding screen smartphone is likely not to be called the Galaxy Fold 2.

After all, its folding method is very different from the original model (closer to the Moto Razr’s clamshell shape than the tablet type), and foreign media speculated that Samsung might use the name “Galaxy Flip“.
