    In the last couple of weeks, there has been a crazy amount of leaks about Samsung's Galaxy S20 series. We have seen multiple reports and rumors talking about the spec sheet for the three Galaxy S20 models, and earlier today, we saw the first report hinting at the possible pricing for the upcoming flagship. Now, another report has arrived with details on the Galaxy S20's availability.

    Galaxy S20 release date reportedly set a month after Unpacked

    Sources speaking to Frandroid say the Galaxy S20 lineup will hit retail stores in France on March 13. And considering France is an important market for Samsung, we can assume that the same date would apply for the release in other countries around the world. Some markets, like the US and South Korea, could see the devices shipping to customers a day or two before they go on sale globally, at least if we consider what happened with the Galaxy S10 series last year.

    The pre-order period for the Galaxy S20 will reportedly run from February 11 to March 13. If the mid-March release date is accurate, then the Galaxy S20 series will go on sale a full month after it is unveiled. That's a considerably longer waiting period than we have seen with flagship Galaxy smartphones in recent years. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 went on sale 16 days after they were announced, and the Galaxy S9 and S9+ hit retail shelves around 20 days after launch.

    Of course, things may turn out to be different in reality, as unofficial information can often turn out to a bit (or a lot) off the mark. Thankfully, we will not have to wait too long before Samsung tells us the real prices and release dates for its 2020 flagship: The Galaxy S20 Unpacked launch is set to take place on February 11, which is a little under three weeks away.
