We're less than a month away from Samsung's Unpacked event on February 11 where it will unveil the Galaxy S20. More than a few reports now have backed up the theory that the Galaxy S11 is actually going to launch as the Galaxy S20.
The three models are now expected to be called the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Samsung will likely offer 5G variants of all three models. The images that have been leaked online today appear to be of the Galaxy S20+ 5G.
First leaked Galaxy S20+ 5G images surface
From what we know about the Galaxy S20 so far, the Galaxy S20+ will likely feature a 6.7-inch display. It will most certainly be an Infinity-O panel with a centered punch hole for the front camera. The Galaxy S20 Ultra may have a 6.9-inch display. We have already confirmed that the panel will have a super smooth 120Hz refresh rate.
The images that were leaked online today by XDA Developers appear to show a Galaxy S20+ 5G booting up. We also get a picture of the back with a rather ironic sticker cautioning against leaking information. As expected, the Galaxy S20 will end a signature Samsung design element by opting for a vertical placement of the camera setup.
The handset appears to have a quad-camera system at the back with a ToF sensor and flash. The accompanying report suggests that the Galaxy S20+ will come with a new 12MP 1.8μm primary sensor, which means that Samsung's 108MP sensor might only be available on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The camera setup will also include an ultra-wide, telephoto and possibly a macro camera as well.
There's nothing really shocking about the Galaxy S20's design. It appears to be quite similar to the renders leaked previously. However, the source quoted in this report claims that the Infinity-O display feels less curved than before, almost flat even. A presumption is drawn that Samsung may have used 2.5D glass instead of its curved glass. That's not something that will make a huge difference for most customers, though.
The US is reportedly set to get only 5G variants of the next flagship while the 4G variant will be offered in other markets. Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S20 at its Unpacked event on February 11. We'll be on the ground in San Francisco to bring you all of the latest developments from the event.
