It seems Samsung may be planning to launch the Galaxy S11 on a date much earlier than what has been rumored until this point. A couple of months ago, we had heard from one of our sources that the Galaxy S11 would be unveiled sometime in the third week of February next year. Recently, February 18 was suggested by well-known leakster Ice universe as the actual date for the Galaxy S11’s Unpacked event, and now, Israeli website Girafa has published a report saying the announcement may happen on February 11.
The Galaxy S11 launch will reportedly take place in San Francisco, USA, where the Galaxy S10 was unveiled as well. If the report is accurate, it would mean the Galaxy S11 will go official a couple of weeks ahead of MWC 2020, which is set to kick off on February 24. It would give Samsung extra time to keep the limelight on its new flagship before other manufacturers start showing off what they have to offer, and considering everything the Galaxy S11 is expected to bring to the table, we can’t say it’s a bad idea.
However, according to rumors, the Galaxy Fold 2 will share the spotlight with the Galaxy S11 at Samsung’s next Unpacked event. The Galaxy Fold was also unveiled alongside the Galaxy S10 earlier this year, so it would not be surprising to see Samsung’s next foldable phone make an appearance with the Galaxy S11. As usual, everything is speculation and rumor until proven otherwise, so we would advise you to keep the proverbial grain of salt handy.
