Samsung confirms ‘Hubble’, ‘Bloom’ codenames for Galaxy S20, Fold 2

Though already rumored, Samsung is now confirming the codenames ‘Hubble’ and ‘Bloom’ for devices coming to its Unpacked event in February. These codenames, of course, belong to the upcoming Galaxy S20 and clamshell Galaxy Fold 2 devices.

Samsung confirms ‘Hubble’ and ‘Bloom’ devices

Last autumn, rumors surfaced that the camera of the Galaxy S11 might be called ‘Hubble’. Since then, we’ve suspected that this is in fact the codename of the upcoming Galaxy S20-series, replacing the earlier Picasso codename for what was initially to be the Galaxy S11. This suspicion is now confirmed, alongside the ‘Bloom’ codename belonging to Samsung’s clamshell foldable.

In Germany, Samsung has launched a pre-registration campaign for the upcoming Unpacked event on February 11. The guys at GalaxyClub were surprised to find that the campaign’s confirmation page mentions both ‘Hubble’ and ‘Bloom’ in its URL. It is the first time these names have surfaced on Samsung’s own website, though the ‘Bloom’ device earlier made an appearance as the SM-F700F.

Aside from the revealing confirmation page, the pre-registration page itself asks users to share what they find important in a smartphone. From similar campaigns, we know all of the available points are attributes Samsung thinks fit its upcoming devices. We see items like entertainment features, high-end technology, productivity, camera, and design.

Interestingly, a long-lasting battery is not mentioned, despite the surprisingly large batteries Samsung is expected to use for the Galaxy S20 series. Perhaps the 120Hz refresh rate of the display will negate any battery life gains. Or the PR team responsible for the questionnaire simply did not want to overload users with too many choices.

We will learn all about the upcoming ‘Hubble’ and ‘Bloom’ devices on February 11, when Samsung will finally reveal both. Until then, more rumors are sure to surface, so keep checking back here regularly.

What are people’s excitement level for the s20? I just admit I have zero right now… Very strange from a huge Samsung fan who has had every s model on day release apart from the S5 &9. Is it because I find my s10 being so good there is no need to replace it or the fact I am put off with the over sizing of these slabs. The biggest worry would be the s20 small or previous labeled s11e model would have been my only choice will be so under spec compared to the others. The leaks also points… Read more »
