Samsung’s next flagship smartphone

The South Korean mobile maker company, Samsung, is all set to launch its next-gen Galaxy smartphone on February 11 at an event in San Francisco. Reports says that Samsung has chosen the S20 as the name of its next Galaxy S flagship, instead of the S11.

Recently, Tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) shared a tweet saying that instead of opting for S11e, S11 and S11+ nomenclature, the South Korean company would opt for S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra naming for its flagship series. This means that Galaxy S20 will succeed S10e and S20+ will succeed S10.

The upcoming smartphones will reportedly use an Exynos 990 in some markets and a Snapdragon 865 in the majority of markets.

Galaxy S20 is expected to feature a 6.2-inch screen, S20+ is expected to sport a 6.7-inch screen, while the top variant Galaxy 20 Ultra is likely to come with a 6.9-inch screen.

In terms of optics, Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ are expected to have a quad-camera setup highlighted by a 108MP main sensor that delivers 12MP photos from a 9-in-1 binning method.
