Samsung Accidentally Suggests Launch Date For S20 Flagship
Samsung is largely expected to announce its major flagship phone range, rumoured to be called the Galaxy S20, at its official event on 11 February.
But according to speculation, the phone isn’t set to be shipped to customers until 6 March.
Multiple credible tech blogs, including SamMobile, TechRadar and 9to5Google, noticed that Samsung’s official website alerted those who signed up for notifications about its upcoming Galaxy device that they can expect to hear further details about phone orders on 6 March.
However, since the revelation, Samsung has appeared to have changed its website as the confirmation page no longer lists this date.
The launch date does fall in line with previous timeframes in which Samsung released its Galaxy S phones in the past.
For example, last year the Korean-based tech giant announced the Galaxy S10 on 20 February and released it onto the market on 8 March.
But Samsung hasn’t confirmed any details about the device ahead of its unveiling.
Leaks and speculation, however, has plagued the flagships upcoming launch, with it expected to be called the Galaxy S20 and may come in multiple variations, colours and specs.
Much like last year’s Galaxy S10, rumours are indicating there will be a standard model, the S20, a ‘Plus’ model, and a 5G-enabled version.
One leak from XDA Developers’ Max Weinbach suggests there will be five different models of the Galaxy S20, which has also been previously reported on in ChannelNews.
Leakster Ishan Agarwal also tweeted variants of the S20 range’s colours and models.
The Galaxy’s S20 range’s biggest new feature is expected to be its revamped camera, which is said to have a 108-megapixel sensor, according to Bloomberg.
The flagship range may also have larger screens than last year’s Galaxy S10 lineup, as prominent leakster Evan Blass has suggested the new models will come in three different screen sizes: 6.4-inches, 6.7-inches and 6.9-inches.
That’s a leap in size from the Galaxy S10 family, which has the 5.8-inch Galaxy S10e, the 6.1-inch Galaxy S10, and the 6.4-inch Galaxy S10 Plus.
