Samsung is the top player in smartphone industry. And the year 2020 is the year for the latest flagship from Samsung. It is the year for all new Samsung Galaxy S11 or they might name it Samsung Galaxy S20.
One of the reputed leaker, Ice Universe on twitter had twitted Galaxy S20 a few days ago. And looking at his track record, his leaks were pretty precise in past. So the latest device from Samsung might be named Galaxy S20 and not Galaxy S11. It’s the year 2020 and Galaxy S20 matches 2020 so Samsung might as well name it S20. In my view, if they named this device Galaxy S20, the naming might change to S30, S40 and so on in future days.
Samsung Galaxy S11 Ultra or Galaxy S20 Ultra?
Last year Samsung released Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10 e. Galaxy S10 e was the budget version, Galaxy S10 was the base version and Galaxy S10 Plus was the power version of the S10 series. But it is rumored that the power version of the new Galaxy S11/S20 (according to what they name it) will be called Ultra. It may be either Galaxy S11 Ultra or Galaxy S20 Ultra. Here are the screen sizes of the new phones. They are going to be pretty big phones.
- Galaxy S11: 6.9″
- Galaxy S11 Plus or Ultra: 6.7″
- Galaxy S11e : 6.2″
The Release Date
According to sources, the latest flagship from Samsung will be released on February of 2020. We will also be seeing Samsung Galaxy Note 10 lite, Samsung Galaxy S11 lite and also the second generation of folding smartphones from Samsung. The official name for the folding phone is not yet confirmed but for simplicity lets call it Samsung Galaxy Fold 2.
Galaxy Fold 2
The new generation of the Galaxy Fold will not open to form a tablet as it used to be on first generation of Galaxy Fold. It will be a clam shell folding phone like they used to be back in the days. The new Galaxy Fold 2 will be cheaper compared to the Galaxy Fold. It is supposed to cost around $800 whereas Galaxy Fold sold for around $2000. It will be a long phone that can be folded into a shorter one. With this price the sales of the new foldable phone will surely be better than the original Galaxy Fold.
Galaxy Fold 2 is said to have improved folding mechanism compared to the previous generation and more dust proof as well. The major disadvantage of foldable smartphones is lack of water resistance, let’s hope it will get improved in future foldable phones. Galaxy Fold 2 will also release on February of 2020. I personally liked the notebook like folding of Galaxy Fold as we could use it as a phone as well as tablet. Vertical folding is also good but it just changes a small phone into big phone. However, foldabe phones might be the future of smartphones. We never know.
And the major highlight of Galaxy Fold 2 may use foldable glass. Yes, foldable glass. Samsung was researching on foldable glass after they made Galaxy fold and looks like they have made a breakthrough in that matter. It is rumored that Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will use foldable glass. So we might see a stronger foldable phone compared to original Galaxy Fold. The new phone will be stronger and more easy to handle as we all know glass is better and stronger than plastic that they’ve been using on foldable smartphones. This is good news for future technology.
