Leaked Samsung promo reveals when the Galaxy 20 line and the Galaxy Fold 2 could be unveiled

Leaked Samsung promo reveals when the Galaxy 20 line and the Galaxy Fold 2 could be unveiled
Thanks to a tweet disseminated late Friday night, we now know that the next Samsung Unpacked will be taking place on Tuesday, February 11th. The tweet contains an unreleased promo for the event. Both the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Fold 2 are expected to be unveiled during the event. The latter is Samsung's next foldable that is expected to open and close around the horizontal axis, similar to the new Motorola razr.

UPDATE: Samsung Mobile has confirmed the date by posting the promo on its own Twitter feed with the caption "Say hello to a whole new Galaxy. Unpacked on February 11th, 2020."

Like the razr, the Galaxy Fold 2 is more about turning a pocketable device into a phone instead of morphing from a smartphone into a tablet like the first Galaxy Fold. The rumored 6.7-inch display is said to employ ultra-thin glass and even though the price is supposedly going to be under $1,000, Sammy isn't skimping on the specs. For example, the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform is expected to be under the hood along with 12GB of memory and 256GB of storage. The device will come out of the box with Android 10 and the manufacturer's One UI 2.1 interface pre-installed. Two batteries will keep the lights on with one of the batteries weighing in at 900mAh. Super Fast Charging will support a minimum of 25W and a maximum of 45W charging. The Galaxy Fold 2 will support 5G.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra could be the company's premium Android flagship for the first half of this year


The latest rumor about Samsung's next flagship line calls for the Galaxy S20 to be the entry-level model followed by the Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The Galaxy S20 will feature a 6.2-inch display with a triple camera setup in the back. That would include a 108MP primary camera with 9:1 binning delivering sharp and noise-free 12MP images. There also will be an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto camera employing a periscope to offer 5x optical zoom. Powered by the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform everywhere but in Europe (where the Exynos 990 SoC will be under the hood), the Galaxy S20 will be released with at least 8GB of memory along with 128GB of storage and a 4000mAh battery. Android 10 and One UI 2.1 will be pre-installed.


If the Galaxy S20 is the entry-level model, the Galaxy S20+ will now be the model in the middle. This phone will reportedly sport a 6.7-inch AMOLED display powered by the Snapdragon 865 (again, not in Europe where the Exynos 990 will be employed). 12GB of memory will be inside along with 256GB of storage and we should find a quad-camera setup in the back. Besides the same three cameras found on the Galaxy S20, this model will include a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. This feature will allow the device to offer more accurate depth information for AR, more natural bokeh blurs on portraits, and possible secure facial recognition. A larger capacity 4500mAh keeps the lights on and Android 10 comes out of the box along with the One UI 2.1 interface.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the premium Samsung flagship smartphone for the first half of 2020. There is talk of a massive 6.9-inch AMOLED display. It will rely on the same chipset, sport the same configurations as the Galaxy S20+ and have the same camera setup on the back with a second 2x telephoto camera. This phone might offer the Space Zoom feature rumored that combines the two telephoto cameras and the 108MP camera to offer 50x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom. The Galaxy S20 Ultra could be equipped with a 5000mAh battery.

Also, there has been speculation that the Galaxy S20 series will all support 5G and feature a 90Hz refresh rate. We urge you to mark up your calendar for February 11th when Samsung will most likely introduce us to its next generation of flagship Android phones and the sequel to its first foldable phone.

Why do they make it 20:9 ? Should've gone directly to 21:9, we all know that's gonna happen by 2021 anyway

Such a dumb naming scheme. Why don’t they just call it the Samsung Galaxy S (2020) instead of using a perplexing and confusing naming scheme like these Chinese manufacturers

I have two theories for this change up in naming: 1. They decided to start doing 10, 20, 30, 40, etc. as a way to differentiate itself from being lumped in with Apple’s numerical order. People are dumb enough to assume that an S10 is not as advanced as an iPhone 11 because 10 is less than 11. 2. They start naming it S20, S21, S22 which lines up exactly with the year it is. I would rather them do this because it makes more logical sense and as a consumer you will know what year your phone was released in immediately by the name.

You are probably correct about #2. Makes sense. Regards, Alan

good points. Both of them are relevant and so reset to S20 makes sense.

I still think is more cleaner, streamlined and less confusing to just drop the numerical value after the S and just note the year that model is on. Go back to making a small, medium and large phone. Samsung Galaxy (2020) - 5” Samsung Galaxy S (2020) - 5.8-6” Samsung Galaxy S+ (2020) - 6.7-6.9” These manufacturers need to start simplifying their product line up and portfolio.

You do realize they're Korean and not American right?

Agreed! Just call it the "S". You can remove Galaxy, and make the S it's own brand as a premium device along with the Note. This 20 is just dumb.

Europe has been dealt a cruel hand, glad to be skipping this gen and staying with the 10+.

I wish they had made a S20e as well. That was perfect size. its unfortunate that all models have to be so big. Otherwise the upgrades are exciting. At last they are putting in a bigger sensor(1/1.33") as this sensor has been the staple since S6? Also excited to see how 5x zoom performs. Plus i am hoping Samsung will soon start to support 3 years of s/w upgrades for flaghip devices. That would make it a game changer for sure.

I think their main reason for coming out with lite models is to replace the e. The same with the midrange phones. The could have at least made a smaller S20 though. I also realised how the lite and midrange phones has the flat screens

The entry-level S20 is the perfect size for me.

Haven't been a big fan of Samsung's UI since I got rid of my S4 for a HTC10. I wish that therre were still Google Play Editions of phones - or whatever they were called.

I'm not even sure what you mean by this comment. Do you know how many times Samsung has changed the UI since the S4?
