At its forthcoming Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco, Korean smartphone manufacturer Samsung is expected to announce the latest flagship device in the Galaxy S series. Although this has not yet been proven, the company is allegedly changing its Galaxy S series naming convention and moving from the S10 to the S20.
The Galaxy S20 series will include three cameras, the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20 + and the Galaxy S20 Ultra, based on a tipster Ice Universe leak. The Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus, respectively, will be followed by the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 + and Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Over the past 12 months, one of the major smartphone trends has been moving to high refresh rate displays, offering a smoother visual and touch theory experience.
We’ve seen Asus, Google, OnePlus, and Razer all offer this technology before, and now it looks as if Samsung is joining the party. Samsung’s next flagship series (known as the Galaxy S11 or S20 series) will deliver a 120Hz refresh rate, according to SamMobile, citing “highly reliable sources.”
It is unclear if the refresh rate upgrade will be received by all phones or if it is limited only to the standard and Plus models. A higher refresh rate, however, opens the door to a higher frame rate and thus smoother performance.
It is speculated that the flagship smartphone will come in two versions. One with 865 processor Qualcomm Snapdragon, while Exynos 9830 SoC could come with the second version. Samsung may carry the model of Exynos to India. Four variants of the Galaxy phone, including 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB storage, are planned. The phone is tipped to start out-of-the-box Android 10 software.
