The Samsung Galaxy S20+ has leaked a month early
This is the Samsung Galaxy S20+, revealed almost a full month before it should have been.
Samsung will unveil its next-generation Galaxy series during its Unpacked 2020 event, on February 11th. Samsung is expected to unveil three new phones (including a foldable one) but the main event is almost certainly the S20+.
Shame then that the Korean firm couldn’t keep it a secret for another few weeks. Full specs of the new phone have been revealed, as well as images of the device’s front and back.
The folks at XDA-Developers were sent the anonymous images, and include the full design of the new phone. The most surprising addition to the new phone is the camera setup that includes a rectangular module featuring four cameras, a flash, and what looks like a microphone.
On the right side of the phone, there is a volume rocker and a power button, but the dedicated Bixby – Samsung’s smart assistant – button is no longer present.
The front display features barely-there bezels; that looks to mean the ‘Infinity-O’ display has a less dedicated curve along the sides. Of course, the whole punch front-facing camera remains (although it looks smaller).
Generally, the S+ models of Samsung’s phones are the most high-end – but not this year.
Starting in 2020, Samsung will be unveiling a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra – which is rumoured to come with even more camera smarts (and potentially, a dedicated macro lens for getting up close and personal with your subjects).
While the S20 will have a few different variants around the world, we’re expecting UAE models to feature 5G connectivity and dual-SIM options.
We’ll be covering the Samsung S20 launch live from here on February 11, so check back then to see how the leaks pan out. Oh, and if even half of these leaks turn out to be true, then it’s going to be a bumper year for Android smartphones.
