Rumors regarding the successor to the Galaxy S10 have made a lot of ink run. The XDA-Developers portal leak also reveals that different versions of the Galaxy S20 will be released around the world.
Less than a month away from Samsung Unpacked, the event where the South Korean manufacturer will unveil its next generation of smartphones, there are already many rumors about the successor to the Galaxy S10. The device will apparently not be called S11, but S20 and will have three models to be launched in February. Complementing the “I said no”, the first leaks about the possible look of the Galaxy S20+ are now appearing.
According to the images taken by the XDA-Developers portal, the smartphone features a small raised area to house four rear cameras, a flash and something that looks like a rear microphone. Included in this configuration will be a 12 MP and 1.8-micron main sensor. The button dedicated to Bixby, Samsung’s intelligent assistant also appears to have disappeared. At the front, the Galaxy S20+ 5G displays an infinite “almost” screen with less pronounced curves on each side of the display.
The leaks don’t give more details about the smartphone’s internal components, however, they indicate that different versions of the device will be released around the world. According to the source that the XDA-Developers portal had access to, the Galaxy S20 models with 5G will only arrive in the United States, including the Snapdragon 865 processor. Already outside the US territory, or in countries that don’t yet have a connection to fifth-generation mobile networks, the device will have the SoC Exynos 990.
Still, in the field of rumors, Samsung’s new folding smartphone, the Galaxy Bloom, could also be presented at the next Unpacked event. The device that has the particularity of folding vertically has been the target of teasings for some time. In October 2019, the South Korean manufacturer had already unveiled during the Samsung Developer Conference its device with a design inspired by flip phones. Months later, rumors were that the Galaxy Bloom would cost around $840 and could be launched in early 2020.
