Recently, a prominent leaker claimed that Samsung was to disrupt its long-held flagship-naming convention with a possibly 2020-themed re-brand. Now, another media source claims to have heard that this is in fact the truth. It has allegedly received this confirmation from a “Samsung insider”, as well as from a European smartphone distributor.

Following a tweet posted by the leaker Ice Universe, tech news sites have been moving away from terms such as “Galaxy S11” and “S11+” and towards those such as “Galaxy S20” and “S20 Ultra” instead. The first 2 are what we all assumed the Galaxy S10 smartphones’ successors would be called; however, the last are what the tipster asserts they will be named instead.

A subsequent report by LetsGoDigital purports to confirm this rumor. The outlet claims to have been given this information by a “European retailer”, as well as by a “Samsung insider”. Therefore, these upcoming flagship devices may indeed be called the Galaxy S20 and so on, rather than direct updates for the terms S10e, S10 and S10+.

This change would make sense: it is 2020 after all, and “S20” may be more memorable than “S11” after all. By any name, this new line of premium Samsung phones is thought to rock next-gen displays and multiple rear cameras in rectangular housings. Then again, the OEM has yet to mention their names in any way, not even in its official teaser material for the next Galaxy Unpacked event.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
