The Samsung Galaxy S11 could actually be the Galaxy S20

Samsung is billed to release the Galaxy S11 phones in February. The problem with that, however, is that there's a chance we won't be getting the S11, as a new tip touts a Huawei-esque naming scheme switch that will see the phones called the Galaxy S20 series instead.

Samsung is set to debut its next set of flagships in two months. The company is expected to launch the Galaxy S11 at an event in San Fransisco on February 18. The problem with that, however, is that the devices may not use the "S11" moniker at all.

There's not much to go by. The only recent indication of that is a cryptic tweet by renowned leakster Ice Universe that says, well, "Galaxy S20". Considering the fact that, if Samsung were to continue with the logical progression of names, we wouldn't see the S20 until 2029, it sure looks like Ice Universe was referring to Samsung's imminent flagships.

Jumping from a 10-series to a 20-series isn't without precedent, either. Huawei made the same jump on all its flagship phones, going from the Mate 10 to Mate 20, P10 to P20, Honor 10 to Honor 20, and so one. It would seem that Samsung could go a similar route with the next Galaxy S-series phones. 

Considering the fact that Samsung's flagships are positioned against Apple's iPhone offerings, it would make no sense for the South Korean company to make this switch. Apple's current generation is the iPhone 11-series, and it would be more sensible to continue with the S11 naming scheme.
