Counterpoint Research now believes that the upcoming Galaxy S20 flagships will maintain an upward trend in Samsung sales that began with their S10-series predecessors. Furthermore, the new phones' performance in the market could re-energise the uptake of their category in general. This may be based on the strength of the S20s' price and specs.

Counterpoint Research's latest projections indicate that the release of the Galaxy S20 series will have a positive impact on premium Samsung shipments, as well as on those of smartphones in general. The research group now believes that over 40 million units of the upcoming flagships will be sold in 2020, and that this indicates the potential for "recovery" in their market.

Therefore, this group - which is thought to comprise the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra at present -  may also gain more shipments compared to the S10 phones in 2019, which reached a figure closer to 30 million in total.

The S20s' predicted success is thought to be based on its specs, even though these are the stuff of rumors at present. Counterpoint has cited leaks pointing to attributes such as 108MP rear camera sensors, 5G support and 16GB of RAM in the Ultra variant in reaching its new conclusions.

This firm's analysts also believes that the S20s' pricing scheme will also drive shipments for these new phones. Counterpoint "expects" it to start at US$850 for the Galaxy S20 base model. However, this conflicts with an earlier report that asserts the series will cost $999 at the least in the US market. On the other hand, it is possible that this higher value apply to 5G variants of the phone only.

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.
