Samsung’s next flagship lineup may be called the “Galaxy S20”
We’re less than a week away from 2020, yet we’re already getting to know some of the devices that will be making headlines this upcoming year. One of them is, obviously, from Samsung. We already know a fair bit about Samsung’s upcoming flagship phones, including their screen sizes, overall design, and some camera specs and hardware features as well including 108MP cameras and high refresh rate displays. Samsung’s upcoming flagship lineup is largely expected to launch as the Galaxy S11, Galaxy S11e, and Galaxy S11+, but if two Twitter sources are to believe, this may not be the case at all: we might see a small change in the naming scheme and see them launch as the Galaxy S20.
This possibility was suggested by two separate Twitter sources, leaksters @IceUniverse and @MMDDJ_, who both independently tweeted the purported device’s name (“Galaxy S20” in the case of Ice Universe, while @MMDDJ_ stuck to just “S20”). So if this is to be believed, Samsung’s newest lineup of devices would be called the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20e, and Galaxy S20+. This wouldn’t be out of the ordinary: Huawei also did this last year with the Huawei P20 line (which was expected to launch as the P11) and has stuck to it from then onwards, with their latest device being the Mate 30. Ice Universe also followed up their tweet saying that “next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning” as a possible explanation for the name change.
Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning.

For now, though, you should take this with a grain, or rather a metric ton, of salt, as neither of them provided any sources for their claims. So while Galaxy S20 is a definite possibility, we shouldn’t rule out the Galaxy S11 name just yet, as we’re still at least two months away from an official announcement at Unpacked 2020. It’s very possible that even Samsung itself doesn’t yet know which name to use.
