Following information that Samsung could change up the naming scheme of its Galaxy S flagship line, extra particulars recommend we gained’t see a successor to the wonderful Galaxy S10e.
What began as a obscure tweet from recognized leaker Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) now has extra legs to it. Ice Universe steered that in 2020, Samsung would launch the Galaxy S20, a “new beginning” for the telephone. A report from German tech publication WinFuture has backed up that declare, noting we will count on three S20 telephones subsequent 12 months as a substitute of S11 gadgets.
Additional, WinFuture signifies we’ll see a Galaxy S20, S20+ and an S20 Extremely variant, however no S20e. The brand new S20 telephones will even function greater screens, coming in at 6.2-, 6.7- and a hand-cramping 6.9-inches for the S20, S20+ and S20 Extremely respectively.
On prime of that, the S20 and S20+ will probably are available in 4G and 5G variants, whereas the S20 Extremely will solely be accessible as a 5G gadget.
Nevertheless, that final bit could also be extra of a advertising tactic than something. All three gadgets will probably use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets — most likely the recently announced Snapdragon 865 — in North America. The 865, nonetheless, doesn’t have a built-in modem. As a substitute, it makes use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X55 Modem platform, which helps each 5G and 4G.
The best way Qualcomm positioned the X55 Modem and the 865 at its Snapdragon Summit in December, evidently gadgets utilizing the techniques will probably be marketed as ‘5G ready.’ In different phrases, they need to work even in areas that don’t have 5G — like Canada — and hopefully be capable to hook up with 5G when networks come on-line.
With that in thoughts, an S20 Extremely with the Snapdragon 865 and X55 Modem ought to work in Canada, however I’d wager Samsung gained’t launch it in Canada and launch it in international locations with 5G networks as a substitute. After all, most of that is hypothesis primarily based on hearsay — we gained’t know any of this for sure till Samsung launch the Galaxy S20 line (or S11 line) in early 2020, doubtlessly in mid-February.
And I sincerely hope that Samsung does launch a successor to the S10e — one in every of my favourite phones of 2019.
