Just weeks ahead of Samsung’s next big flagship launch, where the world’s biggest smartphone maker was planning to unveil the Galaxy S20 lineup, live images of the Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup leaked online.
The new flagship is all set to be welcomed as the successor to 2019’s flagship Galaxy S10 phones, and are expected to be launched at Samsung’s Unpacked 2020 in just a few weeks. The company might be looking to launch as many as three new phones on February 11.
Although there have been quite a few leaked renders already, this is the first time that live images of the phone have come out online, thanks to XDA Developers, who claim that the leaked images were sent to them by a source who wishes to remain anonymous.
The leaked images have revealed the design of the phone entirely. They show that the phone has a total of four cameras, a flash, and possibly a microphone hole, from the looks of it. The right side of the device features a volume rocker and a power button. Unlike the S10 series, these images show that there is no Bixby button.
At the front of the phone, there are small bezels on it with the Infinity-O display. It seems to be less curved than what we have seen on the previous version of the phone so far. According to the XDA Developers report, “the phone’s display feels almost flat– almost similar to the Pixel 2 XL”. Samsung may have opted for 2.5D glass, instead of the usual curved glass. The phone also sports a hole punch that is centered and smaller than the Galaxy Note 10 and comes with a pre-installed screen protector.
The leaked images have also confirmed that the new line-up will be called the S20, and the phone that’s been leaked will be the mid-tier phone, with the upper-end one being called S20 Ultra. Rumours also suggest that the new phones will come with a new 12-megapixel 1.8m main image sensor, alongside an ultra-wide, telephoto, and macro lens.
Some of the other spec rumours say that the S20 series will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 mobile platform on the US variants of the device, while the global variants will come with Samsung’s own Exynos chipsets.
