There have already been some rumors about what Samsung will reveal on February 11, but it does not become much clearer than these newly appeared photos.
The Galaxy S20
Samsung's not yet revealed appeared on XDA Developers on Sunday. The website credits the photos to an anonymous source.
Assuming they are legitimate, the leak is equivalent to our first real look at Samsung's next flagship smartphone.
The images show the front and the back of the device. The most intriguing details come from the back, with a camera bump that includes what appear to be four different lenses, a flash and a much smaller hole that may or may not be a microphone (for video, maybe?) .
You can also see on the side of the phone what appears to be a volume control and a power button. There are no signs of a dedicated button for Samsung's smart assistant, Bixby, as they have been on other recent Galaxy models.
The front of the phone
It shows a thin bezel around the screen and a small cutout at the top for the front camera. The source of the images told XDA developers that (in the words of the website) the screen "felt flat", losing the curved feel of previous Galaxy screens. The smartphone will also come with a preinstalled screen protector, according to the source.
The first time we heard some rumors about the Galaxy S20 was Friday through a CES report that suggested that Samsung will present three models at its Samsung Unpacked event on February 11.
There is the base model S20, the updated S20 + (which is the phone supposedly represented in the XDA Developers leak), and the S20 Ultra even more updated.
Exactly what will differentiate the three models, although the XDA report suggests that the S20 + features a larger body, while the S20 Ultra also includes improved camera technology.
The previous report, on Friday, said the S20, along with Samsung's vertically foldable Galaxy Bloom (which is also expected to be revealed in February), will support 8K video recording.
Whatever the facts, you won't have to wait much longer. Samsung confirmed right after CES 2020 that the next unpacking is scheduled for February 11.
