Samsung Galaxy S20 release date likely to be announced at the Unpacked event
The Samsung Galaxy S20 release date is expected to be announced during the company’s Unpacked event on February 11. But just a week before the big event, Samsung might have accidentally leaked marketing images of its upcoming flagship which was posted to its website.
The leaked Samsung Galaxy S20 images were spotted by WinFuture, according to The Verge. However, these were later quickly taken down from the site.
But what’s interesting is that the leaked images confirm previous rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S20. For instance, the images show a hole-punch selfie camera as well as a rear camera bump just like previously reported. A new gray case with LEDs that looks similar to the Galaxy S10 is also seen.
According to GSMArena, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra will come with a 108MP main camera using the ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. The 108MP shooter will be the phone’s main camera capable of capturing high-resolution images in excess of a hundred megapixels.
The phone will also have a periscope camera with “100x space zoom,” which could be a combination of 10x optical zoom plus digital enhancement. In addition, it will have either a 48MP or 64MP telephoto lens.
If the leaked Galaxy S20 images are true, it won’t be the first time that such a leak happened in the company’s history. Last year, Samsung also accidentally leaked marketing material for the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus before their scheduled announcement last August.
Meanwhile, the prices of the new Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup for the South Korean market have been leaked as well. The base Samsung Galaxy S20 will be offered at $999, GSMArena reported. The mid-sized S20+ will be priced at $1,199 while the S20 Ultra will have a price tag of $1,399. However, these prices are only for the LTE models while there’s no price released yet for the lineup’s 5G variants.
Aside from announcing the Galaxy S20, the company will likely launch other products during the Unpacked event as well. One of these could be the Galaxy Z Flip, its new vertically folding phone.
