The names Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 + have been part of the rumor mill for some time, although the company has not yet officially revealed them. The names now allegedly appeared in the Thai regulator’s database, giving them some credibility. We still have to wait for Samsung to announce, but it is more likely than ever that South Korean tech giants will name their next flagship Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 +, not the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S 11+. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is believed to be the third phone in the Galaxy S20 lineup, but was not seen in the Thai regulator’s database.
According to a report by IndiaShopps, which first saw the alleged Galaxy S20 series listing, Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has certified Samsung’s SM-G980F / DS and SM-G985F / DS phones. These phones clearly mention the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 + monikers in the NBTC database and are seen in the screenshot above. We can ignore the spelling ‘Galavy’ in the screenshot as it is clearly a typo.
Samsung is hosting its Galaxy Unpacked event on February 11 in San Francisco where it will unveil its next flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S20 series may also be included in the company’s rumored Galaxy Z flip foldable phone but we have not yet received any official information about it.
Rumors and leaks indicate that Samsung Galaxy S20 series phones will come with hole-punch display design, in-display fingerprint sensor and Android 10 with OneUI 2.0. The phone is set to come with Exynos 990 SoC, 512GB onboard storage and 12GB RAM (depending on the phone).
According to the recently leaked price, the Galaxy S20 has been launched for EUR 899 (about Rs 70,900), while the 5G variant of the phone is likely to cost EUR 100 more. The Samsung Galaxy S20 + 5G variant is reported to start at EUR 1,099 (approx. Rs. 86,600), while the Galaxy S20 Ultra is expected to start at EUR 1,349 (approx. Rs. 1,06,000).
