It is expected that Samsung will unveil three Galaxy S11 devices and a new foldable phone at Unpacked 2020 in San Francisco in February.
Samsung has sent out the official invites for its Unpacked event that will take place in San Francisco on February 11 at 11:00 PST. The event will take place at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. The South Korean tech giant is expected to unveil its first Galaxy smartphones for 2020.
The company is expected to unveil three differently sized Galaxy S11 phones — which are also rumoured to be called the Galaxy S20 — as well as a brand new foldable phone similar to Motorola’s Razr.
The invitation shows the word “Galaxy” but the “a”s are replaced with shapes of the phone packaging boxes. The two boxes likely mean that there will be two “unboxings” for the two types of phone. The video version of the invitation, posted on its Samsung’s official website, also shows the two boxes “folding” into place before forming the word “Galaxy”.
The Galaxy S11 is rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 and could possess new generation features like 5G, a 5,000-mAh battery.
Samsung will be the first major brand to release its flagship smartphone in 2020, ahead of the Mobile World Congress which takes place from February 24 to 27. The company has been working to strengthen its position in 5G. It shipped 6.7 million 5G phones last year, also being the first movers in shipping foldable smartphones ahead of its rivals Huawei and Apple.
Samsung said, with its Galaxy lineup, it can bring more premium features down market.
It is expected that the company will release a 5G tablet at the start of this year.
A series of photos posted on Weibo appear to show Samsung’s next foldable smartphone, and it looks awesome.
Midtier devices are driving sales around the globe. Huawei sales jumped 26%, with the strongest growth among the top five vendors.
