Galaxy S20 leaks and rumors: $850 starting price, new colors, better camera tech

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body”Hello, big eyes. This could be the Galaxy S20.

XDA Developers Samsung is getting set to unveil its newest Galaxy phones on Feb. 11, said to be called the Galaxy S20 5G, S20 Plus 5G and S20 Ultra 5G. That’s right, the Galaxy S11 name is dead before it even arrived. But the rumored features and specs are the same. In addition to the 5G support thought to be baked into the name, we’re also keeping our eyes peeled for upgraded camera tech, new colors, a giant battery, beast of a processor and extra-fast 120Hz screens.

The Galaxy S20 phones won’t be alone. We also expect Samsung to reveal a foldable phone called the Galaxy Z Flip, a clamshell design meant to challenge the Motorola Razr (which is available for preorder now and goes on sale Feb. 6). While the Galaxy S20 phones will anchor Samsung’s Unpacked event, we anticipate seeing more products come to light, like the Galaxy Buds Plus and maybe the Galaxy Watch 2.

5G may sneakily be the most important new Galaxy S20 feature to impact the mobile industry. These phones could help tip the scale in bringing 5G to the masses, at least in the top tier. After all, Samsung is the world’s biggest phone brand, and the Galaxy S should be the company’s most popular premium phones. 

There’s good reason for Samsung to anticipate big sales. The company is already coasting off a strong 2019 that saw the excellent Galaxy Note 10 and unforgettable Galaxy Fold. If the brand has its way, big changes coming to the Galaxy S20 phones could spell out another blockbuster year.

Samsung’s official Unpacked invitation gives a few clues about the phones we’ll see next month.

Samsung Price: Galaxy S20 Ultra could cost $1,200

We expect the Galaxy S20 series to more or less align with the iPhone 11 series, with the standard version well under $1,000 and the most advanced model breaking the $1,000 mark.

The latest mix of rumor and speculation about the Galaxy S20 pricing comes from Max Weinbach of XDA Developers:

Galaxy S20: $850 (900 to 1,000 euros)

Galaxy S20 Plus: $950 (1,050 to 1,100 euros)

Galaxy S20 Ultra: $1,200 (1,300 euros)

For reference, here were the Galaxy S10 prices for the base storage configuration:

Galaxy S10E: $749, £669, AU$1,199

Galaxy S10: $899, £799, AU$1,349

Galaxy S10 Plus: $999, £899, AU$1,499

Galaxy S10 5G: $1,300, £1,099, AU$2,950

The exact names of the three Galaxy S20 models have been bouncing around, but people are starting to settle on Galaxy S20 5G for the “standard” version, S20 Plus 5G for the middle version (not Pro) and S20 Ultra 5G for what is presumably the largest, most advanced of the three.
