Most folks expect Samsung to announce the Galaxy S11 next year, but a new rumor has suggested that Samsung may go with a slightly different name.
Galaxy S20 could be the name of Samsung's next big flagship. The name was teased by Ice Universe, who has been a source of Samsung's leaks in the past. They added that "Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning."
It's been widely expected that Samsung's next Galaxy S flagship would continue with the same numbering scheme that Samsung has been using to date. So far, we've gotten Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, and so on, up to the Galaxy S10 that launched earlier this year.
A change to Galaxy S20 could allow Samsung to do a couple different things. It would line the model number of the Galaxy S flagship up with the current year, which could help consumers know which model is the latest available. The Galaxy S20 name would also give Samsung a "higher number" model than some of the company's closest competitors, like the iPhone 11.
There's not much info to go on about this Galaxy S20 name right now, which means we're largely stuck with speculation. What do you think of this Galaxy S20 strategy? Could you see Samsung jumping from the Galaxy S11 in 2019 to the Galaxy S20 in 2020?
Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning.
