Adding to a recent rumor which talked about Samsung’s intentions to go with the Galaxy S20 as the name for its next flagship in lieu of Galaxy S11, a new tweet from the same source has revealed the company’s motive to ditch the expected Galaxy S10e successor, going with an additional model called the Galaxy S20 Ultra. This means the company is expected to launch a standard Galaxy S20, a Galaxy S20+ as well as the Ultra model.
The leakster mentions that Samsung isn’t certain on the ‘Ultra’ moniker, and that it may change as we inch closer towards the launch. For those unaware, the Galaxy S10e was a Galaxy S10 spinoff with a decent hardware specs sheet. While rumors for long have predicted a successor to the smartphone, this latest revelation suggests otherwise.
Naturally, we need to take this with a pinch of salt since it’s mostly speculation at this point. But if Samsung does manage to launch a new “Ultra” or any other variant, the hardware specs it’s packing as well as the markets that Samsung wants to sell it in are going to be crucial factors.
As for the galaxy s20 lineup, they are rumored to be packing an octa-core Snapdragon 865 SoC, Android 11, as well as a significantly beefed up camera with enhanced support for night photos. A recent render of the Galaxy S11+ revealed a polished rear camera layout consisting of four camera sensors.
A separate leak also told us about the size difference between the three early-2020 Samsung flagships, although the third device was known as the Galaxy S11e at that point.
