In earlier news…
According to our sources, the Galaxy S11 lineup will have at least variants, bearing model numbers SM-G981, SM-G986, and SM-G988. All these variants will come with integrated 5G connectivity.
On another note, we’ve also managed to find the model number of a newer foldable screen smartphone from Samsung. It will bear the model number SM-F700F, which consists of a lower number than the Galaxy Fold’s model number (SM-F900F). If this information is accurate, it could mean that the company’s next foldable smartphone could be a trimmed-down version of the original Fold.
