The rumours surrounding the potential February announcement of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20 series of smartphones have been popping up on the internet for long. Finally, a leaked promotional video for the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event has confirmed the date for the same – February 11. The 2020 Galaxy Unpacked event will take place in either New York or San Francisco and will likely include the Samsung Galaxy S20 series and also the second generation of the company’s foldable smartphones, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2.
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Launch Event Promo Video Leaked: Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Fold 2 Incoming
Though the promo video does not mention as to which device(s) the company would unveil on the upcoming event, the video contains the word Galaxy in it, with the A’s being replaced by two blocks. This could very well mean that the company is hinting at two launches. As per XDA‘s Max Weinbach, the first block potentially hints at the camera bump on the Samsung Galaxy S20, while the second one likely hints at the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2. This, however, is not confirmed as of now, so we might as well take it with a pinch of salt.
As far as the specifications of the devices go, the Samsung Galaxy S20 (erstwhile Samsung Galaxy S11) is confirmed to run on the recently launched Exynos 990 chipset. The processor will be coupled with 12GB of RAM. For optics, the Samsung Galaxy S20 is tipped to utilise a 108MP primary camera which will have support for up to 5X optical zoom. The display of the device is being rumoured to have either a 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate. Lastly, the device is said to come in Black, Grey, and Blue colour options.

Moving on to the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, the live images of the device were leaked a little while ago, which gave us a glimpse as to what the device would look like. The leaked images suggest that Samsung would ditch the horizontally-folding design and would opt for a clamshell design this time around.
As of now, this is all we know about both the devices, but we are sure to receive more intel on the same in the coming days.
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked events are usually filled with a lot of add-ons and are not just restricted to Samsung’s flagships. We can very well expect Samsung to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ during the same event. Furthermore, the chances of the company launching the Samsung Galaxy Tab A4s are also likely.
