Folks over at XDA Developers have leaked the first-ever live images of Samsung’s upcoming flagship — the Galaxy S20+. The company – as you might be aware – is officially set to unveil the new trio of Galaxy S-Series handsets at the Samsung Unpacked 2020 event just a few weeks from now. While we have seen quite a few leaks and CAD renders of the upcoming Galaxy S-Series, this is is the first instance of a clear image of one of the handsets. XDA has revealed that the images were sent to them by an anonymous source and that some edits were made to ensure that the protect the source from being identified. Nevertheless, these images are clear enough for us to take a detailed look at the Samsung Galaxy S20+.
At first glance, you might observe that the overall design language of the S20+ does not differ significantly from the existing S10+. Upon closer inspection though, you might notice that the display on this device isn’t as curved as the ones you see on the current S10+ models. According to the report, Samsung seems to have opted for a non-curved 2.5D glass this time around for the S20+.
The phone continues to trot the Infinity-O notch for the front-facing camera — except this time, the notch is at the center instead of the right side. Also, there seems to be just a single front-facing camera which seems to be a downgrade. XDA Developers has an explanation for this. According to them, the Galaxy S20+ shall not be the top-end model of the Galaxy S-Series range this time around. That honor will go to a new handset called the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Moving on to the rear panel, the first thing you might notice is the quad-camera setup. We still do not know the finer details of the camera sensors that this phone will use. There is also a dedicated flash module at the rear. The dedicated Bixby button – a standard affair on older S-series devices seems to have been removed.
More details of the handset could be leaked in the next few days. Pricing and other information will be made official on February 11 — the day of the Samsung Unpacked event.
