February 11, 2020, was a busy day for Samsung thanks to its mega launch event where it announced several new devices. Among the devices that saw officialdom there included the new Galaxy Z Flip, and the new Galaxy Buds+ wireless earphones. However, the most important launch of the day was arguably that of the company’s new Galaxy S-Series devices. As already outlined in our launch article, the Galaxy S Series for 2020 now consists of three flagship-grade devices — the Samsung Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. All three handsets get top-end specs, and the international variants are all 5G ready.
In India, all the models will feature 4G support only and will also come with slightly lower specs. As the case has been with Samsung for ages now, the Indian variants of the Galaxy S20 series will not use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs and instead will be offered with Samsung’s own Exynos chipsets. In this instance, the India units shall come powered by the Exynos 990 SoC.
Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Flip India launch date
Hours after the launch, famous leakster Ishan Agarwal sent out a tweet that hinted at Samsung launching the S20 series here in India on March 8. According to him, all three variants of the phone will make it to India in less than a month’s time. Samsung also plans to ship the Galaxy Z Flip at around the same time per the tweet. We have embedded the tweet below.
It seems like the Samsung #GalaxyZFlip, #GalaxyS20, #GalaxyS20Plus and #GalaxyS20Ultra will start shipping in India starting March 8th. #GalaxyBudsPlus on 7th March. Yup, the Z Flip isn't arriving very late after all! So excited. #SamsungEvent
