Samsung recently launched a promo video that showed the two ‘a’ in the word “Galaxy” covered in white blocks mentioning the unpacking date of February 11 in the video. The hint was enough to understand that the Korean tech giant is planning two smartphone launches on the mentioned date. The company has also started sending invites to several media houses and tech gurus for the launch invite that will take place on the mentioned day in San Francisco at 11 AM.
As per previous reports, it was highly expected that Samsung would release Galaxy S11, aka Galaxy S20, earlier this year. Therefore, it is almost confirmed that the tech giant will release the flagship phone on February 11.
Galaxy S11 is expected to come up with a 5G modem and powered by either Snapdragon 865 chipset (mainly in the U.S.) or in-house Exynos chipset (globally). The phone is also expected to feature a punch-hole selfie camera, near bezel-less design, huge rear camera setup, and 120Hz refresh rate display – an area where Samsung intends to beat rivals such as OnePlus, Google, and Asus (Rog Phone 2). There could be three variants of S11, including a Base model, a Plus model, and an Ultra model with display sizes in the range of 6.2 to 6.9 inches.
As far as the second white block is concerned, speculation is rife that Samsung might release the second generation of Galaxy Fold, one that received immense popularity due to its innovative design last year. Coming to the design of expected Galaxy Fold 2, it is believed that the phone could be vertically foldable and cost much lower than the first generation in an effort to beat the very popular Moto Razr.
For any confirmation on the launches, we have to wait for the unfolding event on February 11. So, please stay tuned to PhonesWiki.
