Samsung Galaxy S10 successor won't be called the Galaxy S11 apparently

The Galaxy Note 10 Lite is expected to be launched sometime in January alongside the Galaxy S10 Lite, and while details on the handset have been revealed in bits and pieces in the last couple of months, many of its specs have remained a mystery. The premium models, namely the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11 Plus, will feature 6.7-inch and 6.9-inch 120Hz refresh rate displays.

Famed leakster Ice Universe had claimed that the Samsung's upcoming foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold 2 may have an "ultra-thin glass display" instead of plastic.

The current Galaxy Fold handset is priced at almost $2,000 which is not an amount most people are willing to pay and is not accessible to a larger segment of the population. For all we know, the S20 could be an entirely new Samsung flagship unrelated to the Galaxy S11. It's also worth pointing out, Samsung wouldn't be the first manufacturer to do something like this. Huawei has previously named the successors to its Huawei P10 and Honor 10 smartphones as Huawei P20 and Honor 20.

Well, we are about to hit 2020, which means that the new wave of exciting phone announcements is not far off!

Although these Galaxy S10 deals will certainly be appealing to Android fans looking to upgrade their device, they do come with a word of warning. Along with the Galaxy S9 duo, Samsung is also busy with the development of Android 10 updates for another 2018 flagship - The Galaxy Note 9. The company likes to keep a uniformity in the naming of the two series. While Ice has a good track when it comes to pre-release leaks, they haven't been consistent about calling the phone the S20 either.

Also, now that the Snapdragon 865 has been announced, it's likely that there will be an SD865 variant for the U.S. and an Exynos variant for the rest of the world.

Of course this can and, if we are honest, probably just a smart PR move. The annual mobile event commences on February 24.
