Samsung Releases Galaxy S20 Series

Late last year, rumors started circulating about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy handset. An alleged leak suggested it would be called the Galaxy S20 instead of the Galaxy S11. Later, unofficial photos hit the Internet showing a large camera array with 6 openings.

Yesterday, Samsung unveiled the new phone and both of the rumors turned out to be true. It will ship in 3 configurations called The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. They will sell for $999, $1199, and $1399 respectively and should hit stores in March. All three are 5G capable.

The same event yielded the Galaxy Z foldable phone, but contrary to the rumors it folds in half – it is not a tri-fold design. The Galaxy Z will retail for $1380 and ships this week. Samsung also revealed new wireless earbuds, called Galaxy Buds, during the event. All phones will be offered by Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Xfinity, with Sprint coming soon.
