Samsung brings out new devices every year at a launch event in San Francisco for new Galaxy S flagships. The Galaxy S11 isn’t going to be an exception. It’s likely that the Galaxy S11 launch event will take place sometime around the third week of February.
Galaxy S11 launch date is set for February 11
It’s tough to pin on an exact date so early, although if we had to take our chances and pick a particular date, it would be February 18, 2020. The timeframe is also close to when Samsung has released its earlier S series models. Of course, the dates can always change. However, so far there’s nothing that seems off-track which could delay Samsung from its usual release period or indicating the manufacturer will be moving away from the usual February launch.
What to Expect?
The hype around S11 has been pretty high for a few days now. However, it is very difficult to say anything about it at this stage, because not a lot of information has been released in public domain about the new flagship at this stage. Some speculations to make are that the phone will have a waterfall display, 5G connectivity and probably no headphone jack. The phone will have the latest Qualcomm 755 5G integrated chip for sure and a display with a 90Hz or higher refresh rate. It’s important here to remember that while Samsung’s releases this year were incredible in most aspects, they did receive some criticism too, especially for the cameras that had not received any big upgrade over the previous versions. With the new camera technologies that Samsung has announced this year (the Isocell Bright 108MP sensor, and the 64MP GW1 sensor), one thing’s for certain – 2020’s Samsung flagship phones are going to bring big changes in mobile photography.
It’s also believed that Samsung will move to a higher 120Hz refresh rate with its next flagship, leapfrogging OnePlus and Google and matching the Asus ROG Phone 2’s level of fluidity. Other rumors hint at more advanced camera features and 8K video recording.
