2020 is just a few days away and we have enough rumors on how many devices are due for launch in 2020. A recent rumor from a common rumor mill suggests that something we knew about Samsung Galaxy S11 is wrong. According to a recent tweet from Ice Universe, a common tipster for Samsung products, the Korean company may skip the name S11 for the next device. Instead, the device would be called S20, because it is being launched in the year of 2020. However, the tweet from the tipster is pretty vague at best.
“Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning,” said the account Ice Universe in a tweet that was made on 24th of December. It is not unusual for smartphone manufacturers to skip numbers while naming the devices. A number of device makers have done this in the past but this is quite rare in the case of Samsung. However, doing so comes with a number of benefits. For instance, people would have less trouble in finding and buying the most recent model, since it corresponds with the year. And, the fact that the device is synonymous with the new decade is also good for marketing.
Of course, at the end of the day, nothing is official from Samsung, but Ice Universe is one of the most trusted tipsters when it comes to Samsung matters. It is also very likely that they are true about the statements, but we have to wait for a few months to even confirm or deny this. Considering that Samsung has been planning to add many more features to the next flagship package, the name S20 won’t be a bad choice either. It would also take the Samsung line-up ahead of what iPhone has to offer.
