With Samsung Galaxy S20’s launch date coming close, there have been leaks which have started flowing and these are dropping pertinent hints about the phone. There is this latest piece of information about the phone which suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S20 comes from the company’s own support page.
As reported by the Sammobile website in the company’s Latin America support page, the Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ smartphones will not have 5G connectivity as standard across the series. Both these phones will also be launched in LTE variants.
The page, which has been taken down since, also says that the non-5G Samsung Galaxy S20+ will have the model number SM-G985F and the 5G version will have the model number SM-G986F. Both the LTE and 5G variants of the Samsung Galaxy S20 will come with the model number SM-G980F and SM-G981F respectively.
What are the details:
It has already been reported that although Samsung will have a 5G and a LTE variant for its unannounced Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ smartphones, it could well not launch both of them in one go in all the markets. For bigger markets like the United States where 5G has already started rolling out, the company could start selling only the 5G versions. However, in India where cost matters, and where there is no 5G yet, Samsung may introduce the LTE variants.
It should be mentioned here that India is still far from spectrum auctions and it might take the country around a year and half at least before 5G comes to India. There has been an announcement made by Samsung about the Unpacked 2020 event which will be taking place in San Francisco, US on February 11.
The company will launch three new smartphones in the series even during that time. The three handsets are being called the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. The ‘Ultra’ model will be the one which has a 108-megapixel rear camera.
