As the number of smartphone models grow, companies are starting to find it difficult to come up with catchy model names and numbers. For example, with the 2017 iPhone, Apple decided to call it the iPhone X to mark it as the tenth iPhone model, and it looks like Samsung could be doing something similar for its 2020 flagship smartphone.
Next year’s Galaxy S model is largely assumed to be known as the Galaxy S11, but according to a tweet by Ice Universe, he claims that the model will be known as the Galaxy S20. This is apparently because it will be 2020 and Samsung wants to take advantage of that, and that it will also represent a “new beginning” for the company.
We’re not sure what exactly Ice Universe means by a “new beginning”, especially since all the rumors we’ve heard so far have suggested that it isn’t necessarily going to be a massive upgrade. It is still rumored to continue sporting a similar design to 2019’s Galaxy S10 models, and the main upgrades will most likely come in the form of the processor and also the camera.
Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning.

Apart from that, we haven’t really heard that it will be too big of a departure from this year’s models. In any case, we’ll have to wait and see but it shouldn’t be too long as Samsung is rumored to launch the handset in the early part of 2020.
