New Samsung Galaxy S series coming on this date

World's leading smartphone-maker Samsung has announced to launch the company's first flagship mobile of 2020 next month.

Samsung is hosting the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 edition event in San Francisco at 11:00 am PST on February 11. Going by the launch pattern of the past years, the company will most probably unveil a brand new iteration of the Galaxy S.

However, a wild theory circulating in the tech circle says Samsung may skip the Galaxy S11 naming order and jump directly to S20 so that there is parity with the current year 2020.

Even the short 15-seconds teaser video gives out an intriguing vibe that Samsung has something new up its sleeves. One thing is sure, there will be more than one devices making their debut early next month.
