Samsung reportedly confirms Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Bloom monikers for Feb 11 Unpacked event


Samsung has already confirmed that its next S-series flagship smartphone will be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event at San Francisco on February 11. Alongside it was also rumored that a clamshell-style foldable smartphone will also be shown the light the same day.

Now according to a new report, the South Korean manufacturer has revealed that the upcoming foldable smartphone will be called the Galaxy Bloom in a closed-door meeting with reporters at CES 2020. To note, as per the earlier rumors, the phone in question was being developed with the same codename.

The clamshell-like foldable smartphone will be geared towards female customers in their 20s. Hence, Samsung has adopted the design language of the compact makeup powder from the French cosmetics brand Lancome.

The report also confirmed the previous buzz that the upcoming S11 would be called the Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S20 will come in three variants, namely the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. The numeral leap taken in the branding is in accordance with an aggressive marketing strategy planned for the phone.

Another important thing that the new report reveals is both the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Bloom will be capable of shooting videos at 8K resolution. It is expected that YouTube following the launch of these smartphones will also enable 8K video streaming on its platform.

The report claims that the Galaxy Bloom will accompany the Galaxy S20 on the same day of the launch, confirming what was until now in the rumor territory only. However, there is no hint from the company about the specs of both smartphones.

Nevertheless, if the rumors are to be believed the Galaxy Bloom will be powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC and will feature a 10MP selfie camera on the front along with dual-camera setup on the plastic back panel. The Galaxy Bloom is expected to cost around $1000 so that it can compete with the Motorola RAZR 2019.

As far as the Galaxy S20 is concerned, the rumor mill suggests that the Galaxy S20 will use 25W fast charging support and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. The phone will come packing Super AMOLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rates and 3D Sonic Max in-display fingerprint sensor.

Also, there will be a 108MP led quad-camera setup at the back, which will capture images in pixel binning format. But unlike the previous 4-in-1 pixel binning technique the camera here will use a 9-in-1 pixel binning technique for better-detailed images in low light conditions.

More details about the smartphones are expected to spring up in the run-up to their launch. So, stay tuned for timely updates in this regard.
