That isn’t rumors anymore, the Korean firm has just confirmed its 2020 Galaxy unpacked event for February 11th weeks before the 2020 MWC.
The 2020 Galaxy unpacked event as per the invite/ promo video will take place Tuesday, Feb. 11 in San Francisco at 11 a.m. PST.

What to expect from Samsung’s 2020 Galaxy unpack event
Usually, Samsung uses its annual Galaxy unpacked event which happens right before the massive MWC tech show to showcase its first flagship of the year. Last year’s event was the launchpad for the current Galaxy s10 trio, and the Galaxy Fold, so its more or less certain the company will unveil the Galaxy S11 / Galaxy S20 or whatever it decides to name its 2020 flagship S series, as well as a foldable rival to Motorola’s Razr, which Samsung teased in October.
While we are not entirely sure what name Samsung will give to the annual Flagship S smartphone – the Galaxy S11 or the Galaxy S20, reports have it that the device will feature 5G connectivity, a 108-megapixel camera, 5,000-mAh battery and a new design that borrows from the Galaxy Note 10. The device is expected to pack as much as 5 cameras on the rear, while the front design might be iterative of the S10 and the Note 10nwith centered hole-punch. And of course, the Galaxy S11. Galaxy S20 range will come packed with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 865 chipset in most markets, while a few will get the Exynos 990 variant.
