Samsung Galaxy S20+ appears in leaked photos with four rear cameras, hole-punch display

Can’t wait until next month to see Samsung’s next big thing? It looks like you won’t have to.

Several photos of the Samsung Galaxy S20+ have leaked out today. The images shared by XDA-Developers give us our first clear look at Samsung’s next flagship and confirm that the company is skipping the numbers 11 through 19 and moving to S20 for its next Galaxy S model.

The front of the phone definitely looks like a Galaxy S flagship, boasting slim bezels and a small chin. The source of the photos says that the display is less curved than previous models, so much so that it felt flat. At the top of the display is an Infinity O hole-punch like the one on the Galaxy Note 10, but this one is said to be smaller than the Note’s.

The rear camera bump is housing four camera sensors. The main one is said to be a 12MP 1.8μm sensor, and it’s expected that the others could include ultra-wide, telephoto, and macro lenses. There’s a microphone in the rear camera array, too, as well as a flash.

On the right side of the Galaxy S20+ are the volume and power buttons. Samsung is not expected to include a dedicated Bixby button on this device.

There are a couple of details on the internals of the Galaxy S20+ that’ve leaked today, too. Samsung will reportedly launch 4G and 5G versions of this Galaxy S20+, but the U.S. may only get the 5G variant. It’s expected that the S20+ will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor.

T-Mobile has launched Samsung’s Galaxy S flagships for years now, and so it’s likely that we’ll see this Galaxy S20+ on T-Mo’s shelves as well. Rumors say that it could be the middle version of the trio of new Galaxy S phones, with the regular Galaxy S20 being the entry-model and a Galaxy S20 Ultra being the highest end version.

Samsung is holding its next Galaxy Unpacked event on February 11th, and we’ll likely meet all three models of the Galaxy S20 there.

    Hoping for 4GLTE versions on all 3 models for Tmobile. Not ready for 5G just yet. Maybe next year.

    • 5G phones are able to use 4G LTE as well, so there is not really reason to not include 5G as it will future-proof the device and is obviously much better than 4G LTE.

      • Timbo1

        Maybe they want a cheaper price? Everything you said was correct though.

        • Sammie Bell

          Yes, I’m hoping Samsung doesn’t go crazy with the 5G pricing like they did with Galaxy S10 5G.

    • Francisco Peña

      Snapdragon chip will have 5G on it, so all the SD phones will be 5G variants.

      And just like USB 2 and USB3, etc.. they are backwards compatible… so its not like you can’t use the 5G phone if you don’t have 5G towers. Most of the nation wouldn’t be able to use it yet.

      • Jay Holm

        Umm, do you not think 5G build-out will increase a lot in the second half of the year? Sheez, everyone is always thinking about RIGHT NOW…..or last year… instead of the next 6-12 months…

          Eh, I got my 600Mhz phone a year after the first one came out, and there was still almost no 600Mhz available. I can see waiting until 2021 when the chips are a bit better and less power hungry and there is actual 5G readily available, not just on paper.

        • Jay Holm

          I have the LG G7, which came out a while ago, and has 600mhz….this deployment is going slow, the reason I am more excited about this than all the 700mhz they aquired, is the 600mhz is nationwide.

        • Francisco Peña

          go reread my comment and stop trying to troll me.

          I said:
          1) Snapdragon chips all will have 5G modem on it, so there will only be 1 version, not a 4g and a 5g model.
          2) they will be backwards compatible, so its not like you can’t use the 5g phone if you don’t have 5G towers. In otherwords, you CAN still use your phone.

          Got it? or did you focus on the part of “Most of the nation wouldn’t be able to use it yet” part? because if this phone comes out soon, I am still right, that most of the nation still won’t be able to use it as a 5G phone. why? because 5G isn’t as widespread, no matter what TMo’s chart, as incomplete as it is, states.

      • Sammie Bell

        Okay thank you for the information.

    • Jay Holm

      Then go to settings, connections, and turn off 5G. With the 865 & 765 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor’s….it is going to be 5G going forward….there is this thing called “future proof”. Sadly you live in the past.

      But a good reason to turn 5G off is I heard it drains a lot of battery, and also causes the phone to get hot. Not disimilar to the HTC Thunderbolt when LTE was new…both deployment, chips, and modems will all get better in 2021. . .

  • Boris Govnic

    This has to stop…. how many cameras 4 6 you drop this phone….game over. I want that new Samsung xcover pro with removable battery in flagship specs. Hard pass on these all these octo mom camera phones.

    • Dharharr

      Agreed, and I’m glad to see Samsung attempt to Make Smart Phones Great Again!

  • Jon

    the back of that is so f’ing hideous.

  • Pak T

    They should just move up to the next letter in the alphabet and go with the “T” models, start with the T-800 and get Schwarzenegger to be the spokesman.

  • Francisco Peña

    20 to go with 2020.

    Annnnnnd NO Bixby button!!!!No Bixby button!!!
