The leaks surrounding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S20 (previously thought to be called the Galaxy S11) have started to intensify as we move closer to the flagship's official reveal.
- Samsung CEO may have just said the Galaxy S11 is the Galaxy S20
- Don't expect the Samsung Galaxy S11 to be all that easy to repair
- Samsung Galaxy S11 will likely get 120Hz display option
Aside from the images seemingly confirming the Galaxy S20 name, the 5G labelling also lends weight to reports that each phone in the series will be powered by Qualcomm's 5G-ready Snapdragon 865 chipset in the US. Samsung's Exynos 990 is expected to power the device in most other territories.

Based on the images above, the device's design lines up with previous reports on Samsung's next flagship, such as the enormous camera block on its rear, and the Galaxy Note 10-style punch-hole camera that's centered at the top of its display.
According to XDA Developers, the Galaxy S20 Plus' domino-style camera block will house four cameras, with a new 1.8μm 12MP main sensor that will be accompanied by ultra-wide, telephoto and macro shooters.
While that camera setup is impressive in its own right, it's believed that Samsung will be saving its major camera upgrades this year for the rumored Galaxy S20 Ultra, which is expected to be the S20 line's most high-end model.
The leaked photos also show a phone that looks similar to the newly announced Samsung Galaxy A71 that the company unveiled ahead of CES 2020. It may be a lot of the design will be shared, but it's unlikely to sport similar spec to Samsung's mid-range phone.
Of course, none of this is set in stone just yet – we'll have to wait until the phones are officially unveiled at Samsung's Unpacked event on February 11 to know for sure.
