Samsung is expected to unveil its 2020 Galaxy line-up on February 11.

The much-anticipated device in one variant is likely to cost Rs 39,999 - giving Chinese player OnePlus a tough competition in this price segment, industry sources told IANS on Saturday. The device is also said to come with a 2.5D glass instead of the curved glass found in earlier launched Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

Ahead of the announcement, a trio of pictures appeared on Twitter over the weekend, and they seemingly confirm not only the new name, but the four-camera setup on the back, and a slightly changed overall design for the S20-series. The front is similar to the Galaxy S10 Lite and the back is also rectangular. But Samsung is scrapping this feature on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, presumably because 100x zoom is more than enough for most people and the sole use of hybrid zoom will ensure better photos.

Samsung didn't say when the new device will be released. Button wise there's only a volume rocker and a power button, so good bye Bixby button.

The Galaxy S10 Lite will include a 48-megapixel main camera, 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel macro sensors, as well as the new "Super Steady OIS" (optical image stabilization).

Single Take Photo is a new camera mode that basically instructs the user to move their phone around the subject a certain way while it captures photos and short videos. The "5G" suffix in the name also implies the standard model will be 4G only.

Samsung is going to launch three flagship models as a part of its Galaxy S20 family.

The phone is expected to come equipped with the recently announced 7nm Snapdragon 865 processor from Qualcomm.
