Samsung follows a tradition of unveiling its flagship Galaxy S-series smartphones in February. Earlier, according to IceUniverse, the upcoming Galaxy S11 was scheduled to launch on February 18th. However, a new report by Israeli website Girafa claims that the smartphone may be announced on February 11th. With MWC scheduled for the last week of February, it seems like Samsung will schedule the launch event much earlier than the trade show. This gives the brand some extra time between its announcements and phones debuting at MWC from other manufacturers. To recall, Samsung had launched the Galaxy S10 a few days ahead of MWC last year.
The Galaxy S11 launch event will reportedly take place in San Fransico. The Galaxy S10 was also announced at the same location. Alongside the Galaxy S11, Samsung is also expected to unveil its second-generation foldable smartphone – the Galaxy Fold 2. It’s still unclear where the Israeli blog got this information from. The report also suggests that the Galaxy Buds 2 will be launched alongside. If the launch date is accurate, it would give Samsung an advantage over its Android rivals which plan to debut their products at MWC. A few days ago, a tweet by IceUniverse revealed that the upcoming Galaxy S11 may be called the Galaxy S20. Since the next year is 2020 and 20 is a new beginning, Samsung might drop the S11 moniker and start the lineup with S20. This is just speculation, so readers are advised to take this information with a pinch of salt.
Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning.

Samsung is yet to reveal the date of its Unpacked event. The brand may announce it in the coming weeks as the Galaxy S10’s date was announced in the second week of January. Also, CES 2020 will take place from January 7th to 10th in Las Vegas, US. Samsung is expected to debut the much-awaited Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite at the event.
