Photos of Samsung's next flagship phone have leaked online a month ahead of its official Unpacked event in February.
XDA Developers reporter Max Weinbach was the first to unveil the leak, with three images of the new phone - the opening screen of which revealed its name to be the "Samsung Galaxy S20." This represents a break from the current line of flagship phones, which ends in the Galaxy S11.
The photo of the back of the phone revealed four camera lenses, plus a flash and what Weinbach guesses to be a microphone hole. Pasted to the back was also a sticker saying "do not leak info."
It's likely that Samsung will release three S20 phones, and Weinbach reports that the images depict the mid-range S20+ phone. There'll also be a plain old Galaxy S20, and the top-end Galaxy S20 Ultra with more impressive camera features.
The front of the phone has a notably small bezel, and the source who supplied the images told Weinbach it has a much less curved display than its predecessors.
There also appears to be no dedicated Bixby button to call up Samsung's digital assistant.
Samsung is also tipped to unveil a second folding smartphone to follow on from the infamous Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked conference on February 11, reportedly called the "Galaxy Bloom."
