    I think it's goofy of them to call it the S20. They should just keep going in order. Also not a fan of how Android ditched the desert names for the OS with 10. Not sure what the heck desert starts with Q but they could have come up with something.
    Does it really matter what they call the device?
    There are deserts with the letter Q but they just made a choice to stop. They would have had to stop after Z anyway.

    If its default 5G that will cause price hike. 5G is too experimental at this stage. Should be a cheaper 4G variant

    Of course it doesn't really matter but the thread is asking for opinions. I think it's stupid to just skip to S20. It makes no sense.

    I know they'd have to stop with the desserts at Z but that wouldn't be for several years. I like the tradition of having the OS named after desserts.

    Yeah first they skip the note 6 name to sync it with the S version numbers and now they seem to be aligning with the year. I am assuming the Note line will also jump to 20 if that's the case.

    Apple skipped from 8 to 11, so 10 to 20? Sure why not. As long as the price doesn't double.

    On a list of things to worry about, this would fall somewhere around #761. Right around if my local pizza joint does a good job of keeping the toilet paper dispenser full.

    So Huawei are the only ones allowed to copy other manufacturers?

    From a marketing perspective, it's a good move. S11 sounds like just another Samsung device. S20 will peak curiosity.

    Technically they skipped 8 to X (10) so they just missed 9. Lol

    X is not a number. It's a letter. Technically.

    "how do you feel about the S11 being called the S20?"

    Well, the same way I felt about Apple calling the iPhone 7S "iPhone 8", when we all know it was a 7S.

    Changing it up for the sake of changing it up lol

    I think they're doing it to change it up from apple which makes sense. I can't tell you how many people would confuse iPhone 6s for Galaxy s6 and iPhone 7 for galaxy s7 when I worked in wireless.

    I don't care what they call it but its looking better by the day. Just a few more months...
    I like the new numbering scheme. Now it takes with the calendar year. A Galaxy Note 42 will come out in 2042. No more questions as to which year a phone came out !

    Until they get sick of it in another 10 years, that is. Or more appropriately Apple comes up with a more clever way of naming their devices and Samsung is forced to follow suit. Samsung - always the bride's maid, never the bride.

    It's not bad. I would have rathered the S11 name - but that being said, I guess it does match well with the whole New Year and 2020 thing. That's some pretty good marketing from Samsung.

    Not like it was ever a problem to begin with. It takes 5 seconds on Google to find that kind of information.

    If the 2020 Galaxy S phone is the 11th iteration, then it only makes sense that it's called S11.

    There is gonna be far, far less difference in design between the S10 and S11/20 (and between S11/20 to S12/21) than those between the S2 and S3, or S3 to S4.

    Design changes have almost completely stagnated.
