Despite Huawei’s recent woes, it is still putting up a good fight in the smartphone market. A recent report claims that the Chinese manufacturer has toppled Samsung to become the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. From September, Apple will be gearing up to unveil the iPhone 12 series. This means that the competition will even be more intense. Top phone makers like Samsung need a strategy otherwise, it will run out of juice. According to Korean media ETnews, Samsung Electronics plans to launch a new “strategic” smartphone every month from August to October. The company will unveil the Galaxy Note 20 series in August. In September, it will launch the Galaxy Fold 2″ while the Samsung Galaxy S20 Lite (Fan Edition) will arrive in October.
Gizchina News of the week
According to reports, the new Samsung Galaxy S20 model is under development. Sources claim that the model number is SM-G780 (global) and SM-G781 (United States). For those keeping tabs, the Galaxy S10 Lite has model number SM-G770. This phone uses the name “Galaxy S20 fan” version internally and there will be three versions. The SM-G780 will be available worldwide, in 5G and 4G versions. However, SM-G781 will only provide the 5G version. As of now, the details of this smartphone are not clear but it will have at least 128GB of internal storage. This device will also run the Android 10 system using One UI 2.5.
We will have to keep our fingers crossed to see exactly what this smartphone will have to offer. Recall that the Galaxy S10 series also has a Lite variant. The most interesting part of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is probably its processor. This smartphone ships with a Snapdragon 855 globally. This is the same chip that the entire Galaxy S10 series uses. If this is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S120 Lite, then this smartphone will arrive with the Snapdragon 865.
Outside the U.S., the Samsung Galaxy S20 series uses the Samsung Exynos 990 SoC. Many users are not too keen on Exynos 990’s performance. If the Galaxy S20 Lite uses an SD856 SoC, then this device will probably perform better in terms of sales. The processor may attract a couple of buyers who shied away because of the Exynos chip. The Samsung Galaxy S20 series had a rough start for a couple of reasons. The global coronavirus pandemic did not help matters coupled with the camera software issues. However, the series is bouncing back and it is now performing as expected.
