Samsung isn’t even planning to reveal the Galaxy S20 until Feb. 11, but we already have so many details about it that there won’t be much left to reveal. Interestingly, the Galaxy S20 wallpapers have even been leaked—something that doesn’t usually occur until after a device has been officially unveiled.
Galaxy S20 wallpapers leaked
Max Weinbach of XDA Developers managed to get his hands on the Galaxy S20 wallpapers. He shared eight wallpapers and two videos that Samsung will release with the S20 line-up. His source also sent a picture of the Galaxy S20, and it’s clear that the device will include many more wallpapers than just those Weinbach shared.
He noted that Samsung usually matches its wallpapers to the colors of its phones. Thus, the pink, blue, black and white Galaxy S20 wallpapers suggest that those will be the colors of the phone.
One thing that’s interesting about the Galaxy S20 wallpapers is that they aren’t like any of the other wallpapers Samsung has included in past devices. Three of the wallpapers look like the top of a tree with feathered leaves, while the black one looks like an image of bubbles that was taken underwater. All four of them are quite compelling and would make an excellent addition to almost any handset.

Samsung device owners can use the videos that are included in the package as their lock screen animation to make their device look like the Galaxy S20 when it’s unlocked.
Photos of Samsung’s next great device
XDA Developers also shared some photos of the Galaxy S20 Plus. Rumors have long referred to the device as the Galaxy S11, but the latest reports indicate that Samsung will be going with the S20 moniker instead, possibly a reference to the year 2020.
A source who wanted to remain anonymous sent the photos of the Galaxy S20 Plus to XDA Developers. The picture of the back of the device shows four camera lenses, a flash and what appears to be a hole for a microphone. The right side of the phone holds a volume up and down key and the power button. One notable omission is the Bixby button, which appeared on the S10 line-up last year.
The front of the Galaxy S20 apparently has small bezels with an Infinity-O display. The source said the phone felt rather similar to the Pixel 2 XL. The hole punch for the selfie camera is smaller than the one on the Galaxy Note 10, and it’s in the center of the device’s display. The device will also come with a pre-installed scree protector like the Galaxy S10 and Note 10.
According to XDA Developers, the S20 Plus will actually be the mid-range member of the S20 line-up, unlike past years when it was the top of the line. The device will reportedly be a big bigger than the standard S20, but it won’t have the high-end camera technology that’s been reserved for the so-called “Galaxy S20 Ultra.”
