Let's get this out of the way: what will be the names of Samsung's upcoming smartphones? 

Starting with the Galaxy S series, the common consensus was that the Galaxy S11 series would be announced at the event. However, three separate reports have suggested otherwise. Reliable tipster Ice Universe shared in December 2019 that Samsung could debut them as the Galaxy S20 as "next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning".

WinFuture corroborated the rumour; it claimed that Samsung would be dropping the "e" moniker from the Galaxy S series (such as the S10e model) and adding an "Ultra" moniker for the flagship model. WinFuture suggested that the models are likely to be called the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra.

@MaxWinebach posted photos of a phone with the boot screen showing "Galaxy S20+ 5G", which is the strongest evidence yet of the new naming convention. 

As for the next foldable phone, it was commonly referred as the Galaxy Fold 2. However, Ice Universe believed it is branded as the Galaxy Z Flip.
