Samsung Galaxy S11 Codename Leaked Online, Unique Design Expected
World’s most selling smartphone OEM Samsung launched its latest flagships, the Galaxy S10 series back in the month of February. The company is known for refreshing its flagship lineup twice a year, once in the first quarter of the year with the Galaxy S series; and the Note series in the second half. While details about the Note 10 have just started to trickle (1,2,3), a renowned and trustworthy leaker of Samsung products has shared the codename of the purported Samsung Galaxy S11 which is expected to release next year. The handset is allegedly called “Picasso”.
Galaxy S11 Codename
Like mentioned above, the upcoming Galaxy S11 flagship smartphone from Samsung is claimed to be codenamed “Picasso”. If not known, Pablo Picasso was a famous Spanish artist in the 20th century who is known for many sculptures and paintings like Guernica made in the year 1937. While the leak doesn’t mention anything other than the code by which the device is referred to as inside the company’s Research & Development team; it is speculated the name is related to the handset’s design. Samsung already made a big leap in the deisgn department with the Galaxy S10 series. The company implemented the hole punch display and is credited with bringing it to the mainstream market. The upcoming Galaxy S11 may also be a revolutionary step in terms of design.
The codename “Picasso” of the Samsung Galaxy S11 seems plausible; because previous leaks of the Galaxy Note 10 revealed it has the codename “Da Vinci”. This is an ode to Leonardo Da Vinci who was an Italian artist best known for his painting “Mona Lisa”. So, the sudden interest of the company in history’s best artists does give a hint that the next Galaxy flagships will be (literally) a work of art.
