Samsung Galaxy S20 series is scheduled to be launched on February 11th and 91mobiles had exclusively published the renders of all the three models in series last week to reveal their designs in their full glory. Now, Max Winebach of XDA-Developers claims the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 will hit stores on March 6th and would have preinstalled screen protectors. He also says the foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will become available to purchase on February 14th.

These are also tipped to feature improved Active Noise Isolation but no noise cancellation.
