What does all this mean? Well we definitely know we’re getting an S20 and an S20 Plus, but what remains unsure is if the S20 Ultra will indeed be called the S20 Ultra and if this device will instead be the budget device of the three, being called something different in the process as interestingly the S20 Ultra will now have the smallest range of supporting accessories according to part numbers we’ve received when cross-referenced with what appears on Samsung’s support pages.
