Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 event is happening

Samsung has stated that it will hold the next Galaxy unpacked event on the 5th of August at 10 AM ET. Along with its folding unit, the Galaxy Fold, it is expected that Samsung announces its latest line-up of Galaxy Note 20 smartphones.

Samsung’s teaser is fairly mysterious, while the copper color splash suits the leaked photos of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra — the rumoured flagship of the line-up — reported accidentally on the Samsung Russian site in early July.

Rumours, although an announcement will come within less than a month, remain uncharacteristically silent. Although one specific Note 20 Ultra device has already reached the public. A triple rear camera array is reportedly featured in the new flagship phone, including a periscope-style lens, together with a 4th sensor, which seems to be either a 3D ToF sensor or a laser autofocus.

Expect the regular specifications of the Snapdragon 865 from Qualcom, or maybe even the alleged Snapdragon 865+, as was the case with the S20 range earlier this year. In addition to a 120Hz refresh rate display, the 5G will be the norm for the latest Notes. Note 20 will, of course, include an S-Pen, possibly with a new trick or two up its sleeve.

Samsung is also anticipated to have two models — one small and another large version of the Note 20 ultra — with at least two GalaxyNote 20 — although details of the differences, apart from the size, are not clear.

Followup to the Galaxy Fold — allegedly called the Galaxy Z Fold 2, — is rumorized to feature a larger 7.7-inch display, possibly with a cut-out camera similar to other Samsung flagship phones. Specs are also improved probably, even if no details are known yet.

Last but not least, the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is could also be announced, which was already revealed thanks to the courtesy of the TENAA certification center in China. The Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, and a subtle drop in total battery capacity compared with the previous LTE version are expected with this model.
