The Samsung Galaxy Note series is one of the most popular devices announced each year in the second half of the year, during an “Unpacked” event. For Note 20, however, things could be a little different.
Each year, Samsung hosts two Unpacked events to announce its flagship S series and Note series products. With the Note 20 slated for August, Samsung would prepare for its next big launch event in the real and virtual worlds. Now a report from South Korea claims that Samsung has made a decision.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will be the first flagship smartphone from the Korean giant to be unveiled at an online event. The current pandemic guidelines prohibit mass gatherings and excessive movement of people, which would have made it almost impossible for thousands of participants to arrive at the site.
This does not mean that the event will be smaller, since even the next generation of Galaxy Fold should be unveiled at the same event, and perhaps there could be a affordable variant of the original fold.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, it should arrive in two sizes this time, the Plus variant should offer slightly better specifications. Variable high refresh rate displays will be present on both, with at least one of the models having QHD + resolution. In terms of cameras, they should sport a 108 MP main shooter, flanked by an ultra-wide and a telephoto lens. The 100x spatial zoom may not cut.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is supposed to take the best bits from the original Fold, Flip and Note 20, with an improved design, better cameras and possibly even a stylus. It should also be better priced than last year.
Samsung has not yet officially confirmed the launch of the Note 20, but knowing the current scenario, it is unlikely to be a physical event at this stage.
