The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to land later in 2020, and we may have just had our best information on when to see the phone unveiled.
A new report from Korea Herald, a newspaper in Samsung’s home country, South Korea, has suggested that the company will host an online event only for Unpacked 2020 to reveal the device to the world.
An online event wouldn’t be a big surprise – we’ve seen many companies adopting this format for their launches in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic – and the report suggests that it will still take place in August.
August is generally the time when we see the Samsung Unpacked events for the Galaxy Note series, and this report suggests that the company will not delay this event due to the pandemic – what we have heard that Apple could do for the iPhone 12.
That said, the report also indicates that the exact date is unclear and that it may be subject to change in the coming months – and since this is an online-only event, the calendar event could change in the short term.
Samsung has yet to officially confirm how or when the Note 20 will launch.
None of this means that the event will be smaller than previous events in terms of what we see, as the next generation Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to be unveiled at the same event, and there could also be an affordable variant of the Original fold.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, it should be available in two sizes, the Plus variant should offer slightly better specifications.
The Plus model will likely get a display with a variable high refresh rate, with at least one of the models also 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.
