The launch date of the Galaxy Note 20 series may have surfaced as a couple of sources are pointing at the same date. According to one of the very active tipsters Ice Universe and The Dong-A ILBO publication, Samsung is holding its this year’s Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. It is going to be an online-only event, which we all know why. Presumably, Samsung will also launch the Galaxy Fold 2 at the same event.
However, these are not the only phones that will launch at the said event. According to Ice Universe, Samsung will launch a list of devices at the same event as well. These include the Galaxy Z Flip 5G version that has been in rumors for a long time now, Galaxy Tab S7, Tab S7 Plus, new Galaxy Watch.
As one would expect, the Galaxy Note 20 series is going to be a showstopper, but other devices will grab some limelight too. Looking at the list, it is clear that Samsung is aiming to launch its new phablet series, new tablets, and new smartwatch, and who knows what not at the same event.
The other source quotes a member of Samsung Electronics,
Internal discussions are taking place, but the plan to hold the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5 is being reviewed favorably.
Furthermore, the report also cites an electronics industry source,
“As COVID-19 is still spreading and anti-racism protests are worsening in the U.S., this year’s event is likely to be held online.”
If the speculated launch date is true, we may hear from Samsung itself by next month.
Galaxy Note 20 series is expected to include a new in-display fingerprint scanner called Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max. The Galaxy Note 20 Plus model is expected to feature 120Hz LTPO display and it is speculated that there is no Ultra version coming this time but the latest tip from Ice Universe in which the tipster has shared the launch date, name of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is written in the long list. The Plus variant is expected to feature the 108MP camera but with an extra sensor for autofocus.
