The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to launch in August, and we now have the
first details of Samsung?s plans for the big event.
As reported by South Korea publication,The Korea Herald
[https://www.sammobile.com/news/looks-like-samsung-made-decision-galaxy-note-20-event/] ), Samsung is planning an online-only event to reveal the Galaxy Note 20 and
Galaxy Note 20 Plus. This would be the first-ever Samsung Unpacked event that
would be completely online.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced smartphone OEMs to either delay their product
launches or just launch them via a simple press release. Some have also taken
the online route for their product launches and it looks like Samsung is also
planning on doing the same.
Samsung, usually tends to hold two Unpacked events every year. The one held in
the first half of the year is used by the company to unveil its flagship Galaxy
S series offering, while the second one is used to launch the Galaxy Note. The
company already held an Unpacked event in February this year for the Galaxy S20
launch, but for the Galaxy Note 20, it has decided to hold an online-only event.
The move makes sense as holding a launch event with hundreds of people in one
auditorium with coronavirus around does not really sound like a good idea.
The good news is that despite the online-event, Samsung still plans on
announcing the Galaxy Note 20 series in August this year. And if rumors are to
be believed, the company might also launch the Galaxy Fold 2 at the same event.
As for the Galaxy Note 20 itself, leaks indicate there will be the Note 20 and
Note 20+ this year, with the latter using a 6.87-inch QHD+ AMOLED LPTO panel
with 120Hz variable refresh rate which should make it the most efficient
implementation of a high refresh rate panel on the market.
In addition, the Note 20 phones are expected to sport a new Sonic Max
fingerprint sensor from Qualcomm that?s 17 times larger and can read two
fingerprints at once. On the camera front, the Galaxy Note 20 Plus may steal the
108MP sensor from the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but rumor has it is that the 100x Space
Zoom won?t feature on the Note 20 lineup. The Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note
20 Plus will also allegedly pack larger batteries and even a standard 16GB of
