The last time the Korean Giant Samsung electronics hosted a separate event to unveil Galaxy Note 10 series and Galaxy Fold. But this time the company is planning not to hold separate events to release the successors of both smartphones. In fact, it is going to be unveiled at a dedicated event in the coming month. On August 5 Samsung is expected to host an Unpacked 2020 digital event amid the coronavirus pandemic. At the launch event, the company will unveil Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series and the Galaxy Fold 2 which is the successor of Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Fold that were introduced last year in 2019.
A report by a South Korean publication The Dong-A Ilbo suggests that Samsung Electronics will hold an event to unveil new Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Fold 2, on August 5 at the Unpacked 2020. This time the company has decided to take the support of online launch events instead of inviting domestic and overseas media companies due to coronavirus.
A staff member of Samsung Electronics has revealed to the publisher that, “Internal discussions are taking place, but the plan to hold the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5 is being reviewed favorably,” That means that the company’s flagship devices are expected to get launched in the second half of the year. Like always the Unpacked event is going to take place in New York.
An industry insider also revealed that “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,” So besides the pandemic, the anti-racism protests in the US is another reason that Samsung will go for a virtual event to launch Galaxy Note 20 series and the Galaxy Fold 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is most likely to be offered in two variants: a regular 6.7-inch display while the Plus variant will come with a 6.9-inch display. The speculations are being made that this time Galaxy Note 20 Plus will change to Ulta.
Prior to the launch, the pricing of Samsung’s upcoming foldable phone’s pricing has also been leaked on the web. As per a leak Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to be priced between $1,880 and $1895 that translates to Rs 1,44,000 whereas the sipping of the devices will begin later in September. The second generation of Galaxy Fold will retain the form factor of its predecessor but this time it will come with a bigger display, upgraded cameras, SPen and 5G support.
