Samsung confirms online galaxy unpacked event amid COVID-19 pandemic

Amid COVID-19 pandemic, electronics giant Samsung Group has reportedly announced that it will hold its next Galaxy Unpacked event at 10 AM ET on Wednesday, 5 August. It is anticipated that the company will announce its latest line-up of devices including Galaxy Note 20 along with the second generation of its foldable lineup, Galaxy Fold.

The teaser shows earlier leaked photos of the Galaxy note 20 Ultra – the rumored flagship– that was published inadvertently on the Samsung's Russian website in early July.

Rumors are unconventionally silent regarding the probable expectations, though an announcement is likely to come in less than a month. While the company’s Note 20 Ultra has already been buzzing around the world, a new flagship will be equipped with a three-way camera setup, including a periscope lens, and a 4th sensor, which seems to be either a 3D ToF sensor or laser autofocus.

According to sources, the audience can expect the usual bump in the specs, in addition to the 120 Hz refresh rate display feature, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 or 856 plus, and 5G for the latest Note device. The S-Pen, with possibly a new one or two features, is also expected.

Samsung is also expected to have at least two versions of Galaxy Note 20 – a smaller version of Galaxy Note 20, and the greater Note 20 Ultra.

A larger internally 7.7-inch display with probably a cut-out camera, similar to that of other Samsung flagships, is reported to be followed by the Galaxy Fold 2. Specs should also be improved, even though no details are yet available.

It is also possible to see the Galaxy Z Flip 5G launch which China’s TENAA certification center has already revealed. This smartphone will have a Snapdragon 865 plus processor and an overall slight decrease in battery capacity compared to the previous LTE version.
