If reports doing the rounds online are anything to go by, Samsung will hold an event to unveil the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Fold 2 on Aug. 5.
Samsung is unlikely to invite both domestic, as well as overseas media companies along with those associated with the relevant industry citing the ongoing pandemic. The South Korean tech behemoth is to launch the devices through online live broadcasting instead.
This will be Samsung’s first online-only Unpacked event. According to a Samsung Electronics member, the plan to hold the Galaxy Unpacked event later this year is favorably being reviewed through internal discussions. The company traditionally unveils new smartphones for the second quarter of the year in New York in Aug.
An electronics industry source says Samsung is likely to hold this year’s Unpacked event online due to the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing protests against racial discrimination in the United States. This year’s event will witness the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 20 series and the Galaxy Fold 2. The Galaxy Note 20 series comprises a regular model that features a 6.7-inch display and the Plus model that has a 6.9-inch display. There’s hearsay that the moniker Note 20 Plus will be changed to a new brand dubbed “Ultra.”
