The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is expected to launch in August and now we have the first details of Samsung’s plans for the big event.
According to The Korea Herald outside of South Korea (via SamMobile), Samsung is planning an online event only to unveil the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus. This will be the first Samsung Unpacked event of its kind, which will be entirely online.
More than 3,000 visitors reportedly attended Samsung’s latest unpacked event in San Francisco for Samsung’s launch Galaxy S20 and it just won’t fly now that the word is about the coronavirus outbreak. Although the pandemic seems to have subsided somewhat, Samsung may not hold such a large-scale event immediately after August.
The Korea Herald says Samsung Electronics is “developing a concrete plan by holding intensive meetings” regarding the hosting of online unpacked events. However, the publication that the actual date of the event is still flexible and Samsung can make a decision at the last minute.
In terms of what to expect, the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus will have larger displays of 6.42 and 6.87 inches, respectively, both of which can offer a smooth refresh rate of 120Hz. In addition, due to what is called LTPO technology, these panels could be more efficient than the expected 120Hz panels of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
In addition, phones 20 are expected to offer a new Sonic Max fingerprint sensor from Qualcomm, which is 17 times larger and can read two fingerprints at once. On the front of the camera, the Galaxy Note 20 Plus may steal a 108MP sensor from the Galaxy S20 Ultra, but rumor has it that 100x Space Zoom will not come with the ride.
Both the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus will claim to have larger batteries and perhaps the standard 16 GB of RAM. The two phones were set to debut with the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 when Samsung held its online event this August.
