Samsung officially announces its next Galaxy Unpacked event for August 5th
Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked events are some of the biggest product launches of the year. At the event, we finally get to see what Samsung, the largest smartphone brand in the world, has been working on for the last year. With the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy S20 having launched earlier this year, we’re now expecting to see the Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy Note 20 at the next Galaxy Unpacked event. Samsung usually hosts its Unpacked events in person, but this year the company has opted for an online-only event due to COVID-19. Today, Samsung has confirmed that its virtual Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on August 5th at 10:00 AM EST.
During the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Tab S7, and other devices like the Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Buds Live. We recently saw renders of both the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in the “Mystic Bronze” colorway as well as renders of the Tab S7 and Tab S7+. We haven’t seen images of the rumored Z Fold 2, but we’ve seen plenty of renders of the Galaxy Watch 3 already.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is rumored to launch with a 60Hz 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865/Exynos 990, 25W fast charging, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a camera setup similar to the Galaxy S20. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is rumored to have a WQHD+ resolution display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 4,500 mAh battery, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865/Exynos 990, and an improved 108MP main sensor with laser autofocus. The Z Flip 5G is going to be a Galaxy Z Flip but with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and 5G support, while the Galaxy Fold 2 is rumored to sport a major redesign with some much-needed improvements.
I’m personally really excited about the next Galaxy Unpacked and all of these new devices. The Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Fold are some of my favorite devices, so I’m hoping to see even better versions of them later this year. The Galaxy Note 20, too, seems to have all the improvements a new Note phone for this year should have. As we get closer to Galaxy Unpacked, keep an eye on the XDA Portal for more information on these devices.
