What to expect from Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event
Samsung has invited the media to explore its “latest Galaxy Devices”. Samsung’s invite also shows a splash of copper. Given the leaked images of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in a new copper shade, we can assume Samsung is teasing it will unveil the Galaxy Note 20 series and announce a color option for it.
The company also sent out a tweet teasing a new foldable device. The tweet read: “A new look unfolds. 05.08.2020”. There was also a video showing a copper ball folding out into a butterfly, hinting at the reveal of the Galaxy Fold successor.
Galaxy Note 20
The Galaxy Note 20 series will be a premium range separate from the Galaxy 20 series. It will reportedly feature a triple rear camera array with a periscope-style lens and perhaps a 3D ToF sensor or laser autofocus.
It might also include the Snapdragon 865, 5G by default, a 120Hz refresh rate display option, and, obviously, an upgraded S-Pen. At least two models – a smaller Galaxy Note 20, and a larger Note 20 Ultra – could debut in August.
Galaxy Z Fold 2
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the expected name of the successor to the original vertical-folding Galaxy Fold. It is expected to come with a 7.7.-inch internal display and a 6.3-inch external display. A punch-hole front camera is rumoured and it is thought the camera load out will match that of the Samsung Galaxy S20.
There is speculation that Samsung is readying a slew of other devices to announce late this summer. There could be a Galaxy Z Flip 5G unveiled during Samsung’s Unpacked event in August, as well as a new Galaxy Watch 2 – which is thought to be called Galaxy Watch 3.
