Some sources suggested that Samsung may have to delay the Galaxy Note 20 and Fold 2 launch event due to the current situation in the world, the virus outbreak. Well, if this report is to be believed, that won’t happen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 & Fold 2 won’t face delays, report claims
Korea Herald actually got this information from an unnamed ‘industry insider’. He claims that “preparations are underway for the upcoming Galaxy Note launch, and there is no delay”, plain and simple.
This is yet another source that suggests that the Galaxy Note 20 and Fold 2 will be announced at the same time. That is not surprising as the Galaxy Z Flip launched alongside the Galaxy S20, while the Galaxy Fold was announced alongside the Galaxy S10.
If there are no delays planned, then the event will probably take place sometime in August. That is the usual timeframe when Samsung announces its new Galaxy Note series devices.
Depending on how the situation with the outbreak unfolds, Samsung may be forced to host an online-only event. Of course, the whole situation may completely change by August, in which case we may actually get a physical event.
The Galaxy Note 20 will probably look somewhat similar to the Galaxy S20 series
We did not exactly see any Galaxy Note 20 design leaks, or anything of the sort, only third-party concept images. It’s safe to assume that the phone will somewhat resemble the Galaxy S20 series, though.
The device is rumored to include a centered display camera hole, and very thin bezels. It will also probably include sharper corners than the Galaxy S20 series. On top of that, you can expect metal + glass / ceramic build.
The phone will probably include a camera setup from the Galaxy S20+, at least that’s what the rumors have been saying. Android 10 will come pre-installed on the device, along with Samsung’s One UI skin.
The Snapdragon 865 will fuel the device in the US and China, while users in Europe and India will probably get the Exynos 990 variant. We will probably see two Galaxy Note 20 devices, if not three.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to offer a more appealing design than its predecessor, and come with an ultra-thin glass (UTG) display. It is expected to sport a display camera hole, and not that unseemly notch like its predecessor.
The device will probably also include a larger secondary display on the outside. More Galaxy Note 20 and Fold 2 leaks will surface in the coming weeks / months, so stay tuned.
