Ice Universe, a reliable Samsung leakster took to Twitter to share the information. According to him, the event is scheduled for August 5. This is expected to be the first-ever major launch from the Korean giant that will be an online-only affair. Historically too, Samsung has unveiled its Note series flagships in early August, adding substance to the leak. Besides, this isn’t the first time we’re hearing August 5 as the launch date. It will be the first of many high-profile launches expected in this quarter.
For 2020, two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 are expected, with a regular and a Plus/Ultra variant. The bigger variant should bring a QHD+ panel while the smaller one might be limited to FHD+. The refresh rate will be 120Hz, but it’s unclear if it can be toggled in tandem with the highest resolution. It is also said to be a return to a flat display too.
The cameras are said to take a page from the S20 series, with a 108MP primary shooter, followed by an ultra-wide and a telephoto lens. The Note 20 Ultra might add a ToF depth sensor to the mix.
