Samsung Unpacked 2020: Foldable phone, smartwatches and other products expected besides Galaxy Note 20 smartphones
Samsung yesterday dropped the official ‘Galaxy Unpacked' teaser invite, revealing August 5 as the date. While the event is widely expected to witness the launch of Galaxy Note 20 smartphone series, there are some other devices that could launch alongside the handset as well. We are talking about foldable smartphones, smartwatches and even those ‘bean-shaped' earbuds. Here's a quick recap of everything that is rumoured to arrive during the Galaxy Note 20 launch.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
Galaxy Watch 3 is one of the most rumoured wearable products to arrive this year. The smart watch has also been leaked a few times and has even been mentioned in one of the Samsung support pages. Rumours indicate that there could be variants of the watch as well - possibly the 41mm and 44mm models. Some reports add that Galaxy Watch 3 could arrive in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + LTE versions too. Some of the features expected are 1.2-inch/1.4-inch AMOLED display, IP68 certification, 5ATM water resistance, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, 340mAh battery, ECG support and Tizen OS.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 2
This foldable phone has also been rumoured since months now. It was widely expected to arrive earlier this year but that didn't happen. The handset may be more refined this time as per leaks and renders. There could be more screen space on the inside with a punch hole camera and a larger screen on the outside. The interior and exterior displays of the Galaxy Fold 2 could be bigger by 0.4 and 1.63 inches, respectively. To put things in perspective, Galaxy Fold opens up to a 7.3-inch display and has a 4.6-inch display on the exterior. Also expected are a 12-megapixel primary sensor, a 64-megapixel telephoto lens and a 16-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens. There could be two variants of this based on 256GB and 512GB inbuilt storage.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G
The Galaxy Z Flip 5G may get an upgrade this time of the year with a support for 5G connectivity. We don't expect the 5G version to come with a brand new design or any other refinements. The inbuilt specs such as RAM, storage and battery may get a slight bump-up. Rest could possibly stay the same as per rumours and leaks from reports.
Samsung Galaxy ‘Bean' Buds
There seems to be a special interest for this piece of hardware as these are said to be the South Korean tech firm's most compact earbuds ever. Based on the recently leaked images, the buds were seen in the shape of a ‘bean', indicating more sophistication and improvements in design by Samsung. The details on the audio product are not yet known though.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series
And of course, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 has been rumoured ever since the launch of Galaxy S20 earlier this year. We're already heard a lot about it and the recent leaks showing the Mystic Bronze and black colour models leave nothing to our imagination. The handset is expected to include three rear cameras and a more feature-rich S Pen. The series may comprise of at least two handsets - Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus. Besides a QHD AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, one can also expect them to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor and OneUI 2.5, which is still in beta. Other rumoured specs include 16GB RAM, 108-megapixel camera and a larger battery than Note 10.
