Many Samsung fans are looking forward to the release of the next device in the Note range, an event that tends to take place in August.
According to a reliable source, Samsung is working on an online event during which it will unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Plus. The occasion will mark the first online-only Samsung Unpacked event held by the company.
The Samsung Unpacked event for the Samsung S20 attracted more than 3,000 visitors, but such large- scale events are no longer allowed as they can favor the spread of coronavirus.
The shift to online
The 2019 release event for the Note 10 took place in a packed building. Even if Samsung attempted to facilitate distancing by leaving gaps between seats, it is unlikely that it would managed to maintain social distancing regulations during the hands-on phase, which ussualy tends to be the most popular part of the event.
Samsung is hard at work on a strategy related to the online event, but a date hasn’t been set in stone, and a surprise announcement could be offered.
Bigger, faster, better
The next range of Samsung Galaxy Note devices will come with some major improvements. One of the main boons is represented by a larger screen as the standard version will come with a 6.42-inch panel while the Plus version will sport a 6.87 panel. Both panels may offer an impressive 120Hz refresh rate, and at least one of them may include LTPO, an new technology that will boost power efficiency.
Another significant addition would be the new Sonic Max fingerprint sensor developed by Qualcomm, which offers a larger scanning surface and can read to fingerprint simultaneously.
Larger batteries and more RAM are also expected, and some believe that Samsung will include 16GB of RAM, which is more than enough to handle several tasks at the same time without problems.
