Samsung Announces their August Smartphone Event plus Apple Music's Time-Synced Lyrics Feature is now available on their Smart TVs
Samsung has announced that their online-only Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on August 5. Live streaming of the event will be available at Samsung Global Newsroom 10 a.m. ET, 7 a.m. PST. So what could Samsung be launching at this event?
Firstly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is rumored to launch with a 60Hz 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865/Exynos 990, 25W fast charging, a 4,000 mAh battery, and a camera setup similar to the Galaxy S20.
Secondly, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is rumored to have a WQHD+ resolution display with a 120Hz refresh rate, 4,500 mAh battery, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865/Exynos 990, and an improved 108MP main sensor with laser autofocus.
And lastly, the Z Flip 5G is going to be a Galaxy Z Flip but with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and 5G support, while the Galaxy Fold 2 is rumored to sport a major redesign with some much-needed improvements.
While Samsung's revised Galaxy Fold 2 is expected either in September or October, a new patent from Samsung regarding folding devices pointed to a new curved edge being considered for a "future" version of the device that will give it a cleaner look when the device is closed. It's unlikely that this feature presented in the patent image below will debut this year, but you never know.
