If the reports surfacing online are to be believed, for the first time, Samsung might launch a flagship smartphone via an online-only event.
Usually, Samsung launches all its flagship smartphones like the Note series and the S series at the “Samsung Unpacked” event. Every year, the event will be held physically in the US.
Earlier this year, Samsung launched Samsung Galaxy S20 series at an Unpacked event but according to the reports, this time, the second unpacked event will be held online in a digital format for the first time.
Almost all other leading smartphone manufacturers are launching their smartphones and other products via an online-only event or through a simple press release. For example, the much-hyped OnePlus 8 series was launched via an online-only event while the iPhone SE 2 was launched by Apple through a simple press release only.
As the COVID-19 pandemic issues still exist, Samsung has no other way other than launching the device in an online-only event. Social distancing should be maintained in order to curb the spread of the virus.
Not many details regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 are available yet. But a few rumors and leaks surfaced online suggests that the device might be powered by the Exynos 992 SoC and might feature a triple camera setup to the back. The primary camera is expected to be the 108MP Bright HM1 sensor from Samsung itself.
There are no official statements regarding the same. We might want to wait for a little longer for the company to make an official announcement so take it with a pinch of salt.
