At the moment everything is a bit confused because of the coronavirus pandemic. Not just personal life, but also the economy. There are a lot of problems and postponements of new products etc. But at Samsung, everything seems to be going according to plans. According to some new reports, the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Fold 2 in August is not affected. Everything is going as planned.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2 will be announced in August despite the pandemic
The pandemic will not lead Samsung to postpone the UNPACKED event in August. But that doesn’t mean that it will be a real on-site event. Of course, it could also be an online event.
Samsung is already preparing for a worst-case scenario in which the global pandemic will keep its momentum in the second half of the year and will force the company to launch its next flagship products exclusively online, according to the same sources.
Another factor that we need to take into consideration is how the current wave of coronavirus outbreaks will affect Samsung’s supply chain. Especially on the production lines in Vietnam. This could force Samsung to postpone the actual release of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2. So there are still many question marks.
It is worth to mention that yesterday, we told you that Samsung is apparently planning to launch the Galaxy Fold 2. However, this time Samsung plans to push the price down a bit and also offer a variant with 256 GB capacity.
We do not know for sure whether Samsung will actually launch its next foldable as the Galaxy Fold 2 or maybe choose a different name. The first Galaxy Fold had to deal with some really bad problems. It had to do with the durability of the display and ultimately led to several delays. We hope that Samsung will fix this with this new model.
