For the past few years, Samsung has been presenting its flagship devices at a special Unpacked event twice a year in New York – first in February for the Galaxy S line, and then in August for the Galaxy Note series. This year, the brand plans to show the new Galaxy S20 at the end of winter, but the next event will not be in August anymore, apparently due to the global epidemic. For a long time, various speculations appeared on the network about exactly how the tech giant will show its new products to the world, and now Samsung has finally put an end to this lengthy discussion by making the final decision regarding the presentation of Note 20.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 presentation will be an online-only event
Messages about the possible transfer of the event to online-only have appeared even before the brand’s first presentation, and now it has become completely clear that the classic format of the Samsung event is fundamentally at odds with the generally accepted principles of social distance.
Today, a reliable source from South Korea reports that the Galaxy Note 20 presentation will be exclusively online. It is worth noting that this will not be a new experience for the company, because it regularly launches new tablets, mid-range smartphones and even wearable devices with a simple press release.
So far, Samsung has not given any comments on this subject. But we expect that officially the transition to the new format will be announced shortly before the event.

Galaxy Note 20 recent leaks
At the moment, hardly a week goes by without new information on the Galaxy Note 20 from Samsung. The details that has recently emerged could, however, not be admired by the fans. Because the speculated battery capacities are said to be lower than expected.
It will probably not be long before we see the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the larger Note 20+. This could also explain the increased frequency of leaks. But now a detail appeared that could possibly upset the fans, because it affects the battery capacity of the two Note models, which are said to be significantly lower than the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The Dutch website GalaxyClub is responsible for the leak. It got its hands on information about the battery. The smaller Note 20 should offer around 4,000 mAh (mAh) and the Note 20+ a battery with 4,500 mAh. For comparison: The Galaxy S20 Ultra has a whopping 5,000 mAh.
Could the Galaxy Note 20+ have a significantly low battery life? The question is justified, after all, the Galaxy Note 10+ had only 4,300mAh. The new model has a slighttly larger display, adding an extra 200mAh capacity.
However, a new Samsung Exynos processor will be in use in the GalaxyNote20+. The CPU should be have smaller structure and could therefore also work more energy-efficiently. The LTPO-based display should also save battery life in some situations thanks to a variable refresh rate. Overall, the Note 20+ could have a battery life similar to that of the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Whether better or worse, remains to be seen.
