Today, we finally got the launch date of the next-gen Samsung flagship. It turns out the Korean manufacturer will hold a Galaxy Unpacked press conference on August 5 at 10 a.m. As you can see, this year’s press conference is earlier than in previous years. Because of the new coronavirus epidemic, this press conference may be held online. Previously, we have been thinking that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will be listed on July 21.
Previously, Samsung was launching the Galaxy Note series in mid-to-late August each year. In addition, Samsung should also launch the successor to the Galaxy Fold folding screen smartphone. It may be the second generation of the Galaxy Fold or the second generation of the Galaxy Z Flip.
Anyways, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will have three models: Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20+, and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Though all three models are going to sport quite high-end features, the most interesting option is the latter.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra should use four sensors on the back. They will include the main sensor with a resolution of 108-megapixels. At the same time, the company is rumored to abandon the 100x digital zoom in favor of a 50x zoom. This information comes from the very reliable Roland Quandt from Winfuture.de. Of course, this might not be a big surprise, after all, the S20 Ultra undoubtedly has its 108MP as the main selling point. For that reason, even the first rumors were assuming the presence of the very same sensor on the Note 20 Ultra. However, Quandt states that he’s “seen hard evidence” of the presence of a 108MP camera on this smartphone. Given to the tipster’s good track record, the Note 20 Ultra is likely arriving with this sensor.
We just hope that this time around, the phone will not present the same issues as the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The high-end flagship had several issues with the camera not focusing properly. Samsung provided several updates to address this issue. However, it wasn’t enough to avoid this camera from being marked as problematic. Despite this fact, we’ll give a vote of confidence to the South-Korean maker. After all, the company is good in learning with its mistakes. The whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco serves as an example.
