In two weeks, Samsung will be holding its 2020 Galaxy Unpacked event. It will reveal a plethora of new devices on August 5 including the new Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Watch 3, and Galaxy Beans. Despite the Unpacked event nearing the shores, Samsung has begun sending invites for its Life Unstoppable even which is scheduled for September 2. A few weeks ago, Samsung announced that it will not attend IFA Berlin this year due to COVID-19 concerns. Apparently, Samsung Life Unstoppable event its the company’s answer to IFA 2020.
IFA 2020 will not be open to the public this year, just for journalists. However, Samsung still believes that this won’t be enough to ensure the safety of its employees. Samsung Life Unstoppable event will be online only and the only description of the event is that it will be a 45 minute “virtual and dynamic journey” of Samsung’s newest products.

During the trade fair, we have the company’s remaining portfolio of products including home appliances, TVs, audio systems, and some mid-range phones. All these products would perfectly fit into an event with the “Life Unstoppable” name. That said, the company’s new event will take place on September 2 from 10 AM CET.
Pricing for the company’s new foldable phones leaked in the wild
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G will go on pre-order this Wednesday. A report from ETNews, states that it will cost the same as the original Galaxy Z Flip, which is KRW 1.65 million or $1,370. This is a good thing, after all, the new variant comes with a chipset that is far better than the Snapdragon 855+. The Snapdragon 865 Plus is not only better than the last year’s SoC but also better than the vanilla SD865 thanks to its 3.09 clock speed.
