Samsung Galaxy Note 20 smartphone would be launched this August, but this time around is going to be done only online.
The Industry sources according to Korea Herald disclosed that the company has made the decision to go online-only following the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease.
This would be the first time the lunching of such a smartphone won’t be held in a real live venue. Although, the exact launch date for the Note 20 is still not certain there’s every possibility that the company may move the date to a more convenient time.
There are also rumors that apart from the Note 20, Samsung may also launch a larger phone, the Note 20+ at the same event, as well as a successor to its foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold.
Also that the Galaxy Note 20 will have a 108-megapixel camera, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. This is even as Google will launch its Pixel 4a phone on July 13, also at an online-only event. Remember that Samsung usually launches its Note series smartphones in New York City over the summer.
The Last year’s Note 10 and Note 10+ were all launched on August 7, with people turning out in large numbers to grace the occasion.
But with the COVID-19 pandemic ravaging the whole which has put restrictions on social gatherings, Samsung can’t possibly think of organizing such event this summer.
Moreover, in New York City, lockdown rules are still in place and would continue until at least June 13, while all large gatherings are either canceled or postponed.
No wonder the company opted for an online event only, though it has not come out to confirm the change in plan, but putting Korea Herald on the know by stating that online hosting of events is Influential and that the company has various plans in mind, gives somewhat credence to the speculation.
