With covid-19 having thrown a wrench practically every company’s product launch timeline, it’s impossible to predict when new gadgets might get announced. But according to multiple reports, Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Fold 2 in early August.

The latest rumours around Samsung’s upcoming phones come from Korean news site Dong-A Ilbo and noted leaker Ice Universe on Weibo, who both claim Samsung will hold a virtual event on August 6. Ice Universe predicts Samsung will announce a ton of new devices, including the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy Fold 2, a 5G version of the xleaks7 and Pigtou, not a ton appears to have changed about the Note 20’s physical design.

The Galaxy Fold 2 will be the follow-up to last year’s Galaxy Fold, and could show how far Samsung’s flexible display technology has come since the company released its first foldable in late 2019. Then there are the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Watch 2, which should serve as timely updates to Samsung’s previous flagship tablet and smartwatch ” the original Galaxy Watch will be almost 2 years old in August, so we’re curious to see what changes Samsung has in store for its wearables lineup.

If it happens, Samsung’s August event could represent an almost complete overhaul of the electronics giant’s mobile portfolio ” even if some rumoured devices don’t make it on stage, we expect it to be a critical event for Samsung.
