It’s been nearly a year since the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series entered the market, meaning that the launch of its successor, the Galaxy Note 20, isn’t too far over the horizon. In fact, some believe that that launch will be happening in August this year.
According to the trappings of serial leakster, Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser), Samsung is planning on hosting an Unpacked event for the Galaxy Note 20 on 5 August, while availability of the phone will supposedly be set for 20 August. Note that we did not say local availability; given Samsung’s trend of hosting a global announcement of its phones, the actual availability is always different between regions.

In addition to the potential launch date, a tweet from yet another popular leakster, Ice universe (@UniverseIce), suggests that the Note 20 will be Samsung’s first flagship device in years to feature a flat display. Instead of the curved display currently in use with the Galaxy Note10 series and, to a certain extent, the current Galaxy S20 series.
There’s also another rumour that suggests Samsung could be getting rid of the 100x zoom feature of the Galaxy S20 Ultra; a feature that many in the tech world have described as overkill for an underwhelming main camera.

In any case, these are still merely hearsay and gossip, so take them with a large grain of salt. At least until the alleged 5 August Unpacked event.
