We are having a summer quite full of ads despite being a rather peculiar year, and as the warmer months go by, the environment smells stronger and stronger of Samsung news. In fact, with such a lot of rumors and leaks we can already gather everything we think we know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Watch 3.

These are the expected protagonists of the next Samsung event, although the company has confirmed that we will see five devices. Quote? Confirmed, since the August 5 there will be Unpacked (of course, virtual) and they will reveal all the news.

The S20 module and the arrival of pink bronze to the back of the Galaxy Note

Aesthetics is one of the aspects that plays the most in the field of leaks, with people dedicated even to recreating what the devices could be from tracks or sometimes with supposedly leaked photographs or renders. Speaking of this, according to what has been seen the new Note 20 would be a hybrid between what we saw last year in the Note 10 and what we saw this with the Galaxy S20, also talking about three Galaxy Note 20: the standard, the Note 20+ and the Note 20 Ultra.

To (not) vary, OnLeaks has provided a good number of leaks also of the Galaxy Note 20. Specifically, a few months ago we saw some CAD designs that showed the alleged Note 20 and Note 20+ designs.

Dimensions have even been noted. Speaking of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, it is expected to measure 161.8 x 75.3 x 8.5 millimeters, which would leave it with a somewhat larger volume than both Galaxy Note 10 being above all higher. Enough to fit a 6.7-inch screen, the same as we saw on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite, in fact we don’t see any curvature in the panel in these renders, either.

For the Galaxy Note 20+ it is aimed at a 6.9-inch screen, which by a tenth of an inch would break a record in the Note. It points to measures of 165 x 77.2 x 7.6 millimeters, which would be even thinner than Note 20 (maybe because of the curvature) and a little more compact than the Note 10+.

What we see that changes in all, according to these images, is that the camera module becomes more rectangular, leaving aside the design that was presented in the previous Note 10 (except the Lite) and taking shapes that are more reminiscent of the S20.

The location of the side buttons also appears to have changed, passing to the right side, as well as the S Pen, as if the distribution between these elements had been inverted. And what also reached the clusters of the leaks is a pinkish bronze color for at least the Note 20, which in fact seems to match that of the splatter that illustrates the official Unpacked image.

Speculating on a change in display technology

Speaking of screens, what has also been pointed out is the arrival of the LTPO screens (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide), which could stand out especially for being able to take advantage of high refresh rates without causing energy consumption to skyrocket. Rates like the 120 Hz expected for these mobiles, inheriting this feature from the S20.

Although yes, according to that information (which came from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Consultants), Samsung itself had “confirmed” that the Galaxy Note 20+ will support 120 Hz on its screen, but the base model of this terminal, the Galaxy Note 20, will maintain an LPTS (Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) screen at 60 Hz. That is, it would not be exactly like the S20 because in that case the base model (the Samsung Galaxy S20) does refresh down to 120 Hz.

This refresh rate would be adaptive at least on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, according to the latest Ice Universe leaked. For this mobile, a curved panel is expected, specifically a 6.87-inch AMOLED screen with QHD + resolution according to the four alleged photos that were leaked. And all would go with the front camera inserted into the panel, as in the previous Galaxy S and Note.

Processor to the last or even premiere

Samsung Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Watch 3, headphones and everything we think we know about what we will see in the Unpacked of August 5

In April there was talk of the arrival of a new processor Exynos 992, the first of 6 nanometers. But later it was said that at least the Note 20 Ultra would incorporate the recently presented Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+, although it would not be unusual to see two versions according to markets.

For the top of the Note 20, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, has targeted 12 GB of RAM and a 4,500 mAh battery. According to the latest leaks from Roland Quandt, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will feature the Exynos 990 processor, a 6.9-inch panel at 120 Hz and WQHD, Gorilla Glass 7 and triple rear camera up to 108 megapixels. The mobile would be capable of recording in 8K resolution and the S-Pen would offer a latency of only 9 milliseconds, so it would be suitable for gaming.

Talking about the Photography, What is expected as filtered by Ice Universe is that there is a triple rear camera for both the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 base and the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+. For the second one points to the following combination:

  • 108 megapixel main sensor ISOCELL Bright HM1. 1 / 1.33 inch size.
  • Telephoto camera with periscope objective. 13 megapixels for image size, 1 / 3.4 inch dimensions and Samsung ISOCELL Slim 3M5 sensor.
  • 13 megapixel ultra wide angle camera, 1 / 2.55 inch Samsung ISOCELL Fast 2L3 sensor.

In addition to the three cameras, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ would have laser focus, would come without a ToF sensor and would have a maximum zoom of 50x (hybrid).

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3

What would be the heir to the Samsung Galaxy Watch has almost leaked to his ID. With all the comments we were able to put together what would be the technical file of two sizes (41 and 45 millimeters), with a classic design, rotating bezel and OLED screen (1.2 or 1.4 inches) with Gorilla Glass DX.

We saw that it would also have the certifications of resistance IP68 and MIL-STD-810G and that it will come with the function of performing factory electrocardiograms. In principle it would also improve the interiors with more memory and greater battery than its predecessors.

A new folding

The least talked about (but talked about) is what would be the direct successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the company’s first folding device. They pointed out in Bloomberg that this would be the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold that would keep the form factor of the first fold (and not the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip) but with an external screen much larger than the one we saw in the first Fold (and that did not quite fit us, by the way).

This new folding device would integrate a 7.7-inch, 120 Hz, QXGA + resolution Infinity Flex main screen that would fold and that would integrate the front camera under the screen (instead of the conspicuous notch on the first Fold). A technology that we saw in OPPO and Xiaomi and that apparently Samsung would also have been developing since at least last year.

Unlike the Z Flip, it would carry the Snapdragon 865. It would keep the rear camera configuration of the S20 + and have a 10 megapixel sensor for each of the front cameras (like the S20 and S20 +). It remains to finally be a reality, because they talked about a launch in July that has not happened so far.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live TWS

After a video that Samsung has recently published and a leak from another regular, Evan Blass, we almost take it for granted that in this Unpacked the company’s new completely wireless headphones will also be official. Also with that color that seems the representative of this batch of devices, according to what is filtered is that they would be in three colors and that they would have a design in the shape of a bean.

According to this information, the Galaxy Buds Live TWS would follow in the wake of the many other models of this type of headphones that have reached the market in recent years: a pair of small, independent headphones with a transport box that time serves as a charging system for them.

They are expected to be approximately 2.8 centimeters long and active noise cancellation. Also that they incorporate compatibility with Bluetooth 5.1 and perhaps some software that helps improve the experience in video games.

There is less left for the appointment

As we said at the beginning, Samsung publicly announced that the Unpacked will be held next August 5. From Engadget we will cover everything live to tell you everything in detail as it is announced, so in about two weeks we will wait for you to see if all this is confirmed.
