While Samsung remains firmly in the hands of the Android camp, it will not only face direct competition from Apple in the high-end market, but also challenge domestic handset makers such as Huawei and Xiaomi. Especially when the Galaxy S20 Series can’t continue its past glory, Samsung is pinning more hope on the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 Series and Galaxy Fold 2 collapsible phones.
Samsung plans to hold a Galaxy Unpack event on August 5, 2020, South Korean media the Dong-A Ilbo reported. The event is likely to be broadcast live online, as it is difficult to invite domestic and overseas media to live parties because of the continuing risk of a new coronavirus pandemic.
The report quoted a Samsung Electronics employee as saying: “Internal discussions are ongoing and plans for the Galaxy Unpack event on August 5 are under active review.” Another industry source said: “As COVID-19 continues to spread and anti-racism protests in the United States are worsening, this year’s event is likely to be held online.” “
