Watch: Galaxy Z Fold 2, Note 20 launch today at Samsung Unpacked


For its annual August Unpacked event, Samsung has promised us at least five new devices and comes with the Galaxy Z Fold 2, a few Galaxy Note 20 models, Galaxy Buds Live, Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 Plus, Galaxy Watch 3 and more. Following similar events by companies like Apple, which moved events online due to the coronavirus pandemic, Samsung is broadcasting the event live from South Korea.

The business faces the same issues as many phone companies: Selling the high-end Note 20 and Z Fold 2 in the event of a pandemic.

Samsung claims the best camera it has installed in a phone so far, claims the new S Pen is more accurate (with 9ms latency), 240Hz display on the Ultra for less latency in screen updates for games, as well as a partnership for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that includes Xbox game streaming (née xCloud).

This is a developing story. The original message follows

Samsung will host its Unpacked event today, in which Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Fold 2 should be announced. The timing of the August livestream is curious, because Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip 5G only a few weeks ago. (The Flip 5G is an update to the Galaxy Z Flip, which launched earlier this year.) Samsung’s Unpacked event takes place almost at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT. It follows similar events by companies like Apple, who moved events online due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Samsung will broadcast the event live from South Korea.

But you can join CNET before, during, and after the event on its livestream hosted by Editors Iyaz Akhtar and Bridget Carey, as well as Editor Jeff Bakalar. Senior reporter Shara Tibken will make a special appearance ahead of the event.

In a message posted to Samsung’s online newsroom, Samsung’s head of mobile business Tae-moon Roh said the company will showcase five new devices at the event. Leaks and Rumors of two Galaxy Note 20 devices and the Galaxy Z Fold 2, which would follow on from last year Galaxy Fold.

Members of the media received an invitation to the Unpacked event with a photo of a copper-colored liquid splash. This could be a clue as to the color of some, if not all of the new devices that will be announced. The video above shows the tip of an S-Pen stylus that comes with Galaxy Note devices. A circular drop of copper-colored liquid flows from its end.

Samsung will host a live broadcast of the event on its website.
