This could be our first real-world look at the massive Samsung Galaxy Note 20

The Galaxy Note 20 likely won’t be out for at least another month or so, but a leaked image could provide our first real look at the upcoming device. The leak comes from YouTuber Jimmy is Promo, and it shows a device with a beautifully large edge-to-edge display and a stunning glossy black finish.

Samsung usually launches new Galaxy Note models in August, and a Samsung event is rumored for August 5.

The leaked images themselves show off the volume rocker and power button on the right side of the device, in a similar placement to the new Galaxy S20. Apart from the camera array and some other changes, the tweaks to the overall design seem minor.

Perhaps the biggest change is the new rectangular camera bump, which matches the one on the new Galaxy S20. The camera bump houses a total of four camera sensors, including what appears to be a folded zoom lens. One of the sensors is also likely a time-of-flight sensor.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 20 is likely to be one of the best phones of the year. You’ll get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, along with at least 8GB of RAM, though possibly more, and at least 256GB of storage. The device will also reportedly offer a 6.7-inch display, with a possible Plus-sized model coming in with a 6.9-inch display. Speaking of the display, Samsung is also expected to start moving away from the curved glass trend, and as a result it’s likely that the Galaxy Note 20 may offer only slightly curved edges.

Color options for the Galaxy Note 20 may have leaked too. Notably, the device may come in gray, copper, and green, while the larger Galaxy Note 20 may come in black, copper, and gold. If leaks about the colors turn out to be true, it’s possible the leaked images from Jimmy is Promo depict the larger Galaxy Note 20 Plus.

While the new devices may be announced on August 5, it likely won’t be until later in the month that they’re actually available to purchase, barring any delays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

3 reasons I’m disappointed by the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 with its main display open.

During its Galaxy Unpacked July 2023 event, Samsung dropped a bunch of new products for everyone — from next-generation foldable phones to new wearables and a diverse range of tablets. One of the new device reveals was the Galaxy Z Flip 5, which has been expected along with the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

Though I’m still fairly new to the scene of foldables, I have seen the appeal — and in some cases, I prefer the form factor over the standard glass slab that most phones are nowadays. But honestly, there isn’t a lot with the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 that’s drawing me in. Instead, it’s a bit underwhelming.

The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic proves Samsung made a huge mistake in 2022
Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic, in black and silver.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro was an oddball product when it launched, and now that the excellent Galaxy Watch 6 Classic is here, it only emphasizes what a huge misstep the Watch 5 Pro actually was.

Yet rather than letting it fade into the past, Samsung is keeping the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro around in the range. Why? I’ve got absolutely no idea.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 price: here’s exactly how much it costs

Samsung just held its latest Galaxy Unpacked event in Seoul, South Korea, and it had a whole slew of new products to unveil to the masses. We have three new Galaxy Tab S9 tablets, the Galaxy Watch 6 series, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, and the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is sure to impress with an all-new 3.4-inch cover display that Samsung has called the "Flex Window." You can access some new widgets from the Flex Window, including a multi-widget view for more at once, and even run apps on the cover display (with some caveats). The Z Flip 5 also has a new Flex Hinge that looks aesthetically pleasing and provides a solid foldable experience. The cameras are also slightly better, with a new lens coating that should cut down on unwanted lens flares.
