Samsung has historically announced new Galaxy Note flagship smartphones at a Galaxy Unpacked event in early August, and with Ice Universe’s claim, it appears that the company remains on track despite the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The event is also expected to be an online-only affair, similar to how Apple staged this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

The leaker also took a stab at predicting the price tag of the Galaxy Note 20 and its larger version, which will reportedly be named the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

Predict the price of the Galaxy Note20 series:
Note20, $999
Note20 Ultra, $1299

Samsung recently accidentally released a render of the Galaxy Note 20 on its Ukrainian official website, providing the best look at the smartphone yet in its Mystic Bronze color option. The image, which has since been removed, reveals three camera sensors at the back of the device housed in a large camera bump, alongside an S Pen stylus.

Next Samsung Unpacked event

At the upcoming event, Samsung is also expected to unveil the Galaxy Fold 2, which is rumored to cost and weigh a bit less than its predecessor. A  cheaper version of the folding smartphone, the Galaxy Fold Lite with a $900 price tag, was said to be initially planned to appear at the event, but was postponed to 2021.

Samsung will also reportedly announce the Galaxy Watch 3 at the event. Leaked images revealed that the Galaxy Watch 3 will look mostly the same as the Galaxy S2, and will hopefully bring back the rotating bezel.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 may fix my biggest issue with the Z Fold 5

I ordered my first folding smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, in February of this year. I was excited, but I was also more than a little apprehensive. This was an entirely new form factor for me, as I'd never used a folding smartphone before. I'd used phones, I'd used tablets, but I'd never used both of them at the same time.

At the start of my experience, I was worried principally about how much I'd use the phone's headline feature: the big inner display. After all, if I didn't end up using it, didn't that defeat the whole point of the device?
