Samsung confirms Galaxy Unpacked event

Samsung has confirmed they will be holding their Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5.

It was recently reported that the tech giant was planning to launch the Galaxy Note 20 series and Fold 2 next-gen smartphones next month, and now Samsung has confirmed the event is taking place.

Whilst little else was revealed in the clip, a previous leak of the color of the Galaxy Note 20 matched up in their video announcement.

Samsung's Russian website had previously posted that the smartphone is a "mystic bronze" color, which turned out to be correct.

The Unpacked showcase will be online only, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A Samsung spokesperson told Korean newspaper The Dong-A Ilbo previously claimed: "Internal discussions are taking place, but the plan to hold the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5 is being reviewed favorably."

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that the tech giant filed a patent to make the Galaxy Fold 2 waterproof and introduce a "notification display".

The firm made a bold move considering the Galaxy Fold had to be delayed because of issues with its screen.

But according to a filing, their new design features an elongated notification window on the front.

The new phone in the Fold line will also address the foldable issues, and much more, which has been detailed via a 58-page document with illustrations, as per Pocket-Lint.com

Among the problems with the smartphone was the screens continually flickering and hinge bulges - which were caused by users peeling off a protective film on the screen that looked removable, but should not have been removed.

Bloomberg's sources said Samsung stretched the protective film across the entire screen and into "the outer bezels so it would be impossible to peel off by hand".

Samsung Electronics CEO DJ Koh admitted the botched Galaxy Fold roll-out was "embarrassing" and said he had "pushed it through before it was ready."
