A new leak has suggested that a trio of Samsung phones will arrive in the coming months, starting with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 in August, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 in September.
Sadly, the leak, in the form of a report from the Korean site ETNews, did not provide exact dates, it only launched windows. But after the Note 20 series of phones in August and Fold 2 in September, the tech giant is following up with a release of the alleged Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition in October.
The S20 Fan Edition is expected to be a more affordable version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphone that launched earlier this year. In that sense, it will supposedly be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, although if it arrives in October, the S20 Fan Edition would follow its predecessor on the market much faster.
Samsung launch pad: meeting our expectations … except for the S20 Fan Edition
While it wouldn’t surprise us too much if this new report is correct about the Note 20, most Note phones were released in August, launching before the Fold 2 fit the timeline set by a recent rumor that the stylus-packed phone will arrive in mid-August before the next big flip phone from the smartphone maker.
We say ‘big’ because a smaller foldable phone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, is expected to get a 5G version released this year; in fact it could out in China after TENAA, the Chinese certification authority, discovered a list. This leak from ETNews suggests that Samsung may be preparing to mass-produce the model.
Why all these additional phones? It’s no secret that the pandemic has affected phone sales, so bringing more devices to market could help offset that, especially a more affordable model such as the S20 Fan Edition is expected.
