Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2 release date to remain unaffected despite global slowdown
The ongoing COVID 19 epidemic has resulted in a lot of suspended product launches. Even the upcoming iPhone 12 series' release date might get pushed back from its usual September date to October. Samsung's Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2, on the other hand, will be released according to schedule.
According to a report by the Korea Herald, Samsung has already begun making preparations for its Galaxy Note 20 launch event. Although there isn't a confirmed release date yet, it'll likely happen sometime in August. Much like a lot of product launches this year, this too will probably be live-streamed online. One rumor even states that Samsung could release the devices even earlier in the last week of July.
However, an early release doesn't necessarily guarantee availability. A lot of people will want to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, and it will be difficult for Samsung to keep up with the demand in the face of global production slowdowns. It took the Galaxy S20 series nearly a month to hit the shelves after its release, and we could be looking at even longer waiting periods for the Galaxy Note 20.
