Then there will be information about the foldable device Galaxy Fold 2 and the smartphone Galaxy Note20. We will talk about the processors that the Koreans intend to install in the devices of the entire line. In addition, let's talk about the features of OnePlus wireless headphones.
Samsung is about to release an alternative to the Xiaomi Mi Band
Insiders have found information in the Bluetooth SIG database about a new Samsung product - a fitness tracker, about which nothing was previously known. They claim that the device will complement the Galaxy Fit smartband lineup. It will have several features, among which the NFC module and a capacious battery stand out.
While the gadget has no name, there is only a codename - SM-R220. On the site, he was placed in the wearable devices section. According to the regulator, the device will receive a Bluetooth 5.1 module and a 150 mAh battery.
Before that, there were a number of leaks on the network about the device. It is claimed to be able to work with Android and iOS mobile devices.
This fitness tracker has already appeared in the FCC and NRRA resource databases. From there it became known about some of the characteristics of the product and its functionality. It should include the NFC module, which will receive one of the equipment options and support for continuous heart rate monitoring.
The Unpacked 2020 event will take place on August 5th. It is expected that the novelty will be shown during this forum.
OnePlus headphones will be equipped with fast charging support
In the near future, OnePlus will present the Nord smartphone and Buds wireless branded headphones. The device is expected to receive affordable pricing from the outset. Also recently it became known about another modification feature.
The author of the new leak was the top manager of the Chinese manufacturer Jay Liu, who discussed the features of the gadget with reporters. According to him, OnePlus Buds will be equipped with Warp Charge fast charging technology. It allows you to charge the device for ten hours of continuous use in just ten minutes in a special case.
If you compare these capabilities with the capabilities of Apple AirPods, then you can understand that the Chinese are more successful. The American device, after a fifteen-minute charge, can work for only five hours.
It is also known that OnePlus Buds will receive a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 430 mAh. It is not yet known whether it has wireless charging capabilities, but most likely it will not.
Prior to that, the CEO of the company said that the device will be equipped with half-in-ear technology, which will improve user comfort by reducing pressure inside the ear.
August announcement of Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 highly likely
Our resource has repeatedly published information regarding the next foldable device Samsung Galaxy Fold 2. Insiders have recently begun to claim that its announcement will be delayed or postponed due to the need to fine-tune the model, which can take months.
However, the latest news refutes this information. According to Display Supply Chain analyst Ross Young, who is involved with the products of the Korean manufacturer, the gadget will be shown on August 5 at the official Unpacked event.
It is almost certain that the Galaxy Fold 2 is equipped with a 7.59-inch LTPO display with a resolution of 2213x1689, a pixel density of 372 dpi and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It is also expected to receive a round notch in the screen for the front camera, support for fast charging with a power of 25W, two separate batteries and flexible Ultra Thin Glass coating.
So far, nothing is known about equipping the model with an S Pen stylus, but there is information about the presence of IP protection of the case against water and dust.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will be equipped with different processors
For many years, Samsung has been practicing installing two different processors in modifying its smartphones. This is especially true for flagships. Most often, devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets were sold in China and the United States, while in other countries they were shipped with Samsung Exynos chips.
However, earlier this year, the Galaxy S20 line sold in South Korea received Snapdragon 865 processors. In August, the Galaxy Note20 will start selling with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. At least this is likely.
Recently, the gap between Qualcomm and Exynos products has become more noticeable. This is especially true for the Snapdragon 865 and Exynos 990 chipsets. The American product has higher performance, it works better in fifth generation networks. That is why the choice was made in his favor.
From sources close to the Korean company, it became known that this news came as a surprise for the semiconductor division of Samsung. It is often criticized and not without reason.
Users from South Korea will definitely get lucky. After all, they can get the Note20 based on the Snapdragon 865 Plus, while in Europe they will start selling them with the Exynos 990 installed.
