A few days ago we have talked about the launch date of the Galaxy Note 20 and it's at August 5th, but we haven't talked about is the release date. Usually, Samsung takes about 2 to 3 weeks to release the handset to the public and that's exactly what will happen with the Galaxy Note 20 as well.
Samsung will keep a two-week gap between the time the Galaxy Note 20 devices are unveiled to when they’re available in stores. Jon Prosser claims that the handset will be launched on August 5 and will go on sale on August 20.

Event August 5th - my source
Devices will launch on August 20th
Interestingly Mark Gurman from Bloomberg says the handset will go on sale on August 21st and only the Note 20 will be released to the public whereas the Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G will be released at a later date
Unpacked date is correct, I am referring to the phones. The launch is on the 21st, not 20th, and it’s only one phone. The other two phones are later.— Mark Gurman (@markgurman) June 10, 2020
Which is totally possible because the original Galaxy Fold was launched alongside the Galaxy S10 but the went on sale months after what the S10 did.
Speaking of the Galaxy Fold 2 here is a render based on the leaked information which suggests what the device might end up looking like. According to the latest information, the Galaxy Fold 2 will not have the support for S-Pen as South Korean media reports that Samsung has decided against offering the S-Pen on the Fold 2 as it wasn’t able to make ultra-thin glass capable of being folded and withstanding pressure from the S-Pen. Samsung tried some alternative such as making the display thicker at the sides and thinner at the center where it folds but industry insiders said that it isn't viable for now and that a foldable with an S-Pen has been pushed back to 2021.
Not only that, but the display on the Fold 2 will also be LTPS and not LTPO like the Galaxy Note 20.
If you don't know, LTPO display allows for variable refresh rate from 1Hz to 120Hz whereas with LTPS it's only 60Hz or 120Hz.
Also, LTPS consumes more battery than LTPO. So these aren't great news if you are waiting for the Fold 2 but let's hope that Samsung keeps the price low to compensate for the loss of these features.
Apple has been sued multiple times in the past from a lot of companies which also includes Samsung but nothing as crazy as this lawsuit. A Missouri man filed a lawsuit against Apple for 1 trillion dollars which is the approximate net worth of Apple. The man claims that he went to the Apple Store to fix an issue with his smartphone. The store staff fixed the iPhone, but Parker claims they kept it by deceiving him knowing that it was the first phone to have new features, and instead provided a replacement iPhone. The supposed "new features" seemingly includes the ability to circumvent certain startup screen options, as well as a nifty group Facetime-esque function.
Not only that, but Parker claimed that his original phone was swapped out for an old one with factory settings that required him to reset passwords and download apps all over again. As for relief, the man wants $1 trillion from Apple. I've seen a lot of crazy things in my life but this, right here, takes the cake. I'm wondering who's that lawyer crazy enough to actually take this case? Anyway let me know what do you think down in the comments.
