Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G to be announced at Note20 event on August 5
Another report about Samsung’s launch event has surfaced with corroborating information. An earlier report from South Korea has claims that the upcoming Galaxy Fold 2 wouldn’t come with support for the S-Pen, but would include an updated display with 120Hz refresh rate.
A tweet from leakster Jon Prosser reports that along with the Galaxy Note 20 series and the Galaxy Fold 2, there will also be an updated Galaxy Z Flip 5G announced at the August 5 event. Prosser has previously reported about several leaks around Samsung and Apple launches with accuracy.

Devices will launch on August 20th
The current Galaxy Z Flip runs the Snapdragon 855 chipset and only has LTE support. It remains to be seen whether Samsung would update the chipset or simply make room for a 5G modem + antennas and use the same chip. Previous reports suggest that the 5G variant will also come in a 256GB base storage version and a new brown color might be introduced.
The Samsung Galaxy Note20 will come with a flat display, with much of the same features of the Galaxy S20 series. There will also be a Note20+ that’s expected to arrive with a curved display but given the absence of curves on the S20 Ultra, Samsung might be officially done with them. The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to arrive at this event as well.
As per the tweet, the launch event should take place on Wednesday, August 5 and pre-orders will begin fulfillment on August 20. There's word of a Galaxy Watch 3 and a new pair of Gear earbuds, but these will possibly come before that event.
That a whole lot of devices in a single unpacked event.
