This could be our first real-world look at the massive Samsung Galaxy Note 20

The Galaxy Note 20 likely won’t be out for at least another month or so, but a leaked image could provide our first real look at the upcoming device. The leak comes from YouTuber Jimmy is Promo, and it shows a device with a beautifully large edge-to-edge display and a stunning glossy black finish.

Samsung usually launches new Galaxy Note models in August, and a Samsung event is rumored for August 5.

The leaked images themselves show off the volume rocker and power button on the right side of the device, in a similar placement to the new Galaxy S20. Apart from the camera array and some other changes, the tweaks to the overall design seem minor.

Perhaps the biggest change is the new rectangular camera bump, which matches the one on the new Galaxy S20. The camera bump houses a total of four camera sensors, including what appears to be a folded zoom lens. One of the sensors is also likely a time-of-flight sensor.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 20 is likely to be one of the best phones of the year. You’ll get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, along with at least 8GB of RAM, though possibly more, and at least 256GB of storage. The device will also reportedly offer a 6.7-inch display, with a possible Plus-sized model coming in with a 6.9-inch display. Speaking of the display, Samsung is also expected to start moving away from the curved glass trend, and as a result it’s likely that the Galaxy Note 20 may offer only slightly curved edges.

Color options for the Galaxy Note 20 may have leaked too. Notably, the device may come in gray, copper, and green, while the larger Galaxy Note 20 may come in black, copper, and gold. If leaks about the colors turn out to be true, it’s possible the leaked images from Jimmy is Promo depict the larger Galaxy Note 20 Plus.

While the new devices may be announced on August 5, it likely won’t be until later in the month that they’re actually available to purchase, barring any delays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


Google Pixel 4a pre-orders go live with August 20 availability

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more. Additionally, US carriers will offer the phone, including Google Fi, US Cellular, and Verizon.Customers who purchase the Pixel 4a receive three month free trials of YouTube Premium, Google Play Pass and Google One.Interestingly enough, the Google Pixel 4a appears to be offered in black only through Google’s online store. Other colors expected in the lead-up to announcement included white and blue. Perhaps various carriers and retailers will have different options.

Google begins dropping details on Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5

Today might be the official arrival of the Google Pixel 4a, but that doesn’t mean Google isn’t already looking to the horizon. Indeed, Google is ready to share details about the next few models in the pipeline.According to Google, the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5 will arrive “this fall” and both will feature 5G connectivity. Moreover, Google is already sharing its expected price for the former, putting it at just $499.Whether the true difference between the standard 4a and the 5G-ready version is 5G support remains unclear.Google often debuts its flagship Pixel phones in October, and that would definitely fit in thethis fall” timeline. However, with the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that the Pixel 4a arrived nearly three months later than expected, it’s hard to say for sure.As Google tells us both the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.If you’re interested in learning more about either of these phones, you can sign up to receive updates.
