The first half of 2020 came with complications for most companies, including Samsung. A few months back, the brand launched its latest Galaxy S20 series, which doesn’t seem to have met Samsung’s sales expectations. The reason might be the global outbreak of deadly COVID-19 virus. To turn this around, the South Korean tech giant is rumored to launch new phones later this year. Also Read - Tablet sales rose drastically in 2020, e-learning demands cited as reason

After that, the company is said to announce the Samsung latest mobile Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (aka S20 Lite) in the month of October.

In general, Samsung will have a busy schedule for the second half of 2020.
