We’re in the second month of 2020 and Samsung has already held its first Galaxy Unpacked event for the year. That means we’ve got a new range of devices announced from the tech company for consumers around the world. From a new range of flagships to a completely new form factor for the company, here’s everything that was announced at Galaxy Unpacked last night.

Galaxy S20 Series

Samsung has launched an upgrade to its popular flagship range of Galaxy S phones at the Galaxy Unpacked with the S20 series. There are three phones this time with the S20, S20+ and the S20 Ultra. While the S20 and S20+ are the usual upgrades, the S20 Ultra is a massive jump on many factors – the first being the mammoth display that steps into the territory of the Note range at 6.9”.

The display size on the S20 is 6.2″, with the S20+ at 6.7″. All three displays can do 120Hz at 1080p and go all the way up to QHD+. The biggest focus on the entire range is the cameras, with the S20 packing a triple camera setup with 64-MP telephoto sensors.

The S20+ and Ultra both come with four sensors, with the Ultra going all the way up to 108MP on the wide-angle lens. This allows the S20 and S20+ to zoom up to 30x, while the Ultra can do a 100x zoom. Another new feature is 8K video recording on all three phones. To prove their claims of its camera prowess, Samsung revealed that the event was being live-streamed using S20 smartphones.

Galaxy Z Flip

After their first tryst with the foldable phone design last year, Samsung has launched a clamshell-type flip phone at the Galaxy Unpacked. Named the Galaxy Z Flip, the phone has a lot of exciting features to offer. Unfolded, the devices comes at an ample 6.7”. While folded, a small exterior display offers basic functionality from the notification bar, as well as a preview for quick selfies. A third, half-way folded mode is being called the “Flex mode” by Samsung. There's also a designer edition with Thom Browne.

Galaxy Buds+

With the Apple Airpods getting an upgrade last year, we knew that Samsung couldn’t be far behind. The Galaxy Buds+ upgrades to two drivers from one, and three microphones from two.

The battery life also gets a significant boost with 11-hour battery life. Compatible Galaxy phones will also be able to charge the case through “Powershare”.

Availability & Pricing

There's no clear information about India launch or pricing yet. However, globally, the S20 range has well and truly gone premium by starting from $999 and going all the way up to $1599 with the Ultra. The Z-Flip is priced at $1380 internationally.
