Galaxy S20 SeriesSamsung 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 FlipAfter 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 & PricingThe Samsung Galaxy S20 Series will hit the shelves from March 6th globally. The Z-Flip starts shipping from February 14th, and so do the Buds+. 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.
