Samsung’s eagerly awaited product launch event “Galaxy Unpacked” finally happened and we have compiled a list of takeaways from the event if you didn’t get a chance to live stream. Earlier last month, we did a piece on the expectations from Galaxy Unpacked 2020. The Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra are now genuine products along with Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3 and bean shaped Galaxy Buds too. Let us find out if Samsung could pack a punch and stay true to our expectations.
Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra have herculean specs starting at $1000 and $1300 respectively. Both these models have fiery Snapdragon 865 Plus processors along with 5G support and IP68 waterproofing rating. Additionally, there is support for wireless charging but they are different in some ways.
Samsung provided a 64MP telephoto lens in the Note 20 and the Note 20 Ultra has a 108MP wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom. It is important to note that the Note 20 Ultra has a 120Hz refresh rate OLED screen along with better RAM and microSD. The battery is spectacular for both Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, allowing it to charge 50% in under 30 mins. The Note 20 comes in three colours :Mystic Bronze, Mystic Gray and Mystic Green whereas Note 20 Ultra is available in: Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black and Mystic White.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the successor to the vertical-folding Galaxy Fold. The outer display when closed, is much bigger than the previous version. Galaxy Z Fold 2 is 6.2 inches long but when the main screen is unfolded, the device is actually 7.6 inches. Samsung stated that it improved the phone structure to make it stronger and improved the hinge. This is said to increase the durability of the smartphone. Moreover, there is a punch-hole front camera, with 12GB of RAM and 5G support. It is worth mentioning that more details about pricing and availability will be provided by Samsung on 1st September.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are the latest wireless earbuds by the company, leaked way ahead of the event. It is famously shaped like Jelly beans and is super small compared to Galaxy Buds Plus. Though it is smaller than the predecessor, it is more technologically advanced. Active noise cancellation is a key feature in premium wireless earbuds and Samsung doesn’t compromise. It is said that Samsung has gone step ahead when we thought the Galaxy Buds Plus was the best earbuds from Samsung. Everyone knows how well connected Apple’s Airpods are when you switch between multiple devices. Samsung might have cracked the perfect code for connectivity for these cute bean shaped earbuds.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 Plus
In our previous article, we mentioned that if you are a Samsung fan, you must know that there are very few companies that take Android tablets seriously but Samsung ceases to amaze us every year with new variants in the Galaxy Tab lineup year after year. On August 5, Samsung announced two sizes of the Tab S7, an 11-inch tab and a 12.4-inch one. Both Tab S7 and S7 Plus run on Android 10 with OneUI software with Snapdragon 865 Plus processors. The smaller S7 has an LCD screen whereas the S7 Plus is bestowed with an OLED screen and a 120Hz refresh rate.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is sleeker than Samsung’s previous smartwatch models. That being said, it features a stunning 1.4-inch display. The Galaxy Watch 3 will be available in two sizes: 41mm(Mystic Bronze and Mystic Silver colour) and 45mm (Mystic Silver and Mystic Black colour). The watch is equipped with fall detection and is notably lighter and thinner too. Galaxy Watch 3 is priced at $399.99 and $429.99 respectively.
