Here’s Everything Samsung Announced During Its Unpacked Event

Phones, tablets, and much more

Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2020 took place earlier, and it was a doozy. Between new smartphones, new tablets, a new set of true wireless earbuds, and a new smartwatch, Samsung had plenty to announce today.

Let’s take a look at everything unveiled during today’s Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2

Despite the name, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the sequel to the Galaxy Fold introduced in early 2019, delayed due to manufacturing issues, and re-introduced in late 2019.

As with its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will sport an outer display and an inner display. The outer display grows to 6.2 inches, while the inner display is set at 7.6 inches on the diagonal.

Unlike with the Galaxy Fold’s outer display, the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s outer display features slim bezels around it. The same goes for the inner display, which used to have an unsightly notch for the inner cameras. As a bonus, the inner display will have a 120Hz refresh rate.

Other details include a 4,500mAh battery, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB-C port on the bottom, and the lack of a headphone jack.

Samsung didn’t share additional Galaxy Z Fold 2 specs, nor did it share exact pricing. However, pre-orders will open September 1. If you’re interested, you can go here to reserve your spot.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

We now arrive at the two heavily-rumored stars of the show: the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

Generally-speaking, the phones are similar to each other. They both feature the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, at least 8GB of RAM, large batteries, and three cameras.

That said, the Galaxy Note 20 sports a plastic back, while the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra opts for glass. Also, the S Pen’s latency on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra goes down to 9ms, while the latency on the Galaxy Note 20 goes down to 26ms.

Pre-orders for both phones kick off tomorrow, August 6 in the United States, with a wide rollout expected for August 21. The Galaxy Note 20 will cost $999.99, while the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will sell for $1,299.99.

Taking aim squarely at Apple’s iPad Pro line-up, Samsung announced two new tablets: the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 Plus.

As with its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 Plus support the S Pen stylus. Latency has been reduced on both tablets to 9ms, thanks to their displays’ 120Hz refresh rates. That means any hint of lag should be imperceptible to your eyes.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

The Galaxy Buds Live are the latest entry to Samsung’s line of true wireless earbuds.

Aesthetically, they look similar to beans that haven’t worked out in a while. However, the design supposedly serves a practical purpose: they should fit better in your ears relative to Samsung’s previous true wireless earbuds. The company even promises you can wear these all day.

Other features include three microphones, a 12mm speaker and bass duct for enhanced audio listening, active noise cancellation (ANC), touch control, and six hours of playback. The included case adds up to 15 extra hours.

The Galaxy Buds Live will be available tomorrow in three colors for $169.99.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3

Last up is the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, the company’s latest smartwatch.

The smartwatch brings back the rotating bezel from previous entries, with the bezel’s rounded sides a bit smoother than before. Also back is the stainless steel build, though the Galaxy Watch 3 will also be available in a titanium build.

More important are three upcoming features: blood oxygen (SpO2) readings, blood pressure monitoring, and electrocardiogram (ECG) readings. These features will not be available at launch, though the readings will be FDA-cleared.

The Galaxy Watch 3 will come in two sizes: 41mm and 45mm diameters. The 41mm version will have a 1.2-inch display, while the 45mm version will go with a larger 1.4-inch display.

The Galaxy Watch 3 will be available starting tomorrow and start at $399.99 for the Wi-Fi-only model.
