The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S20 is in a few weeks and we are excited about everything that could be revealed at this year's Unpacked event. The technology giant often takes the opportunity to debut more than just phones, and some highly anticipated devices could see the light of day.
An example: When the Samsung Galaxy S10 was launched in February 2019, the phone manufacturer introduced the AirPods – like Samsung Galaxy Buds. After Apple releases its AirPods Pro, we expect Samsung to fire back with the debut of the much-rumored Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus.
We're also excited to see if we can see the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G, a version of the company's pro-tablet that could connect to next-generation networks ̵
Speaking of head start, we are also waiting for news for the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 like the rumor that Samsung S Flip foldable.
At the less likely end of the spectrum are coveted but not rumored products such as the Samsung Galaxy Watch 2 that we haven't heard much about in the past few years since its beloved predecessor. And of course we could see a Bixby speaker.
If we can practically guarantee one thing, the Samsung Galaxy S20 will not come on the market alone. Here's what we're looking forward to at the event.
Samsung Galaxy S20 / S20 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy S20 together with the probably larger Samsung The Galaxy S20 Plus will be the focus of Unpacked. We're expecting a few innovations from the new flagships, but there's still a lot we don't know about these phones. First of all, will they all be 5G capable?
One of these phones will almost certainly include the Snapdragon 865 chipset, which requires a 5G-capable modem like the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 to be able to connect to next-generation networks immediately. It's still possible that Samsung will release cheaper 4G versions alongside 5G versions, but it seems like this is more trouble than worth it.
Most of what we heard about the phones included incremental improvements: thinner bezels, centerline selfie camera, larger 6.2-inch (S20) and 6.7-inch (S20 Plus) screens – but some, like a 64-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x zoom and maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz, impressed us. However, Samsung seems to be saving the biggest improvements for the biggest, baddest model …
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
This is more so. The largest and best-selling version of the S20 series is said to be the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. You could call it the S20 Ultra 5G, which makes it even more obvious than the massive Samsung Galaxy S10 5G that came on the market in mid-2019. This time, we expect the top-top phone to arrive at the same time as its smaller siblings.
Rumor has it that the Ultra contains a maximum 6.9-inch display and greatly enlarged cameras: a 108MP main shooter, a 48MP telephoto lens with 5x zoom and a 40MP front camera. (Rumor has it that all S20 phones have the same 12-megapixel ultrawide lens, while S20 Plus and S20 Ultra have time-of-flight sensors.) The S20 Ultra is quite simply the most technically advanced mobile phone with a rumored 100x digital zoom, packed as "Space Zoom".
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite / Note 10 Lite Price and release date
Strangely not in The S20 lineup is a further development of the S10e flagship. It's quite possible that Samsung will follow Apple to make its first-class mobile phone (the standard Galaxy S20) the cheapest option. Or Samsung could integrate its recently announced Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite into the budget flagship role.
We saw and played these phones at CES 2020, but we could finally learn when they & # 39; I will be sold and how much they will cost. Although their specs are a year behind the new S20 line, they should be affordable in terms of affordability and likely to cost less than the S10e at launch – making both handsets strong competitors for the best mid- Ranger is doing out there.
Of course, there is another option: Both the S10 Lite and the Note 10 Lite have been specifically designed to target other markets than those that include Samsung's most expensive flagship. If this is the case, we may not hear anything about the S10 Lite and the Note 10 Lite.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus Rumor has it that Samsung is the answer to Apple's AirPods Pro – noise-canceling premium real radio Earbuds, but in this case for Android phones. At least that's what we expect – but rumors have both supported and refuted the ability to suppress noise.
Even without the outstanding functionality of the AirPods Pro, the Galaxy Buds Plus could outperform the Pro in terms of battery life – a rumor says that it could last up to 12 hours.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 2
The original Samsung Galaxy Watch was a powerhouse with a neatly rotating bezel that made navigating the smartwatch easier – and a more entertaining, tactile experience. While the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 introduced a digital haptic version of this feature, it's not the same and we're excited about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 2. We haven't heard much about the Galaxy Watch 2, which indicates that we can do this Smartwatch at Unpacked 2020 is unlikely to be seen. But we can still dream.
New fitness tracker?  It is quite possible that we may get a successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fit or maybe even another inexpensive fitness tracker like the Samsung Galaxy Fit e . We haven't heard any news or rumors, so there's no real hype about a new Samsung device. But if we don't get another smartwatch this year, it might make sense for the company to whet the appetite with an updated fitness tracker.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G
The Samsung The Galaxy Tab S6 was a welcome surprise: a tablet with higher speed than the iPad Pro, but with a few extras that contrast to take off. The Tab S6 includes an S-stylus (which is lower than that of the iPad Pro), an improved Dex mode for desktop simulation, and a touchpad for keyboard accessories (sold separately). It's a fascinating competitor that only gets more exciting with 5G.
A Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G coming to Unpacked 2020 would beat Apple as there is no 5G-capable iPad yet. This is also useful for on-the-go professionals who need to upload and download files quickly, e.g. B. for media editors.
Of course, 5G networks are still in their infancy – and a Tab S6 5G must be encrypted for each provider's 5G network. We'll see how Samsung deals with it when it releases a 5G tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Ah, the enigmatic Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It is unclear whether this is simply a code name for the Galaxy Fold 2 or a standalone forked device that is rumored to be that it is a foldable device that hangs on its horizontal access the Motorola Razr .
We also heard that it could have two hinges – so it can be folded into a Z-shape, hence the name – but that's uncertain and sounds difficult for a company to do just a year after it's first foldable try A delay has been reported due to issues with screen durability.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 2
We also heard that the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is foldable in its predecessor's footsteps as a "hot dog style" – but bigger and better. In particular, leaks have told us that the battery could be bigger, faster charging speeds, better cameras, and other incremental improvements.
While Unpacked 2020 appears to be released shortly after Fold's late start in 2019, leaving the luggage behind and restarting with a (much more tested) successor could be a crucial point.
