During August 2020’s Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung announced five new devices in its Galaxy range. If you weren’t lucky enough to watch the presentation when it was live, here’s a summary of the event, with everything you need to know about the five devices.
1. Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra
Samsung opened the Galaxy Unpacked event with the Galaxy Note 20. It comes in two versions: the regular Note 20, and the Note 20 Ultra. The Note 20 boasts a 6.7-inch screen, while the 20 Ultra boasts a 6.9-inch display.
Both phones sport an “intelligent battery” and can charge up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. They also have one selfie camera on the front, plus three cameras on the back: an ultra-wide, wide-angle, and a telephoto camera.
The Galaxy Note 20 will cost $999, while the Note 20 Ultra will cost $1,299. Pre-orders start on August 6 and the phone launches on August 21.
2. Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ Tablet
The new Galaxy Tab also comes in two different versions: the S7 and S7+. The S7 has an 11-inch screen, while the S7+ features a 12.4-inch display.
The tablet comes with a keyboard that snaps on quickly. The keyboard itself features a trackpad with multiple finger gesture support. On the tablet, you can run three apps at the same time by dividing the screen up into three windows for better multitasking.
The Tab S7 will start at $649, and the S7+ at $849. They will be released on August 21.
3. Galaxy Buds Live
The Galaxy Buds Live are wireless in-ear headphones. They sport a 6-hour battery life with continuous use, and the included charge case’s battery lasts for 21 hours.
The Buds Live use active noise cancellation that blocks out unwanted noise while preserving what you want to hear. The earbuds come with three microphones for phone calls, which actively reduces background noise for better call quality.
The Galaxy Buds Live will set you back $170 and will be available on August 6.
4. Galaxy Watch 3
Next, we have Samsung’s latest entry into digital wearables, the Galaxy Watch 3. It comes in two sizes: a 41-millimeter and a 45-millimeter model.
