During its first-ever virtual Galaxy Unpacked event, Korean tech giant Samsung announced seven new products that are expected to hit store shelves soon – the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Note20, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G, Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 5G, Samsung Galaxy Watch3, and Samsung Galaxy Buds Live.
The Note20 and Note20 Ultra’s camera capabilities are largely derived from what is seen with the flagship S20 series, save for the additional S Pen features unique to the Note line. While its price tag is still way up there, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 adds some major upgrades from its predecessor in terms of the display panel and camera.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 brings back the mechanical and manual rotating bezel feature, while Samsung brings its first ANC-capable earphones with the Galaxy Buds Live.
“Never before have we relied on technology like we are today. That’s why we have introduced five new power devices. These devices are powerful tools to help you maximize work and play. Together, as part of the Galaxy ecosystem, they work together seamlessly so you can spend your time focused on what matters most,” said Tae Moon Roh, president and head of mobile communications business at Samsung Electronics.
