Around 3,000 industry officials and tech aficionados including some famous Twitterians gathered at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on Tuesday for the unveiling of the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy S20 lineup, despite persisting fears over the novel coronavirus outbreak. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra packs a 108MP wide-angle camera, a 48MP telephoto camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and a ToF sensor.
The blue and red colorways will most likely be announced later.
The Galaxy Z Flip isn't Samsung Electronics Co.'s first foldable device, but it's the first to carry the Z designation, which the company is dedicating exclusively to foldables. When set at an angle, the lower half of the display serves as a split-screen for supported apps-you can view a YouTube video on the top half while reading comments on the lower half, for instance. The S20 Ultra is sure to be a leading phone in 2020 due to its 6.9-inch OLED display, phenomenal processing speed, 5,000mAh battery life, and water resistance.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. "Combining Space Zoom, Singe Take, Bright Night and much more, the Galaxy S20 will be the most compelling smartphone on the market". In the case of the cheapest Galaxy S20, you're looking at something between AU$56/month and AU$37/month plus the cost of the plan itself - which can vary based on the amount of data and extras you bundle in with it.
Samsung released some great info graphics on the new Galaxy S20 smartphones that I thought I would share below.
More in-depth testing and performance numbers will emerge as the review embargo gets lifted in the coming weeks, but one thing is clear from the S20 reveal: this year's Apple flagships are up against stiff competition in the premium smartphone category.
