Wood said Samsung's innovations concerning the handling of extended zoom, such as the new window-in-window viewfinder with over 30x magnification, were worthwhile additions. The Galaxy Z Flip Z is its second foldable smartphone, following the launch of the Galaxy Fold a year ago. The S20 and S20+ have a 64MP camera, while the S20 Ultra has a 108MP camera. You can check notifications, the time, and even shoot selfies with that tiny screen.

Gamers should be pleased with the 120Hz display that truly takes gaming to the next level. The emphasis on longer-lasting batteries with faster charging capabilities is going to be a big draw for users and is something we're excited about.

Samsung said the entire S20 series - the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra - will support 5G in the USA and other select markets. As far as pricing is concerned, Galaxy S20 5G will start from $999, the Galaxy S20 5G from $1,599 and the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G from $1,399.

And its recent Unpacked event (not cancelled over coronavirus fears) the mobile giant revealed its new folding Samsung Galaxy Z Flip phone.

That amount gets you a phone that has a 6.7-inch flexible hole-punch display covered with Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG). And with 87% of organizations planning to buy 5G-enabled devices, according to the IDC, this built-in functionality puts Samsung on the right track. The key difference of the Galaxy S20 to the iPhone is the edge-to-edge screen on the front, which dips at the sides and features a cut-out "O" at the top, instead of Apple's "notch" design. When the device is free-standing, the display automatically splits into two 4-inch screens so users can easily view images, contents or videos on the top half of the display, and control them on the bottom half.

"It can position the Galaxy S20 family as the ultimate Android smartphone that also delivers a future-proof purchase given the support for 5G, 8K video, and an advanced camera". You can capture eye-catching Night Hyperlapse videos or vivid low light shots with Night mode.

First off, we have the previously leaked Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition.

"The confirmed positive patient was returned to UC San Diego Health for observation and isolation until cleared by the CDC for release", it added.

The stiffness of the Z Flip's hinge allows the phone to act as a kind of kickstand, so you can keep it propped open at pretty much any angle.

Both Samsung and Google have worked to optimize apps for the Z Flip's Flex Mode.

Samsung will start shipping the Galaxy S20 series from March 6; while the Galaxy Z Flip will be available in limited quantities in Mirror Purple and Mirror Black, starting in selected markets like the USA and Korea on Feb 14, followed by Mirror Gold in select countries.

'At Samsung, we were encouraged by the excitement for the Galaxy Fold.

The earbuds are equipped with sound by AKG, as well as a two-way speaker system with an added tweeter for richer treble and a woofer for powerful bass. "It's so durable, you can fold and unfold your phone over 200,000 times". It also doesn't make any noise when you open and close it.

Samsung says that the Buds+ should be able to run for up to 11 hours on a full charge, with the companion charging case providing another 11 hours of charge in a pinch.
