Denny Galant, head of product marketing, IT and mobile, Samsung Electronics Indonesia, said in a media briefing in San Francisco that the new technology in the camera, video and also the phone display aimed to meet the requirements of those who like to express themselves through social media platforms using smartphones. Having learned from past mistakes, Samsung made a foldable phone that looks and feels solid. The Galaxy Z Flip tones it down a notch when it comes to hardware, but hey - it's foldable! 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.

Galaxy V would have been even more evocative of the Z Flip's profile, but alas, Samsung already used that letter on a forgettable phone back in 2014. 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. But we wonder - if you had $1.4k burning a hole through your pocket right now, which one of these phones would you get? "Combining Space Zoom, Singe Take, Bright Night and much more, the Galaxy S20 will be the most compelling smartphone on the market".

Talking about the Galaxy S20+ 5G, it features a slightly larger 6.7-inch WQHD+ Dynamic AMOLED with the same 20:9 aspect ratio. The entry-level S20 is no slouch with a more-than-respectable 12GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 4000 mAh battery, and impressive array of camera sensors, but the S20 Ultra brings whole new tier of performance with up to 16 GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, 5000 mAh battery, a whopping 108-megapixel wide-angle camera, and 40-megapixel selfie camera that could be a welcome addition for certain kinds of bloggers and creative professionals.

Some attendees at the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event were spotted with masks on throughout the hourlong show, being aware of the continuously spreading virus across the world, particularly in the Asian region, including South Korea, Samsung's home country.
