Here are all the things Samsung announced at today’s Unpacked event – ProWellTech
Samsung’s first virtual unpacked was somewhere between the recent events of Microsoft and Apple in terms of overall appearance and clumsiness. The show started seven minutes late, and a number of on-screen moderators were certainly more inclined to … the uncomfortable side of things, but overall it was a decent first virtual event as the company accepts what it calls “The Next Normal” designated. ”
Towards the end of the show, Mobile Head TM Roh said: “In the future, 5G and foldable will be the most important pillars of Samsung’s future.” 5G is certainly a no-brainer. At this event, the company took a step toward standardizing next-generation wireless technology on its flagship mobile devices – and first appeared on the company’s tablets.
As expected, the big news is the latest version of Samsung’s constant favorite phablet line. The Note 20 receives 5G for both models and is now available in 6.7 and 6.9 inch models. The Ultra version offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a hybridized 50x super zoom. It uses the same technology that was introduced with the Galaxy S20 earlier this year.
The most unsung innovation could be UWB (Ultra Broadband), which enables a number of new functions, including file sharing in the immediate vicinity, a future unlock function (with partner Assa Abloy) and a function to find my phone with an AR element . Xbox head Phil Spencer A short remote cameo was also created to announce access to the Game Pass and bring more than 100 streaming titles to the device.
The models start at $ 1,000 and $ 1,300 respectively. You will start shipping on August 21st.
The Galaxy Tab series is new in the 5G game. According to Samsung, the product line includes “the first tablets to support 5G available in the United States”. The S7 and S7 + have 11- and 12.4-inch displays and start at $ 650 and $ 850, respectively. Not yet a word on pricing for the 5G versions.
The event included a few new wearables. The more exciting of the two is probably the Galaxy Buds Live. Samsung has consistently made solid wireless earbuds, and the latest version finally offers active noise cancellation and some cool features like the ability to act as a microphone for a connected Note device. The bean buds are available today for $ 170.
I would be lying if I said that the most exciting part of the Galaxy Watch 3 is not the return of the physical bezel – long the best thing about Samsung’s smartwatches. Also noteworthy is the improvement in sleep and fitness tracking, as well as an EKG monitor that Samsung announced that it has just received FDA approval. The Galaxy Watch 3 costs $ 400 and $ 430 for 41mm and 45mm, respectively. There will also be LTE models priced at $ 50 more.
As for the foldable side of things, Samsung also found its latest foldable side, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, at the event with the help of the superstar boy band BTS. The focus of the new version is mainly on fixing the numerous problems related to the predecessor. This includes a new glass reinforcement for the screen and a hinge that sweeps away dirt that can fall in and damage the screen. Further information on the leaflet will be announced on September 1st.
