The wait is over! Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Fold with much fanfare at its UNPACKED 2019 event last night. And there's so much more to it. With that in mind, we give you the entire timeline of how the Galaxy UNPACKED event unfolded as it is and everything Samsung announced, right from its foldable phone to the all-new 5G smartphone. Let's take a look:
Samsung opened the show with the Galaxy Fold, Samsung's commercial entry in the foldable phones segment. Infact, Samsung is the first smartphone brand to scratch the surface and it's fascinating!
Samsung briefly demonstrated during the launch what the Galaxy Fold is all about. When folded, it provides users with the surface area of 4.7 inches, and that's fairly compact form-factor except for some additional bulk but that should be manageable.
Remember, we haven't had a chance to use the Galaxy Fold ourselves. So, stay tuned to see how our experience "unfolds" with the Galaxy Fold. You have four colour options to choose from and guess what! You can also customise the colour of the hinge, as well.
You can use up to three apps side-by-side. Samsung Galaxy Fold is powered by the 7nm processor and 12 gigs of RAM. Inside is 512 gigs of storage. It has two batteries combines to become one at 4,380mAh.
Then came the Galaxy S10! Samsung announced three new models under its newest line-up: Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e. While the S10 and S10+ feature ultrasonic in-display fingerprint reader, the S10e features a side fingerprint reader embedded into the power button.
Samsung ensures you can leverage maximum screen possible. As a result, it has come up with a selfie camera that goes behind the display. Now there's reverse-compatible wireless charging support, too. While the S10 and S10+ are more expensive, the S10e appears to be Samsung's answer to Apple iPhone XR.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Buds that resembles Samsung's earlier Gear IconX to a great extent. Galaxy Buds feature AKG audio and adaptive dual microphones to recognise ambient sound levels to capture your voice more clearly.
Samsung claims 6 hours of music streaming on a single charge. Now there's Bixby on-board, you can talk to Bixby in German, Italian and Spanish, as well. Samsung Galaxy Buds goes on sale starting March 8 for $129.
Samsung expanded its wearable portfolio with two new devices: Samsung Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Fit. The Watch flaunts super-light aluminum, comfortable strap and Samsung's One UI that offers 60,000 watch faces. Meanwhile, Galaxy Fit is a Fitbit rival. Both the wearables have certain workout modes and yes, they both can monitor your sleep.
Last but not least, Samsung officially embarked its debut in 5G smartphones segment! The Galaxy S10 5G promises to deliver super-fast connectivity processing. It also sports a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, a 4,500mAh battery with a 25W charger.
Well, that's pretty much everything Samsung announced last night at Galaxy UNPACKED event in San Francisco. Meanwhile, stay tuned for the continued coverage around Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy Fold and more!
