Samsung Galaxy S20 and Z Flip launch

Galaxy Z Flip Phone Samsung surprises with Galaxy Flip Z Oscars reveal

Just like a year ago, Samsung Unpacked 2020 saw not only one new series launch, but two.

At its annual Unpacked event, where the company shows off its upcoming smartphones meant to fill your pockets and empty your wallets, Samsung unveiled the successor to its Samsung Galaxy S10 line of smartphones: the Samsung Galaxy S20. But while the rest of the world this week, Australia has to wait.

While the Galaxy S20 lineup all comes with 5G, the Z Flip is an LTE-only phone. However, if we take the phone's price of $1,500, we can expect this one to go for more with some rumors estimating a $2,500 asking price. As one indicator, the company is switching up the long-running naming convention, skipping all the way to the Galaxy S20 for the new devices.


Samsung also made a big song and dance about the Z Flip's new hinge on-stage in San Francisco. Samsung will be launching another model of the S20 with mmWave antenna modules in Q2 2020, according to Verizon. With the Galaxy S20 launch, Samsung is empowering users by giving them a choice among different carriers with the latest flagship series. Let's take a look at the choices that you have for this year's flagship Samsung phones. It debuted at Unpacked 2019 and was given an April release date for some markets, but a big question mark hung over Australia.

We have seen the Galaxy Z Flip in Purple and Black.

And perhaps it has good reason to be.


While the South Korean firm hopes the new foldable handset will help burnish its innovation credentials, consumers will be keen to see whether Samsung has overcome technological challenges and screen glitches that forced it to delay the Galaxy Fold past year. That being said, not everyone is sold on the Razr's durability. The Fold, which carries a price tag of almost $2,000, folds at a vertical crease rather than horizontally as a flip-phone design would.

That interior display features ultra-thin glass that's able to fold. This time around, Samsung will livestream the whole thing via its official website. For example, you can watch a video on the top half of the screen while typing on the bottom half. At least in theory. For the storage, you will get up to 256GB of internal storage.

It's also got a hole-punch camera, which Samsung said is the first of its kind in a foldable phone.


And then there's the 48MP telephoto camera on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which features up to 100X Space Zoom functionality. 10MP Selfie F2.4 camera.
