Samsung recently hosted one of its biggest event of the year, Samsung Unpacked 2019 at San Francisco. The company launched a wide range of products at the event for different types of consumers. From Samsung Galaxy Fold to Galaxy Buds, here’s everything that the South Korean giant launched on today.
Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+
Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e are a new range of flagship devices by the company. While the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ are true flagship devices, with Galaxy S10e, the company has cut a few corners. All of the smartphones are powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The base variant of the Galaxy S10e offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage whereas the Galaxy S10+ also comes in an 8GB RAM + 1TB storage variant. All these phones accept microSD card for further expansion.
As for the optics, the Galaxy S10 and S10+ sport a triple camera set up at the back whereas the galaxy S10e settles for a dual-camera setup. Up front, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e feature a 10-megapixel selfie shooter and the Galaxy S10+ gets a dual-camera setup.
Samsung Galaxy S10e will be available at a starting price of USD 749 (roughly Rs. 53,000). The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ come with starting price tags of USD 899 (roughly Rs. 64,000) and USD 999 (roughly Rs. 71,000) respectively.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
As soon as the company kicked off the event, they unveiled the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone. The new foldable flagship smartphone comes with a 4.6-inch display on the outside and a 7.3-inch display on the inside. It runs on Android 9 Pie based OneUI and sports a total of six cameras.
Samsung Galaxy Fit
Samsung Galaxy fit is the successor to the Gear Fit 2. Priced at USD 99 (roughly Rs. 7,000), the new fitness tracker brings a 0.95-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 120mAh battery, Samsung’s new RealtimeOS, NFC, 5ATM water resistance, a heart rate monitor and much more.
Samsung Galaxy Watch Active
The Galaxy Watch Active is a lighter version of the Galaxy Watch. It does skip on to a few features and it aims at runners and fitness geeks. The watch has a smaller 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360×360. One of the biggest trade-offs here is the missing ring that is loved by Samsung Galaxy Watch users. On the upside, it now has IP68 waterproofing with up to 50 metres.
The Galaxy Watch Active is powered by the Exynos 9110 chipset. It comes with 768MB of RAM paired with 4GB of onboard storage. The watch runs on Samsung’s own TizenOS. It will be available starting March 8 at a price of USD 199.99 (roughly Rs. 15,000). It will come in four colours, including Silver, Black, Rose Gold and Sea Green.
Samsung Galaxy Buds
The Samsung Galaxy Buds are the successors to the Gear Icon X. The new truly wireless earphones are even lighter and provide a better battery backup. The audio is powered by AKG and they also support Bixby and Bluetooth 5.0. One of the biggest improvements over the Gear Icon X is the added Qi Wireless charging support for the case. The new Buds will be available in Black or White colour variants at a price of USD 129 (roughly Rs. 9,200).
