Samsung Galaxy S20 is a low-cost and with its 151.7mm x 69.1mm also the smallest model from the devices presented at the Unpacked event. Three rear cameras, the 12MP ultra-wide, 64MP telephoto and 12MP wide lenses are placed in a rectangle. The 10MP front camera is placed in the punch-hole at the top of the display. The basic version lacks 5G connectivity. You will be able to choose amongst three colours - Cosmic Grey, Cloud Blue and Cloud Pink. The starting price for 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage will be around $1,349.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus is pretty much the same as his brother the S20, only bigger, it measures 161.9mm x 73.7mm and has one rear camera lens more. The battery to keep it alive throughout the day is also a little bit more powerful, 4,500mAH. Cosmic Grey, Cloud Blue and Cosmic Black are the colours that you will be able to choose from. For the basic option without 5G, you will have to pay at least $1,499.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is the only device in a basic version with 5G support. For capturing perfect photos there are the outstanding 108MP wide-angle, 48MP telephoto and 12MP ultra-wide lenses and Time-of-flight sensor and for the first time, you can get close to every detail. As for the front selfie cam, it's sitting at a casual 40MP. To power all the features that the Ultra provides, there is a rocking 5,000mAH battery built-in. Unlike the S20 and S20+ that will come in three colour options, the Ultra is coming in two colours only, the Cosmic Grey and Cosmic Black. For the best of S20 series and the biggest of them, it measures 166.9mm x 76.0mm, you will also have to pay the highest price, starting at $1,999.

Galaxy Z Flip with a foldable screen comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage. The Galaxy Z Flip is a vertical-oriented that folds in the middle which brings back memories of the phones from the mid-2000s. When unfolded the Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with ultra-thin glass measures 167.9mm x 73.6mm. The downside of this model is that it lacks 5G capability. When folded, you can answer the call on a small screen next to the camera lenses, the 12-megapixel wide-angle lens as well as a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens. Of course, it will be released in Australia in a few coming months and the starting price will be around $2,055.
To answer to Apple’s AirPods, Samsung upgraded their Galaxy Buds+, they are bringing upgraded battery life up to 11 hours on a full charge, faster charging and better audio quality.
