The smart flagship race for 2020 is now officially underway - and Samsung is coming to it with no less than four different interesting contenders of its own.
Super advanced cameras - if you have enough space in your pockets and purse
The highlight of the סמסונג Is the modelGalaxy The formidable S20 Ultra, with an almost completely flat 6.9-inch Super AMOLED screen and a resolution of 3,200 × 1,440 pixels that operates at a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, inside a metallic shell weighing 220 grams and 167 millimeters high that dwarfs even theGalaxy Note 10 Plus in direct comparison. Also in the price tag, which will stand at € 1,350 in Europe and about NIS 4,800 or NIS 4,900 in Israel.
The massive smartphone will offer a handsome 5,000mAh battery with fast 45 watt wireless charging and Qi 15 wireless charging, 5GB or 12GB LPDDR16 memory, fast UFS 3.0 storage of between 128GB and 512GB, IP68 in-water and dust protection, system Android 10 With the One UI 2 interface, an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is built-in under the screen, speakers Stereophones and more and more - but the most interesting specification refers to the photography capabilities, with a selfie unit of 40 megapixels and a square main photo array that includes a 108 megapixel main sensor (capable pixel 9-pixel binning for 12-megapixel images with an optical stabilization system, 12-megapixel wide-angle photography with impressively large pixels, a 0.3-megapixel depth sensor, and an exciting 48-megapixel periscope camera that delivers true optical zoom 5x, 10x hybrid zoom and crazy digital zoom up to 100x.
TheGalaxy S20 andGalaxy The S20 Plus will offer super screens AMOLED Of 6.2 inches and 6.7 inches respectively with the same 3,200 × 1,440 pixel resolution and the same maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz (available only in practical 1080p resolution, it should be noted), the same advanced processing chips and the same sophisticated connectivity capabilities - but will have to settle for photo arrays Less advanced triangles with a 12-megapixel main sensor, a 64-megapixel telephoto sensor without optical zoom and also a 12-megapixel sensor for wide-angle photography that first supports recording Video Resolution 8K At 30 frames per second.
All three models will officially land in the country early next month - with chips Exynos 990 and modems that support the second, third and fourth cellular generation, without support for the fifth generation that is not yet enabled in the local landscape.
Gentlemen glass, glass
Galaxy Z Fold is the new and discounted (all relative, as usual) folding device סמסונג - When the main surprise at the launch was confirmation that it was a model that used the first of its kind in flexible and very thin glass as a protective cover for the screen, instead of the plastic shell that we saw in other folding models. Many videos have shown that even the use of nails can leave permanent imperfections on the screens inGalaxy Fold and Moto Razr, which is something the Z Fold should be at least immune to, as we will have to wait a little longer to find out what additional capabilities UTG has over theGorilla Glass Popularity.
The rest of the Galaxy Z Fold's specs include a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,636 × 1,080 pixels, chip Snapdragon 855 Plus, 4GB LPDDR8X memory, 256GB fast built-in storage, 3,300mAh built-in battery, system Android 10 and a triangular main photo array with 12 megapixel sensors for standard photography, wide angle photography and telephoto photography with a 2x zoom thanks to software cutting - with an official price tag of 1,480 euros in Europe allowing Samsung to leave dust to the main competitorMotorcycle Razr (which offers a less impressive figure for each line for the same price tag).
There is no doubt that the flexible smartphones are not yet close to realizing their full potential - but theGalaxy Z Fold feels like a significant step in the right direction.
The festive versions
Samsung will repeat the interesting move it made on the occasion of the Rio Olympics in 2016 also at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 - and will share a special Olympic version of theGalaxy S20 Plus 5G To all the attendees of the huge event, hoping to win as many credits and screen time over the coming summer.
For style lovers, סמסונג Offer a special version of theGalaxy Z Flip created in collaboration with popular designer Thom Browne, grayscale with the addition of three red, blue and white stripes and headphones and watch Galaxy Watch Active 2 compatible. The availability of this set will be limited, of course, and it will probably bump up the price accordingly, even further than the insignificant base price already introduced for the intriguing Z Flip.
The improved headphones
HeadphonesGalaxy The new Buds Plus will not contain active noise cancellation mechanisms like the AirPods Pro of Dark (Despite the early prophecies), but it does improve audio quality with a pair of Twitter-and-woofer channels per ear and a big battery life upgrade with up to 11 hours of playback Music No need to charge - and a compatible carrying case that can double this operation time.
The new model will be offered in Europe at a price of 170 euros, but it seems that its biggest popularity will be thanks to distribution as a bonus at no additional cost to those who decide to purchase one of the latest smartphones from the official representatives of סמסונג - In black, white, blue or red.
The previous generation is still here
For dessert, Samsung have decided to do a dark deed and officially address the new state of the previous flagship generation. All three modelsGalaxy S10s get a fixed price cut of $ 150, or 150 euros, relative to their original price - so theGalaxy S10e can now be obtained for about $ 600, as an interesting alternative toGalaxy S10 Lite andGalaxy Note 10 Lite for those who want water and dust protection.
It is worth noting that the actual prices in the Israeli market are already lower today than the levels announced by them סמסונג Thanks to the various parallel importers - but it will still be interesting to find out how the new balance of power will affect, which makes it clear that the generation of 2019 is still relevant and should not disappear anywhere yet.
