Samsung’s Unpacked event at San Francisco has just ended. And if you missed the livestream, don’t worry, we’ve got you with this quick rundown of what was launched during the event. From a big surprise, to phones, and accessories. Galaxy Fold Samsung didn’t waste any time by kicking off the show with the announcement of the first ever commercially available fully working foldable device, the Galaxy Fold. 8 years in the making, the Galaxy Fold is a combination of various innovations from the brand, from a new hinge mechanism, to a new polymer that’s both flexible and tough, to a customized UX. Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e Of course, the stars of the show, the new Samsung Galaxy S10+, S10, and S10e. The specsheet is quite long. But to give you a short summary – they’ve improved almost every aspect of these devices. From the new Infinity-O display that uses Adaptive…

Five to ten years ago, a lot of people used to think that folding devices were just going to be concepts, and were virtually impossible to make. And today, Samsung has once again stepped up its game, and has made that, a reality. Meet the new Samsung Galaxy Fold, a masterpiece defines a new category of mobile devices. The Galaxy Fold is designed to deliver a totally new user experience, allowing users to do things they couldn’t with just an ordinary smartphone. Eight years in the making, Galaxy Fold brings together various innovations – from the materials, the engineering and the display, following the debut of a prototype back in 2011. The device features a 7.3” QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED main display, and 4.6” HD+ Super AMOLED cover display. Samsung actually invented a new polymer layer and created a display around 50 percent thinner than what you’ll find in your typical smartphone display. This…

If you find the Galaxy S10+ to be, just a tad too expensive, or a bit too big, and the Galaxy S10e to be a bit underwhelming, and a bit too small, you might want to settle with Samsung Galaxy S10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3KbKzsVbzM Same Look, Just a Bit Smaller The Samsung Galaxy S10 uses the same punch hole design for the front camera, only that you won’t get the depth sensor that the S10+ has. Other than that, the front and back of the unit is basically the same. You get a slightly smaller 6.1-inch Inifinity-O display that uses Adaptive AMOLED technology for superb brightness under direct sunlight and superior color accuracy. Flagship Performance You won’t be left out in performance, as the device runs on the same Exynos 9820 octa-core processor the delivers a marginal improvement in performance and reduced power consumption versus the Exynos 9810 on the S9. And…

AR Emojis have become quite a thing these days. And it’s not so hard to see why. The feature doesn’t just allow you to make a 3D avatar of your face, but developers can take advantage of it, and perhaps discover new implementations for various apps. The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is taking AR Emoji to the next level, by adding body tracking. What this means is that now, the phone can capture not just your facial expressions but also specific points of your body to fully render a composite 3D version of you. What’s more amazing is that this is all done right from the camera of the Galaxy S10, and does not require any other 3rd party applications. Again, this opens up a myriad of possibilities: Imagine using your whole body avatar as a character in a dancing game? Maybe for trying out different clothes, shoes, and…

Great as the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ are, the company made sure that it offered a device that caters to those who prefer a more compact device, without sacrificing performance and a premium experience. That’s exactly what the new Galaxy S10e is for. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GOO4pLjMVw Compact without compromise The Galaxy S10e basically sports the same look as its bigger siblings, except for the seemingly thicker bezels on the side. With a 5.8-inch screen, it’s the most compact of the Galaxy S10 lineup. Don’t be fooled by its size, as it packs an Exynos 9820 processor under the hood, along with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card. Minus One Lens Whereas the S10 and S10+ are equipped with three rear cameras, the S10e only retains the two wide-angle cameras.
