Samsung Unpacked 2020 – Highlights of new products

We are now fully recovered from the exciting Samsung Unpacked launch event 2020. This an annual event where Samsung unveils the latest gadgets in their portfolio. This virtual event saw Samsung do a global unveil of the following devices: Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphones, a smarter S Pen, Galaxy Z Fold 2, a Galaxy Tab S7 tablet, the Galaxy Buds Live,  Galaxy Watch 3.

I particularly like their new partnerships that seek to integrate all the work that you do, see the video here.  The partnership with Microsoft enables you to work and play seamlessly from your phone, laptop or tablet. The second partnership that was interesting is with Google, using AI to find your smart devices like the Galaxy Buds, if forgot where you placed them. We think that is pretty neat so we are not turning our houses upside down.

The gaming community will be happy about the partnership with Microsoft, Samsung and X-box  that comes with a unique Xbox pass partnership app.  This app will allow Xbox players to redeem tokens and make in-app purchases like buying skins in the Xbox Store. The Xbox Game Pass app available on the Google Play Store will not support these types of in-app purchases. Samsung is also offering a gaming bundle for the Galaxy Note 20 that includes three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PowerA’s MOGA XP5-X Plus. The controller is made with the game streaming (xCloud) part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in mind, and it can keep your phone charged while you game.

I am excited to get my hands particularly on the Galaxy Watch 3 – the health monitoring options, in addition to the sleekness it comes with, at Smart News Kenya is we would like to try it out and give our feedback. Samsung Unpacked 2020 had a lot to take in, this was a good first virtual launch. Now wait for the local pricing on the gadgets unveiled. Also looking forward to reviewing the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra that supports 5G connectivity.
