Samsung Galaxy S20
The internal memory of the S20 is 128 GB and can be expanded with a micro SD card up to 1 TB.
The S20 has made a small leap in display size. So it has grown from 6,1 inches (on the S10) to 6,2 inches.

The price for beginners with the LTE module and 128 GB is 899 €. If you want the 5G module, 999 € will be charged at the checkout.

This year Samsung wants to score with the Ultra. The Ultra model has a 6,9 ″ screen size. The main camera consists of a fabulous 108 MP wide-angle lens, a 48MP telephoto lens, a 12 MP ultra-wide angle lens and a VGA 3D depth camera.

The Galaxy Z Flip
Another and great novelty is the Galaxy Z Flip. The folding cell phone from Samsung, which is opened with a transverse axis in portrait format, made its debut at Unpacked 2020 in San Francisco.
The Galaxy Z Flip comes in the colors Mirror Purple and Mirror Black. The Infinity Flex-O display has a diagonal of 6,7 ″. The 10 MP front camera is located behind a punch hole in the display.
A 0,5 ″ Super AMOLED display was installed on the back, which serves as a notification bar. When closed, notifications, battery status, time and date can be displayed.
The peculiarity, according to Samsung, lies in the use of the foldable smartphone. The Galaxy Z Flip can be set up at a 90 degree angle. This means that the two halves of the screen can be used as two separate screens. For example, videos or other content can be displayed in one half and the smartphone can be controlled in the other half.
In addition, the Galaxy Z Flip can be opened in a variety of angles between 0 and 180 degrees. According to Samsung, this makes it possible to perform selifs or video chats hands-free, and a double camera module has been installed on the back. The module has a 12 MP ultra-wide angle camera and a 12 MP wide-angle camera.
The battery has 3.300 mAh and has a quick charge function.
The folding smartphone from Samsung is delivered with Android 10 and should cost € 1.480.
The Buds +
At the same event, the Korean company technically refreshed its TWR headphones again. The Buds + now have 3 instead of 2 microphones. The additional microphone on each headphone should ensure better voice quality when making calls.
The Buds + are available for € 169 in the colors black, white and blue.
