Samsung concluded its Unpacked event where they showcase their latest devices and software. We knew the main device, the Note 10, would be present but they also unveiled other devices as well.
But let’s start with the device we already knew about. The Note 10 will be the cheaper device having a 6.3-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED (aka 1080P), 8 GB of RAM, the latest Snapdragon 855 processor, 256 GB of internal storage (up to 1TB of external), 3500 mAh battery, with 3 cameras (wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto). The price for the Note 10 will be $950 and will come in white, black, blue, and aura glow (changes color based on the angle). The Note 10+ will have a 6.8-inch WQHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display (aka 1440P), 12 GB of Ram, Snapdragon 855 processor, 256 & 512 GB of internal storage (up to 1TB of external), 4300 mAh battery, with 4 cameras (wide, ultra-wide, telephoto, and depth vision). The prices for the Note 10+ will be $1100 and will come in the same colors as the Note 10 (white, black, blue, and aura glow) for the 256GB model and $100 more for the 512 GB model that currently only come in black. Now if you want the 5G model it currently will be available exclusively through Verizon (in the United States) at $1300 for the 256GB 10+, and $1400 for the 512 GB 10+.
The other items to be announced were a new Galaxy Watch, the Galaxy Watch Active 2, that will come in 3 models. The cheapest model will be the aluminum version costing $280 (Bluetooth only), followed by stainless steel for $390 & $430 (Bluetooth and LTE respectively). And lastly, the Under Armour edition that will set you back $310 (Bluetooth only), which is basically a sport’s watch with the Under Armour app.
If you still have faith in Android tablets you can snag the Galaxy Tab S6 in Wifi and LTE. This will cost $650 and $730 respectively. The Galaxy Tab S6 will come with the same great S-Pen found on the Note 10, with a nice keyboard dock with a trackpad (sold separately).
Samsung was excited to announce their partnership with Microsoft, offering cross-platform integration that will allow the Note 10 to access information (and vice versa) with a PC. This will allow users to answer calls (coming soon), respond to texts, look at pictures, and navigate through the Note 10 without touching their phone. Samsung also announced the Samsung Galaxy Book S. This Books S will be a lightweight PC that is designed to have longer battery life and use a USB type C cord for charging.
The feature that stood out the most for this event was being able to use the Note 10+ to capture an image in 3D, and then have it animate on the screen. I can see people having a lot of fun with this, and it being one of the showcase features in their commercials. And though much of the information about the Note 10 and Note 10+ we already knew, Samsung was still able to use this event to showcase an event that showed off why people should be choosing Samsung.
