Galaxy Z Flip

Samsung's rumored rival for the new Motorola Razr is now official, bringing last century's clamshell flip phone up to date with dual screens. It hardly comes as a surprise to us, though, as Samsung first revealed it during the 2020 Oscars. The prices start at $1,380.

Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra

While less buzzy than the Z Flip, Samsung's ultrapopular Galaxy phones get their annual refresh. This time, though, there's a new big phone on the block -- the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which steps into the Note 10 Plus' size turf at almost 7 inches. It adds another camera and some new photo smarts, a 120Hz OLED display (along with an ongoing partnership with Xbox Game Studios for mobile gaming) and support for two 5G standards, among other things. The 5G models start at $99 and will be available March 6. (And the S10s are getting price drops!)

This is a developing story. The original post follows.

Samsung will host its Unpacked event in San Francisco today, where the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip are expected to be announced. The event happens less than a week after the Motorola Razr foldable phone went on sale. The timing is curious because the Galaxy Z Flip is expected to have a similar, albeit square, flip phone design to the new Razr. It would be the follow up to last year's Galaxy Fold.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip's foldable glass screen: Already more impressive than Razr

  Samsung Galaxy Z Flip's foldable glass screen: Already more impressive than Razr It's already clear there are two things that the cheaper Z Flip can do that the Motorola Razr can't.I really liked the Razr when I first saw it, and I like it even now despite a few flaws. But at first bush, the Z Flip could top it.

What do we know about Samsung announcements so far?

Rumors have been ramping up ahead of the event and point to a trio of Galaxy S20 phones replacing what would normally have been called the Galaxy S11 phones. The biggest addition to the new phones is 5G support along with a 120Hz refresh rate OLED screen (matching the Asus ROG Phone 2) and a new 108-megapixel camera.

Samsung is highly likely to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip, a clamshell design meant to challenge the Motorola Razr. And we anticipate seeing some Galaxy Buds Plus and maybe even the Galaxy Watch 2.

On the invitation to the Unpacked event, is the word Galaxy in black against a white cloth background. The letter "a's" have been replaced by two square-forms rising up from under the cloth. The squares are likely two Galaxy Z Flip phones.
