AUSTRALIAN PRICE AND RELEASE DATE
The Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Samsung S20 Ultra will all release on March 6th. Preorders open up on February 12th at 9am and those who preorder will get a pair of the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Buds+ (valued at $299.95) for free.

The S20 and S20+ have a new 64 Megapixel camera whilst the S20 Ultra has a ridiculous 108 Megapixel camera. The S20 Ultra takes things further with the option to shift between a high resolution 108MP mode and a 12MP mode. There’s a new zoom technology called Space Zoom which uses a combination of Optic Zoom and Super Resolution Zoom which allows you to zoom in closer than ever before. The S20 and S20+ allow up to 30X zoom whilst the S20 Ultra uses AI powered, multiple image processing to zoom up to 100x with maximum clarity.
A new Single Take feature lets you capture photos and then modify them after the fact. In terms of video, you can shoot in 8K and then stream it to an 8K QLED (if you’re lucky enough to have one), or even grab a still from the 8K video and turn it into a high-res photo)
Gaming on the Samsung S20 series is set to be better than ever. The new devices have a 120Hz display, so games should run smoother than ever, and later this year, Forza Street is coming to the phones and will utilise the 12+ GB of RAM and a game booster working in the background to improve how the game runs on Galaxy S20 devices.
NEW SAMSUNG GALAXY BUDS+
Samsung has announced a new set of Galaxy Buds which features 2-way speakers, 3 microphones and a battery life of up to 11 hours (and an extra 11 hours in the case). The most surprising announcement is the fact that the Galaxy Buds+ are now compatible with iOS devices. These will release alongside the phones on March 6th.
