February might be the month of love for everyone else. But for tech enthusiasts and Samsung fanboys/girls, it is the month for Samsung’s biannual event, Samsung Galaxy Unpacked. And this year, the event is happening on February 11 in San Francisco.
For months now, there have been rumours and speculations regarding the event. And everyone is eagerly waiting to know what is coming. The Unpacked events are always filled with both unsurprising announcements as well as surprising drops. And this year too, there have been numerous leaks in the months that went by. Yet, the tech world is anticipating for Samsung to drop something out of the ordinary.
Here is a list of gadgets that might drop at this year’s Samsung Unpacked event.
Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra
It might not be official, but the multiple leaks and rumours suggest that Samsung will skip 10 numbers ahead. And their Galaxy S series will go from Galaxy S11 to S20. We’ve already done a detailed article on the rumoured Samsung Galaxy S20.
The latest leak to come out amid the event is the camera of the phone. There is very definite speculation that one of the phones is getting a 108MP camera. And all three phones will come with a quad-lens camera at the back.
Two of the phones get a 30x digital zoom while S20 Ultra will have a whopping 100x digital zoom. Max Weinbach, a renowned leaker took to his Twitter to share some of the images captured from the brand new phones. And they are quite impressive.
WELL I'M GLAD YOU ASKED.

Samsung Galaxy S20 phones’ cameras will also come with night mode capabilities that are of way better quality than that of Samsung Galaxy S10. It’s safe to say that Samsung is making Google Pixel and iPhone a run for their money.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
It’s official, flip phones are all the rage now. And this time, they’re way better and more functional. Samsung has already launched the Galaxy Fold in 2019. And this year they’re launching Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Samsung dropped the bomb on this year’s Academy Awards after releasing an official teaser for the Z Flip during the commercial. It was an absolutely unexpected yet admirable move from the company.
The phone looks much smaller in comparison to the Galaxy Fold. And when you fold the phone takes the shape of a makeup compact. The rumours are that the Z Flip uses Snapdragon 855 instead of the latest Snapdragon 865. Therefore, the price range might also come down.
However, there is still plenty more to get from the phone. The Z Flip comes with a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display crammed into the folding frame. The smartphone also comes with a “Hideaway Hinge,” that disappears when you open the phone.
However, what you might not get is a secondary screen like the Galaxy Fold. The Z Flip will have a 1.06-inch display near the camera lenses to display the battery level, clock, and recent notifications. It will have wireless charging capabilities and a dual 12 MP sensor camera with a wide-angle and ultra-wide lens each.
Samsung Galaxy Buds+
Galaxy Buds were a sensation last year, especially when it came to the performance and affordability. The comfortable, 6-hour battery life holding earbuds were well received by the users. And this year, though it isn’t much talked about, we might get to see a better version of the Galaxy Buds.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ is rumoured to have 11-hour battery life with faster charging and better sound quality. There are also rumours that the Buds+ will come with multiple Bluetooth connections, IPX2-rating, one-touch Spotify access, and an app for both Android and iOS. The Bud+ will come in white, black, blue, and red and cost $149.
Even though the speculations are very low on a new Galaxy watch, it’s been a while since Samsung released the Galaxy Watch series. A new Galaxy Watch with much larger storage options might be in the works. And its a matter of time to know if we’ll get to see a new smartwatch from Samsung unveiling.
Samsung Galaxy Home.
Samsung got into the smart home speaker game in 2018 after introducing the Samsung Galaxy Home. But we couldn’t see the company unveiling anything regarding the speaker in 2019. However, going with the hype, we might get to witness a new smart speaker from the company this year.
But what’s coming might not be exactly what’s expected. Instead of big speakers, Samsung might opt for a Galaxy Home Mini. According to rumours, a similar device has been beta-tested since August 2019 in Korea. And the Unpacked event is the perfect place to launch a new smart home system for Samsung.
