Here are the top must-know announcements from Unpacked February 2019:

Samsung Fold

The Future Unfolds

The Unpacked event kicked off with a preview of the highly anticipated Galaxy Fold (coming in the second quarter of 2019). The new foldable is a compact device with a 4.6-in. cover display that transforms into a tablet with a 7.3-in. Infinity Flex display. For powerful productivity, the Fold’s screen is the first in the world to offer smooth three-app multitasking, a feature Samsung calls App Continuity. “It’s a singular, seamless multiscreen experience,” said Justin Denison, senior vice president of product marketing. “You can switch between screens without missing a beat.”

The Samsung Galaxy Fold features some of the most powerful specifications ever seen on a smartphone, with 12GB of RAM, 512GB on-board storage and support for Universal Flash Storage 3.0, so that access to external data is twice as fast. And productivity never stops for users of the Fold, which runs on two batteries with a total capacity of 4,380mAh. “That’s a whole lot of power,” Denison pointed out.

A Phone That Does More Work

Next up, Unpacked attendees got a full rundown on the next-gen Galaxy S10 devices. The top of the range Samsung Galaxy S10+ comes with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of onboard storage. “That’s laptop-level storage without the laptop,” said Drew Blackard, senior director of product marketing.

A Supercomputer in Your Pocket

The Samsung Galaxy S10’s CPU is 29 percent faster than the S9, while the GPU is 37 percent faster. “It’s like a supercomputer in your pocket,” said Blackard. Meanwhile, the S10+’s all-day battery runs 25 percent longer than the S9+, due to a “new layer of intelligence that learns how you use your phone, identifies which apps you use less often and then optimizes CPU usage,” Blackard said.

Samsung Ultrasonic Fingerprint

Ultrasonic Fingerprint ID

The S10 features the world’s first ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on a smartphone. Users only need to press their thumb or finger against the bottom of the Infinity display, which emits imperceptible ultrasonic waves to trace the ridges and valleys of your unique fingerprint. “It all happens in a blink of an eye,” said Suzanne De Silva, director of product marketing. “It makes unlocking your S10 easier than ever … while the vault-like security will keep your data safe.”

Samsung S10 5G

The 5G Future

To close out the Unpacked event, Samsung previewed the upcoming 5G version of the S10. The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is not just “hyper fast” with “unparalleled connectivity,” according to Blackard. It also comes with a 6.7-in. Dynamic AMOLED display and a 4,500mAh battery. “That’s the biggest screen and the biggest battery ever on a Galaxy device,” said Blackard. The Galaxy S10 5G will be available first on the Verizon network.
