Yesterday Samsung surprised us by revealing the second generation of it’s Galaxy Fold lineup. A device retailing for $2000 is not for the common consumers, even though it is much more refined than the previous generation and sort of justifies its cost, . In contrast, today Samsung revealed products that lie on the opposite side of the budget spectrum as compared to Galaxy Z Fold 2, as these devices are meant to be more affordable.
Today at the ‘Life Unstoppable‘ event, Samsung revealed a mid-range phone i.e Galaxy A42 5G, Galaxy Tab A7, Galaxy Fit 2, and Wireless Charger Trio. These devices are targetted more towards consumers who don’t have money to burn. However, the exact cost of these devices is yet to be known as growing anticipation among the fans is the trend in 2020 (fingers pointing towards Microsoft and Sony).
Samsung Galaxy A42 5G
Starting off with Galaxy A42 5G, it is the next-gen version of their previous budget phone i.e. Galaxy A41 which was released last year. The budget-friendly phone features a 6.6′ AMOLED display with a small notch at the top.
Samsung has always been on point with its displays so we don’t really have any concerns in that department. The phone will have a quad-camera set up at the back, however, they haven’t revealed more information about it. Additionally, Galaxy A42 5G will support 5G, unlike its predecessor.
Apart from this, Samsung hasn’t revealed more details about the phone. We don’t know the components it will be running with or the software it will support. But we can make a safe bet on it being Android 10 along with Samsungs latest UI. The phone is planned to be released at the end of this year and we will get more information when we get our hands on it. For now, you can look at the picture of the phone below.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7
Galaxy Tab A7 will be the latest addition to Samsung’s tablet lineup. It will feature a 10.4″ TFT display with the resolution of 2000 x 1200, placed in the middle with even bezels surrounding it. The display has an 80% screen to body ratio. The body is made up of metal to give a premium feel to it.
Moreover, the tablet features a quad-speaker set up along with a ‘Long-lasting Battery’ (7040mAh). The rear camera is 8MP and will be able to record 1080p videos at 30 fps. As for the front camera, it will be 5MP and will be able to shoot 1080p @ 30fps videos.
The tablet will be powered by an Octa-core (4×2.0 GHz Kryo 260 Gold & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver) processor paired with an Adreno 610 GPU. There will be two variants of the tablet i.e 32GB/3GB RAM and 64GB/3GB RAM with the option to expand your storage with a micro SD card. So far the price and release date are unknown, however, we might find out more about them on 11th September.
Galaxy Fit 2
Another thing unveiled at the event was Galaxy Fit 2. It is the upgraded version of last year’s Galaxy Fit smartwatch. The fitness band has a similar design to the last years and it will feature a colored display. It has a 1.1″ AMOLED display which will have up to 70 display faces and virtual buttons at the bottom. Samsung claims that the watch can last for 15 days on a single watch and with some tweaks can last to even 21 days.
The fitness band will be able to track your heart rate, calories burnt, distance traveled, as well as your sleep quality. Galaxy Fit 2 will be able to calculate how much deep sleep you are getting. It is also designed to produce less sweat. Apart from this information, Samsung has kept its mouth shut regarding the release date or the price of the device.
Wireless Charger Trio
If you are a fan of wireless charging, you will love this one. Samsungs Wireless Charger Trio is a charging pad designed to charge up to 3 devices at the same time. It will be able to charge any device which supports wireless charging. The exact charging speed is yet to be known, however, we can expect it to deliver fast charging. The charging pad is itself charged with a type-C to type-C cable.
The pad will be available in two colors, black and white. Again, the price and release date are unknown but we will hopefully get to know more about the device in the upcoming weeks.
