South Korean smartphone major Samsung is scheduled to launch a bunch of new products at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 11, 2020. While everyone’s attention seems to be fixated on the company’s upcoming Galaxy S20 series of flagship-grade devices, we have several reasons to believe that the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event would not be just about the new Galaxy S series. There have been several rumors that seem to indicate that the company will also unveil its next-generation foldable smartphone — the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip at this very event.
Anyway, if you happen to be a Samsung fan from India who does not wish to miss any moment of the launch event, here is how you can watch the event live from the comfort of your couch (or desktop) and be among the first to catch-up on all the news.
Galaxy Unpacked 2020: When is the Samsung Unpacked Event in Indian Time?
In case you weren’t aware, Galaxy Unpacked 2020 is taking place in San Francisco, California. Per the official invite, the event kickstarts at 11 a.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time) on February 11. Considering that Indian Standard Time is 13 hours and 30 minutes ahead of Pacific Time, you will need to set your reminder to 12:30 a.m. on February 12 to ensure you don’t miss all the action. We suggest taking a nap on the afternoon of February 11, so you don’t fall asleep in the middle of the event. Also, don’t forget to grab a cup of coffee.
Now that we have the basics addressed, let’s get into the finer nitty-gritty.
How to Watch the Samsung Unpacked 2020 Event Live in India?
The easiest way to watch the Samsung Unpacked 2020 event is to simply go to the Unpacked 2020 landing page where Samsung has embedded a YouTube live stream. In case you are the lazy kind and could not bother clicking yet another link, we will embed the live stream link right below this paragraph, so you don’t need to go anywhere else to watch things unravel.
What Devices are Launching at the Samsung Unpacked 2020 Event?
As outlined in the very first paragraph of this article, the primary attraction at Samsung Unpacked 2020 is definitely the new Galaxy S20 lineup. At this point, there is talk about the company launching as many as three Galaxy S20 phones at the event. These handsets include the standard Samsung Galaxy S20, the Samsung Galaxy S20+, and a third version called the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. These names are based on rumors, and there is a good chance that we might see three devices launched with slightly different names.
With the S20 series, it is a given that these phones will sport high-end specs. All three handsets will feature QHD+ displays with Samsung’s own Super AMOLED panels. All the handsets could also boast of 120 Hz refresh rate. While all three handsets will get a competent camera, the S20 Ultra is expected to be the specs-behemoth among these and will tick the maximum number of boxes.
Another much-talked-about handset that could see officialdom at Galaxy Unpacked 2020 is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. This is the company’s second attempt at making a smartphone with a foldable display. The Galaxy Z Flip will go up against the recently launched Motorola razr.
Apart from these smartphones, Samsung is also expected to launch a few accessories at Galaxy Unpacked 2020. These include the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus – a video of which was recently leaked, revealing all its details. There is also talk about the possibility of Samsung launching a new smartwatch at the event.
When can we expect an India launch of these devices?
Samsung, over the past few years, has been very proactive as far as the Indian market is concerned. India has been consistently in the list of markets where the company’s flagship products first go on sale. 2020 is expected to be no different, and we expect Samsung to bring the new Galaxy S Series phones and the Galaxy Z Flip to India within weeks of their international launches.
