Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5G and Z Flip 5G now available in new Red and White colors
Samsung has introduced new colors for its flagship smartphones, the Galaxy Note 20, and the Galaxy Z Flip in the US. Customers can now grab the Galaxy Note 20 in a new ‘Mystic Red’ hue while the Galaxy Z Flip is now available in a new ‘Mystic White’ color. Notably, the new colors are available only on the 5G variants of both the devices. Up until now, the Galaxy Note 20 was available in three colors including Mystic Green, Mystic Copper, and Mystic Gray. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G on the other hand was available in Mystic Copper and Mystic Gray while the 4G version came in Mirror Black, Mirror Purple, and Mirror Gold color options.
Don’t expect anything special apart from the new colors since Samsung has confirmed that they are pretty much the same devices in terms of specs and features. The new color options will also be available at the same price but will be limited in quantities. Notably, the Mystic Red color was announced as an exclusive option alongside Mystic Blue for consumers in South Korea. Samsung had also started offering the regular 4G version of the Galaxy Note 20 in Mystic Blue for consumers in India.
Samsung had launched the Galaxy Note 20 5G alongside the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G back in August 2020. The flagships were launched with the powerful flagship Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, however, the regular Note 20 5G was criticized for having a plastic back panel and other limitations. The smartphone is available with a maximum of 8GB of RAM with up to 256GB of storage. There is a 4,300mAh battery with 25W fast charging and support for USB PD 3.0 as well, giving consumers a wider choice when picking a charger. The smartphone also features wireless charging with support for Qi as well as reverse wireless charging. As for cameras, the Galaxy Note 20 packs a 12MP primary sensor, a 64MP telephoto camera, and a 12MP camera for ultra-wide shots. At the front, the phone includes a 10MP camera for taking selfies. The smartphone is currently selling for $850 on the official Samsung store.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5G was introduced a few months after the launch of the regular 4G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip in February. This was Samsung’s second attempt at making a foldable phone but in a more conventional flip form-factor. It was launched at a time when Motorola had just announced the return of the Moto Razr in a new foldable avatar. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G features a tall 6.7-inch display when unfolded and a tiny notifications screen on the outside. It packs a Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage along with dual 12MP cameras on the outside and a 10MP selfie camera on the inside. The battery is rated at 3,300mAh with support for standard fast 15W fast wired charging and 9W wireless charging. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G can be purchased for $1350 from the Samsung store.
