Galaxy Z Series Phones

Who would have ever imagined we’d see the return of flip phones? Yet, here we are with the fourth generation of the Galaxy Z Flip and Fold, the first foldable smartphones to really take off in the market. The portrait-folding Flip4 boasts an improved camera for hands-free videos or multi-angle group selfies. Meanwhile, the landscape-folding Fold4 updates its taskbar for a more PC-style layout. Updates also include the new screen with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate and a more immersive user experience. The Flip4 sells for $1,000, but you can get it for as low as $99 with eligible trade-ins. The Fold4 starts at $1,800 with a possible $1,000 discount upon eligible trade-in.

Galaxy Watch5 Series

The new Watch5 line is the fifth generation of smartwatches from Samsung, made with enhanced sapphire crystal on top of the titanium case, which is said to be five times more durable than that of its predecessor. The Watch5 Pro comes with a larger battery and new GPS capabilities such as downloadable routes and the new Trackback which serves as a breadcrumb feature. The standard Watch5 is equipped with BioActive sensors to monitor your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and blood pressure, and can also give you sleep scores and post-workout data. The Watch5 Golf Edition comes with unlimited membership to the Smart Caddie app. Available with the new D-Buckle sports band, the Watch5 Pro retails for $450, whereas the Watch5 and Watch5 Golf Edition sell for $330 apiece.

Galaxy Buds2 Pro

Galaxy has stepped up its earbuds game with the new Buds2 Pro, which is the brand’s most comfortable pair of pods yet. Built with active noise cancelation, which transitions to ambient mode upon hearing your voice so you don’t have to manually turn it on, the earphones provide a surround sound experience right inside your ears. Available in graphite, white, or purple, the Buds2 Pro retail for $230.
