SAN FRANCISCO -- Samsung Electronics unveiled its 5G-compatible S20 series of flagship phones at a launch event on Feb. 11, while also introducing a pocket-size folding phone that analysts expect to appeal to a broader customer base than most foldable products in the market.

Samsung said the entire S20 series -- the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra -- will support 5G in the U.S. and other select markets. The new phones range in price from $999 to $1,399, and will hit shelves on March 6.
