The Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphones have just been revealed. The latest flagship handsets from Samsung include powerful processors, lots of memory, huge camera improvements and much more. If you’re planning on picking up the S20 or one of its variants, you might want to also consider picking up some accessories to go with your new phone. Some might want to pick up some wireless headphones or earbuds, and others might want to grab a wireless charging pad.
There are plenty of Samsung Galaxy S20 accessories to choose from, and we have our picks for the best ones you can buy.
Best Galaxy S20 accessories
1. Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus
During the Samsung Unpacked event, the company also announced its newest wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Plus. They are the successor to the older Galaxy Buds and have a similar design. The new earbuds will have features like Qi wireless charging and most importantly, 11-hour battery life. That’s nearly double the six-hour battery life for the older models. You can access Spotify directly from these new earbuds. You also have the choice of getting the Galaxy Buds Plus in red, blue, white, or black colors. Hopefully, the sound quality and other features will make buyers forget about the lack of a headphone jack in the S20 phones.
If you get one of the new Galaxy S20 smartphones and the new Galaxy Buds Plus, you will want a central place to charge them both. The Samsung Wireless Charger Duo Pad is the perfect Galaxy S20 accessory for that combo. The pad lets the Galaxy S20 charge up to 12W wirelessly, and there’s a dedicated area to charge your new Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus. The LED indicator lights let you know when devices are charging and when they reach 100%.
3. Samsung 45W charger for Galaxy S20 Ultra
If you buy the most expensive member of the Galaxy S20 family, the S20 Ultra, you will be happy to know it supports fast 45W wired charging. The bad news? The phone only comes with a 25W wired charger in the box. In order to get the full 45W experience, you will have to buy the supported charger separately. It’s available now on Amazon for $39 in white, and $50 in black.
4. Samsung Galaxy Fit
If you want an affordable fitness wearable to go with your Galaxy S20, the Samsung Galaxy Fit is the perfect choice. It has a small rectangular AMOLED display. It also has a heart rate monitor, gyroscope, and accelerometer onboard. The Galaxy Fit series runs on Realtime OS. Samsung says this will provide an easy-to-use software experience, with support for smartphone notifications, alarms, calendar alerts, and weather.
5. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2
If you want a true smartwatch with fitness features for your new Galaxy S20, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is the one to get. The latest watch sports an optical heart rate sensor, a built-in GPS, an NFC chip for Samsung Pay, a 5ATM water resistance rating, as well as a MIL-STD-810G rating and IP68 certification. It also supports Bluetooth 4.2m NFC, Wi-Fi, and there is an LTE option. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 doesn’t come with a rotating dial like other Samsung watches.
6. Samsung Galaxy S20 cases and screen protectors
There are already a bunch of third-party cases on sale for the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20 Plus, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. They have a wide range of different styles and protection. You can get an ultra-thin case such as the ones made by MNML, leather wallet cases like the ones from FYY, or the heavy-duty dual-layer protection models like the ones made by Ringke.
There’s also a bunch of screen protectors available, again for the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra phones. They should keep your touchscreen safe from scratches or falls. More cases and screen protectors for those phones will be added in the coming weeks and months, and we will update our lists accordingly.
7. SanDisk microSD cards
The Galaxy S20 series may have lost the headphone jack, but the new phones still support adding more storage via its microSD card slot, up to 1TB of extra space The ones made by SanDisk are among our favorites. They are one of the first companies to introduce microSD cards with the A1 rating, and these Class 10 UHS 1 microSD cards are some of the best options if you are looking for fast app performance. The 16GB and 32GB versions of the cards offer maximum transfer speeds up to 98MBps, while the higher storage versions, going all the way up to 512GB, bump that up to 100MBps.
8. Anker PowerCore Slim 10,000mAh battery pack
If you want an external battery pack for your S20, there are tons of them to choose from. Anker makes some of the best battery packs, including their PowerCore Slim 10,000mAh model. It’s designed to be thin and light, so you should be able to take it anywhere. However, it also has a large 10,000mAh battery, which means you can charge your Galaxy S20 phone at least twice with its USB-C port.
