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

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.

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.

Last minute Google Pixel 4 leaks reveal possible US price and box accessories

Google Pixel 4 render 1 Concept Creator

There’s just one day to go for the new Google Pixel 4 series to launch and leaks around the two new Android phones keep coming. One of the latest leaks reveals what could be the price for the Google Pixel 4 XL in the US. Meanwhile, images of the Google Pixel 4 retail box have appeared on Reddit, revealing all the accessories you will get with the phone.

Google Pixel 4 XL price

A Best Buy employee apparently provided 9to5Google with information regarding the price of the Pixel 4 XL. He gave the publication a screenshot of the retailer’s system, revealing that the larger 2019 Pixel will be priced at $ 999. If true, this will make the Pixel 4 XL $ 100 more expensive than the Pixel 3 XL.

The Pixel 4 series was previously tipped to cost CA$ 1,049.95 ($ 795) in Canada for the 64GB model. The Pixel 4 XL was rumoured to cost CA$ 1,359 ($ 1,029) for the 128GB variant.

We would advise our readers not to take these leaked prices at face value since none of these have been officially confirmed or strongly verified. 9to5Google notes that it is possible for the US Pixel 4 XL price listed on Best Buy to be a placeholder.

Pixel 4 retail box

New images shared on Reddit show what looks like the retail box for the smaller “Just Black” 2019 Pixel. The front of the box features the rear panel of the phone with the square camera setup. The image matches all previous Pixel 4 leaks.

The back of the box reveals specs such as 64GB storage and a 5.7-inch screen. These are also in line with all the information about the Pixel 4 that has been floating around these past few months.

The box also mentions the accessories that come bundled with the Pixel 4 unit. You will apparently get an 18W USB-C power adapter, a charging cable, and a Quick Switch Adapter in the box. What you don’t get is a pair of headphones or a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter.

The Pixel 4 series launches on October 15. Stay tuned to Android Authority as we bring you all the hot news from the Made By Google event tomorrow.

Deal: HTC is once again offering 50% off all accessories

HTC hot deals

A few weeks before Christmas, HTC released their weekly Hot Deal that gave 50% off all accessories on the company’s site. That deal is back, and only lasts until midnight tonight (December 30th), so you better act fast if you want to snag some savings.

The Hot Deal includes every accessory listed on the site. That includes all cases, chargers, car kits, external batteries, speakers, and even the HTC Fetch. While it’s not on the main accessory page, the deal also extends to Nexus 9 accessories, including the Magic Cover. All colors are available except for the Coral Amethyst variant, but that still leaves you with Mint Indigo, Indigo Black and Lime Stone options. Unfortunately, the Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio is out of stock, so you’ll still have to pay full price for it through Google Play.

The 50% off discount will apply to your order when you go to checkout, so don’t be alarmed at the high prices you see when browsing through the site. What’s more, HTC is also offering free shipping for U.S.A. residents, making this a tough deal to pass up. Additionally, the company is still offering 20% off select smartphones until January 2nd, so you may be able to save quite a bit more than you imagined.

Head to the link below to grab some new accessories. Is anyone planning on picking anything up? Let us know what you get!
