The “Galaxy” is getting a little bigger. Samsung has rolled out an onslaught of new mobile devices suited for personal as well as commercial and business use.

This fall’s rollout includes two new versions of its pen-enabled Samsung Galaxy Note phones, two tablets and a foldable. The five new devices all can connect to the latest Wi-Fi 6 wireless LANs and are enabled for 5G services. Benefits of the latter are subject to availability of 5G services, which still remains spotty in most areas. But for those who plan to own their devices for many years, 5G support could be a key consideration when buying a new one.

The landscape for 5G devices is expanding with this week’s rollout of the new Motorola Razr and Google Pixel phones. And the industry is watching for an anticipated launch of the first 5G-capabile iPhones from Apple this month.

Samsung so far has the most varied portfolio of 5G devices. The company has expanded its efforts to enable channel partners to bundle its devices with business, commercial and enterprise solutions. Since revamping its Ascend partner program earlier this year, the company has consolidated its approach to bundling its displays and mobile devices.

Focusing on small and medium businesses (SMBs), Samsung’s AppStack SaaS marketplace, in partnership with Google, also went live in July. AppStack is an online store of apps for small business professionals to boost its Android device portfolio. AppStack hosts 10 apps, with seven in the pipeline.

The five latest devices unveiled at Samsung’s fall Unpacked launch event have begun shipping. Samsung also has a new laptop that is 5G-ready. Besides 5G, the company has improved how its newest devices can connect with each other and with external displays. And Samsung has built on its alliance with Microsoft to extend integration of the new devices with Windows and Office.
