Reviewing the Galaxy S20+, Android Central's Daniel Bader noted:

The Galaxy S20+ is the best Galaxy S20 phone you can buy, which makes it the best phone you can buy right now. It's not perfect, but it's close. Aside from the minor quibbles I have with some aspects of the camera, and the not-great fingerprint sensor, I have nary a criticism of the experience so far, and I've really tried to find some.

The Galaxy Buds+ have also been well-received critically, currently viewed as one of the best wireless earbuds present.

The BTS variants of the Galaxy S20+ and Buds+ will be available between June 19 to July 8 on Samsung's website, Samsung says pre-order purchases can also get more BTS branded gear, including limited edition posters, and a free BTS themed wireless charger. As it's a limited edition and not really intended for broad appeal, availability will be subject to supplies.
