Samsung has just announced what feels like its zillionth event this year. But at least that’s something we expected. The company has just been sending out invitations to Galaxy Unpacked for August 11th at 10am ET, and the event will be held online only.
In recent years, Samsung has launched August for its Note series of high-powered phones. This time, however, several reports have indicated that there will be no new Note. This has become a more likely possibility now, after the company brought Pen support to its flagship Galaxy S21 this year. The stylus has been a hallmark of the Note line since its conception and has distinguished the series from its S-brand siblings.
Instead of a new Note, it’s more likely that we’ll see new folding phones as a follow-up to the Z Flip and Z Fold 2 based on the invitation. Samsung showed more flexible screen concepts in May, and although it might take some time until we see those designs in a real product, the company clearly continues to work on the technology. Samsung has also confirmed that it will launch a new Galaxy Watch in this Unpacked, and the device will run a version of Wear OS that it has co-engineered with Google. There’s also a good chance that Samsung will be unveiling new headphones since the “Galaxy Buds 2” debuted twice this month.
We will be broadcasting the Samsung event live our YouTube channel, where we will host a pre-show and a Q&A after the end of the company. Come with us to watch the launch together live and receive your questions answered as soon as possible.
