Samsung could host its next Unpacked launch event on August 11, according to reports in the company’s Korean home.
The report says that it is also likely to see the Galaxy Buds 2 and an active version of the Galaxy Watch 4. We have seen future performances of both the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and Active in recent weeks.
Given that Google and Samsung are teaming up for a new version of Wear OS, coming out of Samsung’s One UI Watch interface, it is perhaps this device that is the most anticipated to go at the next Unpacked event.
The report comes from DigitalDailyNews (via 9to5Google), which claims to have confirmed with Samsung that the next Unpacked event will take place on August 11th. This would largely fit in with what we expect from Samsung after the latest mockery at MWC 2021 last week.
Samsung’s late summer Unpacked event has traditionally involved the launch of the Galaxy Note smartphone series. However, there are indications that Samsung will cancel the range in 2021 while changing the focus to a fold.
Given rumors that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will feature compatibility with the S Pen stylus, as well as the opportunity for a larger tablet-shaped display, the Galaxy Note range may have surpassed its need. The large-screen Galaxy S21 Ultra is now also compatible with the S Pen, further reducing the single selling point for the Note series.
We contacted Samsung to try to confirm the date, but it is very unlikely that the company will release the beans more than a month before the scheduled event. Of course, we will have a wide coverage of the Unpacked event every time it takes place.
