Samsung has just announced what feels like its zillionth event this year. But at least we expected it. The company just sent out invitations to Galaxy Unpacked for August 11 at 10 a.m. ET, and the event will only run online.
In recent years, Samsung hosted the launch of its Note line of high-performance phones in August. However, this time around, several reports have indicated that there will be no new note. It’s a more likely possibility now after the company rolled out pen support for its flagship Galaxy S21 this year. The pen has been a trademark of the Note line since its conception and has set the series apart from its siblings, the S brand.
Instead of a new touch, it’s more likely that we’ll see new foldable phones like successor models to the Z Flip and Z Fold 2 based on the invitation. Samsung showed more flexible screen concepts in May, and while it might be a while before we see these designs in a real product, the company is clearly continuing to work on the technology. Samsung also confirmed that it will be releasing a new Galaxy Watch on this Unpacked, and the device will run a version of Wear OS that it jointly developed with Google. There’s also a good chance Samsung will launch new earbuds as the “Galaxy Buds 2” leaked twice this month.
We’ll be streaming the Samsung event live on our YouTube channel, where we’ll have a pre-show and Q&A after the company is done. Come to us to watch the launch live together and answer your questions as quickly as possible.
