One fairly extensive leak set out what Samsung has planned for its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event. Other leaks pointed to foldable phones, a couple of Wear OS smartwatches, and new earbuds, but now we can see more of the new products, what they’re called, and what color options we could get.
Daily digital news
Evan Blass’ latest leak on Twitter has animated tours of all devices. These include the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Galaxy S21 FE, the Galaxy Watch 4, the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Smartwatches and the Galaxy Buds 2nd largest phone manufacturer trying out the new (still expensive) form factor. It’s still a key differentiator between the Galaxy family and pretty much every other line of phones. This is especially true in the west, where foldable devices from Huawei, ZTE, and Xiaomi, and the others don’t get the same amount of attention (or ad spend) as the Galaxy Fold.
Will Samsung offer a foldable model at a cheaper price? We do not know yet. The leaks don’t share prices or launch dates, so Samsung will have something to reveal when Unpacked launches, which will likely be very soon.

day, this year
Tag Heuer has been making premium smartwatches for a few years now, but its latest model has an unusual star. Not an athlete or a model, but a plumber. The company announced that it is working with Nintendo to develop a Super Mario edition of its connected smartwatch that shows “the intrepid, iconic hero” in various dials and animations.
It will still be a limited edition premium smartwatch priced at £ 2,150 and run on Google’s Wear OS. The most notable uses of Mario seems to have to do with your movement. The face of the watch becomes “more vigorous and lively, the more active the wearer is”. As you move around each day, you will get different animations as you hit 25, 50, 75, and 100 percent of your step goal. As in some games, when you hit the 100 percent mark, Mario will jump to the top of a flagpole. Continue reading.
