Samsung only is sending out invites for its next Unpacked event. There are those companies that like to sneak suggestions into their invites — and then there’s Samsung. The indicate leadings with the big, daring utterances “Get ready to unfold” and boasts a duet of flat-colored objectives that can reasonably be said to resemble the anatomy factors of the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip, respectively.
In keeping with…the general nation of the world over the past year-and-a-half, the affair ever held practically on Wednesday, August 11. Interestingly, the company is also opening up preorders on its “next flagship, ” batches and specs unseen. Perks for early preorders include “1 2 free months of Samsung Care +, up to an extra $ 200 trade-in credit and a special pre-order offer .”
But candidly, it’s generally best to wait until you actually witness the thing and maybe even read a review or two.
There’s a lot to unpack( so to speak) ahead of the occurrence. First, I’m probably not alone in expecting that the company would concentrate its next big happen on the upcoming Galaxy Watch. The big event at MWC was a bit of a dud( not unlike MWC itself ), offering up more information on the upcoming wearable partnership with Google, in lieu of announcing any hardware.
As the company indicated at the time, “The upcoming One UI Watch will debut at an upcoming Unpacked event later the summer months, sporting the new UI, as well as the upcoming joint Samsung/ Google platform.”
It seems reasonably likely that this will be the occasion where that will occur, even if the new watch doesn’t get top billing. For one thing we’re running out of summer. For another, rumors have the new Galaxy Watch established for a late-August( the 27 th) release.

All told, this could well be a pretty massive time occurrence for the company, bucking last year’s trend of meting out manoeuvres one by one at virtual develops. Word on the street is we could be seeing a Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy S21 FE( “Fan Edition” — basically the latest version of the company’s budget flagship) and even the Galaxy Buds Pro, which will more directly take over the AirPods Pro( which are getting a little long in the tooth ).
What’s missing in all of this? No moments if you said the Note. Samsung’s well-loved phablet is supposedly not coming this year, as chipping shortages continue to plague the industry. That would be a big hit to Samsung’s six-month cycle, though we’ll see how that all plays out soon enough.
The August 11 th happen kickings off at 10 AM ET/ 7AM PT.
