Samsung will host its next Unpacked live stream and expectations are high. The company used introduced new foldable phones, smartwatches, and earbuds, and the company in 2022. However, what will emerge this time around? Don’t worry – we’ll let you know what you can expect as Samsung moves into the virtual phase.
How to watch Unpacked
It will be easy to keep track of Samsung’s announcements. The company will live stream Unpacked on August 10 at 9 a.m. Eastern. You can watch on and you’ll usually find a broadcast on . Naturally, you can expect event scope from Engadget.
Galaxy Z Fold 4
The It’s almost a year old, so it’s believed to be due to an update – and Samsung’s own Unpacked trailers suggest that an update is coming. With that said, we wouldn’t expect the Z Fold 4 to represent a major overhaul. If the leak is correct, the new model will represent an evolution of the foldable panel.
shared by OnLeaks and Smartprix, Evan Blass and 91Mobileshints that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will combine the phone-tablet formula of the lineup with design elements from . You’ll get super-similar rear camera bumps and slightly tweaked dimensions, but otherwise it’s going to be very familiar. Not that we rule out functional changes. Leaker Ice Universe For example, the Z Fold 4 will have less prominent wrinkles on the screen.
Performance upgrade could be more substantial, if predictable. Notable leaker Yogesh Brar Z Fold 4 will use chip paired with 12GB or 16GB of RAM. You’ll see an upgraded 50-megapixel main rear camera as well as a much sharper 16-megapixel in-display camera. You can expect the familiar 12MP ultra-wide sensor and 3X zoom on the back and an external 10MP selfie camera. However, there is a dispute about the storage. While Brar confirmed that the Z Fold 4 will start with 256GB of space, Evan Blass has reference to the 128GB version.
That hosting question can affect the price. While Youtuber Jon Prosser and others The Galaxy Z Fold 4 will arrive in stores on August 26, it’s unclear what the device’s price will be. 128GB variant could lead to lower starting price of its predecessor. Just don’t expect higher capacities than last year when there was no mention of 512GB external storage options.
Galaxy Z Flip 4
There’s even less mystery for the next thing . Samsung’s teaser video for the Unpacked event very clearly shows a new version of the clamshell phone, so it’s really just a question of what the Z Flip 4 will offer compared to its predecessor.
Don’t expect a major redesign. If the OnLeaks and Evan Blass images (plus the deleted TechTalkTV video) are accurate, then the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is almost a clone of the Flip 3 with the same rear camera, slightly larger external display, and different colors. different colors. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it can be disappointing if you’re looking for a whole new look. The Fold 4’s less pronounced folding screen could also be affected.
The upgrades under the hood will be more subtle than the Fold 4, according to rumors. Yogesh Brar The Z Flip 4 will make the leap to the 1st generation Snapdragon 8+, but will still include 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of non-expandable memory, and a 6.7-inch 120Hz display. However, you’ll get a larger 3,700mAh battery (versus 3,300mAh in the Flip 3) and 25W charging (versus 15W), so the Flip 4 can last longer. The dual 12MP rear camera and 10MP selfie camera of the front phone will be carried over to the new model.
Samsung usually releases new Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold models at the same time, and Prosser has heard that the Flip 4 will arrive in stores on August 26 just like its higher-end counterpart. If so, cost may be the only remaining mystery. It is not certain that Flip 4 will stick to its ancestors price. However, if there is a 128GB model, we wouldn’t expect the latest device to be much more expensive, if at all.
Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro
The marks the revival of Samsung’s smartwatch strategy with the move to . The company could be eager to maintain that momentum, as there are signs it’s getting ready for a Galaxy Watch 5 family with a few notable changes.
If 91Mobiles‘ is authentic, Samsung will ditch its higher-end Classic model in favor of a more modern-looking (if still classy) Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. You might not get the knurled bezel of earlier smartwatches, but the Pro will upgrade from a steel case to a lightweight yet durable titanium. Samsung accidentally in its Health app, although it provides no further clues.
The regular Galaxy Watch 5 won’t be a big departure. You can expect the same minimalist, health-oriented design as before. SamMobile one rumor that the wearable would have a 10% larger battery than its same-year counterpart, but it’s unclear if that translates to a longer-lasting watch. It is not yet clear if Samsung will implement the new processor or if the body sensor could affect battery life.
You may pay more than you can expect. WinFutureRoland Quandt’s that the regular Galaxy Watch 5 will start around €300 (about $306) for 40mm Bluetooth mode and go as high as €400 ($409) for a 44mm LTE device. Titanium has been historically expensive watch case materials, and that would increase the price of the 5 Pro to around €490 ($502) for the 45mm Bluetooth model and €540 ($552) for the LTE equivalent.
New Galaxy Buds Pro
Aesthetically, true wireless earbuds will look almost identical to existing headphones introduced in January 2021. 9to5Google claims you’ll get questionably useful 24-bit audio support, and there have been whispers about a bigger battery. Otherwise, Samsung can be safe with the familiar active noise cancellation and support for multi-device pairing.
Be prepared to pay extra. One 9to5 Retail experts reckon the Buds 2 Pro will cost $230, or significantly more than $30. Though that still makes them more affordable than competitors like (officially $249), you might not save much by going with Samsung’s headphones.
We wouldn’t rule out a surprise or two at the August Unpacked event, but we wouldn’t count on any either. There are no substitutes for or other types of in-ear headphones. Similarly, Samsung updated the Galaxy A and S series earlier this year. The company’s next hardware updates are very predictable at this stage, and any unusual announcements are likely to be reserved for .
