Samsung has made it official – the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on August 11, 2021. The invite itself doesn’t reveal too much information. However, the illustration and the tagline “Get ready to unfold” suggest that we ought to expect the release of the new generation of foldables – the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Even though nothing about the event hints at a third product, we might also see a debut of the newest Galaxy Watch, as Samsung disclosed at the end of June this year.
So, this is certainly good news if you have a sentimental weakness for flip phones while enjoying convenient mobile innovations. What’s more, we’ve heard that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have prices as far as 20% lower than their predecessors’. So even though we’re not sure about the exact cost, it is exceptional to see lower prices for a better version of what we’ve already seen.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the design of these devices has already leaked. Galaxy Z Fold 3 official press renders show that the device is pretty similar to its forerunner, the Galaxy Z Fold 2. However, it does have a bigger front display – 7.55-inch for the main display and 6.23-inch for the outside display. So, you will basically be able to watch YouTube videos, scroll through Instagram, and do your online shopping on a tablet-sized screen anywhere you go.
Moreover, it looks like the Galaxy Fold 3 will be available in a matte finish black, navy green, and gradient pink. Perhaps the most thrilling news is that the foldable phone will also offer support for the S Pen. However, there is still no data on whether customers will have to purchase it separately or will it come in a bundle with the phone.
The increase in pocketability-offering Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the other device that Samsung will unveil at the Unpacked event. This generation of the model will have a slightly larger screen on the outside. Although it resembles the Z Flip 1, the 1.9-inch front display and the two larger cameras make quite a difference. So naturally, this improvement of the screen size will allow for more convenient use.
Moreover, the two foldables will have an IP (Ingress Protection) rating, unlike the other foldable phones that Samsung has released by now. Although the exact rating is still undisclosed, this is quite a significant upgrade that makes the devices notably more durable.
The long-anticipated Samsung and Google team up will most likely be a part of the upcoming Samsung reveal, too. The Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatch will be the first to run the merge of Google’s Wear OS and Samsung’s Tizen. The new operating system will give attention to better syncing, longer battery life, and faster performance, thus opening a new chapter in mobile innovations.
