Everything we expect from Samsung Unpacked, from the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to the Galaxy Watch 5

Another Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event scheduled for Wednesday, August 10. We expect to see some new versions of the company flagship folding phones and smartwatches that will be revealed – but there is always a chance for unexpected premieres of new devices.

The event invitation seen above, showing the Z Flip foldable phone, suggests that we will see new versions of Samsung foldable phones. It fits with previous leak from tipster Evan Blass predicting new versions Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and shell Samsung Galaxy With Cover 3, which was released in August 2021.

Everything we expect from Samsung


Don’t expect too much progress with Samsung’s next foldable phones. Rumors suggest the size of the tablet Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 may have a new hinge and slimmer design, but jury unsure whether it will include an S Pen socket such as Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Other rumors predict that the foldable will include the faster Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset, as well as a larger external display that requires its own camera below the display to complement the one on the internal screen.

Makeup looks tight Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 according to other rumors it could get a bigger cover display which could make it much more useful for reading notifications and previewing selfie photos.

Even if the new folding components only have incremental specification improvements, the price may be the biggest improvement. The Galaxy Fold 3 it was cheaper than its predecessor at $ 1,800 (£ 1,599, AU $ 2,499), which is still about twice as expensive as most premium smartphones. The Galaxy Z Flap 3 shockingly at $ 1,000 (£ 949, AU $ 1,499) or roughly the price of the iPhone 13 Pro, making it the cheapest foldable yet and viable alternative to standard flat smartphones.

But the upcoming Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 could be even cheaper, predicts analyst Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who tweeted that Samsung sped up production to produce twice as many new foldable models as last year’s models, suggesting a possible price cut.

In any case, we expect the new foldable to sell well as the Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3 sold more units in the month of its release sold throughout 2020. With 88% of the over 7 million foldable units sold in 2021, Samsung is in a strong position to continue to dominate the niche folding market expected growth to over 27 million sold in 2025.

Samsung could introduce other products to accompany the foldable folding, and most likely it is Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. Rumors predict that the next version of the premium smartwatch line could get a body temperature sensor and better battery life, as well as an updated design. We hope that this will also fix the glaring flaw Galaxy watch 4 – no iPhone support – as well as better Wear OS 3 integration as we felt last year’s watch got dragged between Google and Samsung ecosystems.

There are other things Samsung can boast of, such as successors Galactic Buds 2 earphones, tablets, or laptops, but we haven’t heard many rumors suggesting any of them might emerge. Nevertheless, we could all be surprised when we looked at the anticipated compilations.

To encourage customers to book their phones in advance, from July 19 to August 10, Samsung offers an extensive list of discounts based on a variety of packages ranging from a maximum of $ 200 off for those who book the Galaxy Phone, Watch, and Buds to a minimum of $ 30 off for a Galaxy Buds booking alone. While this could be a clue as to what is to come in Unpacked, the savings could be on older Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Buds.

The event is scheduled for 9am ET / 6:00 PT. topwatchbest will be watching and reporting on the disclosures.
