Samsung’s getting ready to ‘unpack’ some shiny new foldables this August

Brace yourselves — Samsung’s about to drop a slew of next-generation Galaxy goodies.

The company officially confirmed its next Galaxy Unpacked event is set for August 11 and will be held via livestream at 10 a.m. ET.

As per usual, Samsung has attempted to be cryptic with its invite, but it’s fairly obvious those shapes below represent what’s likely the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (on the left) and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (on the right).

This invite doesn’t leave much to the imagination.

There’s plenty more we can glean from rumors, too. According to well-known leaker, Ice Universe, both of Samsung’s upcoming foldable phones will have much stronger glass this time around.

While the original Z Flip wasn’t plagued by an influx of reported issues with its display like the first-generation Z Fold was — including peeling screens — it did prove to be easily prone to scratches (as demonstrated on JerryRigEverything’s YouTube video).

Though Samsung certainly redeemed itself last year with a more durable Z Fold 2, stronger glass on a foldable phone is always welcome. But whether it’s the strongest remains to be seen.

As for camera specs, it looks like the Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 will each sport the same triple-camera setup as the Z Fold 2, which includes a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens.

According to XDA Developers, Samsung may also announce an array of pastel-colored Galaxy Buds 2 with active noise cancelation. The first-generation Galaxy Buds launched in 2019 — with the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Pro following since then — so it’s about time for a follow-up to the original version.

One thing we do know for certain: Samsung will unveil a new Galaxy Watch at Unpacked. The company confirmed the news last month, alongside the announcement of its new One Watch UI smartwatch interface.

While Samsung’s only alluded to one smartwatch, it’s possible we could see two debut at the event.

Another well-known leaker, Evan Blass, took to Twitter last week to post two different styles of the unreleased Galaxy Watch. Based on the images below, it looks like Samsung might be announcing the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4.

Of course, we’ll have to wait until August 11 to find out exactly what Samsung has up its sleeve. But based on rumors and leaks, it looks like the company has a lot to unpack next month.
