The Samsung Galaxy unpack event is coming. The event, scheduled for July 27, 2023, is expected to see a second round of refreshes for the existing Samsung Galaxy lineup. Samsung will hold two new product launches every year. The first time is to release the Galaxy S series mobile phones in the first half of the year (February or March) and the folding screen mobile phones in the second half (July or August).
The first unpack event of the year takes place on February 1, 2023, with the launch of the Galaxy S23 series. Let’s look at what this conference is expected to bring in the year’s second half.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 foldable phones:
Given the high expectations for the Galaxy Z Flip 5, there’s no denying that it will be the show’s star. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 has already been confirmed to feature a large screen (larger secondary), making it a serious competitor to the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra. In addition, it will also be equipped with Snapdragon 8Gen2.
Some other expected features of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 include an IP57 rating, an improved 12-megapixel main camera, and a better hinge mechanism than the previous generation. The second highlight of Samsung’s Galaxy unpack event is the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
According to media reports, the phone will still feature the same design as its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Expected features include a waterdrop-shaped hinge, which should reduce screen creases. This hinge design also leaves no gap between the two halves of the device, a shift that would reduce the device’s thickness from 15.8-14.2mm to roughly 13mm.
Like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will use the Snapdragon 8Gen2 SoC.
Additionally, the device will support the S Pen Fold. This pen allows users to take full advantage of the large built-in screen. Considering that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a powerful processor, this combination should keep users productive.
The Galaxy Tab S9 series will also be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpack event:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 series will bring another major upgrade to the current lineup. The recent renders also hint that the upcoming device will be waterproof.
While the official media render doesn’t tell you anything about the specs, the rumor is that the model will use an AMOLED panel. Looking back, the predecessors used LCDs. And AMOLED screens are much better than LCDs. You get better colors and better viewing angles.
The three models revealed at the Galaxy unpack event will also share many other features. These include the exclusive Snapdragon 8Gen 2 For Galaxy chipset, One UI 5.1.1, and S Pen support.
The Galaxy Watch 6 will bring back the iconic rotating bezel:
In addition to phones and tablets, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Watch 6 series at the Galaxy Unpack event. Most importantly, the Watch 6 Classic is now confirmed to bring back an iconic feature, the rotating bezel.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 phones will have a similar design to the Galaxy Watch 5 series. Little is known about the functions of these watches. However, press renders show that both smartwatches have thinner bezels. Compatible with Super AMOLED screen. Other expected features include extensive fitness and health monitoring features. For example, ECG, heart rate monitor, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, and blood pressure measurement can be seen.
Additionally, both smartwatches will run Wear OS 4. It is based on One UI 5 Watch, which brings some updates compared to the previous UI. We can expect to learn all about these watches at the Galaxy unpacked event.
In addition, Galaxy Buds 3 will be unveiled at the Galaxy unpack event:
There was a two-year gap between the first two Galaxy Buds. Samsung released the Galaxy Buds in March 2019 and the Galaxy Buds 2 in August 2021. As the Galaxy Buds 2 approaches its second anniversary, Samsung is also readying the Galaxy Buds 3. It will be featured in this upcoming event on July 27!
However, we need to learn more about the new wireless earphones. Even press renders to give little detail. The only thing confirmed in the renders is a similar design to the Galaxy Buds 2. However, since Samsung offered several upgrades on the Galaxy Buds 2, we expect to see the same promotions on the Buds 3.
However, Samsung’s event will be held next month. So, we don’t need to wait too long to know about all the upcoming new products, including Galaxy Z Flip 5/Fold 5, Galaxy Tab S9 series, Galaxy Watch 6 series, and Galaxy Buds 3 information. Surprises await the opening.
