Galaxy Unpacked will be streamed live on and Samsung’s YouTube channel. It will take place tonight (Wednesday, August 10) at 11:00 p.m. AEST, 10:30 p.m. ACST and 9:00 p.m. AWST.

What will Samsung announce at Galaxy Unpacked?

Last year, Samsung gave us the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, and Samsung Buds 2. Here’s what we’re expecting this year.

Samsung calls its events “Unpacked” to refer to the idea of ​​the company “unboxing” something new for all to see. Although unconfirmed, we expect to see the next-generation Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, which Samsung has made a habit of introducing around this time every year for the past few years. It’s not just our own intuition, because many leaks noted have already teased the details of the event.

Galaxy ZFlip 4

Although we don’t know everything about the new devices, rumors have been circulating. In particular, the Z Flip 4, the foldable device that folds into a square shape, is expected to have a slightly larger battery than its predecessor to help fix the poor battery life of the last-gen version. The Z Flip 4 is also on the list for a larger cover screen, from the current size of 1.9 inches to two inches. It’s just a small bump in the grand scheme of things, but it can help add a bit more space for things like notifications and animated graphics.

Galaxy Z Fold 4

The Galaxy Z Fold 4, the foldable device that unfolds vertically like a book, had an alleged “100% accurate” spec sheet that did the trick. Twitter back in May. If you’re already using a Galaxy Z Fold 3, you might not feel the need to upgrade. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to be a minor update to the smartphone series rather than a complete overhaul. We’ve heard specs include a 7.6-inch QXGA+ AMOLED display on the inside and a 6.2-inch HD+ AMOLED display on the front, both with 120Hz refresh rates. Guts can feature this year’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor and up to 12GB of RAM, further cementing the Fold model as a device for the worker bee. We’ll also be curious to see if this S Pen pops up during the event announcement.

The Galaxy 5 watch

We also hope to see the revival of the only Android smartwatch worth wearing, the Galaxy Watch 4. According to 91Mobiles, which has been pretty specific with leaks and rumors in the past, Samsung is planning to refresh its lineup of smartwatch with two soon new models. In addition to a regular Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung might show off a Pro model of its smartwatch during Unpacked for those who want something that looks like a traditional watch.

While there aren’t any specific renders of what we’ll see with the Pro line, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will likely look like a more premium version of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.

Samsung Buds3

Reviewing the Samsung Buds2, announced at last year’s Galaxy Unpacked, we said the company sets a new standard for what we should expect from affordable wireless headphones. Rumor has it that we’re going to be getting a 2022 model – the Samsung Buds3.

We don’t know much else, but a report from Lets Go Digital (translated by Tech Advisor) shows a patent application from Samsung describing new Buds with biometric sensors.

We’ll be staying up for Galaxy Unpacked, so stay tuned to Gizmodo Australia for anything Samsung announces.
