What we will see in Galaxy Unpacked

Samsung has not announced the presentations for the event, but it is surely a event focused on the presentation of new mobile devices from the company, smartphones, smart watches and perhaps tablets. For the rumors of the last months we expect the following:

The next generation of the series that “Invented” the concept of the ‘phablet’ It will improve the previous models in all the hardware sections, with a premium metal and glass chassis; the most powerful chipsets from Qualcomm and from Samsung itself; RAM increase up to 16 GB; Wi-Fi 6 and 5G; Improves stylus or screen refresh rate up to 120Hz.

Galaxy Fold 2

Samsung’s second attempt to power folding smartphones. Users were eagerly awaiting the arrival of folding smartphones to the market, but the launch of the first generation had a very limited effect on the mobile industry despite its attractiveness for offering something “different” in such a repetitive ecosystem.

Samsung tried it in 2019 with the original Fold, but the problems of resistance and robustness, few applications and an exorbitant price, limited their impact. The latest rumors tell us of a smartphone that would use the same ultra-thin glass technology used in the Flip. The goal is to protect the troublesome screen layout of the original.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 would increase the screen size to 7.7 inch (vs. 7.3 from the original) and also its native resolution and refresh rate that would rise to 120Hz. Screen bezels would drop to 3.8mm. As for the front camera, there is talk of a perforation in the screen to accommodate it and not the retractable camera design that was being used and that would be difficult to implement in this type of design.

The internal hardware is clearer and the Snapdragon 865 Qualcomm looks like the chipset chosen for this terminal. It is sure to have support for 5G, while the amount of 12 Gbytes of RAM and the six main cameras of the original could be lowered to save costs.

The price of $ 2,000 of the original was out of the market and if Samsung wants to position this type of mobile it has to be lowered yes or yes. It is not known how far the descent will go.

Galaxy Z Flip 5G

New version of the folding device with support for the new generation of 5G networks. Samsung wants to open a new path in folding devices with this Flip series that marks distances in design, conception and surely in the target market with the Folds.

If the Fold stands out for a horizontal opening system and a generous size in view of its ability to become a tablet, Z Flip bets for the opposite. It is a tremendously compact smartphone when folded and its size is also displayed content, in this case vertically. Yes, back to the origins of flip phones, with a well-known shell design that we have seen recently in the Moto Razr, and that allows good handling with one hand.

Your screen is a Flexible OLED with support for HDR10 + protected by a cover of “Ultrathin glass” that compared to the typical polycarbonate it should strengthen the panel considerably, develop fewer wrinkles and surely avoid some of the toughest issues in resistance and robustness that affected the Galaxy Fold. A glass that bends …

We do not expect changes to that design except for the addition of 5G.

Galaxy watch 3

New smart watch to slow down the leaders of the segment, Apple Watch. From what we know so far, the smartwatch will be marketed in two versions of 41 and 45 mm and will recover the physical rotating bezel that buyers of the original model liked because it facilitated navigation through all its functions as a complement or alternative to the use of the touch screen.

The steel case It will be the base of the basic versions, although it also points to a titanium version. All of them will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, will offer 5ATM water resistance and will have MIL-STD 810G military certification for shock and drop resistance.

It will also have GPS and Bluetooth, and the connectivity that will define the versions, the basic one with Wifi and another with support for mobile broadband 4G-LTE. Other data from the certification tells us about 5-watt wireless charging and a manufacturing in Vietnam.

It is believed to have 8 Gbytes of internal storage and a larger battery with a capacity of 330 mAh. It is certain that Samsung will enhance the software section, paying particular attention to reinforcing physical activity and health care functions.

In addition to the previous ones, it is likely that Samsung will also present a tablet such as the new Galaxy Tab S7 and new headphones such as the Galaxy Buds. We will tell you everything in rigorous live on August 5 at 10am Eastern Time, 16 hours in Spain.
