Samsung has officially declared openly a date for the unveiling of the next version of the Galaxy Z fold 3 and Galaxy Z flips 3, both of which have already leaked relatively.
Samsung has not been shy about these possibilities as a quick look at its invite reveals the outline for both devices and has been set to hold its next unpacked event on August 11, 2021, at 10 AM ET 7 AM PT.
Samsung is also predicted to confirm its new Galaxy watches which would be the first to use the new combined Wear platform that Google I/O announced earlier this year.
The event will be held virtually on its website and it has promised to post more details on its live stream as it’s also keep up another Samsung trend of letting customers reserve its next flagship before been officially announced.
Also, Samsung says it will offer increased trade-in credit and 12 months of its Care+ at a discount rate for early reservations.
According to the images that were leaked by Evan Blass, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 looks very similar to the current iteration of the folding phone. The largest upgrade will be compatible with Samsung’s Pen stylus as Samsung itself has been telegraphing that it would add stylus support to the Fold line for a very long time now.
Meanwhile, the biggest update for Galaxy Z Flip 3, maybe on the outside, where Samsung will replace a very tiny screen with a slightly larger but still fairly small screen.
Samsung has done a better job with durability on its folding devices since it switched over to using “Ultra-thin glass” under a plastic sheet for these displays. However, the screens are still much more fragile than regular smartphone screens. If Samsung is intending to encourage users to poke at the Z Fold 3’s screen with a plastic stick, that folding screen will need to become more reliable.
Though it’s not likely to get top billing, the new Galaxy smartwatches are likely to be a bigger shift than the iterative updates to the folding phones. That’s because it’ll be the first Samsung smartwatch to run Google’s Wear operating system in over half a decade. Samsung had been using its Tizen-based OS on smartwatches, which had benefits over Google’s Wear OS but did not have an app library worth using. Now that the two operating systems are combined, this upcoming Samsung watch will be the first real look at what the new Wear operating system works.
However, customers are expecting both a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 with a rotating bezel and a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4 which will be announced, both in multiple colors.
Also, It is always possible there will be more on tap — Samsung’s Galaxy Buds lineup could also be extraordinary for a new model as customers will find out on August 11th when Samsung kicks off its Livestream.
