This Wednesday (21) the Samsung confirmed the rumors: officially announced that their next Galaxy Unpacked event will be on August 11th at 10:XNUMX am Eastern Time USA (11:00 am Brasília time). The event will be broadcast live, again online, on Samsung's website.
The announcement of upcoming smartphone versions Galaxy z fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 – which have already leaked a bit – is the most anticipated. In fact, the anticipation generated by the leaks didn't bother Samsung, as a quick glance at its invitation already reveals the outline of both devices.
What else to expect from Galaxy Unpacked
New Galaxy smartwatches, which will be the first to use the new combined Wear platform announced on Google I/O earlier this year, are also being highly anticipated.
Until then, Samsung had been using its own Tizen-based operating system in its watches, which had advantages over Google's Wear OS, but didn't have a library of apps worth using.
One brand trend is maintained: allowing customers to “book their next flagship” before it's even officially announced. Samsung says it will offer “higher exchange credit and 12 months of discounted Samsung Care +” for early bookings.

- Samsung launches new version of “The Wall”, its thousand-inch display
- Exynos W920, Samsung's next chipset, will be unveiled in the Galaxy Watch 4 series
According to the leaked screenshots by Evan Blass, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 looks a lot like the current version of the folding phone. The most striking update seems to be compatibility with Samsung's S Pen pen. Samsung itself has long said that it would add support for the accessory to the Fold lineup.
As for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the biggest update may be abroad, where Samsung decided to replace the screen with a slightly larger one – but still quite small.
Ultra-thin glass increases the durability of Samsung folding devices
Durability has been a major concern of the manufacturer in its folding devices since it started using “ultra-thin glass” under a plastic sheet for these monitors.
However, the screens are still much more fragile than traditional smartphones. According to Dieter Bohn, in an article published by The Verge website, "if Samsung is to encourage users to 'poke' the Z Fold 3's screen with a plastic stick, this folding screen will need to become more durable."
Also according to Bohn, "we're expecting a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 with a swivel bezel and a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4 without ad, both in various colors."
It is always possible that there will be even more news, such as a new model from the Galaxy Buds line. In a few weeks, we can be sure of that and know all the details of Samsung releases.
