samsung is hosting its latest edition of the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 10, and all eyes will be glued to the screen to see the new foldable devices from the company. Samsung is hosting the event virtually, so everyone gets a chance to see the new products, and probably a few more to be added into the mix.
The live stream of the event starts at 6:30 PM IST and you can head over to Samsung’s YouTube channel to watch the event. So, what do we expect to see from the new foldable products, and what else Samsung can show us at the event? Here’s what we know so far.
What to expect from Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event
As mentioned above, Samsung is rumored to bring Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldable phones at the event today. Talking about the galaxy Z Flip 4, the handset is said to come powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 octa-core processor. It is speculated that Samsung may improve the battery life of the device, as the old-generation Galaxy Flip 3 worked efficiently but had some issues with the battery.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
Samsung's official teaser confirms that a Galaxy Z Flip phone, likely to be called Galaxy Z Flip 4, is coming. Official details remain unclear, though the phone has been a part of leaks for a while. The company may first improve its battery life, as the old-gen Galaxy Z Flip 3 worked smoothly, but the battery was a big issue. We will likely see the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC powering the device.
Design-wise, the Z Flip 4 will feature the same clamshell-folding mechanism with improvements in the hinge mechanism. It may get a 12-megapixel primary camera outside alongside a secondary sensor. It will be interesting to see if the phone gets an under-display selfie camera and support for the SPen stylus.

Official trailer hints that there might not have any major changes in the design aspect. However, leaks suggest some tangible upgrades down the line. There is going to be likely a faster processor Snapdragon 8 + Gen 1. The outer Camera will be 10mp. Though battery size is expected at 4400 mAh, which is less in comparison to other versions.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Series
Samsung is also expected to add the new Galaxy Watch 5 to its lineup at the Unpacked event. The new Galaxy Watch 5 is likely to use the new version of WearOS that has been jointly designed with Google. Galaxy Watch 5 could have two variants, which include the Active and probably a new Pro model.
Reports suggest Samsung is improving the health features of its new smartwatch, but the design is not expected to see an overhaul this year. WearOS could also help improve the battery life of the new Galaxy smartwatch. Galaxy Watch 5 will go up against the Apple Watch Series 8 which should be launching next month.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2nd Gen
Samsung will look to improve its audio quotient with the new-gen Galaxy Buds Pro which could be called anything. The active noise cancellation has to be top-notch, and so should the audio quality. For premium audio gear, Samsung needs to justify bringing this product with a better design and maybe improved battery life as well. Yes, all these ingredients will make it pricier but that’s the point of a successor, right?
