What just happened? Apple and Google won’t be the only tech giants to introduce a new product next week. Earlier today, Samsung announced plans to host a second Galaxy Unpacked event scheduled for October 19. But what can we expect?
Samsung hosted its first Galaxy Unpacked event of the season in August, where the company announced the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, new Galaxy Watch4 models, and Galaxy Buds2.
The South Korean tech titan hasn’t provided much information on what viewers can expect next week, only that we’ll see how Samsung is “opening up new experiences for self-expression through technology”.
With the Galaxy Note series seemingly discontinued, Samsung could take advantage of the event to present a more affordable version of the Galaxy S21 called the S21 FE. Others believe Sammy could focus on software and services during the event, an area the company would have been interested in exploring further.
All we know for sure at this point is that Unpacked Part 2 will be streaming on Samsung’s YouTube channel from 10 a.m. until Easter on October 20.
It’s going to be a busy week in the tech world next week. Apple has scheduled its next event for October 18, where most expected new M1X-powered Macs to crash. A day later, Google will host its Pixel 6 hardware event where we will finally have the missing details on the company’s next smartphone. So of course the Samsung event takes place the next day.
