Thanks to a series of tweets from prominent leaker Evan Blass, we now know a lot more about Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event. The event could be a big one, as Blass tweeted a long thread with GIFs of two new Galaxy foldables, a new Galaxy FE phone, two new Galaxy Watches, and even a new set of Galaxy Buds. He said that there was an event going on. A month later, August 11th.
First, it is foldable. Blass has already leaked what appears to be official renders of the rumored Galaxy Z Fold 3 (with S Pen stylus support) and Galaxy Z Flip 3, but the new GIF he shared shows both devices from all angles.
Blass’ thread also includes a GIF of the rumored Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. White, yellow gray, purple, And black. When this phone launches, it will most likely be a mid-range version of the S21, and it seems to get a lot of design inspiration from Samsung’s flagships, such as how the S20 FE looks like the S20.
Whether this phone is actually in production was an open question. In response to the report that Samsung Electronics had stopped production in June, Samsung Electronics said, “No decision has been made regarding the suspicion of production suspension.” This GIF from Blass could be a sign that the phone is gone.
However, Blass not only shared GIFs from his phone, he also tweeted GIFs from two new Samsung watches. One model seems to closely match the rumors of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which appears to have a rotating bezel and two buttons on the right. Watch Blass tweeted White, black, And grey, will also operate new smartwatch platforms from Google and Samsung.
The other watch Blass shared seems to match the rumors about the Galaxy Watch Active 4. This watch does not seem to have a rotating bezel. OnLeaks and Giznext, available in two sizes: 44mm and 40mm. Blass shared a GIF of the watch. grey, dark green, White, peach, and two tweets black watch (Although I can’t tell the difference other than what’s shown on the screen).
Blass’ GIF thread also shows three different colors of the unannounced Galaxy Buds, which coincide with rumors about the Galaxy Buds 2. Cancel notifications is enabled. Blass’ GIF shows the buds and white case interior in gray, purple, and white, matching the leaked rendering style he shared. 91 mobile Green, Black and White Bird/Inner Case Combo was shown.
Finally, let’s talk briefly about August 11, the date we want to circle on our calendar. When Samsung unveiled its smartwatch platform it developed with Google at the end of June, it said there would be an Unpacked event “at the end of this summer”, so August 11 falls on that timeline. And the company has been hosting the Summer Unpacked event in early August for several years now, which means August 11 won’t deviate from its usual pattern.
Samsung hasn’t officially announced any of these products or event dates, so there’s always a chance that what Blass leaks won’t actually come out. But given Blass’ past performance and the details of the GIF he shared, it looks like he’s likely revealed some of the biggest news at Samsung’s next Unpacked event.
