Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked is among the most anticipated events of the year. The rumors speak of two foldable and three accessories, and also the date to be circled in red.
Not on 3 and not even on August 27, the two dates indicated in recent times by the rumors, should come to light the new range of foldable Samsung Galaxy. Although in this sense were exposed two voices of weight as Max Weinbach in the first case and Jon Prosser in the second, a new rumor coming from South Korea introduces a third reference period to which pay attention.
Samsung has the habit of communicating in advance the launch date of high-end products such as Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, but rumors and indiscretions always try, and not only in the case of Samsung, to anticipate the moves of companies, sometimes succeeding other times with revised results. The indiscretion coming from South Korea is said to be convinced that during the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021 there will be not only the officiality for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, but also for three additional devices: Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4. Five devices in total, two high-end smartphones and three wearables, for an event that promises to be very interesting. But when will it be held?
The date they're betting on in Korea
Yonhap News, the Korean publication said to be informed about Samsung's presentation, said that Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be made official in the second half of the first or second week of August.
In Yonhap they assumed that almost all Samsung Galaxy Unpacked events happen on Fridays, so it's yes likely that the announcement will happen in the first week of August, but it's more likely that they will opt for a Friday at Samsung. If so, the "running" dates would be two: August 6 or 13, 2021.
There would instead be only one date - always according to Yonhap, but Jon Prosser also thinks the same way - for the actual launch of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3: the first customers should not receive one of the new Korean foldables before August 27, 2021, when Samsung would have planned the first deliveries at a time of retailers and end customers.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE delayed
Another highly anticipated product from Samsung is Galaxy S21 FE, which moreover has been talked about quite a bit in recent weeks. According to the latest information, the cheapest variant of the top of the range of Seoul will arrive later than you might think, due mainly to two factors.
The first is of a commercial nature. Samsung wants to have a period in which to focus marketing solely on two high-value products like Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, with no "distractions" for itself or its customers.
The second is independent of Samsung's will. The company would have found it difficult to find sufficient Snapdragon 888 chips for the realization of all units of Samsung Galaxy S21 FE scheduled, due to the shortage of chips that is mowing down the technological world.
So Samsung Galaxy S21 FE would have been postponed to autumn 2021, so not before the end of September.
The three accessories of Galaxy Unpacked
During the same event should also be presented Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch Active 4. On the true wireless earbuds are rumored to dispense with noise cancellation (ANC) for a lower price than before, while the two smartwatches should be among the first to benefit from the partnership with Google on Wear OS.
