Samsung usually hosts two Unpacked events a year: one for its flagship S series phones and another for the Galaxy Z series. The company’s latest Galaxy foldable phones are likely to be the main attraction at the next event in July. The exact date of the Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event has yet to be confirmed by Samsung but based on historical release patterns, it’s safe to assume it will take place in mid-July.
Samsung Unpacked has been held in a number of major cities around the world including New York, London, and Barcelona but this will be the first time that it’s hosted in Seoul, South Korea. The country’s capital is known for its dynamic culture and innovation and Samsung says that hosting the event in Seoul “embodies the spirit of Unpacked by highlighting the next generation of mobile experiences.”
The last time that Samsung hosted an Unpacked event was in October and it introduced the Galaxy Tab S9, Watch6, and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro during the show. The Galaxy Fold and Flip 5 were expected to be the focus of this July’s event but based on leaks, we could see some other exciting gadgets announced as well.
In terms of the Galaxy Fold and Flip 5, we’re expecting to see a few big improvements over their predecessors. For starters, both devices are rumored to have bigger cover displays that will give them a leg up over competing models like the Pixel Fold and Moto Razr Ultra 40. We’re also expecting to see more durable materials for long-term use, better camera hardware, and faster processor chips.
