New Report Confirms Samsung Unpacked Event in July

A new report suggests that Samsung will hold its annual Unpacked event in early to mid July to unveil its new foldable phones. The event is rumored to take place in Paris, aiming to target the European market before the start of the Paris Olympics.


Samsung Unpacked Event Details

According to sources close to SamMobile, Samsung is expected to host its annual Unpacked event in early July to announce its latest foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip6 and Z Fold6. A separate source from South Korea also supports this claim, stating that the event may be held in early to mid July.

Last year, the Unpacked event took place on July 26, but this year, it is expected to occur about two weeks earlier, potentially around July 12. Additionally, Paris has been rumored to be the chosen location for the event. Samsung wants to time its launch before the start of the Paris Olympics on July 26 in order to focus on the European market and fill the void left by Chinese smartphone makers.

It is worth noting that in past years, Samsung debuted its foldable phones outside of South Korea a couple of weeks after their initial release. With the earlier Unpacked event, there is speculation that there might be an earlier launch as well. Supply chain sources suggest that the final testing for the products will take place in April, potentially allowing for a domestic launch in South Korea, similar to last year.

No New Form Factors Expected

The report also states that there will not be any new foldable or rollable form factors from Samsung this year. However, the rumored Galaxy Ring has not been ruled out.

The release of the Galaxy Z Fold6 is highly anticipated as it is rumored to feature a major change in form factor. Some readers commented that they are interested in the upcoming device, but others highlighted the need to make a buying decision based on current technology availability.

While there are rumors that Samsung may be saving its efforts for the next iteration, the Fold7, supply chain sources suggest that the Fold6 will still be launched and should not be underestimated.
