According to the official invitation to Samsung Unpacked in July, the company plans to introduce the next phase of Galaxy AI. This means that many of the artificial intelligence features showcased earlier this year with the Galaxy S24 are likely to be integrated into the new Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6.

Regarding the devices themselves, Samsung will continue the trend of its previous foldable devices. The new models will bring minor technical updates compared to those from 2023, which still hold significant merit.

The Galaxy Z Fold 6 is expected to debut at Samsung Unpacked in July with a 6.3-inch external screen and a 7.6-inch internal screen. It will feature an optimized Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, paired with 12 GB of RAM and storage options of 256 GB, 512 GB, or 1 TB.

In terms of cameras, the rear module will house a 50 MP main sensor, a 12 MP ultrawide, and a 10 MP telephoto with 3x optical and 30x digital zoom. A 10 MP front camera will be available, with an additional 4 MP sensor under the internal screen. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 will also come equipped with a 4,400 mAh battery.

Turning to the Galaxy Z Flip 6, it will feature a 6.7-inch internal screen and a 3.4-inch exterior panel. Storage options will be 256 GB or 512 GB, with RAM details expected to be confirmed during Samsung Unpacked. It will share the same processor as the Z Fold 6, and its rear cameras will include a 50 MP main sensor and a 12 MP ultrawide. The internal selfie camera will be 10 MP. Leaks suggest a 4,000 mAh battery for the Galaxy Z Flip 6.

An unpleasant revelation from Samsung Unpacked regarding these devices will be their prices. The Galaxy Z Flip 6 is slated to start at $1,099.99, while the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will begin at $1,899.99.

With the recent announcement of the Galaxy Watch FE, July’s Samsung Unpacked event will shine the spotlight on two other smartwatches: the Galaxy Watch 7 and the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra. The latter is expected to garner the most attention due to its distinctive design and its aim to compete directly with the Apple Watch Ultra.

As leaked several weeks ago, the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra is rumored to feature a 3-nanometer Exynos chip and come with 32 GB of storage. Its 47-millimeter case will be crafted from grade 4 titanium, and its screen, protected by sapphire glass, will offer a peak brightness of 3,000 nits. It will boast IP68 certification and water resistance up to 10 atmospheres. The watch will be equipped with a 590 mAh battery and dual-frequency GPS (L1 + L5) for precise outdoor tracking.

The Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra will support Bluetooth and LTE connectivity and feature three physical buttons for easy control. It will be available in three colors. Details regarding its price are yet to be confirmed, so we’ll have to wait until Samsung Unpacked for that information.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch 7 will be offered in two sizes: 40 and 44 millimeters. It will have a case made of aluminum alloy with sapphire glass protection for the screen, offering a maximum brightness of 2,000 nits according to leaked specifications. It will also come with 32 GB of storage. Like the Ultra model, the standard version of the smartwatch will feature dual-frequency GPS but will have only two physical buttons.

The Galaxy Watch 7 will come in variants with Bluetooth-only or Bluetooth+LTE connectivity options. Regarding battery capacity, it will have a 300 mAh battery for the 40-millimeter variant and a 425 mAh battery for the 44-millimeter variant. As with the pricing of the Ultra model, details on prices for the Galaxy Watch 7 are expected to be revealed at Samsung Unpacked.

After a longtime, Samsung plans to update its lineup of true wireless headphones at the July 10 Unpacked event. This update will include the Galaxy Buds 3 and Galaxy Buds 3 Pro.

Both models will come with impressive features such as active noise cancellation, support for 360 Audio, ultra-high-quality sound (24-bit/96 kHz), IP57 certification, Bluetooth 5.4, and compatibility with SmartThings Find.

The Galaxy Buds 3 Pro will offer additional features like adaptive noise cancellation and a feature called Blade Lights. Speculation suggests Blade Lights could involve LED lights on the headphones, though its exact purpose remains unclear.

One significant change for the Galaxy Buds 3 and Galaxy Buds 3 Pro is their redesigned appearance compared to their predecessors. Unlike previous Samsung headphones, which typically favored a “bean” shape, the new models will adopt a design more reminiscent of AirPods. This shift in design has been observed in the diagnostic section of Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable app.

Galaxy Ring Δ

Lastly, the upcoming Samsung Unpacked will mark the official launch of the Galaxy Ring. This device is expected to be the highlight of the event. Samsung initially showcased prototypes of the ring at MWC last February, but now we will finally learn about its definitive features.

The Galaxy Ring has garnered attention recently, particularly after Samsung filed a preemptive lawsuit against Oura. This legal action aimed to assure that their ring does not violate any patents held by Oura, a company known for accusing competitors of intellectual property infringement to delay product launches.

Samsung previously announced that the Galaxy Ring will debut in August, at least in the United States. Rumors suggest it could be priced between $300 and $350. Additionally, some of its features might require a monthly subscription. However, all uncertainties surrounding this wearable will be clarified at the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event.

How to follow the next Samsung Unpacked Δ

As mentioned earlier, the new Samsung Unpacked will be held on July 10 in Paris. The event will be streamed live on Samsung’s official website and YouTube channel. It is scheduled to begin at 9:00 AM (GMT-4).
