The stars of Samsung’s show are undoubtedly the new foldables, namely Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. While these devices are projected to offer incremental upgrades, the lion’s share of enhancements is directed toward the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The most significant upgrade for the Flip 5 is a substantially larger cover display compared to its predecessors, potentially supporting a full keyboard and more functional widgets. However, it remains uncertain whether full apps will be supported.

Both gadgets will also feature enhancements like Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, an improved hinge that allows complete closure without leaving a gap, and an array of new colors and cases.

Another certainty at this week’s event includes Samsung’s latest timepieces – Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch Classic.

The standard Watch version features several notable updates, including a W930 chipset for faster performance and slimmer bezels allowing room for a larger display. RAM gets bumped from previous models’1.5 GB to now having up to 2 GB.

In addition to these upgrades, the Galaxy Watch Classic revives its physical rotating bezel making it stand out from its standard counterpart.

There’s also speculation about these watches debuting Wear OS4, which brings multiple benefits, including connecting to new phones without needing a reset.

The primary upgrade here is Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, among other smaller additions such as eSIM support and AMOLED on the smallest model.

Potential Surprises?

While core launches form the crux of Unpacked events, there could always be surprises in store.

Possible unveilings might include Samsung SmartTag2 or Samsung’s own mixed-reality headset based on Android’s newer version.

Another potential surprise could be additions to Samsung’s “Fan Edition” lineups – specifically upcoming releases for Galaxy Tab S9 FE and Galaxy S23 FE.

However exciting these speculations may sound, they remain just that until confirmed at Samsung Unpacked.
