Samsung Unpacked 2021 Event
To highlight, many big changes happened to Samsung and its consumers this year. After the pandemic spread globally, its smartphone events and reveals had to be launched virtually. Even worse, consumers' interests on new smartphones greatly waned, especially for the premium series. Instead, users saved money for their personal necessities during the crisis.
Therefore, the smartphones and gadgets revealed in the Samsung Unpacked are expected to be a lot more affordable to attract back their customers.
Samsung's biggest highlight for this event will be foldable technology. This features the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip.
What to Expect on Samsung Unpacked 2021 Livestream
Cnet listed out a bunch of exciting gadgets that might get mentioned during the event
Galaxy Z Fold is a smartphone designed to expand outward, extending the smartphone display to resemble a tablet-sized screen. Note, however, that its predecessor Z Fold 2, cost $2,000. Because of its expensive price, the smartphone was barely sold to mainstream consumers. The incoming Z Fold 3 is expected to cost $1,800, making it a cheaper alternative to the market.
Galaxy Z Flip, in comparison, features a clamshell design, marketed as one of the best small-smartphone choices for today's market. Folding the smartphone will automatically reduce it to half its size, similar to the old flip phone designs. The last Z flip was priced at $1,380, so this incoming Z Flip 3 is estimated at $1,200.
As previously mentioned, Samsung devices like Galaxy Watch 4 might be released in Unpacked 2021. Earlier reports for the device teased three colors: black, gray, and white. Exclusive stainless-steel models for Galaxy Watch 4 were also mentioned. Its price is predicted to be at $399.
Lastly, the Galaxy Buds 2 might also be revealed in the event. Exciting new features for these wireless earphones are active noise cancellation, improved command controls, and longer battery life. The Galaxy Buds 2 might come in five colors: black, grey/green, white, yellow, or purple. Price is rumored to be $179.
