Samsung Confirms Launch of Five Devices at Its August 5th Unpacked Event
Jul 22 2020
Why it matters:Samsung remains the main rival to Apple in the high end of the mobile market, but the pandemic may leave fewer people with either the budget or the appetite for a fancy new mobile device.
When August 5 rolls around, Samsung won't hold back on product announcements, even if their Unpacked event is an online-only thing and money in the wallets of everyone is tighter than ever. Coming to the display, the Samsung Galaxy M31s will feature a 1,080 x 2,400 pixel resolution display, which we already know is going to be an Infinity-O Super AMOLED panel with a centrally-aligned punch-hole selfie snapper. We've seen rumors and reports about the specifications and features of the Z Fold 2, but a new leak from Ishan Agarwal appears to showcase the design. The tipster, however, has also cautioned about the "legitimacy" of the render. This would mean a healthy increase for the compact 4.6 inch front display of the original, but a slight decrease from 7.3 inches for the internal screen, once folded open.
Although the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Z Fold 2 have never exactly been the world's best-kept secrets, today is the very first time we're seeing a reliable source tackle the retail pricing matter both in detail and with specificity. That said, recent rumors have suggested Samsung might not be ready to talk about the Z Fold 2 quite yet, so one of the five devices Roh is referring to in his blog post could instead be the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
In an editorial posted on the company's website on Monday, Roh Tae-moon, who heads Samsung's mobile communications business, said the South Korean tech giant will introduce five new devices at the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. He now resides in NY writing for BGR.
