Samsung has provided a clear solution to the unusual puzzle it delivered yesterday, confirming that the Galaxy Unpacked event will indeed take place on August 10. The image accompanying the teaser also confirms that the foldables will take center stage, with a Galaxy Z Flip-shaped device acting as a “greater than” symbol. The event kicks off at 9AM ET and will be streamed on Samsung.com.

If the phone in the invite image is actually the Z Flip 4, then the rumors that the device would come with minimal updates seem to be correct. It appears to have the same shape, dual rear camera setup and side-mounted power button/fingerprint scanner as the Flip 3. We’re also expecting an update to the Z Fold 3 on the 10th, and rumors suggest it has. perhaps a slightly different looking camera bump than its predecessor.
New Galaxy Watches are also expected, and Samsung’s pre-preorder promotion lists discounts for bundling Galaxy phone, watch and earbud combinations. That’s right – by simply giving Samsung your name and email address, US customers can earn the opportunity to to reserve a pre-order deal on whatever the company is announcing in August. If you’d rather know what Samsung has in store first, it seems like you’ll just have to tune in to the livestream in a few weeks.
