Today there is another Galaxy Unpacked event from Samsung. You can be at this launch event and we’ll tell you how to do it. What we will see is still unclear – but we will try to shed some light on this in this post.
- “Galaxy Unpacked Part 2” starts today at 4 pm German time
- We may see the Samsung Foldables in new colors
- Completely revised Samsung apps such as Samsung Health or SmartThings could also be shown
Yes, Samsung makes it exciting! The “Galaxy Unpacked Part 2” will take place today at 4 pm, about two months after the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 were pulled out of the hat at the last Unpacked event in August. We can only guess what we see today – but at least we already know how to be there live.
This is how you can follow the unpacked Part 2
I already mentioned it: At 4 p.m. our time, the fun starts today and, as always, we can be there via Livestream. As usual, you can follow the event on Samsung’s YouTube channel. Alternatively, it also works if you go to the Samsung site. As soon as we have a direct YouTube link to the stream, we will include it here for you. Until then, you can watch the first cryptic teaser video and ponder what Samsung is trying to tell us:
What do we get to see on the Galaxy Unpacked Part 2?
So we know when to start and where to watch. Now we just want to know what to expect. We had long hoped for a Galaxy S21 FE, even if there were clear signs weeks ago that this model would be completely put on hold.
Opinions still differ at the moment. Some hope that we will actually get it presented today, the other group is currently assuming that it could be at the beginning of 2022. But who knows: Maybe it will at least be teased at the event.
But what else is there to present if the S21 FE isn’t at the start? We recommend taking a look at the second teaser video from Samsung. The title “Get ready to unfold something unmistakably you” build a bridge to the Samsung foldable and in the video, a few CGI colleagues play around with a color palette. So are we really only seeing a Galaxy Z Fold 3 and a Galaxy Z Flip 3 in new colors? From 4 p.m. we are smarter.
In addition, we should probably see Samsung’s stock apps in a new guise. A fresh “Material You” wind is blowing through Samsung’s headquarters and ensures that everything shines in the “Android 12” shine. Camila only introduced to you days ago to what One UI 4.0 looks like with Android 12. Now we see (in the first clip above) various app logos such as that of the smart home control center “SmartThings” or the fitness and health platform Samsung Health.
It is therefore conceivable that a focus of the presentation could be on these apps, which are visually and functionally on a new level. But you can already see that everything is still very speculative here. A Galaxy Tab S8 will also tend to be available in the new year, but rumors recently spoke of a Samsung projector.
The difficult chip situation also makes life difficult for Samsung and so I fear that the Koreans will focus on the new flagships for the Galaxy S22. That would actually make things thin for today’s presentation when it comes to new hardware.
At the moment, however, I cannot imagine that Samsung will run an entire event with app updates and familiar devices in new colors, so there may still be some hope for new devices. A few more hours and we’ll know! But you can already tell us what you are hoping for from today’s Galaxy Unpacked Part 2 – write us in the comments!
