Samsung has simply despatched out invites for an occasion it’s holding on-line on Wednesday, October twentieth at 7AM PT / 10AM ET. It’s known as “Galaxy Unpacked Half 2,” which is presumably a sign that relatively than all new Galaxy telephones, we could also be seeing iterations on present ones.
With Samsung’s announcement, we’ll now have an Apple occasion on Monday (the place we predict new MacBook Execs), Google’s Pixel 6 launch on Tuesday, and now Samsung’s apparently smaller occasion on Wednesday.
Along with the invite’s picture, Samsung’s newsroom publish saying the occasion hints at some form of personalization for Galaxy gadgets: “Our customers are multifaceted and dwell life in so many colourful, fascinating, and distinctive methods. As such, the expertise they use on daily basis ought to replicate their individuality. Be a part of Galaxy Unpacked Half 2 on October 20 to see how Samsung is opening up new experiences for self-expression by means of expertise.”
That might imply something, but it surely does appear to trace at new colours of the Galaxy telephones or perhaps even a full-on customization choice. I may think about constructing a Z Flip 3 with my selection of colours on both sides of the fold, for instance, and the teaser picture could trace at simply that. With the Z Fold 2, Samsung provided prospects the choice to decide on their very own accent colour for the hinge, although that choice went away on the Z Fold 3 (up to now, anyway).
After all, no customization program has come near the unique Moto X, which let folks selected any variety of completely different colour choices and even supplies for his or her telephone — together with bamboo. It appears unlikely that Samsung shall be prepared to go that far.
What appears much more unlikely is the Galaxy S21 FE, a lower-cost “fan version” of the Galaxy S21 that’s been kicking across the rumor mill for some time now. It’s much less doubtless primarily as a result of the S21 FE is at present in a form of limbo the place it’s both been delayed or cancelled due to the chip scarcity. Sammobile reviews that Samsung continues to be contemplating a January launch for the S21 FE.
No matter what Samsung proclaims on Wednesday the twentieth, it’s going to have a tough time getting consideration after all of the Sturm (Apple) and Drang (Google) the earlier two days. Although maybe selecting Wednesday is Samsung’s strategic try to wrest some curiosity away from the Pixel 6.
Talking of it being a busy week, we even have The Verge’s 10 12 months occasion known as On The Verge on Friday and Saturday. In the event you’re in New York Metropolis, tickets can be found at a reduction with code $99NOW proper right here. This leaves Thursday the twenty first open for an additional tech firm to announce one thing. Has anyone heard from OnePlus currently?
