Apple isn’t the only cell phone manufacturer working on new phones and accessories for the fall. Samsung has a few tricks up its sleeve that it plans to unveil early next month.
Ahead of its Galaxy Unpacked event, the company released a short teaser video showcasing its upcoming smartphones and accessories.
The 30-second trailer is shot mostly in silhouettes, leaving a lot to the imagination.
From what was revealed, Samsung may be launching several smartphones along with a new smartwatch and a refreshed version of the Galaxy Buds.
There also was a tablet in the video and either a new Galaxy Fold or two phones positioned back to back.
Circulating rumors suggest Samsung is ready to release a Galaxy Fold 2 or the Galaxy Z Fold 2. These rumored devices build upon the innovative folding design of the original Galaxy Fold.
The next-generation version is rumored to include a glass screen instead of the plastic used in the first version, a larger internal display, and support for Samsung’s S Pen.
Samsung also is rumored to be working on a new Note model, which bridges the gap between a tablet and a smartphone.
The new Note could include a triple camera module and expanded functionality for the S Pen.
One other product that made its appearance in the teaser video might be the Galaxy Buds Live, the successor for the Galaxy Buds. This new Live model is rumored to have touch controls and a companion app used to set the equalizer and other audio settings. The kidney-shaped earbuds are expected to go on sale for $169.
Hardware isn’t the only topic Samsung will present during its Unpacked event. The Korean company also may reveal more details about its version of the Apple Card.
The company reportedly has been quiet about the Apple Card competitor after revealing it earlier this May. This upcoming press event gives Samsung the perfect opportunity to shed some light on this new service.
All this and more are expected to be unveiled at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event which will be held on August 5th at Samsung Digital City.
