Samsung Releases Teaser for Galaxy Unpacked Event on August 5

by

Samsung is set to hold a virtual "Unpacked" event next week, on Wednesday, August 5. To build excitement for the event, Samsung today released a teaser video showcasing silhouettes of the products it will reveal next week (via Engadget).

The products in question appear to be new Samsung smartphones, like the Galaxy Note 20, a new tablet and stylus, new Galaxy Buds, and a new smartwatch. Samsung typically unveils new products at events in August, last year announcing the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Home Speaker, and Wireless Charger Duo.

Of the new 2020 products that could be announced, one that has been seen in leaks is the Galaxy Buds Live. This accessory is a pair of Bluetooth in-ear headphones with noise cancellation support and a 4.5 hour battery life. The headphones are believed to compete with the AirPods Pro, although they undercut Apple's price tag at $169.

In another leak, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is said to include a Snapdragon 865 processor, an 11-inch LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 8,000 mAh battery. There will be an 8-megapixel front facing camera and 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and 128GB of expandable storage.

You can also find complete 360-degree views of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 online, thanks to numerous leaks. If you're interested to watch the official unveiling of the products, Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event will be live streamed on the company's website at 10 a.m. ET.

Love them or hate them, they are one of if not the largest of Apple's direct competitors. Competition breeds innovation.

I actually moved to the Galaxy S10 last April and I've really enjoyed it, something I couldn't say for my previous Android phones when coming from iOS - I'd somehow always find my way back to an iPhone but so far - I've been pretty happy with it. Really have no complaints for once! (Ok, Bixby is pretty hit or miss but barring that).

I purchased the Galaxy Buds for $99 and they've been stellar on my phone and work PC and I use them for Teams calls all day long.

Apple probably faces more competition from their older iPhones than samsung phones.

Haters are going to hate, but this looks really cool. I can’t wait to see what they unveil.

Samsung is a great technological powerhouse, they have had deep lows and I do believe they copy others frequently (just like Apple does) but they can make great products as well.

Let us not forget Samsung is integral to Apple’s supply chain, they make or have made for them in the past: CPU, Storage, Display, Batteries, Camera sensors... pretty much what makes a Smartphone.

Man I hate Bixby, I wish Samsung just got rid of it.

Replace the Samsung logos with Apple logos and it could have easily been an Apple ad. Same modern upbeat pop beat, flashy one word lines, assembly lines, vibrant colors...
