Tomorrow, Samsung could unveil a first-of-its-kind Android Galaxy phone.
SAMSUNG will host a significant Unpacked event later tomorrow, where the company may reveal a first-of-its-kind smartphone.
Tomorrow, all eyes will be on Samsung as the Korean tech giant hosts another of its infamous Unpacked events. Things will begin at 3pm BST, but there have already been plenty of hints as to what might be revealed during the online showcase, with Samsung announcing back in June that a new Galaxy Watch would be released this summer, with the wearable set to be powered by a new operating system developed in collaboration with Google.
Along with the watch, it’s almost expected that we’ll see some new phones, which may include a function that hasn’t been seen before. Samsung shared a video with the tagline “Get ready to unfold” as a preview for the event, which is certainly a big clue that fans will get to see some new foldable gadgets. “Join Samsung Electronics this August 11 for a Galaxy Unpacked event to unveil the next chapter in mobile advancements designed to help you make the most of every moment, no matter where you are,” says an invitation to the event.
Phones that bend in half aren’t new, with Samsung first revealing the technology in 2019. However, if all of the rumors surrounding these gadgets are accurate, they might be the first to provide a more durable water-resistant design.
Most bendy devices have previously seemed flimsy, and owners would not have felt comfortable using them in a British downpour. Samsung’s first foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold, was even delayed after early reviews revealed the device was easily damaged.
All of that appears to be about to change, with SamMobile reporting that the upcoming Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 will be able to swim in the neighborhood pool.
A leaked promotional image also shows the future phones being hit with water, which supports the IPX classification.
If true, Samsung has done some excellent work here, and it might make these phones much more desirable.
A selfie camera that is now buried behind the display is another new feature that could be coming to the more pricey Z Fold 3.
This means it won’t happen again. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
