Now we may know a lot of what’s coming at Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event thanks to a series of tweets from the well-known leak Evan Blass. It seems like the event could be big, as Blass tweeted a long thread with GIFs of two new Galaxy folders, a new Galaxy FE phone, two new Galaxy watches and even a set of new Galaxy Buds. He also says that the event will take place one month from now 11 August.
First up, collapsible. Blass has already leaked what appears to be official renderings of the rumored Galaxy Z Fold 3 (which can support the S Pen) and Galaxy Z Flip 3, but the new GIFs he shared provide look at both devices in all angles.
Here is Z Fold 3, which Blass shared GIFs in white, green and black:
The Blass thread also includes GIFs that appear to be the infamous Samsung Galaxy S21 FE in white, yellow-gray, purple and black. The phone, if released, is likely to be a mid-range version of the S21 and seems to take a lot of design inspiration from Samsung’s flagship (like how the S20 FE looked like the S20).
Whether or not this phone is actually in production has not been an open question; In June, in response to a report claiming Samsung had stopped production of the phone, Samsung said that “nothing has been determined regarding the alleged production suspension.” These GIFs from Blass can be a sign that the phone is a go.
But Blass not only shared GIFs of phones – he also tweeted GIFs of two new Samsung watches. A model seems to be consistent with rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, with what appears to be a rotating frame and two buttons on the right side. The watch, which Blass tweeted in white, black and gray, is also expected to run Google’s and Samsung’s new smartwatch platform.
The second watch shared by Blass seems to match rumors about the Galaxy Watch Active 4. This watch does not appear to have a rotating frame, and according to OnLeaks and GizNext, it can come in two different sizes: 44mm and 40mm. Blass shared GIFs of the watch in gray, dark green, white, peach and two tweets of a black watch (although I can not see the difference between them in addition to what is displayed on the screen).
Blass’ GIF thread also reveals three colors with unannounced Galaxy Buds that correspond to rumors about Galaxy Buds 2, which according to leaker Ice Universe will have active sound interruption. Blass’ GIF shows the buds and inside of the white case in gray, purple and white, matching the style of a leaked rendering shared by 91mobiles which showed combinations of green, black and white bud / inner case.
Finally, let’s talk quickly about that rumor day, August 11, which to me seems like the one you might want to circle in your calendar. When Samsung unveiled its smartwatch platform developed with Google in late June, it said it would be an unpacked event “later this summer”, so August 11 would fall into that timeline. And the company has been arranging summer packages in early August for a few years now, which means that August 11 would not be out of the ordinary pattern.
Since Samsung has not officially announced any of these products or the date of the event, there is always a chance that the Blass leak will not actually come out. But given Blass’ past history and the details of the GIFs he shared, it seems possible that he may have revealed some of the biggest news from Samsung’s next Unpacked event.
