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 referred to as “Galaxy Unpacked Half 2,” which is probably a sign that slightly than all new Galaxy telephones, we could also be seeing iterations on present ones.
With Samsung’s announcement, we’ll now have an Apple event on Monday (the place we expect 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 asserting the occasion hints at some type of personalization for Galaxy units: “Our customers are multifaceted and reside life in so many colourful, attention-grabbing, and distinctive methods. As such, the expertise they use day-after-day ought to mirror 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 would imply something, nevertheless it does appear to trace at new colours of the Galaxy telephones or perhaps even a full-on customization possibility. I may think about constructing a Z Flip 3 with my alternative of colours on both sides of the fold, for instance, and the teaser picture might trace at simply that. With the Z Fold 2, Samsung provided clients the choice to decide on their very own accent shade for the hinge, although that possibility went away on the Z Fold 3 (so far, anyway).
After all, no customization program has come close to the original Moto X, which let folks selected any variety of completely different shade choices and even supplies for his or her cellphone — together with bamboo. It appears unlikely that Samsung can be keen 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 possible primarily as a result of the S21 FE is at present in a type of limbo the place it’s both been delayed or cancelled due to the chip scarcity. Sammobile reports that Samsung is still considering a January launch for the S21 FE.
No matter what Samsung broadcasts on Wednesday the twentieth, it’ll 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 yr occasion referred to as On The Verge on Friday and Saturday. If you happen to’re in New York Metropolis, tickets can be found at a discount with code $99NOW right here. This leaves Thursday the twenty first open for an additional tech firm to announce one thing. Has anyone heard from OnePlus these days?
