Samsung is just months away from its next Unpacked event, where it will announce the previously teased Galaxy Ring alongside the next Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip phones. The event, which could have the most number of devices launching at one Samsung event, is set a couple weeks ahead of last year’s event.

According to SamMobile, the second Galaxy Unpacked gala for 2024 is set to take place on July 10. While last year’s event for foldables took place at Samsung’s headquarters in Seoul, South Korea, Samsung is now moving to Paris to unveil the new devices. An official confirmation from Samsung is still to come.

Notably, the event is scheduled on the sidelines of the 2024 Paris Olympics, which are set to commence a couple of weeks later. The star of the event, the new Samsung smart ring, could, therefore, be a symbolic gesture for Samsung to show its commitment to health and fitness at one of the world’s biggest sporting events. Samsung is also one of the major sponsors of the 2024 Paris Olympics.

In addition to the Galaxy Ring, Samsung is set to officially unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 phones. This is also the first time Samsung is expected to announce an “Ultra” variant of the Z Fold 6. Unlike the other two models that have leaked extensively, details about the Ultra are limited. Meanwhile, the regular Z Fold 6 is expected to be thinner and lighter than the previous generations. The Z Flip 6, having received a major design change in the form of the larger outer display last year, will likely miss out on any major aesthetic updates this year.

Aside from the phones, Samsung will also launch the Galaxy Watch 7 series, which is rumored to include an “Ultra” variant with a larger battery. Samsung took this approach with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, but discontinued it the following year in favor of the Classic variant.

Whether the lineup includes both Classic and Ultra models this year is something we will find out later. Samsung is also rumored to introduce a cheaper FE version of the Galaxy Watch with hardware carried over from older generations, such as the Watch 4.

In the weeks to come, we expect more leaks to pour in with new details about all the devices that Samsung will launch at the event on July 10.

Samsung’s next folding phone could be cheaper than we thought

It increasingly seems likely that Samsung’s foldable phone strategy is aiming for a lower price bracket. Right now, a taste of Galaxy foldables will cost you a minimum of $1,000. However, an upcoming entry-level foldable phone might bring that barrier down to just $800.

Does the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 work with the iPhone?

Apps page on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6.

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 is a popular choice for a smart watch, available in both regular and classic forms. The bright, vibrant display and improved battery life to keep going all day offer an enticing option, even making for a tempting upgrade from the Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Watch 5.

However, before you buy a smart watch there’s always the sticky question of phone operating system compatibility. To be useful, you need to link your smart watch to your smart phone — but not every option for smart watch software plays nice with every phone OS. Samsung’s smart watch options work happily with Android devices, but if you’re hoping to use a newer Samsung smart watch with your iPhone then you’ll run into some problems. Essentially, the newer versions of the Galaxy Watch aren’t compatible with iOS, so they’re not going to work with your iPhone.

We all love getting a big software update on our phones, and if you bought a Samsung phone within the last year or so, you should have one coming your way very soon.

Last month, Samsung announced plans to release its One UI 6.1 update — which includes its new Galaxy AI features — to a variety of its 2023 smartphones. Samsung said the update was coming in March, but we’re close to halfway through the month, and there had been no update on One UI 6.1 since. Thankfully, it looks like the update is still on track for a timely release.
