Just a day after a leaked press invitation to the next Galaxy Unpacked made the rounds online, Samsung has confirmed its upcoming event through a cryptic tweet on the company’s official Twitter page.
(Update, August 13: After a busy week for us, we finally got to upload our hands-on video of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4!)
(Update, August 10: New Galaxy devices headlined by the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 have been launched! See Philippine pricing and availability here.)
The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2022 is set for August 10, corroborating an earlier report on the same date. The event will reportedly see the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4, but we’re also counting on other new devices — including the Galaxy Buds Pro 2, Galaxy Watch 5, and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro — to make their debut next month.
Based on rumors, both the Z Fold4 and Z Flip4 are expected to boast the same aesthetic as the previous Samsung foldables, except the next-gen models may have a less visible crease where their respective screens fold. Both phones could also arrive in never-before-seen color options, and the designs might be a little thinner and lighter this time around, which would be good news. Below is how they supposedly look.
Specs-wise, the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 are tipped to retain their 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED 2X displays and could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset. This would represent a huge upgrade over the Snapdragon 888 chip in last year’s pair of Samsung foldables.
Speaking of the previous-gen iterations, the Galaxy Z Fold3 was priced at P87,990 (about $1,567) and P95,990 ($1,710) in the Philippines for the 12GB/256GB and 12GB/512GB configurations, respectively. The Galaxy Z Flip3, meanwhile, sold for P56,990 ($1,015) for the lone 8GB/256GB variant at launch.
