Samsung usually holds an UNPACKED event in the first half of August to show off its new foldable phones and accessories like the Galaxy Watch.
Samsung prepares the ammunition for the second part of the year, and the following announcements will focus on the renewal of several products: the folding Z Fold, the “toad” version Z Flip and the Galaxy Watch. Rumors have been swirling around these devices for months, but those rumors could soon die down: It looks like there’s a date for UNPACKED 2022.
It has been the efficient “filter” Evan Blass who has revealed the possible launch date of the Z Foild4, Z Flip4 and Galaxy Watch 5: August 10, the same day the previous generation of devices was announced in 2021.

This data coincides with the forecast of Jon Prosser at the beginning of June, who also pointed out that Samsung was going to hold its classic presentation event on August 10.
Samsung has not confirmed the date of this presentation event, nor the modality. However, it coincides with the schedule of all the brand’s announcements for the second half of the year; which, for years, was the star moment for the appearance of the Note line and, since 2021, of the company’s flexible screen smartphone.
Samsung’s UNPACKED is the name that identifies the brand’s announcements throughout the year, although the name AWESOME is also designated for the A-series of mid-range phones. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UNPACKED events had to be broadcast remotely in 2020.
The last UNPACKED event held by Samsung in person was held in San Francisco for the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S20 generation and the original Galaxy Z Flip.
There are usually two UNPACKED events a year. The first is held between February and March for the arrival of the S series – like the recent S22 -, while in August the strategy was changed to announce folding phones, replacing the canceled Note series.
Samsung Galaxy UNPACKED 2022: what will be presented
Rumors point to the renewed edition of Samsung’s folding phones: the Z Flip 4 and the Z Fold 4. In addition, two versions of smart watches are expected: the Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro.
Regarding audio, it is likely that we will have a new generation of Galaxy Buds Pro. In the last UINPACKED, carried out on February 9, no new versions of Galaxy Buds were announced. Currently, Samsung offers up to three different editions: the Buds Live, the Galaxy Buds 2 and the “flagship” model Galaxy Buds Pro.
