Samsung is building hype as we are going closer to Galaxy Unpacked event. With almost a week away from the said event, Samsung has now released a short video teaser on its YouTube channel, showcasing all those five devices that are about to launch. The teaser does not clearly show them but their silhouettes are enough to tell what's coming. You can tell Samsung is launching a new foldable smartphone, a tablet probably Galaxy Tab S7, a new smartwatch, new earbuds, and of course the showstopper Galaxy Note 20.

Samsung is prepping for its first-ever virtual Galaxy Unpacked event which is scheduled for August 5th. The giant has not explicitly mentioned the name of any of the products that it will bring to the event but following the trend, it is not hard to guess what it could be. The Galaxy Note 20 series may become the showstopper, but going by several leaks and now an official teaser as well, Samsung may launch a successor to the Galaxy Fold at the event as well.
But these are not just the two products that Samsung is aiming to launch. According to Samsung’s latest blog post, the company will launch not one but five products at the event. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics confirmed,
At this summer’s Galaxy Unpacked, we’ll be introducing five new power devices.
Sadly, Roh didn’t make a mention of any of these products but did say that these devices deliver the company’s vision. While we have kind of firm evidence on the existence of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Fold 2, nothing can be said about the remaining ones. Though referring to Roh’s other comments, it can be deduced that Galaxy Z Flip 5G is on the way as well. Roh made a couple of references to the foldable devices and 5G as well, confirming that more foldable phones with 5G connectivity will launch. This suggests the presence of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is inevitable.
Coming to the fourth product, it is expected that Samsung would launch the new version of the Galaxy Watch, probably the Galaxy Watch 3.
But about the fifth product that is in the pipeline?
Rumors believe the fifth product to be the new version of the Galaxy Buds, something from the premium tier segment that could compete directly with Apple’s AirPods Pro.
Well, we are still quite at a distance from August 5 Galaxy Unpacked event and we may get to hear more about these products soon.
