Samsung Unpacked 2023: What’s Coming?

Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5

The biggest launch at this week’s Samsung event will be the new foldables: Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. Both devices are expected to be somewhat iterative in their improvements, with most of the updates coming to the Galaxy Z Flip 5.

Samsung is set to improve on the Flip 5 primarily with a new coverage display that’s drastically larger than the Flip 3 and Flip 4. The display is expected to open up support for a full keyboard and more useful widgets, but it’s unclear whether full apps will be supported.

Both devices will also bring updates like Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, a new hinge that allows the foldables to close completely instead of leaving a gap, and some new colors and cases.

Galaxy Tab S9 series

Samsung’s flagship tablets will also get an upgrade to Unpacked this year, with the Tab S9, S9+ and S9 Ultra on the agenda.

The main update is Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but there are other little tidbits beyond that, like eSIM support, AMOLED on the smaller model, and more. It’s a welcome arrival, as it’s been just over a year since Samsung last launched high-end Android tablets.

Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic

Finally, the other guarantee of this week’s Fold/Flip 5 event is the new Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic from Samsung.

The standard Watch 6 is only seeing a couple of notable changes: a W930 chipset that should be a bit faster, and slimmer bezels that make room for a larger display. The RAM also goes from 1.5GB to 2GB.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will revive the physical rotating bezel in addition to the standard model updates.

It’s possible these watches will also debut Wear OS 4, which was announced at Google I/O and offers several benefits, with the ability to connect to a new phone without a reset being one of the biggest benefits.

I maybe

Outside of core training, there are a few other things that we Could be also see, but there is not much known.

Galaxy SmartTags 2

One of the most likely introductions could be the Galaxy SmartTag 2. Samsung hasn’t launched a new version of its tracker since the debut of the Galaxy S21 more than two years ago. There have been reports and regulatory trials of this new model, but we haven’t seen any image leaks, so there’s no guarantees.

Samsung’s XR headphones

Samsung is said to be launching its own mixed reality headset based on a new version of Android that was supposed to arrive at this event. But Samsung is said to have delayed that device for a few months in the wake of Apple’s Vision Pro debut.

A little teaser is what we would expect the most of all.

Galaxy Tab S9 FE and Galaxy S23 FE

Samsung’s “Fan Edition” lineups may return soon, as there is strong evidence pointing to upcoming releases for the Galaxy Tab S9 FE and Galaxy S23 FE. While there is a possibility that they could come to this event, it is not very likely.

Galaxy Buds 3

It’s been a while since Samsung released a new set of earphones and there’s definitely a chance we’ll see a launch this week. But there was only one report about it and no leaks. So we don’t expect to hear anything on that front without puns.

Book for a $50 discount

Up until the day before Unpacked, Samsung is offering open preorders for the Fold, Flip, and Tab S9 series. All of these devices will be eligible for a $50 credit upon pre-order, which can be used as a discount on the device or towards accessories. Either way, it’s worth signing up if you think you might be able to pre-order.

YouTube Premium is now more expensive

Following a price hike for family plans earlier this year, Google implemented a price hike for YouTube Premium. Individual plans are now $13.99 a month, up from $11.99, and YouTube Music is also going from $9.99 to $10.99 a month. Even older plans locked at $10 a month will face a hike later this year.

Bard Extensions are just around the corner

As our own Kyle Bradshaw and Dylan Roussel report, Bard is getting extensions soon. This will allow the AI ​​chatbot to integrate with other Google products like Flights and Maps, as well as some third-party services including Instacart, Kayak, and others. ChatGPT first rolled out the plug-ins earlier this year, but it’s still exciting to see Google take it on, as it could make Bard an even more powerful tool.
