We have heard that the South Korean tech giant is going to hold an Unpacked conference around mid-August. And as there are too many much-rumored and –discussed models on the way, this event is expected to bring them all to the stage. Among those products, we can mention the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4. It’s a bit suspicious that the company will uncover so many top-end products at a single event. But who says it couldn’t happen. Samsung is going to fight for the leading position in many segments. So it can make a furor and release a half-dozen products in one breath.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 And Friends
Well, recently, the well-known whistleblower @MaxWeinbach revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be unveiled at the Unpacked event on August 3. He also claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Active Watch 4 smartwatches will be there as well.

Plus, a whistleblower @FrontPageTech said that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will start shipping on August 27th. As for the watches, they will be available for pre-sale or sale on August 11th.
Both folding screen smartphones of Samsung will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 flagship chip. Also, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 should become Samsung’s first under-screen camera model and support S Pen.
However, we are regularly getting news about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888’s upgraded version dubbed the Snapdragon 888 Plus/Pro. And there is every reason to think that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will debut it. But if even so, this variant won’t be launched in August.
We’ve also heard that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 may adopt a larger main screen that supports 120Hz high refresh. On the contrary, the battery will be slightly smaller.
Interestingly, their price tags will be 20% lower than the previous models. The retail price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 may be around US$1,599. And the retail price of the clamshell Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 may be around US$959.
By the way, in the first half of this year, the company released the Samsung Galaxy S21 series of flagship phones in advance, in order to compete for more market share. So Samsung will probably release new folding screen smartphones in advance in the next half of the year.
