Samsung has already launched a lineup of new Galaxy phones and TVs this year, but the tech giant isn’t done with announcing things yet.
March 18 marks the date for Samsung’s Galaxy Awesome Unpacked event. Here are the details Australians need to know.
What to expect at Samsung’s latest event
Galaxy Awesome Unpacked comes just a couple of short months after the first Galaxy Unpacked event for 2021. In this earlier event, Samsung announced its new range of Galaxy S21 phones.
Samsung is, unsurprisingly, keeping the contents of its announcement very under wraps. The event invitation gives very little away, but they did add ‘awesome’ to the event title.
Thanks to recent rumours and leaks, plus the ‘a’ in ‘awesome’, it seems likely that this event will reveal the next series of Galaxy A devices. This will probably come in the form of the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72, which are Samsung’s more affordable mid-tier smartphones.
Apart from that, we’re still waiting on news about Samsung’s next lineup of folding phones – the Z Flip 3 and the Z Fold 3. Some rumours indicate these phones could be released in the first half of 2021. However, Samsung may reserve another announcement event for these closer to the time.
