Speaking of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung has already opened up its Reserve Now program for its "next flagship." With Reserve Now, early preorder customers can take advantage of special perks like an increased trade-in value for your current smartphone and 12 months of its Samsung Care+ protection plan at a discounted rate.

Although Samsung isn't going into further details at the moment on what it's announcing at Galaxy Unpacked, here's the rundown based on prior leaks:

The three smartphones are expected to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, although it's highly probable that Samsung could opt for the Snapdragon 888+ in the two folding smartphones. In addition, the Galaxy Watch 4 Series will use the new Tizen Wear OS, which was developed in partnership with Samsung and Google. Finally, the Galaxy Buds 2 are expected as Samsung's latest take on wireless noise cancellation earbuds.
