Samsung has set aside August 11th for its huge Galaxy Unpacked event, which will see the debut of numerous new products, including the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Leading up to this highly-anticipated leak, notorious gadget leaker Evan Blass revealed 360-degree views of all the expected devices, and today, he's giving some additional specs/features for the two most prominent devices that will launch. According to Blass, the flagship Galaxy Z Fold 3 will feature a 7.6-inch primary folding display and a 6.2-inch external cover display.

Samsung was among the first to bring a foldable smartphone to the consumer market with its original Galaxy Fold and then followed up with devices like the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Fold 2. The latter is currently Samsung's largest device with a flexible display, measuring 7.6 inches across when unfolded. However, according to a new report, Samsung plans a folding device much larger than the Galaxy Z Fold. The Galaxy Z Fold Tab is reportedly in the pipeline for Samsung and will employ a tri-folding display. The display will allegedly be covered in the latest version of Samsung's Ultra-Thin Glass, which will hopefully be even more durable than the current iteration. It will also likely support...

When it comes to folding smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is one of the most ambitious devices to launch to date. As a follow-up to the problematic Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 entered the market with a price tag of $1999.99. However, that exorbitant price tag put the Galaxy Z Fold 2 out of the reach of most mainstream smartphone buyers. Samsung addresses that issue somewhat today with the announcement of a $200 price cut for the smartphone, taking its price down to $1,799. When purchasing directly from Samsung, you also get an instant $200 accessory credit that can be used towards Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds, a Galaxy Watch3, or any other device that you might want to pair with your...

ETNews reported on industry rumors that Samsung Display plans to supply horizontal and vertically folding phones to companies, including Chinese smartphone makers this year. Specifically, there are plans to produce... Read more...
The next generation of Samsung foldable devices will soon be in your hands. Samsung just officially announced their new Galaxy Z Fold 2.

The original Samsung Galaxy Fold was quite the engineering marvel, combining a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC with a folding 7.3-inch AMOLED display (2152x1536). Despite all of its forward-thinking ideas, there was one problem that Samsung could quite solve with the Galaxy Fold: an unsightly crease in the display when it was unfolded. The crease was not only visible to the naked eye, but you could also feel the indentations in the screen due to the hinge mechanism. Many people had hoped that the second-generation device, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, would be able to solve this problem or at least somewhat reduce the effects. However, a new leaked video shows that the crease unfortunately... Read more...
Samsung has officially announced its true, powerhouse flagship smartphone. No, we're not talking about the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, but rather the Galaxy Z Fold 2. This is the follow-up to last year's problem-prone Galaxy Fold, and Samsung is hoping to make a bigger splash in the folding smartphone with improved specifications and useful improvements. For starters, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 takes advantage of Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865+ SoC, which features faster GPU and CPU clocks for improved overall performance, paired with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. That means that you should see snappier performance not only when navigating the Android UI or opening your apps, but... Read more...
Some new renders have surfaced that give us our best look yet at what the coming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphone might look like. The images show the smartphone will come in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze colors. Like the original, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a folding mechanism with a hinge on the side resembling a book. While the Z Fold 2 5G shares the same book-like folding mechanism as its predecessor, there are some significant changes for the new model. One big change for the second-generation model is the replacement of the notch on the outer and inner displays with punch-hole displays. The cover display also has significantly thinner bezels than the original device allowing for a larger... Read more...
Samsung’s 2020 “Galaxy Unpacked” event will soon be upon us, and the word on the street is that the Galaxy Z Fold 2will be making an appearance after all, following reports that it had been delayed. Confirmation of the device’s appearance at the online event comes from Samsung itself via a leaked render. Although the image is blurry, it does confirm a few things about the device. The eye-catching copper finish that we saw on the leaked Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has also been draped over the Galaxy Z Fold 2. In addition, the rectangular rear camera pod from the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra also has seemingly made the cut. Although we can only see... Read more...
Microsoft's Surface Duo is joining Google's Pixel 4a in the latest round of "Will they or won't they" when it comes to releases. The launches of both smartphones have been "just around the corner" for months, and it now looks as though the former has yet another delay tacked on to its formal release. This information comes from well-connected Microsoft watcher Zac Bowden, who posted what he gleaned from sources on Twitter. "MS has pushed back internal plans to launch the device later this month," wrote Bowden. "Sounds like it'll still happen sometime this summer, just later than originally planned." So, with July out of the question, it's also appearing that August is off... Read more...
Samsung has taken to Twitter to confirm the date for its Unpacked event that will undoubtedly bring new smartphones (and more) for fans to enjoy. The teaser event shows a copper-colored stylus with a bit of liquid dripping off the tip and splattering on a white surface. The only text reads "Power - a new form for a new norm. Unpacked on August 5, 2020." The tweet also carries the hashtag #SamsungEvent. As for what device Samsung may be teasing with the copper-color dripping off the stylus, if we had to bet we'd say it's the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra that leaked at the beginning of the month. The device that turned up in that leaked image, which can be seen above, has what appears to be the same exact... Read more...
We're roughly a month away from Samsung's next big "Unpacked" event, and the electronics giant is expected to launch a number of new products including the successor to the original Galaxy Fold. A new report is suggesting that Samsung is changing up the naming convention of the new device, and will call it the Galaxy Z Fold 2. That name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue with ease, but does align the new smartphone with the Galaxy Z Flip that launched earlier this year. According to SamMobile, this shift also meshes with comments from a Samsung spokesperson during the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip. At the time, the representative indicated that the "Z" moniker was chosen because “it intuitively... Read more...
