Samsung has just despatched out invites for an occasion it is keeping online on Wednesday, Oct 20th at 7AM PT / 10AM ET. It’s referred to as “Galaxy Unpacked Portion 2,” which is potentially an sign that rather than all new Galaxy phones, we could be seeing iterations on present types.
With Samsung’s announcement, we’ll now have an Apple event on Monday (in which we are anticipating new MacBook Pros), Google’s Pixel 6 start on Tuesday, and now Samsung’s apparently more compact party on Wednesday.
In addition to the invite’s impression, Samsung’s newsroom write-up announcing the party hints at some variety of personalization for Galaxy devices: “Our end users are multifaceted and reside lifestyle in so numerous colourful, intriguing, and exceptional ways. As this sort of, the technological know-how they use each individual day ought to replicate their individuality. Be a part of Galaxy Unpacked Aspect 2 on October 20 to see how Samsung is opening up new activities for self-expression by way of technological know-how.”
That could imply everything, but it does appear to hint at new hues of the Galaxy telephones or it’s possible even a full-on customization possibility. I could imagine creating a Z Flip 3 with my decision of hues on every single facet of the fold, for illustration, and the teaser image could trace at just that. With the Z Fold 2, Samsung supplied prospects the selection to decide on their individual accent coloration for the hinge, nevertheless that choice went away on the Z Fold 3 (therefore considerably, in any case).
Of class, no customization software has occur close to the first Moto X, which allow people today selected any variety of various shade options and even components for their mobile phone — like bamboo. It appears to be unlikely that Samsung will be keen to go that far.
What looks even a lot more unlikely is the Galaxy S21 FE, a lower-cost “fan edition” of the Galaxy S21 which is been kicking all over the rumor mill for a even though now. It’s considerably less very likely mostly simply because the S21 FE is at this time in a form of limbo exactly where it’s both been delayed or cancelled mainly because of the chip lack. Sammobile reviews that Samsung is nonetheless contemplating a January start for the S21 FE.
No matter of what Samsung announces on Wednesday the 20th, it will have a hard time receiving awareness immediately after all the Sturm (Apple) and Drang (Google) the earlier two times. Even though most likely picking Wednesday is Samsung’s strategic try to wrest some desire away from the Pixel 6.
