Samsung has announced its next Galaxy Unpacked event, where it will likely show off what’s next in its Galaxy product lines. This event is scheduled for 7 a.m. PT on April 28 and will be livestreamed on Samsung’s website.

The event was announced via a press release, but there weren’t any additional details about the purpose of the event apart from the teaser video attached to the announcement. The event invite doesn’t provide much in the realm of clues either, just a cube lit up in blue and the statement that this new product will be “the most powerful Galaxy.”

This will be the third virtual Unpacked event of 2021 so far. The first occurred during the week of CES, which saw the debut of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S21, S21+, and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. These were all 5G-enabled phones and focused on the new camera module, the high refresh rate displays, and new sizes.

The second Unpacked event, which the company dubbed the “Galaxy Awesome Unpacked” event, was in March. This one was focused squarely on Samsung’s cheaper A-series line of smartphones. Products launched included the Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A72 phones.

In other words, don’t expect any new smartphones to be announced at this third Galaxy Unpacked event. Samsung has multiple lines of Galaxy-branded products, including tablets, laptops, and headphones, and this could even be something entirely new. Any of those seem up for grabs in this next Unpacked event, but we’ll have to wait to find out for sure.

Earlier today, Apple announced its own “Spring Loaded” event, scheduled for April 20, which is over a month later than usual. Rumors are pointing to a refresh of the iPad Pro, a redesigned iMac, and even the delayed AirTag tracking devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2024) is the latest entry in Samsung’s midrange tablet lineup that made its debut in 2020. This newest iteration has the same overall design, S Pen integration, screen, and just 4GB RAM. However, it now has a new Exynos processor and comes with Android 14 right out of the box.

In the market for a new phone? You might be considering the latest offering from Samsung, which includes the Galaxy S24. It’s the entry level model for the S24 lineup, but still packs great performance and power with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip and 8GB RAM, a beautiful LTPO AMOLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate and 2,600 nits peak brightness. And even though it’s a base model, you get a triple lens camera system.

But the Galaxy S24 isn’t the only option you have out there. Here are five great alternatives to consider if you’re thinking about the S24.

Over the last couple of days, there have been seemingly endless reports of One UI 6.1 wreaking havoc for Galaxy S23 owners — including everything from unresponsive touchscreens, fingerprint sensors not working, and more.
