Samsung fans, it’s time to start getting excited. Why? Because we finally have the official date for Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event. If you’ve been following Samsung rumors over the last few weeks, it won’t come as any surprise at all.

Samsung has confirmed that this summer’s Galaxy Unpacked is happening on Wednesday, July 10, in Paris. This is a bit earlier in the year than Samsung typically holds its summer Unpacked (last year’s happened on July 26). Describing this year’s Paris setting, Samsung says it is “where historic and iconic culture meet to inspire all those who visit, creating the ultimate backdrop for the rollout of Samsung’s latest innovations.”

Unpacked officially kicks off at 9 a.m. ET /6 a.m. PT on July 10 — or 3 p.m. Paris time. If you aren’t attending in person, Samsung will be live-streaming the event on its website and YouTube channel for everyone to see. The event teaser hints at a folding phone with Samsung’s Galaxy AI logo, giving us a pretty good idea of what to expect.

As the rumors have suggested for months, we’re expecting a lot from next month’s Unpacked. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 will likely be the two smartphone announcements. There have been murmurs of a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Ultra, but it’s unclear if that’s still happening. We’ll also likely see the Galaxy Watch 7, the Galaxy Watch Ultra, and the Galaxy Ring. It’s possible Samsung will introduce a new series of Galaxy S10 tablets, but that one is more uncertain.

The Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 are expected to be minor upgrades over their predecessors, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. The Galaxy Watch 7 also appears to be a tame release. The Galaxy Watch Ultra should be a lot more interesting, as it’ll be the first Galaxy Watch with the Ultra moniker. And, of course, a full release for Samsung’s first smart ring is worth looking forward to.

In typical Samsung fashion, today’s Unpacked announcement is accompanied by a new Reserve offer. Starting today, June 25, at 7 p.m. ET and going through July 10, you can reserve one of the upcoming Galaxy devices to receive an instant $50 discount and an offer to save up to $1,500 when you place your preorder next month. Samsung’s Reserve program simply requires you to enter your email address with no money down, so if you’re even slightly interested in what’s coming from Unpacked next month, you might as well take advantage of it.

We’ll have a lot more coverage about Unpacked soon, so stay tuned.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 has finally been revealed, and yes, it looks gorgeous. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5, the new model should push the revitalized flip smartphone market closer to the mainstream. The biggest additions to the Galaxy Z Flip 6 are its new cameras and improved battery life. It also contains the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip found in the Galaxy S24 series, including the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

The new Galaxy Z Flip 6 will grab attention for its design in a phone market segment that was nearly obsolete just a few years ago. But did it bring back older technology, such as a 3.5-inch headphone jack? Does Samsung’s latest flip phone include a headphone jack, or does the Z Flip 6 continue the trend of omitting this once-essential port? Let's find out.

Samsung has unveiled its newest product, the Samsung Galaxy Ring. While we mostly see iterative updates to Samsung's lineup of phones and smartwatches, the Galaxy Ring is a brand new product category for Samsung, and that’s a big deal.

Smart rings have become more popular in recent years as an alternative or complement to existing wearables, such as the Apple Watch or Galaxy Watch. The leading player in the smart ring market has been the Oura Ring, but that may be changing soon now that Samsung has entered the fray with the Galaxy Ring.
