Samsung’s next event is right around the corner, taking place on the 11th of August. Not much is being left to chance or guesswork, given the number of leaks that have taken place, and how little Samsung has fought to stave them off. It’s basically an approach of “Samsung is excited about the products, and you should be too!” Nice approach, long may it last!
Starting in stylus
When Samsung confirmed that there won’t be a new Note in 2021, it might have been met with a hint of sadness. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will take on the mantle of stylus ownership, and leaked images suggest that there will be a pocket within the fold to hold the stylus when not in use.
Rumours are also suggesting that durability will improve, thanks to an alleged IPX8 water resistance rating. The fold should be more refined than it’s predecessors, offering colour options of green, black and silver, all housing a Snapdragon 888 processor.
Take what you know & flip it
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 feature a new exterior design with vertically stacked 12-megapixel rear cameras and a larger 1.9-inch cover display for notifications and selfies. Serial Samsung leaker Evan Bass released a number of images of what we can expect, which you can take a look at here.
Watch our for our buds
Two new smartwatches are expected to be announced, the first taking on a more classic shape, and aptly named Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. We’ll probably see a more traditional watch shape, a rotating bezel and 42, 44, and 46mm sizes, which should at least give people more size options to play with. In terms of finishes, there are two: aluminium or stainless steel, both water-resistant in depths of up to 50 meters.
The more modern Galaxy Watch 4 (could be Active, but also might not) should come with two side buttons and in either 40mm or 44mm sizes. Various colours will be available, with additional customizations for watch bands.
The Galaxy Buds 2 will remain similar in design, but new colours and features are awaited. Improved noise reduction abilities are a given, but there’s little news on the battery life of these Buds, although someone has spotted the device charging case to have a 500mAh battery, with each bud carrying a 60mAh battery.
