Huge Leak Says Samsung’s Next Unpacked Galaxy Could Bring New Foldables, Smartwatches, Headphones


We may now know a lot of what’s going on at Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event thanks to a series of tweets from famed leaker Evan Blass. It looks like the event could be big, as Blass tweeted a long thread with GIFs of two new foldable Galaxy, a new Galaxy FE phone, two new Galaxy Watches, and even a bunch of new Galaxy Buds. He also says the event should take place in a month on August 11.

First of all, the foldables. Blass has previously leaked what appear to be official renderings of the purported Galaxy Z Fold 3 (which may support the S Pen stylus) and Galaxy Z Flip 3, but the new GIFs he shared give a glimpse of both devices. from all angles.

Here’s the Z Fold 3, which Blass shared GIFs in White, green, and black:

And here’s the Z Flip 3, in which Blass tweeted mauve, black, gold, and green:

Blass’s thread also includes GIFs of what appears to be the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE in White, a yellowish gray, mauve, and black. The phone, if released, will likely be a mid-range version of the S21 and seems to take a lot of inspiration from the design of Samsung’s flagship (as the S20 FE looked like the S20).

Whether or not this phone is in production is an open question; in June, in response to a report claiming that Samsung had halted production of the phone, Samsung said “nothing has been determined regarding the alleged suspension of production.” Those Blass GIFs could be a sign the phone is ready.

But Blass didn’t just share GIFs from phones – he also tweeted GIFs from two new Samsung watches. One model appears to closely match the rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, with what appears to be a rotating bezel and two buttons on the right side. The watch, in which Blass tweeted White, black, and Grey, is also expected to run the new smart watch platform from Google and Samsung.

The other watch shared by Blass seems to match the rumors of the Galaxy Watch Active 4. This watch does not appear to have a rotating bezel, and according to On leaks and GizNext, it can exist in two different sizes: 44mm and 40mm. Blass shared GIFs from the watch in Grey, dark green, White, peach, and two tweets of one black look (although I couldn’t tell the difference between them other than what is displayed on the screen).

Blass’s GIF thread also reveals three unannounced Galaxy Buds colors that match the Galaxy Buds 2 rumors, which the Ice Universe leaker says will have active noise cancellation. Blass’s GIFs show the buds and interior of the white case in gray, purple, and white, matching the style of a leaked render shared by 91mobiles which showed combinations of green, black and white buds / inner housings.

Finally, let’s quickly talk about that supposed date, August 11, which I think is the one you might want to circle on your calendar. When Samsung presented its smartwatch platform developed with Google at the end of June, it said there will be an Unpacked event “later this summer”, So August 11 would fall into this timeline. And the company has been running Unpacked summer events in early August for a few years now, which means August 11 wouldn’t be off the usual pattern.

Since Samsung hasn’t officially announced any of these products or the date of the event, there’s still a possibility that Blass’s leak won’t actually come out. But given Blass’ background and the detail of the GIFs he shared, it seems possible that he did reveal some of the biggest news from Samsung’s upcoming Unpacked event.
