Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 at its August 2021 Galaxy Unpacked event, which takes place on August 11, 2021, at 10 a.m. ET. These are the company’s latest entries in the foldable smartphone space.

If you’re curious about what the future holds for foldable phones, this is an event you’ll want to watch.

When Will the August 2021 Galaxy Unpacked Event Take Place?

Samsung is scheduled to air its event at 10 a.m. ET on August 11, 2021. Typically, Samsung archives its Unpacked events on its YouTube channel. So, if you can’t get on at that exact time, you should be able to watch it later.

Of course, we will also keep you updated on everything Samsung announces, so make sure to check here after the event for digestible breakdowns.

How to Watch Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Event

Samsung is set to stream the event on YouTube, and you can come to this very article to watch via the embedded video below. Make sure to bookmark this page so you don’t miss it.

As it’s a YouTube video, you’ll be able to watch it pretty much anywhere—be it a browser, on your phone, smart TV, or anywhere else with a screen and an internet connection.

This is a purely virtual event, so there’s no way to attend the event, even if you’re near the location. That means you get to hang out and learn about the latest gadgets from Samsung from the comfort of your couch, chair, or wherever you happen to be sitting.

What Do We Expect to See at Unpacked?

As the tagline for the event is “Get ready to unfold,” we expect Samsung to focus on its upcoming foldable smartphones. Specifically, we’re under the impression that the company will reveal the rumored Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. As the names imply, these are the third iteration of the foldable phones, so our expectations are relatively high. Samsung has had plenty of time to work out the early kinks, so it’s time for the foldable phones to shine.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to be Samsung’s full-sized flagship foldable with a hefty price tag. On the other hand, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a clamshell phone with a smaller form factor and a lower price tag.

As far as the look of the devices, we’ve seen leaked renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and it looks a lot like the previous phone.

A new leak suggests that the foldable phones will be water-resistant this year, a significant upgrade from the previous models that were a bit too fragile.

We’ll have to wait and see precisely what Samsung decides to announce, but one thing is for sure: we’ll be here at 10 a.m. ET on August 11, 2021, watching along with all of you.
