Samsung has accidentally revealed the teaser for the next Unpacked event. The leaked teaser shows an August 11 launch date as well as an illustration of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. The caption also reveals a folding phone but doesn’t mention anything related to Samsung’s upcoming Wear OS smartwatch.

The teaser was later taken down from the website, but it hung around long enough for tipsters to be recorded. The illustration clearly points to the larger Galaxy Z Fold 3 as a successor to the Fold 2 and a new Galaxy Z Flip successor. The Fold in dark green while the Flip in pink could also point to the new colors you can expect from Samsung.
Samsung accidentally leaked the launch date
While previous rumors suggested that Samsung is planning a cheaper version of the Flip, which is expected to be called the Galaxy Z Flip Lite, Samsung may use the existing Flip model as a base. The regular Galaxy Z Flip 3 is going to get a notable design upgrade from the 2020 model. Instead of the smaller 1.1-inch OLED display on the outside, Samsung is now going to use a larger 1.9-inch OLED display, largely inspired by the Razer 5G.
That being said, it can display full messages and possibly give users basic device control. A new design accommodates this larger display in a similar way to the older Pixel 2 series.
These devices can be launched in the event
Both renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 have leaked extensively, including the launch date. Other products Samsung will launch at the event include Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch Active 4 and Galaxy Buds 2. The new Galaxy Watch series will run the new integrated operating system developed by Samsung in collaboration with Google. Some key specifications, image renders and pricing of the upcoming Galaxy Buds 2 have also been leaked.
Leaks also suggested that Samsung may introduce the Galaxy S21 FE alongside these folding smartphones. The S21 FE is expected to launch only in select markets including the US. India availability is currently unknown.
