Another Samsung Unpacked event is happening on April 28 at 10 am ET / 7 am PT (3 pm in the UK and 12 am-midnight on April 29 in Australia), the company announced in an official blog post.
Given the mention of ‘Galaxy‘ in the scant event description, we could see the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 or a new Galaxy Tab tablet launched. It could also refer to Samsung’s laptop and Chromebook ranges, such as the Samsung Galaxy Book S, and Samsung Galaxy Bookflix.
The event was announced with a single tagline: ‘The most powerful Galaxy is coming‘ and, of course, a teaser video showing a mysterious something overloading gadgets and appliances all over town.
Samsung, like many device makers, has worked to bring features from smartphones to PCs. That includes longer battery life and cellular connectivity. Apple popularized the effort with its M1 MacBooks, while Qualcomm has worked with PC makers to introduce new devices with its chips. Samsung’s rumoured new laptops – possibly the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 – could include 5G connectivity, OLED screens and other high-end specs.
The most powerful expected mobile device is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, which we’ve recently heard could have a small outer display.
The ‘most powerful’ reference may also mean it’s more likely we’ll see a new laptop at this event, as those will be far more powerful than any smartphone or tablet device that Samsung would show off.
There may also be a bit of a clue in the final image, which shows a blue rectangle casting a blue shadow. It kind of looks like a laptop-like device – though maybe we’re looking too much into it.
The overall computer sector has gotten a boost over the past year as more people seek out devices for working and studying from home during the coronavirus pandemic. Though people are watching their spending, they’re scooping up electronics like laptops.
So, whatever it is, at least we won’t have long to find out…
