Samsung has two major events every year. At the turn of winter and spring, there is the premiere of the new top-of-the-line S models, and then there is the summer premiere, which has long been associated with the Note series models. But Samsung is done with it, it was functionally taken over by the top model of the S series. The summer event is thus primarily devoted to folding phones.
This is a fairly new category of devices, such phones have been on the market since 2019, but they have only gained a significant market position since last year. Samsung is the winner in this regard, it practically has no significant competition on the market in this segment yet, but there are already several other interesting folding phones on the market. However, often with geographically limited availability.
This year’s event, like in the previous two years, will only take place online. The reason is the coronavirus pandemic. Even though this year’s situation is much better than last year and the year before, Samsung obviously wants to avoid a big event with many participants for now. After all, even Apple will most likely not hold an event with an audience in September this year.
The last time Samsung’s summer premiere with an audience was held in 2019, when in New York, Samsung presented the models of the Note 10 series. The Note 20 series follows in 2020, and the Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 have only had virtual introductions. And this year will be no different.
According to available information the new Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 models will not bring fundamental changes. Of course, innovations will come, but the basic design will remain. More changes can be expected in the luxury Z Fold 4 model, which should get better displays and a camera. Both models will then have the most powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor from Qualcomm.
More significant changes can be expected for the new Galaxy Watch 5. Compared to its predecessor, it should have more sensors and, depending on the model, a significantly larger battery and sapphire glass. Buds 2 Pro headphones are supposed to have improved sound and a slightly different design.
