Samsung will host the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event in Seoul on July 27. While this confirms the earlier rumours about the event date, the choice of holding it in Seoul has significance. To be more specific, it will be taking place in COEX in Samseong-dong, Gangnam. That place must have ringed a bell. Isn’t it? Let’s learn why Samsung decided on this location.
This Samsung Galaxy Unpacked in Seoul: Why does it matter?
In its media release, Samsung not only announces the new venue for Galaxy Unpacked, and the date of the event but also highlights the relevance of Seoul in general and why Samsung chose it for launching the upcoming foldables.
Samsung says Gangnam has a blend of innovation and tradition. It is a hub for several startups and there is a Buddhist temple also present here.
The folding form factor may be next-gen and new, but inherently foldables are phones only. So, in that sense, they are also an intersection of the past, present, and future of phones.
Samsung also notes how it is bullish on foldables and aims for widespread adoption of foldable phones.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5: What to expect
Samsung has reportedly used the teardrop hinge on both phones and thus their crease should be less visible. This should also let you close the devices flat. Another new feature that we may get to see is IP58 dust and water resistance.
The foldables may also sport Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset.
On the camera front, the Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5 may bring new sensors. There are contradicting reports about the megapixel size.
A big change, however, will be on the Z Flip 5’s cover display size. Through renders and rumours, we have learned that it could be a bigger screen like that of the recently released Motorola Razr 40 Ultra.
In time, we will know if these rumours are true. Mark July 27 on your calendar to catch the event live.
