Samsung will host its Galaxy Unpacked event on October 20. The event will be live-streamed on the company's official YouTube channel. Apple and Google will host their own events on October 18 and October 19 respectively.
Next week is all set to be a busy one. Following announcements from both Apple and Google, Samsung has now announced that it too will be hosting its Galaxy Unpacked event next week. Specifically, on October 20. Due to the ongoing situation, the event will be held completely online. Apple and Google are scheduled to host their events on October 18 and October 19 respectively.
As mentioned earlier, the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event will be streamed online on October 20. Those interested can head over to Samsung’s official YouTube channel to watch the event. It is scheduled to kick off from 10:00 am ET, which is 7:30 pm here in India.
In its press release, Samsung states, “Our users are multifaceted and live life in so many colourful, interesting, and unique ways. As such, the technology they use every day should reflect their individuality. Join Galaxy Unpacked Part 2 on October 20 to see how Samsung is opening up new experiences for self-expression through technology.”
This seems to suggest that we might see more colour options for the company’s current lineup of devices. In fact, the company may even allow for more customisation by allowing buyers to pick the colour they want, thereby expressing their “individuality.” Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, so all this is mere speculation.
While Samsung is pretty quiet about what it plans to showcase at the event, rumours circulate that it could be a new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. The ‘FE’ version is usually a more affordable version of the year’s flagship S-series smartphone. It should be noted that last year’s Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (review) was also unveiled around this time.
As mentioned earlier both Apple and Google plan to host events next week. Apple will be the first of the trio to hold its event on October 18. The Apple Unleashed event is expected to see the unveiling of new M1X-powered MacBooks.
Google’s event is set to happen a day later on October 19. During the event, the company will give more details about its Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones. It should be noted that while Google has already announced the phones, it still hasn’t given more information about the new Tensor cores that will power the new smartphones.
