What to expect from Samsung Unpacked?

Samsung is expected to release the latest generations of its foldable smartphones, the Z Flip and Z Fold, which the company has teased will be lighter and slimmer than previous models. 

The company is also expected to launch its newest Galaxy Watch 6 series, which is rumored to have new displays, a new bigger-sized watch option, and even feature the return of a physical rotating bezel.

The watches will also showcase Samsung's latest software, One UI 5, which will include enhancements to sleep, fitness, and health tracking, as reported earlier this year.

Lastly, Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy Tab S9 lineup with updated processors and, hopefully, better displays than last year's Tab S8.
