Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Live Blog Part 2: What’s Next?
If you check out our live blog now, you’re still a bit ahead and nothing’s really happening yet – so this is a good opportunity to check out some of the other mobile news going around.
In the UK, the Royal Mint (which makes physical silver, nothing to do with sweet flavor) has announced that it will start using gold from recycled mobiles for cash in the future. Do you remember physical money?
Fans of mobile games should check out Townscaper, a popular indie PC game whose mobile port has just been released on iOS and Android. Additionally, we heard a launch date for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 and saw a first image that shows an iPhone-like device.
Samsung oddly didn’t make much of the Unpacked event on its Twitter accounts – this suggests to us that there won’t be this there is a lot going on.

Case in point: The last article on the Samsung Mobile US account was about taking pictures of people (whose faces you can’t even see because of the motorcycle helmets) and nothing to do with the event.
The brand hinted at its own event …
Wow, lots of announcements this week! It is very good. Competition keeps us on our game.October 19, 2021
… in a subtle tweet discussing the Google event last night.
So the brand isn’t really working overtime to create hype for the event, and that’s why we’re not sure anything big is going to happen. No Galaxy Tab S8 for sure.
Fans of Samsung tech might be happy to hear that we recently posted our Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic review. It took quite a bit of testing as we had issues with some of his exercise and fitness tracking modes.
Some rumors suggest we might see the new Galaxy Watch 4 features showcased today, perhaps bringing new health or lifestyle tools to the premium Wear OS device.
With the recent release of the Apple Watch 7, Samsung could eclipse its close rival by bringing some useful new features not available on Apple smartwatches, but we’ll have to see.
This is the Google Pixel 6, which launched last night alongside the Pixel 6 Pro. We don’t expect Samsung to have any close rivals tonight – the Galaxy S22 will likely arrive in early 2022 – but you never know.
Today is the day of Samsung’s next Unpacked event, the – third? Fourth? of the year – and we’re a little less confident about what we’re going to see at this event.
Our fingers are aching after the Google Pixel event yesterday and the Apple October event the day before, but today is the last day of the (tech) week.
If you want to watch with the Unpacked event, we’ve got a guide on it here, or just keep an open tab with this live blog so we can give you all of our smart words.
Welcome to our live blog, where we’ll highlight everything, everything, and everything Samsung is announcing today.
We don’t expect as many announcements as we did with the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and in fact, there might not be any new products at all, with customization of its existing foldable phones most likely. but Samsung may well have some surprises. his sleeve too.
There is also an outside chance that we will see the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, so it’s worth following even if foldables aren’t for you.
