Here’s what you can expect from today’s Samsung Unpacked event

It’s August thirteenth! We’ve been drumming as much as these days ever on the grounds that Samsung introduced that they had a statement to make. Things kick off at 11AM Eastern time nowadays, which is set 4PM for our pals over in the UK.

So, what’s taking place nowadays? Good query. Thankfully nobody at Samsung can stay a mystery to save lots of their lives, so we've got just a little of an concept as to what to expect. Let’s check out all the issues we’re virtually 100% positive shall be introduced, or even a few bits that would possibly wonder us.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

It would appear foolish for Samsung to not be proceeding the Galaxy Note line this yr, no? We’re absolutely anticipating a brand new type referred to as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. As we’d imagined while Samsung showed a brand new top class construct for his or her Galaxy collection, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will include a nice sandwich consisting of two slabs of glass and a metal frame filled inside of. It’ll be as skinny and graceful as any Galaxy Note tool has been, if now not substantially extra-so.


Unfortunately, with a view to include a few downsides that we additionally suffered at the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: the loss of detachable battery and no increased garage (although one specific dual-SIM variant might include support for one). It additionally most probably gained’t be water resistant. Those are 3 biggies that might be sufficient to show lots of you off. We additionally listen the skinny shape issue will lead to a skinny battery, with the telephone getting a 3,000mAh juice pack compared to yesteryear’s 3,220mAh.

Everything else will have to be squeaky blank, despite the fact that. The O-Pen is coming round again, in fact, and there may well be a few new capability in retailer way to a neat clickable top that has been tipped in previous leaks.


And, smartly, it’s almost certainly correct to mention that just about the whole thing else concerning the telephone will fit the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge spec-for-spec. The few outstanding distinction are its inclusion of a larger 5.7-inch show with 2560 x 1440 solution. Samsung could also be rumored to be bumping the RAM inside of to a whole 4GB, that is a welcome revelation making an allowance for how aggressively TouchWiz makes use of RAM.

Everything else should be the same, together with a 16 megapixel rear digital camera with optical symbol stabilization, a 5 megapixel entrance digital camera, Samsung’s 64-bit Exynos 7420 Octa-Core chipset, wireless charging, a fingerprint scanner and NFC. There will probably be garage choices beginning from 32GB and in all probability ranging as much as 128GB.

We’re anticipating Android 5.1 Lollipop for device, even though if the present Samsung units are anything else to head via then it doesn’t amendment so much apart from giving you somewhat extra regulate over the choices specified by your notification pane. It will have to have a few distinctive Note-particular options, even though, equivalent to Air Command and Air View (which permit you to accomplish fast movements and get a snappy take a look at knowledge merely be soaring over the show).

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

If the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is only a larger Samsung Galaxy S6 with an A-Pen, then the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is just simply a large Galaxy S6 Edge, with a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 curved show. It will have to have extra RAM than the unique Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge at 4GB and an correctly larger battery at 3,000mAh, however the whole thing else will have to are available even.

That approach it stocks the unsavory features akin to no detachable battery and loss of expandable garage, and it’ll even have the similar cameras (16MP rear, 5MP entrance), chipset (Exynos 7420) and lines (wireless charging, NFC and fingerprint scanner) as the unique. It’ll get started at 32GB and can most probably pass as top as 128GB if you’re wiling to throw down extra coin.


One factor that’s come to gentle is that the Edge display will be getting some new functionality, so there’s that. You’ll nonetheless have get right of entry to on your favourite 5 folks, however you’ll now get extra choices for messaging them comparable to sending video or starting up video calls. We may additionally have the ability to fast release a couple of apps from the Edge show, despite the fact that there’s no phrase on whether or not “Apps Edge” will make a go back (the place you could run mini apps on the Edge display unbiased of the remainder of the device).

Oh, and another factor:

Yup, Samsung is making that for it.

Samsung Pay release main points

Samsung Pay is meant to be introduced in Europe, Asia and the USA this yr, and rumor has it the launch will coincide with that of the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus’s.

We’re sure to listen to extra information about the carrier’s release, although we already realize a just right deal approximately it, together with its use of Magnetic Secure Transmission technology for use with just about any cost terminal that accepts up to date bank cards.

New Samsung tablet with top class layout?

This is the place we pass off the map and get started thinking about approximately issues we would possibly see that Samsung used to be in a position to stay beneath wraps. While we haven’t heard so much a few new Galaxy Tab (aside from for them running on an absurdly-large 18-inch tablet), their teaser page for this event appeared to display 3 units. To be truthful, you can’t in reality inform what any of the units are.

We simply recognize there have been 3 particular strains, and one in every of them used to be significantly larger than the remaining. Perhaps Samsung used to be simply giving us an artsy portrayal in their “larger is best” mantra, or most likely we’ll have a scorching new tablet to get excited for. Only option to in finding out is to song in.

Samsung Gear O spherical sensible watch?

We additionally recognize Samsung is operating on a round sensible watch. It can be foolish for them to make an entire SDK for it in the event that they aren’t. That sensible watch would possibly come to marketplace referred to as the Samsung Gear A, and if a up to date SDK update is anything else to head by way of it could have a cool rotary dial for navigating the UI.


We’d expect the smart watch to still be running Tizen, and we’d additionally expect it to paintings with not anything however Samsung merchandise. That’s a disgrace for many who need to be locked into the Android Wear atmosphere, but when you don’t care approximately that it will have to become a horny superb sensible watch. Let’s wish they’re in a position to turn it off later.

What are Samsung Real-View and Bright-View?

These names have simply popped up in contemporary trademark filings. What are they? We realize Samsung used to make a Bluetooth-enabled rear view mirror named Real-View, so in all probability we may well be in-retailer for a up to date refresh. They may just additionally simply be names of a few new show options on their up to date telephones that we haven’t heard approximately but. Either approach, we’re preserving an eye fixed out.

You excited?

So, there’s so much to absorb although Samsung is best launching their new phablets these days. Are you excited for the telephones? Hoping for one thing extra? Let us realize directly in advance, and keep on with us right through the day as we convey you complete and endured protection from New York City beginning at 11AM Eastern.
