Traditionally, Samsung’s Galaxy A series phones have gone official before their flagship counterparts, but it's the other way round this time. About two months after the Galaxy S21’s grand debut, Samsung is holding another digital event — Galaxy Awesome Unpacked — later this month to most likely unveil the long-rumored Galaxy A52 and A72 mid-rangers.
If you're planning on tuning in to Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, where the S21 is expected to be formally revealed, you'll have three new venues to enjoy it from. Samsung tells us it's going to be livestreaming to Twitch, TikTok, and Reddit as well, giving you three new ways to watch.

Yes, you read that title right. Even though Samsung just had an Unpacked event slightly over a month ago, where the Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Buds Live, Galaxy Watch3, and other products were revealed, Samsung is going to hold yet another livestream in just a couple days.
As is customary before every smartphone unveiling, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra has been leaked extensively ahead of its August launch event. Both official and unofficial sources have already shown us what the device will look like and what they’re expected to pack under the hood. But this latest leak coming from trusted site WinFuture has left almost nothing to the imagination. There is a full set of Galaxy Note20 Ultra renders included, along with the details of its Project xCloud gaming features co-developed with Microsoft.
Samsung already announced that its next big launch event, Galaxy Unpacked, is set for August 5th. It was already expected that the Note20 would make an appearance, but now Samsung has revealed that no fewer than five new devices will be shown off at the event.
Samsung’s Galaxy S line for 2020 appears to have undergone a significant reshuffle, apart from the fact that its name now matches the year. Taking cues from the iPhone 11 series, the base model no longer has a separate, visibly lower-end ‘e’ branding, but is simply called the Galaxy S20, nor is it a slouch anymore. The new entrant—the S20 Ultra—takes the experience a notch higher with (slightly) superior internals, sitting right above the Plus model. The ambitious trio of flagships universally commits itself to 5G connectivity in the US, ditching the 4G-only variants for good.
We've been anticipating Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked for several weeks, and it's finally here. Granted, we've already heard about most of the Galaxy Note9's specs and features, but we're expecting to see the Galaxy Watch here as well.
