Trading in older or existing phones to buy new ones is an alien concept to me; you're almost always guaranteed a better price selling them to another person. But it's a convenient practice in some countries with some brands, and it lowers the sticker shock, especially on prohibitively expensive phones like the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip series. This time around, Samsung is easing the burden a bit more by letting you trade in two phones instead of one, for a larger price cut.
Samsung has unfolded our collective invitation to August 11th's Galaxy Unpacked event. Get it — unfolded? Look, Samsung's almost certainly going to launch the new Z Fold3 and Flip3, its two hotly anticipated foldables, at the now-confirmed August 11th event, and that's the only joke we could think to make. Sorry. But you can reserve the company's "next flagship" (gee, what on earth could that be?) starting today and get up to $100 more on your trade-in, a year of free Samsung Care+, and an undefined "special" pre-order offer.
Like any tech company, Samsung loves to keep its upcoming devices as secretive as possible to surprise its fans during an official launch event. Of course, there's a certain saying about best-laid plans, which is why we have a pretty good idea of all of the upcoming gadgets arriving this fall. After accidentally showing off a couple of unannounced products in a promotional video, Samsung is officially teasing its next Galaxy Unpacked event with a bit of help from Bixby.
We have been eagerly awaiting Samsung's next generation of folding phones for a while now, but it looks like we might finally be finally coming up on an announcement. After two recent FCC filings revealed the existence of the Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 closing in on a launch, a third report gives us some new insight on the latter's stylus support.
Samsung has plenty of new gadgets on the horizon, and nearly all of them have leaked out. From the Galaxy Z Flip3 and S Pen-equipped Z Fold3 to the hotly-anticipated Galaxy Watch4 series, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the fall lineup. All that's been missing is when we'll actually see the launch for all these new devices, but a new report is finally filling in those details.
We're quickly approaching Samsung's usual late-summer slot for announcing new flagship devices, but this year, it's the Galaxy Z-series we're expecting to see instead of a Note refresh. Both the Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 passed through the FCC last week, revealing stylus support for the latter. However, if you've been waiting to see what the next clamshell foldable from Samsung would look like, new renders have leaked that show the phone from all angles.
