It’s no secret that the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are expected to launch today, but there’s nothing wrong with a little teaser image just before Unpacked to give you a taste of the new wireless earbuds. this comes from @TheGalox_ (opens in a new tab) On twitter.
Frankly, we like the rounded design. And we wish the AirPods Pro 2 looked similar and got rid of the stems. From Samsung’s new buds, we’re expecting advanced noise cancellation along with 24-bit audio support, but not much else is known.
Here is a slight spoiler alert for the Galaxy Z Fold 4. According to this tweet from @sondesix (opens in a new tab)Samsung’s new foldable flagship will come in Beige, Phantom Black, and Graygreen. And you will have three storage options: 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 maxed out at 512GB, so it’s good to know power users will be able to get that much storage. But you should be prepared to pay a hefty premium for that maximum amount.

We’re getting close to the start time for Unpacked, which means it’s time for some last-minute leaks. This one comes from Slashleaks (opens in a new tab)and shows two dummy units of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. One is graphite and the other is rose gold.
Also, Samsung has already said that as part of its Bespoke program, there will be more than 70 color combinations for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. So you will definitely be able to stand out from the crowd.
The other device we’re sure to see today is the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2. How confident? Well, leaker Evan Blass has shared what he claims are versions of the new ‘buds, and they certainly look genuine, so we’d say we’re pretty sure about this one too.
We haven’t seen as many leaks on the Buds Pro 2 as we have on Samsung phones or wearables, but we expect them to have active noise cancellation (ANC), slightly longer battery life, and 24-bit audio support. We also think there will be three colors, shown by Mr. Blass above.
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the most exciting of the rumored new models. We’ve seen quite a few leaks about it, the biggest (and most recent) being one from the German site WinFuture, which claims it will come in a 45mm size with a large 1.36-inch 450 x 450 AMOLED screen and a super – robust construction, thanks to the sapphire crystal on the front and a titanium case.
A beefy 590mAh battery is also recommended, which will reportedly give you up to 80 hours of runtime on a single charge. Wow!
So far, we’ve focused on the two rumored new Samsung foldables, but we’re also expecting non-mobile devices to launch at Unpacked today. Namely, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 range and the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2.
Let’s start with the Watch 5. We consider last year’s Galaxy Watch 4 to be the best Android smartwatch, but with the Google Pixel Watch due out in October, the new model will have to improve even more to stay ahead of the competition.
Or rather, the new Models it’s going to have to get even better, because we’re expecting three of them to launch today, in the form of a standard version, a classic, and a new ‘Pro’ variant.
Samsung has made a big deal out of cameras over the last year or two, so we expect that to continue with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. The Fold needs better camera hardware to help justify its likely high price and the Flip needs some work on software and night photography.
Fortunately, Samsung has come a long way recently. We don’t expect the Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Galaxy Z Flip 4 to make our list of the best camera phones, but the Korean phone maker could surprise us this year.
Then there’s the Galaxy Z Flip 4, which has plenty of room to grow. First and foremost on our minds is (again) battery life. In Tom’s Guide’s battery life test, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 couldn’t even manage 6 hours, clocking in at 5 hours and 43 minutes. That’s pretty sad.
We’re expecting a bigger battery this year, in addition to the more energy-efficient Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. Hopefully both combined will make for a more durable Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Where does the Galaxy Z Fold 4 need to improve over the Galaxy Z Fold 3? The first thing that comes to mind is battery life. In our custom battery life test, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 managed a mere 7 hours and 52 seconds. The average for smartphones is 10 hours.
Durability is still a concern for foldables, so we’re expecting the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to be more durable this time around. We also want to see updated camera hardware; It would be nice if the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could at least be on the same level as the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
What about the Galaxy Z Flip 4? There is also a leak for that. Featured specs include a 6.7-inch foldable Dynamic AMOLED display with a resolution of 2640 x 1080 and a density of 425 pixels per inch and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Those are the same specs as the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but from the images it looks like the bezels around the screen may be a bit slimmer.
The external display is expected to be 1.9-inches again, with a resolution of 512 x 260. For added durability, Gorilla Glass Victus Plus will apparently be used on the cover panel. The Galaxy Z Flip 4’s battery is set to be a 3,700mAh cell (vs. the Flip 3’s 3,300mAh).
So what do we know about the Galaxy Z Fold 4? Well, thanks to a lot of last minute leaks, a lot. We’re expecting the foldable to use a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor (let’s say five times faster) and we’ve heard a new 50MP main camera. But a leaked Amazon listing gave us some measurements, 155.1 x 67.1 x 15.8 mm (or 6.1 x 2.64 x 0.62 inches) when folded (130.1 mm or 5.1 inches wide when unfolded).
The Galaxy Z Fold 4’s front screen is listed as 6.2-inches, which is the same as last year’s, but the aspect ratio is 23.1:9 (slightly wider than the Z Fold 3) and the 7.6-inch main screen is 21.6:18. Both panels reportedly have a 120Hz refresh rate.
