Samsung Galaxy Unpacked July 2024: How to watch


Samsung Galaxy Unpacked is just around the corner, bringing with it new gadgets, more AI integration, and the potential for a big announcement or two. Here’s how to watch July 2024’s Samsung Galaxy Unpacked.

How to watch Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2024

Like previous years, Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2024 will be livestreamed on both its official website and YouTube channel (embedded below). The broadcast is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m. PT on July 10. If this seems early it’s because the in-person event is being hosted in Paris, where it will kick off at 3 p.m.

What can we expect at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2024?

Samsung has historically used Unpacked to launch new gadgets, and 2024 looks to be no different. First taking place in 2009, the biannual event is dedicated to showcasing Samsung’s latest smartphones, tablets, and wearables, featuring keynote talks by the tech giant’s executives.


Samsung Unpacked: Every announcement expected at July event

As such, several significant announcements are expected at this month’s Unpacked, which will also focus on Samsung’s AI integration.

Tech companies are obsessed with AI right now, and Samsung is no exception. We may not see a Samsung AI announcement as significant as January’s unveiling of Galaxy AI. Even so, we can definitely expect an update on the suite of generative AI tools.

Samsung has been teasing the “next frontier of Galaxy AI” in the lead up to its mid-year Unpacked event, hinting at further AI integration into its devices. Galaxy AI currently includes features such as Circle to Search, Live Translate, and even Edit Suggestions for photos.

Galaxy Unpacked may also include news on the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Ring — and perhaps even a launch of the finger-sized wearable. Designed to track metrics such as your sleep and heart health, Samsung’s smart ring is intended to complement the company’s smartwatches rather than replace them.

We’ve known that Samsung has been developing the Galaxy Ring since it was first teased in January, however July could be the month we’re finally told when we can slip it on our fingers. 

Samsung’s Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6

Samsung typically refreshes its flip and fold smartphones around July or August, and we have no reason to think 2024 will be an exception. While 2024’s first Unpacked focused on Samsung’s Galaxy S42 smartphone line (including the Galaxy S24 Ultra, S24+, and S24), July’s event will likely introduce a new generation of foldables: The Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6.

Leaks suggest that Samsung’s Z Flip 6 will be upgraded to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, putting it on par with the Galaxy S24, as well as a 50MP main camera (up from the Z Flip 5’s 12MP). It will also receive a boost to its battery, increasing from 3,700mAh 4,000mAh. 

Performance isn’t the only area where we’re likely to see improvement, though. Leaked images indicate that both the Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 will have slimmer hinges than their predecessors, with Samsung continuing to streamline its foldable devices’ hardware.

Galaxy Watch 7

There’s also a good chance we’ll get some news about Samsung’s smartwatches. Leaks late last month revealed that the Galaxy Watch 7 will be available in a 40-millimetre size as well as the colour “Cream,” though it’s expected that Samsung will offer further options as well. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 comes in both 40-millimetre and 44-millimetre, and has different colourways.

The Galaxy Watch 7 will also take full advantage of Samsung’s focus on AI. The wearable will include a number of AI-powered features, including a “Personalized Daily AI companion” which will enable “AI Powered Sleep, AI Powered Exercise, and AI Powered Communication.” Barring any further leaks, we’ll just have to wait for Samsung’s official announcement to find out exactly what all that means.
