Let’s review all highlights of Samsung Galaxy Unpacked August 2022!
For its August 2022 launches, Samsung announced details on its newest smartphones, watches, and earbuds, including the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro, and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. This is to be expected from Samsung’s semi-annual Unpacked announcement events.
What’s introduced at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked August 2022?
Samsung updated us on its environmental activities, including the use of recovered fishing nets in its most recent foldables, along with its new product launches. Additionally, we got to see a brand-new promo with BTS, Korea’s international star band.
On August 26, all of the orders are anticipated to ship.
Galaxy Z Flip 4 is announced at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked August 2022. The Flip 4 receives the same bottom-screen trackpad functionality as the Z Fold 4 as well as the S22’s night photography upgrades, including night portrait mode photos. Additionally, you’ll be able to make calls, send rapid replies to texts, and take portrait-mode pictures from the cover screen.
Additionally, you can purchase a Bespoke Edition, similar to the Flip 3.
Updated elements include:
- The 12MP cameras have brighter wide-angle lenses and more pixels.
- Processor Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1
- Increased capacity of 3,700 mAh
The bigger cover screen of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 helps apps look more natural and is made to look like a standard phone when it’s closed. You may use the bottom half of the screen as a touchpad thanks to a new Flex Mode feature that is also coming to the Flip 4.
In particular, Samsung boasts that the inside tablet-sized display is more robust than the model it replaces. The improved hinge, the redesigned screen-layer architecture, and the shock-absorbing sponge were all discussed in detail. Samsung claims that the internal display is brighter and will have a less obvious under-screen camera. The night portrait-mode photographs and other night photography advancements made with the S22 range are carried over.
This is the first smartphone, according to Samsung, to run Android 12L, the tablet-friendly version of the operating system. A new task bar is included in version 12L to speed up app switching. Fold 4 was the star of the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked August 2022.
Updated elements include:
- Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor
- 50MP main camera, and telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom in addition to the current 12MP wide-angle lens
In addition to the current Watch sizes, there is a brand-new Pro model that is larger, heavier, and constructed of more durable titanium. Because of their larger batteries (590 mAh in the Pro), infrared skin temperature sensors, and sapphire crystal watch faces rather than Gorilla Glass, Samsung claims that both Watches have longer battery lives than previous generations. There will also be fresh faces accessible.
Samsung claims that the bigger sensor contact surface area and lower combined sensor size on the wrist will produce more accurate findings.
In exchange for the trade-in of an “eligible” watch, Samsung is giving preorder customers trade-in savings of $75 off the Watch 5 or $125 off the Pro and a $50 credit for accessories.
When used with a Galaxy phone running Samsung’s One UI 4.0 or later, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro offer improved surround and hi-fi audio. Another two hours have been squeezed out of the battery by Samsung.
Samsung will improve the 360 LE audio on the Buds 2 Pro later this year.
