While Samsung is widely rumored to hold its next Unpacked event on July 10, a new prediction has appeared, opposing the given launch date and suggesting a later schedule in place. Apart from the new timing, juicy information about the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra model and the price of the company's upcoming foldable smartphones are in tow.

Samsung Unpacked schedule

According to Greek news outlet TechManiacs, Samsung's summer Unpacked event will kick off on July 24 rather than July 10 as other sources have previously predicted. If this were to materialize, it's going to stretch the patience of many fans a little further.

The new date places the event two days ahead of the supposed opening of the Olympic Games in Paris scheduled on July 26. The outlet believes this will better position the new Samsung Galaxy devices given the South Korean brand is also one of the official sponsors for this year's Olympics.

Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 prices

TechManiacs added details about Samsung's next-generation foldable devices as well. Essentially, it mentioned the premium Galaxy Z Fold 6 and clamshell Galaxy Z Flip 6 will command higher price tags for €100 more (which might translate to $100 more as well) than their predecessors, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (review) and Galaxy Z Flip 5 (review).

At the same time, the publication highlighted the rumored Ultra model of Galaxy Z Fold 6 won't be coming in the same event. Instead, it mentioned this will be only ready next year alongside the Galaxy S25 series. Unfortunately, it also highlighted the premium butterfly foldable won't feature the previously rumored improved display crease.

No Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra but you get a new Galaxy Watch X

Interestingly, there were insights about the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 series as well. The news outlet described how the new Galaxy Watch Ultra model that will debut in the lineup will arrive in the form of the Galaxy Watch X. This contradicts chatter of Samsung adopting an Ultra moniker that will directly compete with Apple's Watch Ultra smartwatches.

As for the Galaxy Watch X features, it was tipped to deliver a more rugged build with a 100-meter water-resistant rating. The premium smartwatch is also said to offer longer battery life that is rated to last 100 hours, or about 4 days in smart mode.

Besides the new foldable smartphones and the Galaxy Watch, the source added that the Galaxy Ring will also be announced. However, it doesn't think the smart ring will be made available right after the event.

Which of these Galaxy devices are you looking forward to most? Tell us in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
